RE: [K12OSN] regfile for redirect of My Documents



No doubt. I bet that is exactly what it is. I noticed that on the export Chuck
had made, but for some reason it never clicked in my head.

Jason,

In case you and Chuck are still trying to get this to
work, here's what's worked for me.

In startup.bat I have the following:
c:
cd c:\chain
regedit /s c:\chain\startup.reg

Here's my startup.reg:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell
Folders]
"Desktop"="P:\\Desktop"
"Personal"="P:\\My Documents"
"My Pictures"="P:\\My Documents\\My Pictures"
"My Music"="P:\\My Documents\\My Music"
"My Video"="P:\\My Documents\\My Videos"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User
Shell Folders]
"Desktop"="P:\\Desktop"
"Personal"="P:\\My Documents"
"My Pictures"="P:\\My Documents\\My Pictures"
"My Music"="P:\\My Documents\\My Music"
"My Video"="P:\\My Documents\\My Videos"

I based my .reg file on what I exported using
regedit.exe in Windows XP.  All the above directories
already exist on the P: drive.

Something I noticed was that the export function used
"\\" instead of "\".  Perhaps that makes a difference
in getting the import to work when running from the
batch file?  Though I've only tried this in Windows
XP... perhaps older versions use "\".

David
