2012 Pro: Adding files to My Documents

It is my understanding there should be a PersonalFolder for this.
But I can't seem to find it.

In application files if I right click Destination computer, Show Predefined Folder is greyed out.
PersonalFolder is also not on the drop down list of destinations under components

Its an install script project

Am I being an dim?
