If you need to add to the support file search path, you should keep the existing paths but since they are tailored to each user how do account for this?
I have found that you can substitute windows environment variables in the support file search path. For example, %appdata% instead of "C:\Documents and Settings\very_long_username\Application Data" and %programfiles% for "C:\Program Files".
If you are creating a REG file to import to other machines, use these variables in your REG file. My example REG file can be downloaded here.
