can't set VVVVVV directory to This PC

so i just got a new PC (that's why i reinstalled ved) and got VVVVVV make and play edition, however ved thinks the VVVVVV folder is in C:\Users\woods\Documents\VVVVVV which does not exist, and it's actually in This PC\Documents\VVVVVV, and i don't know how to set the directory to any folder in This PC (fyi i don't have the Desktop folder in C:\Users\woods), any help would be appreciated

Both issues are now fixed in the upcoming 1.8.4! (see the comments for more info)
Idea status: completed

Hey, this has come up a few times before, Windows can be very mysterious and even dishonest with its paths in explorer sometimes (Windows is lying about Documents being inside This PC for some reason) and I've also encountered people not being able to select the OneDrive folder within Ved. Could you run this test program and screenshot what it says?

(here's the source code if needed for any reason: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/403718283855134720/685128560180330547/onedrivefolder.c, apparently a few antivirus products don't like this, probably because it's not common/wasn't signed by a big publisher/simply because Norton)

Thanks! I think I can fix both the OneDrive folder not being an option in the files picker (so people don't need to edit the settings file manually), as well as the way Ved detects the VVVVVV folder (so people don't need to correct their VVVVVV folder in the first place).
