can someone explain how I can have a .lnk file on a cd-rom that can have parameters to locate the cd-rom path no matter what drive letter it happens to be in? In other words, no matter if it's D:folder\file or E:\folder\file...as a .lnk file has an absolute path...

thanks!

Link files actually do support relative paths. See this question on Stack Overflow for more details. There are also some tricks you can use, like creating a link to cmd.exe, which will always run, and then launching your executable from the present directory.
