    ok.. u try to go
    start > run

    type regedit.

    then try to locate HKEY_CURRENT_USER >
    "VIsual C++or VISUAL STUDio"

    There will be huge sum of key values. if u could find some which linkes to C:
    eg : "

    C:\DOCUME~1\bytes00\My Documents\Visual Studio Projects"
    ^           try to change the value to

    "E:\DOCUME~1\bytes00\My Documents\Visual Studio Projects"

    You can use the drive tool in admin tools or you can use parition magic to change the drive letter assignment and change it back to C: instead of H:
