    I just clean installed 7 Ultimate and want to insert my Ff profile in %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming.......

    But there is no App Data Folder.... I suippose it only appears for the admin?

    I am the only user, and my account says Admin....

    Where is my problem?

    Thank you

    Thats hard to believe.

    try %appdata%, the folder must exist :p
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...

    Look... what do you want me to tell you, that I am blind? If I open the user Folder then AppData is NOT inside there, my guess is, that for some reason I am not opening it as Admin....
    This morning, before the new-install in the old user folder, it was there

    I am having a similar problem, but JG: the Mozilla Folder for the profile can be accessed using %APPDATA% in the serarch line.

    But the AppData Folder should turn up in the User Folder????? And it does not in mine either, after I did a re-install with the daz loader...

    How do I get to the status of Administrator, if it is not available through the context menu, as it now happens in some folders???
    (Should I start my own thread with ttha question?)

    The only way I can see mine is to select to view hidden files and folders. Then look in the right panel since for some reason it doesn't show in the directory tree on the left as a folder under the user. But, as usual, YMMV.
