Installing a program to another drive.
Posted on 2001-06-04
OK, this is a peculiar question, so please bear with me.
I have a normal, high-end desktop system with plenty of HD space, but, my recently acquired mini-laptop (Toshiba Libretto 50CT) does not. When I insert a 128MB compact flash card into the the PCMCIA Type II slot of the Libretto through an adapter, it recognizes the card as drive D: Fine. No problems.
I suppose it does not really matter what form the D: drive is, be it compact flash memory or another HD for this question.
It is my desire to actually install programs on drive D:
But, as a tech myself, I understand that most programs want to be installed under C: where they have ready access to Windows files.
Ok, now it gets wierd: Can I duplicate a Windows directory on the D: drive to make program install on the D: drive work? Or, is this simply impossible due to programming coding that defaults to C: .dll's and such?
