Cannot find the default system.mdw in Access 2003

Help!

Can anyone tell me where the default system.mdw is located?

I made a new Workgroup Information File and joined it now I want to join
rejoin the default system.mdw file but I can't find it.

I did a search on the entire harddrive for system.mdw and it returned
nothing.

Thanks

On my system it is at...

C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Sy stem.mdw

By default the file-search tool might ignore system areas.

Interesting. I have XP as well so I wonder why the location is inconsistent.
Possibly because I have four different versions installed?
