[SOLVED] WinMX paths??

Q: [SOLVED] WinMX paths??

Hi guys.
I've just tried to use WinMX and found that it is showing the full paths as to where files are stored on the users' HDs.

Can I turn this off? It makes it really difficult to see the file you're looking for, with all this C:\My Documents\My Music\..... crap at the front.

Thanks.

I guess this may be a tiny bit off the subject here, but I am attempting this in windows 7.

I have a program file manager tool called 'Directory Opus' that is capable of calling windows external programs and passing them the current directory the file manager is sitting on.

So far so good.

Now I want to call a cygwin (linux/unix emulator for windows) terminal with that file manager.

Checking properties on the cygwin Icon I got the path: C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico -

So it is a path to a command and an argument to that command.

Actually I guess it is 2 arguments to a command since I think '-' in that position means to feed anything on STDIN to the command. At least that would be true in unix shell programming.

So using the Directory opus setup I pass this call:
'@async:C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico - <and here add {s}>'

So the call ends up:
'@async:C:\cygwin\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico - {s}'

That call does just what it is supposed to. It passed the current file absolute address however cygwin terminal does not understand the windows path notation. If I were passing it: C:\subdir\blah\ It would just say 'No such file' Cygwin terminal wants to see /cygdrive/c/subdir/blah Or at least I think that is what is happing.

So to cut to the chase.... I'd like to put a little wrapper to Cygwin terminal in there with the code necessary to convert 'C:\subdir\blah\' to '/cygdrive/c/subdir/blah/'

But, I do not know how ... Read more

Hey Guys, I have a program to clean the registry and when i do a scan it comes up with heaps of missing or invalid path errors but once I click cleanup it fixes them all but then if I do it again the next day I have a lot again..I'm just wondering if these are something to worry about? Or do they just come about from deleting files and are no problem?

Thanks.

i got a new hp pavilion laptop; os is windows 7 home premium 64-bit. when i booted it up the first time, there was already an administrator account on it, bearing the name of the company who had sent me the laptop. i renamed the user account and the computer to my name; but the paths connected to the user profile and the user profile itself (under "users" on the c drive) still have the old name. i did some reading and it seems that one has to rename the account back to the old name, then create a new administrator account with the name one wants and transfer the profile from the old account to the new one, then delete the old account if everything is working well; however, i believe that these instructions are rather for windows xp than for windows 7, and i have no idea how to copy a profile. i am not a computer geek and cannot fiddle around with the registry, and i'm new to windows 7. so: how can i rename the profile paths and my profile folder to MY name - or is it impossible to change, and will i just have to live with it? i also hope that if the situation cannot be changed, then this is simply a cosmetic 'bug' and won't cause any problems.

Hello JoeLAD, welcome to TSF!

I'd suggest completely uninstalling and reinstalling the Java JRE in it's default location. Example: C:\Program Files\Java.

Afterwords, from what your trying to fix, you'll need to manually setup your system environment variables so that it will locate what it requires from the JRE. Please refer to this link for instructions to setup the environment variable to locate where your JRE is installed on your system.

Hi, I'm a complete techno moron, and I was having trouble with my Win Mx 2.6, so I decided (stupidly as it turns out) to upgrade to 3.3. I installed the thing (I think) and it seemed to work okay, it was up and running until suddenly I got this blue screen with a WARNING a fatal application has occured message. I've seen that before a few times so I didn't think much of it, but now everytime I try to click on the WinMX icon it just kind of explodes and I get the same thing, plus a few more ominous messages like your system is dangerously low, etc. (It's not my hard drive, I checked and there's plently of room left.) If anyone could advise me how to at least recover my WinMx previously downloaded files, if not fix the thing, I'd really apprciate it. Thanks!
 

A:(Solved) WinMX

First off you need to update your anti-virus and run a scan set to scan All Files. You can double-check your on-board virus scanner by scanning on-line at http://housecall.antivirus.com.

If Windows says your dangerously low on memory it has nothing whatever to do with your HDD. HDDs have storage not memory! It's referring to System Random Access Memory (RAM).

You'll need to spell out each error message exactly as it appears, word for word, symbol by symbol and what you're doing when those errors/messages occur.

