Windows 7: Simple shortcut question, changing drive letter?

08 Nov 2014   #11

Windows 7 Pro x64

I cant even make it save a letter from one drive to another. It automaticly uses the next available.

Did find one solution to use "Bat to exe converter" But for anyone who comes across this and wants to use it, it trys to install a bunch of bullshit. Webroot just deleted the tmp files and it installed properly without the adware stuff.

Now if only it was easy to change the icons on exe files lol

Ive found that the code i was looking for is %drive% but apparently windows cant process it to save that id have to use another program to do it.
The program allows for multiple computers, so you can install it on any other system. See the following link;

Order USB Safely Remove

Its not my computers, I do service work and once they get installed its done. Thats why I cant set drive letters this way or that way because its a one and done kinda thing. Same for programs that handle it.
