It would have ramifications for me as I validate the installation path in
the software from a registry entry written by the installer.

?I have software used on networks that commonly uses its shared folder
server as a mapped drive, eg M:\MyFolder with M: mapped to
If a program runs from there, started as M:\MyFolder\MyProgram.exe , there
is a difference between XP and Windows 7:
XP Application.exename returns M:\MyFolder\MyProgram.exe
Windows 7 Application.exename returns
ie Windows 7 expands the mapped drive to its real UNC name rather than
returning the mapped drive name, even though the program was run from a
shortcut using the mapped drive name.
Anyone know if this is a setting or preference that can be altered? Or do
I have to live with either being returned depending on Windows version?
Others may wish to check if this has ramifications for them!