You need a free firewall installed like Zone Alarm or Sygate.

Cure Your Ills With the System File Checker
Windows 98

When you're having trouble with Windows 98--and who doesn't at some point--you might want to try a little-known utility called the System File Checker. Close all open programs and go to Run in the Start menu. Type sfc and click OK.
Check the Scan For Altered Files radio button and click Start. SFC will look for files that have been corrupted. If it finds any, you can use it to extract clean versions of the files directly from your installation disk.

Or

To start System File Checker, follow these steps:
Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, click System Information, and then click System File Checker on the Tools menu.

Hello, I'm new to this forum! I found it googling for help on WinMX. I've searched through the forum and saw that some questions on firewalls were being answered. I wasn't able to find anything to help me, though. I'm hoping some of you are still willing to answer questions. I would RTMF if the online manual was up and running.

http://www.winmx.com/v322/help/index.html

My problem is that WinMX will not return any search queries when I use a primary connection to the network. WinMX only displays, "waiting for results." I CAN receive queries when I use the secondary connection. With both connections I am able to connect to the network (I get a green light with both). I'm running WinMX on a win98 box and I have a linux box acting as my router. My firewall is written with IPTABLES. I have WinMX 3.22 installed. I configured WinMX to receive TCP connections on port 65000 and send/receive UDP connections also on port 65000. My firewall is configured to allow these packets through these ports. I have also tried reinstalling WinMX.

My questions is, why do I receive search results with a secondary connection and NOT a primary connection? As I stated earlier I am able to connect to the network with a primary connection.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.

OK, here goes...

I'm gonna lay a computer question on you and see if you can help me (I'm using Windows ME)...

Background: Left my comp on last night waiting in line to download a song (didn't end up getting the song, but that's not the biggest problem). Woke up this morning to the blue screen of death and could only reboot to get things working. Rebooted and got a message ("Dw has caused an error in DW.EXE. Dw will now close."). This gave me only one option: to click on the "close" button on the dialogue box. Once I did that, my computer seems to work OK, with one exception...trying to run WinMX sent me back to the blue screen of death with this message: "File Name: NAVAP (02) + 000198DB Error: 0E: 0028: C02F3827." Every time I rebooted, I still got the message about Dw causing an error to DW.EXE and have to close the box.

Now: I did a search for dw.exe and found a program called "Dw" in my C:/Windows/DownloadWare folder. I threw that program in my recycle bin and rebooted...great, error message gone on restart.

BUT: When I turn on my computer, it boots up fine. Everything seems to run fine in terms of programs except for WinMX. I tried uninstalling WinMX and re-installing it and after it downloads and I try setting it up, I get the same: blue screen of death. I even got the blue screen of death when I tried to uninstall it initially.

Obviously something is very wrong, probably some kind of corrupt file (maybe)... Read more

You might want to try a "System Restore". Win ME has that option.I don't know how long you've had WinMX, but you can go back to a time before you had WinMX and restore your system to that date. Then check it out.

Ok well it so happens that the files I want to share are all over said partitions and when I tell winmx what folders to share It all seems to be fine and groovy BUT when winmx sends the list of stuff im sharing to the central server or whatever it is it does to let others know what stuff I got it seems to only send them what files Im sharing up to the I: drive and no more so most of the stuff Im sharing goes unbeknown to the winmx community at large. Ok why does winmx elicit such aberrant behavior? Is there a limit to how many folders, files, partitions or gigs you can share? Im trying to share around 6000 files, in around 600 folders(yeah I know its quite a few, but I like to use directories to classify data(crazy uh? ) which comes around 95gigs of total data.

I just downloaded WinMX 3.22. I'm able to perform all the actions but I found that the response time to my mouse is very slow. When I select a button it takes about about 2 seconds to respond the the action requested. Its the same when I type in my search words.

I did not have this problem with version 2.6. nor do I have it with other programs on my computer.

I have a DSL hookup through a phone line, but my uploads and downloads are coming and going at an acceptable rate .

A:Paths , Librabries ?

You need to remember that library's only point to the actual file somewhere on the network or on your own machine in the "user" files. If you need to delate something from the library you should delate the file from the actual source "my pictures" My documents" "my music".

But there is a way to make it work like you want.

