I'm creating an application in Visual Basic 2010 Express. The app will launch other portable apps from a USB pen drive. The problem is I need to identify what the USB drive letter will be so I can get the correct path to the program file I want to launch. What variable can I use?

Or maybe there's another way to do this?


Example code (where E: should be a variable for the USB drive letter):

Shell ("E:\Programdir\Prog.exe")
