VST: "Disk" misassignment

 VST: "Disk" misassignment

This is a warning to all who rely on "Disk" always pointing to the
applications directory. This is ONLY true, if you start the image after
switching to the programs directory. However, under normal conditions
this is not given: a double click on a file manager entry, a document
residing on the Windows 95 desktop, etc.
If you need Disk in your app, get the programs exact path from a call to
the registrydatabase under "app paths" after starting your app.
This needs a correct setting of the registry keys by your  installation
program, of course! If you want the piece of code to do this let me know.