Just go into Windows Media Player, choose the "organize" tab then "options" then choose the Library tab and set it to "delate files from the computer when delated from the Library. Although I believe that only works if you are delating files from Library of the machine that contains the source files.

That should allow for delating from the Library, but only from the machine that the files reside on, I don't believe it will work accross the network. It think it still works best if you delate from the file source instead of the Library.

Administrators and System should have Full Control and Read access, Power Users should have Read and Special, and Users should have Read access. Creator Owner should have Special. These should all be greyed out, meaning they are inherited.

All,

Looking for a way to add a single file to an existing .ZIP file, but need to specify the path within the existing file structure.

Example - I ZIP a directory and it's subs with all of their files. It has about 6 different subs and each of them have up to 10 subs of their own.
C:\WEBSHARE\WWWROOT\PE\SUB1\file1.asp

I need to add 1 single file and tell it that the path I want it to go to is:
C:\WEBSHARE\WWWROOT\PE\SUB1\file2.asp

BUT - the file is not coming from the same directory on the system being used to create the ZIP.

Please help.

Thanks,
Shaun

How to create m3u file from mp3s in different folders on your computer ?


It seems to only create mp3 playlist only from mp3s in the same folder.

to save to one m3u file, not m3u file in each folder from the mp3s within that folder.


I know I can edit the file so it goes to different paths using notepad, but that would defeat the purpose of this program making it easier to save playlst from diferent mp3s in diffrent folders.

Hello! I recently upgraded my computer with an SSD for boot and main programs and use my 1TB HDD for general programs and media storage. The thing is I want it to by default install to my D:\ drive.

Now the only solution I see is editing the registry ProgramFilesDir - Which has some serious flaws. It will attempt to launch every program off of the D:\ drive even when it is stored on C:\ and about 9 out of 10 times, it still default installs to C:\.

Hello,

A little background first.

I have a shortwave radio that is of a new type where a lot of the functions such as filters, etc. is done via software that resides on the PC.

The radio is mfg. by the WINRADIO company.
The model of the radio is a G31 DDC

After playing with the radio, it automatically Saves the frequencies that you have listened to, and puts them into Memory to be able to recall them later.
The file that it creates is called "User Memory"..

I seem to have the User Memory File in the right place, I think, but the "path" to get there seems to be different.

I have one path of:
Libraries/ Documents/ WINRADIO/ G31 DDC/ User Memory

And another path of:
C:/ Users/ Bob/ My Documents/ WINRADIO/ G31 DDC/ User Memory

They both seem to lead to the correct file of User Memory.

a. My main question: Is there really only one file of User Memory, but two different ways or paths to get to it ?

b. What's with Libraries; I've never set that up ? What are they ?


c. Notice that one path has My "Documents", and the other just "Documents".

If anyone could explain this for me, I would be most appreciative.

Much thanks,
Bob

A:Invalid File Paths

Don't use registry cleaners. If you continue to use them, chances are that crashes will be among the least of your problems. Those things are junk, do only harm, and you should be thankful you were even able to reboot. Performance is not improved by using them, they remove needed entries, and they create their own "errors" so that they can "fix" them, making worse errors in the process.

Thanks,

A:How do you interpret paths like C:\DOCUME~1\...

Hi.

This kind of path is contraction of the real folder or file names so that they are compatible with the old 8.3 DOS filename format. I don't know why it is necessary, but in (my) theory it works this way:
Long names are stripped of all spaces, even between words.
If the resulting string, without extension, is longer than 8 characters, the 6 leftmost characters are taken and an index appended, to distinguish between similar names.
So "ASDFGHJKLQWE" becomes "ASDFGH~1" while ASDFGHJKLRTZ" becomes "ASDFGH~2"

So the one you submitted translates to something like

C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Temp
Where username is different for each user of the computer.

There are still doubts about what the possible and legal upgrade paths are for Windows 7.

Below I tried to compile some information in a way which I hope will be helpful.

