Changing default shortcut target? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Hey BenRK, I am having the same problem you are for a very similar reason. I changed my the default program files paths to a separate partition on my SSD. The only difference is that Windows is automatically creating shortcuts to my P:\Program Files (x86) folder for programs that are installed in the P:\Program Files folder. Did you ever find a fix for this problem?

I am having the exact same issue as you guys with the same setup. Anyone? Please?

I am also having this issue.
I changed the default install path for programs to a separate drive with the following steps:
%systemroot%\syswow64\regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion
ProgramFilesDir, ProgramFilesDir (x86)

the "start in" locations of my shortcuts are all correct. but the "Target" is always the wrong drive (C:)

Trying the above steps in the normal regedit (non64) will result in the "target" being listed correctly, but breaks everything that has been previously installed.
