On xp+sp3 when using scripts to open a file on the active drive I use e.g. \Scripts\tester.ahk

which used to get F:\Scripts\tester.ahk in my case, but now I get this error message instead

---------------------------
Information
---------------------------
File "C:\Scripts\tester.ahk" not found
---------------------------
OK

I've installed several new apps recently, so am not sure if one of them changed xp, or if this is something I've done inadvertently. How do I reset it?

I'll do a little research into this, though admittedly I haven't toyed with scripts a lot. In the mean time, couldn't you just add F:\ to the start of the file path?

I'm very sorry, this was a false alarm. The message was not from xp but from my scripting app. I recently changed all my scripts from "^!Open F:\ ..." to "^!Open \ ..." to make them portable, when in fact I should have used "^!Shell \ ..." instead.