Thanks to my friend Kari for his valuable contribution
Any other additions or comments are much welcome

Definitions:
1) Upgrade: to move from Windows XP or Windows Vista to Windows 7
2) Custom or Clean Install: wipes the previous installation and install Windows 7 anew. Does not preserve user files
3) In-Place Upgrade: upgrades from specific versions of Vista to specific versions of Windows 7, preserving user files and programs.
4) Upgrade version: Windows 7 license for those who own a valid license of XP or Vista
5) Full retail version: Windows 7 license to install on any PC, independent of previous installations or ownership. Can be reinstalled on other computers (when activated the previous installation is no longer valid)
6) Full OEM version :Windows 7 license to install on one PC, independent of previous installations. Can only be re-installed on same computer and hardware setup

Upgrade paths
The chart below shows in what situations one can perform an in-place upgrade (e.g. from Vista Business to Windows 7 Professional) without the need to migrate files or programs, and the situations when one needs to do a Custom (Clean) Install and replace the data in the target disc. This is the case for all Windows XP owners or Windows Vista Starter. In this case you will need to migrate your personal files ... Read more

* insert the Windows vista BCD ID, too small for me to read (take out the *'s)

ok, Vista should be working now, please test it to make sure

For Ubuntu: - optional; this will rename "nst Linux Loader" to "Wubi Ubuntu"

bcdedit /set {*insert here*} description "Wubi Ubuntu"




* insert the "nst Linux Loader" BCD ID, too small for me to read (take out the *'s)

Firstly, context: My student edition of Autodesk Maya was not working (something about the license being invalid or 'not found', and so when I searched for the error message online, a solution was to go into Environments and Paths, and replace/edit or add one for C:/Autodesk. It didn't work, and I ended up just uninstalling and reinstalling the program manually for it to work.
However, apparently I screwed around really badly in there, because now important things won't open, such as my MalwareBytes program. When I try, a window will popup and say this:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbam.exe
The system could not find the environment option that was entered."
So, naturally, I try to find/open the Environments and Paths thing again, right? Nope. I can't open that either:
"Windows cannot find '%windir%\system32\SystemPropertiesAdvanced.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."
Even though I typed 'Environment' in my search bar to find it.

So I've been trying to use system file checker, and encountered a problem where it can't repair a file. I found this page detailing how to manually fix the problem:

Use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

I was fine until step 2, where it says

"For example, type takeown /f E:\windows\system32\extremely_simplified_example.dll"

The problem is, my CBS.log file says stuff like:

Cannot repair member file [l:24{12}]"FWPKCLNT.SYS"
Unable to repair \SystemRoot\WinSXS\Manifests\\[l:24{12}]"FWPKCLNT.SYS"

and I don't know how to translate that into a path to use with the takeown command. I searched for that file using explorer and found a dozen different copies, so I'm not sure which one to replace.

Semi-related questions: Can I just replace them all? I'm planning on using a copy of the file from a similar system that works, is that ok?

Unable to repair \SystemRoot\WinSXS\Manifests\\[l:24{12}]"FWPKCLNT.SYS"
The first line says that SFC cannot repair the FWPKCLNT.SYS file.

The second line is the path of the file. "SystemRoot" is a variable "%SystemRoot%" that is actually just a shortcut for "C:\Windows". This leaves you with the file path as:C:\Windows\WinSXS\Manifests\FWPKCLNT.SYS
Doing a search on the C: drive for the listed FWPKCLNT.SYS file would help give you all of it's locations if needed as well.

Hi friends!

I'm experiencing a very strange bug with a custom library. On the odd occasion when I open an explorer pane and navigate to my library on the left-hand side, two of my included folders - which are both located in 'C:\Program Files\...' will change to a non-existent 'C:\Program Files (x86)\...' version of the same folder. If I click on that folder in the library pane it will tell me the folder doesn't exist.

It happens infrequently but often enough to be annoying. It's not immediately clear what causes it or why it stops. When it happened just now I closed all open explorer panes and opened a new one, and the library displayed the correct 'non x86' folder structure.

Any idea what causes this and how it can be avoided?

Does anyone know how to get Windows to recognize that these are three separate drives and allow them to maintain their own drive letters?

Thanks.

I have a program that plays music on VB 2008 Express Edition. It accesses music from my memory stick because I'm going to need to move the program to another computer. However, the memory stick was always listed under the J:\ drive, but now randomly it's listed under the K:/ drive. Is there a way so that I can just get the music "into" the program so that it can just play the music no matter what computer it is on. P.S. I also need to get this program to run on XP, and the file path is E:\, I'm afraid that since mine changed randomly, the XP computer I'm moving it to will also change randomly.

