Portable Variables - WinXP versus WinVista

I am assuming the @docs@ portable variable would be equivalent, on WinXP to:
@USERPROFILE@"\My Documents"

Is Toucan "Vista aware" enough to know the absolute path on Vista is:
C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents
rather than:
C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\My Documents

Just a thought.

Indeed

it should be, I shall test it on my Vista machine, but I don't anticipate any problems.

I have not tried it yet.

I have had too many other "brush fires" to deal with Toucan, so I have not tried to experiment with the variables in Toucan Portable.

The machine I use most is WinXP Pro and I have not had enough time on the Vista machine I occasionally use to test out the variables.
