In C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FS9 where xxx is your logon.

I would suggest downloading Everything https://www.voidtools.com/downloads/ as it is a blindingly fast search tool that would show it as you type.

What are the files of the suggested download good for? They are so strange, no real clear name, few explanation,... Like untrustable files!? I really don't trust them.... Sorry!

The Everything tool is a simple but very fast search tool, amazingly fast. There is even a portable version which is the one I use.
Once it creates its database, a few minutes on initial load, it shows you files as you type.

I have used it for years, there is no problem with this software but I can understand a mistrust of anything that you don't know about.
I would say try the portable version, far better than anything MS has.

OK, when I upgraded to 10 from 7 the upgrade automatically moved it there.

So I have to ask why the question? Are you trying to find it, or is something not working. I have 90+ folders that have been created by the system or programs in C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\.

I seem to be missing something information here. Is this a brand new 10 installation/computer and you are trying to install FS9, or is it installed but does not work?
