Hello All.

First off before my question, this project is incredible.  I cant believe how far it has come.   

Anyways, I have just about everything i need in my current build, however i cant seem to find a way to change the default installation drive letter from X:/ to C:/. 

Ive gone through the plug-in's and i cant seem to find any way to do this.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.


OH and as for why?   Our company has created a couple proprietary applications that require them be launched in the root of C:/.  The first check that is performed is hardcoded in the application that it checks if itself is in C:/Programname.  In addition to that the next check is for C:/Windows/Microsoft.Net/Framworkversion.   Obviously done by lazy programmers, i was hoping i could find a way to have this built where the install drive is C:/ vs X:/

Thankyou again all.

No, there is no option.

Just use subst to add another drive letter for the systemdrive.

First remove the drive letter of C:\ drive, if it exists.

Code: [Select]
mountvol C: /D

Than use subst

Code: [Select]
subst C: X:\
