Where is ProgramData?

I have an app I am running in POL which on Windows stores a bunch of data in C:\ProgramData\.  The app runs fine in POL so I assume it has the required data.  I have a file I want to put with the app data, so I want to find the C:\ProgramData\ folder, but can't seem to locate it.  It isn't on the virtual drive's C drive, and there is no app data under users/myname/Application Data or users/myname/Local Settings/Application Data.

First make sure you set the Windows version to Windows 7 (or later) because Windows XP doesn't use a "ProgramData" directory.

You should be able to find it here:

/home/myname/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/prefixname/drive_c/Program Data/

Make sure to replace "myname" with your login and "prefixname" with the name of the virtual drive.
