Windows 7: Installers that add to the Start menu, in XP

Installers that add to the Start menu, in XP

I have some program installers that, in XP, put a folder of shortcuts into the [Start] >> All programs menu (actually into the folder C:\Documents and Settings\DarkStar\Start Menu\Programs).

When I run that installer in Windows 7, where, if anywhere, will that folder of shortcuts be placed?

The Start Menu items are located in one of two places depending on whether you're looking for the global shortcuts or the individual ones.

Individual:
x:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu

Global:
x:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu
