Yes, I've read that.  What goes still unanswered is if that's the only
place Windows ever looks for those files.  I guess yes, but I can't find
no positive confirmation.

I'm sure they think that and there's probably a PowerPoint with lots of
bullet points that says so.  But I've yet to meet anyone who thinks it

themselves couldn't make it work without those exceptions whose
documentation is not easy to find.
