i need to make windows "think" that the path for system32 folder is different

e.g. "c:\windows\system69", instead of "c:\windows\system32"

without having to reboot....

i've tried to modify the environment variables, a few registry values and the explorer.exe process memory, but none had any effect

is it impossible?

thx

Howdy and welcome to GTG:

Why would you be wanting to play with a critical Windows file/folder?

I need to use a different version of ntdll.dll and kernel32.dll....

i've renamed all the correct dll files and also renamed them in the program and in every dll through hex editing and put them in the system32 folder

but, for some reason, the program still calls the native (unedited) version of those two libraries in a few situations, which means there must be a path somewhere which tells the location of those files, and that's the location i want to change

i guess you'll just say "don't mind about it" or something, but an helpful reply would actually be interesting :whistling:
