I have a software which reads some files from the floppy drive. By
default that software only looks for A: drive. On one of my PC I have
floppy drive installed, the software works fine there. But one doesn’t
have hardware floppy drive so I tried virtual Floppy drive & loaded the
image but that software doesn’t recognize that & gives message that
there is no floppy drive.I made an experiment & tried virtual floppy
drive on the PC where I already had hardware floppy drive. I disabled
that & the software treated my Virtual Drive as A: drive.
Pls let me know how to install drivers of a floppy drive if there is no
hardware floppy so that the software continues with my Virtual Floppy
Drive. Pls mention if there are some registry related settings.

I believe you can softlink the A drive to a virtual directory. I
remember installing some abandonware some time back and having the same
issue. I’ll see if I can find the link to the fix for you :)
C:\Program Files\Common Files\SYSTEM\MSMAPI\1033>help subst

a virtual drive.

Thanks for your suggestions. I have found what was wrong with my PC. SO
