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?

not so gray matter

W7 Ult. x64 | OS X
 
 

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
