Localization issue - creating a NW shared folder for "Everyone"

Hi,

I use the following to create a shared folder"

<Component >
        <CreateFolder/>
        <util:User Id="Everyone" Name="Everyone"/>
        <util:FileShare Id="InstallerFolderShare" Name="SharedFolder" Description="SharedFolder description">
                <util:FileSharePermission User="Everyone" GenericRead="yes" Read="yes" ReadPermission="yes" ReadAttributes="yes"/>
        </util:FileShare>
</Component>


It works on US-english, but not on French computers, because the "Everyone" user does not exist (The equivalent user account on a French OS is "Tout le monde").
I therefore assume it is different for every language.

How do I go about implementing this so it works on every localized version of Windows?

Thanks
