Can I save

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders]
"favorites"="D:\New_Favorites"

as move.reg

and then just double click on move.reg to change the location of my favories folder.

I am trying to slipstream and unattend an XP SP2 installation???

Thanks

By now you probably know the answer... what happened?

I am a bit bewildered but this would appear to be the answer :-

@ECHO OFF
SET HOME=D:\Home
MD "%HOME%\%USERNAME%\Mail\Outlook Express\"

@REM Retrieve Identities for current user, then find out where OE's Strore Root, and set to HOME
FOR /F "skip=4 tokens=5" %%I IN ('REG QUERY "HKCU\Identities" /v "Default User ID"') DO (
REG ADD "HKCU\Identities\%%I\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0" /f /v "Store Root" /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d "%HOME%\%%USERNAME%%\Mail\Outlook Express\"
REG ADD "HKCU\Identities\%%I\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0" /f /v "NoSplash" /t REG_DWORD /d "1"
)

@REM kill itself
DEL /F /Q %0
