in reply to writing to a users "My Documents" folder

If you want to play it safe, do not assume that the user's personal folder is on the C drive.

The windows registry (at least on my computer) contains the personal folder for the user

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ software\ microsoft\ windows\ CurrentVersion\ Explorer\ Shell Folders\ Personal\
I suppose that there is a CPAN module that should be able to read the Windows registry.