Please Help!
 

A:File Paths Changing Randomly

You can change the drive letter by going to Administrative Tools in Control Panel and them going into Computer Management, there is a section called Disk Management which will show all connected drives, from there you can change the drive path.

When I first installed Win 7 I simply went with the default user name of "Owner". I wouldn't mind changing it now but I'm concerned about the effect on my shortcuts and so on.

If I rename it, will Windows go through and automatically update all the shortcuts and program paths and so on? My gut reaction is "Of course it will" but I've learned to be cautious with Windows! Will I end up with a lot of tidying up to do?

A:Will changing username mess up paths?

Only the username will be changed. The c:\users\<username> path does not get changed and this can lead to more confusion.

Better method:

1) Create two new accounts. One in the username you want, and one temporary...you can even call it TEMP if you like.

2) Log in as TEMP. Use Windows Easy Transfer to migrate all files and settings from your old account to the new one you just created.

3) When this is complete, log in as your new user and make sure everything is there and working.

4) Delete your old user and TEMP.

Hello everyone! New here with this problem, hope I'm entering it under the right category (if not, sorry)

I have a local and a network folder embeded in a tiddlywiki page in iframes.
They both contain folders, .doc and .xls files with both greek and english names.
I've set up the open office plugin to show the aforementioned files within browser, so the frames work as
a sort of view area (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=94384&page=2 ).

At the same time I need to be able to open the folders / files in their native windows environment.
The above configuration doesn't allow that as .doc and .xls links open in the open office environment by default.

A number of firefox add-ons (Open With 4.0 / https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/11097/,
IE Tab 2 / https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/92382/) provide the functionality to open firefox links in different browsers and/or programs.

I've set up explorer, winword.exe and excel.exe as manual entries in the Open With add-on which allows you to right click on firefox links and select to open them with these applications. Other add-ons allow you to do the same thing with internet explorer or a chosen application.

They all present the following problem:

The plugin works perfectly when opening the folder file:///C:/a with explorer

Love 7 so far! But today I needed to access a share (\\servername\share) but when I went to type it, it came up cannot connect. We're on a domain with AD, and noticed in eventvwr that GP not processing:

The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file \\internal.domain\SysVol\internal.domain\Policies\{5682A7A2-6BAE-4655-8DB6-7CAF8ECC6042}\gpt.ini from a domain controller and was not successful. Group Policy settings may not be applied until this event is resolved. This issue may be transient and could be caused by one or more of the following:
a) Name Resolution/Network Connectivity to the current domain controller.
b) File Replication Service Latency (a file created on another domain controller has not replicated to the current domain controller).
c) The Distributed File System (DFS) client has been disabled.

Also would not map network drives. Anyways, ended up doing a system restore to a known working point in time, and that seemed to work, until I rejoined the computer to domain (since it had lost the trust relationship because of the system restore), but after a few group policies processed, and a couple critical updates were installed, it broke again. So now I unplug from the network at bootup, login, then plug network back in, and it seems to be a workaround for now, but hopefully it's only a temporary one. Anyone have any ideas?

I would check DNS and that your clock is set to match your domain controller.

I changed the user name from "user001" to "user888". That changed the name on the login/logout screens. But the user folders and paths all stayed with the old name "user001". As a result some things, like the name installed programs will grab and use, are still called "user001".

Is there a way, short of re-installing Windows, to change all the appropriate folders, paths and registry entries to read "user888" and get rid of the old user name completely?

Hi all,

I was hoping someone knowledgeable could clear up some confusion I have on the upgrade process. I've googled my questions and it seems there is no definitive answer and that Microsoft themselves seem to not be consistent on their treatment of upgrades.

I originally wasn't going to upgrade but at $39.99 for a Pro version, I can't resist. I am aware that you need a current install to upgrade. I was hoping that during the upgrade process I would be given an option to chose the key I wished to invalidate for the upgrade. Now, I am quite fond of my Windows 7 license and am going to keep it around in case I don't like Windows 8 and just because it is a great OS.

