Summary0002638: Windows installer doesn't create the macro folder
DescriptionThe installer doesn't create the C:/Users/<name_of_windows_user>/AppData/Roaming/FreeCAD/Macro folder during the installation process, therefore user macro fails to run (e.g. the dxf importer, that has to be manually installed when importing a dwg file, even if the program lets you do it automatically it does not work due to the inexistence of the mentioned folder)
Steps To Reproduceremove C:/Users/<name_of_windows_user>/AppData/Roaming/FreeCAD folder and its contents and reinstall freecad.
TagsNo tags attached.

administrator   ~0007214

It's not up to the installer to do this because it runs in the context of an administrator and thus doesn't even know for which user it has to create the directory.

Instead it's up to the application to do it on start-up.
