In AAA games the save files isnt are in the same folder wich is game. Save are in users - documents. But in XP and Vista/7 there is a different folders, what is in Win8 i don't know...

Look example:
WinXP saves will be in:
C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Application Data\
But for WinVista/7 its:
C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\

Its possible in CC?

Just save in %appdata%\ it should automatically go to the right folder. At least, it does in Windows 7 and 8 Jayjay2013-08-30 19:19:31

I heard that CC dont work with variables like %appdata%\. But in object Path, i foun a expression "Get App Data"... It may to be a path to %appdata%\. But anyway the file isnt created in this directory...

I even tried to make some file in "C:\". But file is no create... I think may its a problem with Profile rights on Windows?

Yeah, to create in C: drive or Program Files you'll need to have your game run as an administrator

However, the first action to save to the appdata folder is working on my 64 bit Win8 machine. It creates the file in C:\Users\[myusername]\AppData\Roaming\
