In Reply to: Problems with loading a program on a drive other than C: by Dizzyt
I can't see where you have stated the problem. Sorry.
"You 'ported' these games to the gaming rig". What does that mean?
I will just say that moving program files from one OS to another rarely works. It may have worked in Windows 95, but Microsoft stopped that when they moved to shared DLLs and other things.
We always say this in these forums. If you want programs and applications, (including games), that are installed on one computer to work on a different computer, then you need to "Install them" onto the new computer.
Whether the programs are installed onto the root drive or some other drive or partition shouldn't matter, although some applications may baulk at that. I can think of Adobe products that insist on being installed on the C drive, and there may be others.
