There are cases where an application needs access to a drive like H: to complete the installation of an application. Since, for example, you might be working on a VMware machine using a local user account.
Here's a trick to help you overcome this obstacle.
Instead of mapping your drive to a production drive, you can fake a drive on the machine using the Subst.exe command. You can fake an existing folder on the machine as a drive.
For creating an H: drive
- Create a folder under "C:" eg. C:\test
- Then use this command at command prompt:
subst H: C:\test
Open My computer and you will see an H: drive there.
