    Default Symbol Manager Question

    I had to do a partition on my hard drive and my C: drive no longer exists. LDD is still looking for my symbol manager folder on my C: and I can't find where to change the search path. As of right now I have "made" a C: drive as a quick fix but I would like to get it to search correctly.

    If you can't change it there, then you might be able to use the back door...

    Before reading on... Take all of the normal precautions such as backing up any file you edit before editing it, etc.


    On the command line, paste this in:
    (startapp "notepad" (findfile "sdsk.dfm"))
    This should open a file in notepad.

    Now shutdown Land Desktop.

    Now back to the file that is open in Notepad...
    Search for a line that starts with SYMDATA=
    Check out the path there, edit as needed.
    Save the file, open LDT.
    No promises or guarantees using this method.. Other than to say I have done it and it worked here...