So my dilemma is as follows:
I have a couple full licenses for XP and Vista. I also have the OEM license of Vista Business that is on a sticker on my computer. I am resigned to the fact that I'll have to uninstall my current OS and install an old one for the upgrade and I can live with that.

I would, however, like to get rid of my most worthless license for the upgrade, which in my opinion is the one OEM one on a sticker on my laptop. So I guess the question is would the limitations of the OEM license, which is that it is only valid for that specific machine be attached to the upgraded version. As the Pro upgrade is for a limited time only, I imagine any future computer I will buy will have the Home version with it and I would like to preserve my access to the Pro version as well as to have the option to have a...

A:Upgrade paths and future limitations

Hello jaebberwock. Welcome to the Eight Forums.

You mentioned "in case I don't like Windows 8" so I guess you haven't used it yet.
Based on that assumption, I would suggest downloading Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation for free. (good for 90 days) Burn it to a dvd. Do you know anything about imaging? Do you have any external drives? I would consider learning a little about external drives so that you could make some images? Are you on a budget? Can you afford to spend a few bucks on imaging software? Search online for imaging software. You could image your XP system without affecting it by an upgrade. Same with Vista or Windows 7. Image what you want to save so that they could be returned to the condition they were in. I cannot help you with your questions about upgrading licenses and keys so maybe someone else will chime in. Personally, I am not a fan of dual booting, many problems could happen. Opinions vary.

Download Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation

From my point of view, I would image backup XP, Vista, Windows 7 using the software of your choice (perhaps something like Acronis). Then, install Windows 8 on unallocated space. Do you know what unallocated space is? I apologize. I know nothing about what you know. Anyway, good luck. There are tutorials here:

Hi there,
I have been looking for a simple way to begin to understand the command line in windows. I'm trying to import python code from a folder, and at the moment I can only get my code to run if I save my folder in the default c:\Users\Jamie\<full path>. My question is in two parts
1. How can I run simple scripts from anywhere else (say, my documents)
2. Can I edit paths somehow such that typing % python <script name> will run my script, from the default C:\Users\Jamie, or otherwise?

There is an Excel App on our network that gets used by multiple users. In this app there are some VLookups that pull information from other spreadsheets. The problem we are having is that the physical paths in the VLookups are being changed to relative paths. Instead of using L:\Files\somefile.xls it changes to \\server\share\somefile.xls.

When this happens the VLookup stops working, it's odd because both paths are legetimate but only the one with the physical path works. This is happening on several different spreadsheets and the formulas have to continualy remapped.

All users are using Office 97 but the OS are mixed, Win ME, 2000 and 98. Any ideas?

Here are the Vlookups:

Before
=VLOOKUP($C18,'L:\shared files\[EmpDataLog.xls]RATE'!$B$10:$AZ$642,5)

After

On my desktop-computer i have shared some folders with my home network. Then i changed their paths, as i reorganized myself. Now it seems, when I acces the network, those folders paths dont seem to be updated, as i cant access them.

I can now of course "unshare", rename and share them again, which makes them again accessible through the network, but the old "folder names" still remain. why is that, how can i correct it?

Same problem with some old "synched folders".

Last week Microsoft announced the Windows 10 editions that will power personal computing and Enterprise systems across the growing wide range of devices available. With this announcement Microsoft also reconfirmed they will offer free upgrades to Windows 10 for qualifying Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 devices for the first year after the launch of Windows 10.

This week, a blog post on Microsoft's Australia Partner Network offered more detailed information about the specific paths for upgrading to Windows 10. As previously mentioned, but now further spelled out, devices that take advantage of the free upgrade will receive ongoing Windows 10 updates for the life of that device and the free upgrade to Windows 10 will be delivered through Windows Update.

Hiyas

Here's my story. I've just managed to change a systems boot letter from E:\ to C:\. The machine is working fine now, but all the programs that were installed are still looking in E:\ which no longer exsists. I've gone through and changed a few of these paths manually, but after an hour of that i realised it'll take far too long to do it this way.

What i'm looking for is a tool to look through the registry and replace all instances of "E:\" with "C:\". Does anyone know if such a product is available? It's be a great help.

Thanks in advance
