It does, but I think it depends on the WinOS and system configuration rather than on the VFP version. For instance, on ME machine, ?GETENV("USERPROFILE") gave me empty string because on WinME I've got no such thing as another user. I am the sole user of this machine, even though I do log into our LAN on this machine. And we have some customers with end users still on Win9.xx out there (hospitals, for instance).
All right, somewhere between (Yuri's) WScript and (your) GETENV() - I'll figure out "end user's heaven" where (s)he can create/read/write/modify/delete at will.

Thanks!

Ilya
