Path to the default data directory.

You can use this directory to store the data files LabVIEW generates, such as .lvm or .txt files. When you install LabVIEW, the installer creates a LabVIEW Data subdirectory in the default file directory for the operating system to help you organize and locate the data files LabVIEW generates.

This property is similar to the Default Data Directory option on the Paths page of the Options dialog box.
