Windows 7: EVE on an SSD boot drive

EVE on an SSD boot drive

I just setup a 120gb ssd boot drive /1tb catchall hdd drive on my comp.
I went through the steps for setting it so that the Users folder is located on my hdd.

I wanted to add eveonline to my ssd drive for performace so I copied the file over to my programs(x86) from my old Hdd. When I start the game it starts to load then stops. I found out after reading that I also need to use a file from Users\<username>\appdata\local\CCp (the game is ccp).

My issue is, is that I no longer have a users folder on the c: ssd drive let alone the rest of the folders leading to that file.

Can I create/place that file on the ssd and make the main game.exe look for the appdata file either on the ssd or the hdd.

Just want to keep this game as fast as possible.

Re-download the setup file, and re-install the game to where ever you choose.

That or start the launcher and see if it will patch/setup for you.

Thx for te quick reply.

I cannot download the game becuase for the past 2 weeks eveonline installer has been corrupted with hudreds of posts on not being able to run the installer, thats why I chose to copy the game from a previously working HDD.

I have tried to run the launcher an what happens is the game starts to load then just disappears when the login screen should appear.

In my task manager it shows a exefile.exe each time a press start. (eve allows for multiple instances to be running) but nothing shows as far as the game.

I have a Windows 7 install on a 60gb SSD (assigned to C: in Windows), and a 3 other drives just for storage, and programs. Windows will only boot if the SSD is the only one plugged in. BCD lists this as my only entry, and is calling the C: drive to boot. However when I load my Windows cd, this...

Moved boot manager, 7 drive still refuses to boot without old drive.
I've been trying all day to get to a point where I can format my old hard drive (D). I found out today that, in its infinite wisdom, the Windows 7 installer put the boot manager on a completely separate drive from my new drive (C), the one I selected for installation. Windows 7 is totally...
