    Template Locations (Any)

    Is there any other location besides Documents and Settings-[username]-Application data-Microsoft-Templates to locate 3rd party templates so that all users of a machine can get access to those templates? When the user selects file|new, I want the tab for my templates to show up. Please don't give the help file solution to have the user manually copy shortcuts to the above location after locating the templates elsewhere. I'm an install developer and I want to be able to uninstall these templates and their residue without a custom uninstall. I would like to avoid shortcuts in every user profile or multiple copies of the templates. Am I dreaming?

    There's Application.TemplatesPath and Application.NetworkTemplatesPath. You don't need to know the user name if you and users follow installation conventions.
