I am mentaining an application that ,when I try to run, gives an error message : "You must have a Drive M:\, mapped to Path="\some\network\path" " .... so I wnt to simulate that this path exists in order to run the application -the path is only somewhere to throw output files to- .... I don't currently know where the configurations are to edit the path and I just want to simulate that it exists .... I thought I can create a virtual machine that contains this path but very costy .... any other suggestions?
You must have a Drive M:\, mapped to Path="\some\network\path"
the path is only somewhere to throw output files to
You can use
subst to map
M: to a directory of your choice, for example
subst M: C:\temp
To remove the
subst M: /D
F:\test>subst m: c:\temp F:\test>dir m: Volume in drive M has no label. Volume Serial Number is C8D0-DF1E Directory of M:\ 01/05/2016 22:48 <DIR> . 01/05/2016 22:48 <DIR> .. 21/04/2016 22:43 <DIR> acrord32_sbx 14/07/2015 11:01 0 FXSAPIDebugLogFile.txt 30/04/2016 10:08 262,144 ICACHE-04044202.tmp 30/04/2016 10:08 262,144 ICACHE-14B5B6BB.tmp 30/04/2016 10:08 262,144 ICACHE-19EE2C4D.tmp 30/04/2016 10:08 262,144 ICACHE-55F8C5A0.tmp 30/04/2016 10:08 262,144 ILIST-00000000.tmp 30/04/2016 10:08 262,144 ILIST-22EF1586.tmp 30/04/2016 10:08 262,144 ILIST-28CAE025.tmp 30/04/2016 10:08 262,144 ILIST-6E36D60E.tmp 28/04/2016 21:36 <DIR> mozilla-temp-files 19/03/2016 00:36 192,512 sfamcc00001.dll 19/03/2016 00:36 158,720 sfareca00001.dll 01/05/2016 10:29 16,384 ~DF691E2F90109AA7E3.TMP 12 File(s) 2,464,768 bytes 4 Dir(s) 72,210,866,176 bytes free F:\test>subst m: /d
