Changing the Location of Win98 Installation Files


If you've added a new drive to your system, chances are that your CD-ROM drive got a new drive letter. Now every time you need to update some Windows files, you have to tell the Windows 98 Installer where to find the Win98 CD-ROM. Here is how to change the location where Windows looks for it's files:

  1. Start the Registry Editor
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \CurrentVersion \ Setup
  3. In the right-hand pane find the SourcePath key
  4. Double-click this key and change the location for your Windows 98 files
  5. Close the registry editor

You can also use my Tweaking Toolbox for Windows, one of it's functions is to change the location of the Windows installation files.
