GetAppConfigFile in win32 uses CSIDL_LOCAL_APPDATA to be implemented.

I did some research, and I think that CSIDL_APPDATA is a better choice:


They are very similar, but the LOCAL version is a bit more specifc,
and the non-LOCAL has the advantage of a lower requirement. It
requires shell 4.0 while the other requires shell 5.0

Careful that both are for local settings, the name just isn't very intuitive.
