I think it's %userprofile%. It should look for %home% first (since those
Windows users who know about the HOME environment variable and set it would
probably prefer it be used) before %userprofile%. NT generates the
%userprofile% variable; I don't think it can be changed.

I am quite suru folks who ask these questions do not compile dia
themselves but use binary installer.
I'm haven't done windows development in a while but...
IIRC there is a registry key that is quite close to the "home
least on NT/2000/XP. I forget the name of the key but it maps to
%WINNT%\profiles\%CURRENT_USER% which is the NT home
directory. A good
alternative might be to use the "My Documents" folder is
defined on all Win32
platforms IIRC (the name of that reg key escapes me as well,
but it wouldn't
be to hard to track down).
