It is possible for 3rd parties to develop installers to add or augment the content within simulator installation. There are 2 key directories where data is stored.

Installation Folder

The installation folder can be determined by reading the following registry key:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\APP_NAME

where APPN_NAME is the name of the application filename (Post T Hengelo.exe, Post T Amsterdam.exe, etc). The parent folder is the installation folder.

Data Folder

The data folder is the folder where saved simulations and other data are stored. This folder is:

C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\My Documents\Signalsoft\APP\

where APP is the name of the application (Post T Amsterdam CS, Post T Hengelo, etc). Note that %userame% is the name of the current user. For Windows Vista and Windows 7, this path should still resolve to the correct folder.
