Project searching missing drive

Hi,

I've just moved several  projects to a new computer and really need to clean things up.

On the original PC I had 2 disc drives, c: and d:

A lot of my developement tools-search paths  were on D: drive..

Now, the projects are searching the new D: drive, which is CD drive.
If I don't have a CD in the drive, the compile procedure takes SO long its laughable, 3 - 4 minutes........ Insert a CD, any CD, or a DVD and the compile times are back to 10 seconds.....

Obviously I must have references to the D drive path in my projects.. I've tried deleting all the .cfg and .res files but this appears to make no difference.

Where else are paths stored??

Any other areas to look?

If you are talking about search path then goto Tools, Environment menu, Click Library tab where you can specify the search path.

No, it's much more subtle than that, I've checked the Environment menu.

Delphi has just been installed on my new machine and NEW projects are fine.

It's just those I've migrated from my old machine are still looking for the non-existant D: drive..

Look into your .DPR file uses list. e.g.

uses
  Unit1 in 'D:\MyFolder\Unit1.pas' {Form1},

Its probably the .dsk files... close your project, delete the .dsk file, and check reopening the project again

Thank you for the suggestions. Neither were correct.

BUT they gave me the clue I needed, so please have the points, even if it's just for being there when you were needed.

There was a search path to d:\utils defined in Project/options/directories/search path.
I've deleted this and the speed is back to normal...
