I successfully used the program in Windows Vista to create a partition for my hard drive. I moved Word and the documents folder into the new partition, as well as my pics. When I start Word now, I get a prompt to insert the installation CD for Office. Is there a way to start Word from the new drive? I tried clicking on the .exe file for winword, but that is when I get the prompt to insert the installation CD.

Any way to change the default location/settings for Gallery (photos) in Vista?

Thanks much for any help!

If you want to transfer programs from drive/partition to partition/drive you need the original CD to install it to the new location. You can't just copy it and expect it to work.
