Please help me find location for authorization.xml

Please help a Windows 7 noobie AKA total dummy.

Windows 7 Pro 64bit.

I inadvertently moved this folder - authorization.xml size 2.37Kb dated 11/17/2011 and have no idea where to put it back if in fact it is necessary.

I've attached a screen capture hoping it might help in identifying it.

Would really appreciate your help.

I don't have authorization.xml on my Win 7 Pro X64 system that I can find.

I did find this with a Google search though: Windows 7 and VMware Server - Server Fault

Thanks for the reply.

It was definitely on my hard drive and was there so I'll wait for another reply.

I do, however, thank you for your contribution.

Authorization.xml is a folder? Are you certain of that?

No, that's an xml file in a subdirectory named "2" located on your root drive.

What else is in the subdirectory?

No, stupidly, I moved it to my C:\2 on my hard drive

I don't know where to put it where it was.

Like I said, I'm a dummy.

Open the xml file (use notepad), copy the contents, and paste them in your next reply. Also, right click on the xml file, select properties, look under all the tabs, and see if there is any information that may identify what created the file. Looking at the snapshot makes me think it's an xml file used during a previous Windows update.
