Description: Create Virtual Drives from long paths, it's easy! Browse to the path via the Drive and Folder Lists, choose a drive letter from the “Available Virtual Drive Letters” list and Click [Add Virtual Drive] to create the Virtual Drive, or Double Click the letter to create the Virtual Drive. It's just as easy to remove a Virtual Drive, Double Click the letter you want removed as a Virtual Drive or Click the letter and then Click [Remove Virtual Drive], oruse the Restore function to remove all of the virtual drives you created with one click on the Restore menu item.
Make CD-ROMs obsolete: Copy the contents of a CD-ROM to a folder on your Hard Drive, not to the root directory. Make that folder a Virtual Drive (see paragraph above), then install the Virtual CD from the Virtual Drive letter. Click Start, Run and in the space provided type L:\setup or L:\install (substitute your Virtual Drive letter for L and see the documentation that came with your CD-ROM for the proper installation command). Now every time you need to access the CD you can use the Virtual CD from your hard drive.
Be sure to make note of the Virtual Drive letter you used to create the Virtual CD, when you reboot your computer you will need to re-create the Virtual Drive. (With the Pro Version of Virtual Drive Creator you can make your Virtual Drives Permanent!)
