I have a Windows 2003 server where I only have an M: drive.

There is this small label writer software that errors out when I install because it seems that it is looking for files on a D: drive when it is actually unpacking them on the M: drive.

At a windows command line, isn't it possible to alias drive letters to get a correct install? I believe I have done this before, but for the life of me, I can't remember what the command was.

The diskpart tool should give you what you need.

A the command line type

list volume
select volume x
assign letter x

That should do it! Good Luck!
