How to read system root from registry

Hi all,

 

I read system temp from registry, and it gives me "%SystemRoot%\TEMP".  Then where can I get system root then?

 

thanks for any help.

What about  Get System Directory VI for the system directory (or Temporary Directory Function for the temporary directory)?

 Temporary Directory Function returns user temp path, not system temp.

 

I am using Labview 8.5, couldn't find Get System Directory VI .

 

Thanks.

 You can use either System Exec or call the ExpandEnvironmentStrings function in the Windows API. See attached example (LV 8.2)
