Can somebody tell me (on Windows 2003) where the 'application subdirectory
in the user's profile' is? I want to set up a pgpass.conf file. Nothing has
worked so far. I am on version 8.0.0.

---------------------- from the PostgreSQL
Documentation -----------------------------------------

The file .pgpass in a user's home directory is a file that can contain
passwords to be used if the connection requires a password (and no password
has been specified otherwise). On Microsoft Windows the file is named
%APPDATA%\postgresql\pgpass.conf (where %APPDATA% refers to the Application
Data subdirectory in the user's profile).
