This directory (folder) structure is valid since version Pm9.0.0.

In versions PROMOTIC 8 and lower the current PROMOTIC version was stored e.g. in the "C:\Pm" folder and the applications in another folder (e.g. C:\PmProj).
Such structure had certain disadvantages:
- It was complicated to work with multiple PROMOTIC versions. Other versions had to be located in individual folders (e.g. C:\Pm75) and the versions had to be switched by means of PmReg.bat file.
- This caused that the PROMOTIC system including the applications were scattered into multiple folders on the disk.
- There were no version manager PmManager.
