"no disk in drive d:"

Has anyone come across SDL apps that appear to check for something on
drive D: when they start up? I’ve seen 3 reports of this for Tux Paint
(so far w/ little further details or digging from the folks who reported it).

Google-searching, I found all sorts of complaints about this issue,
with apps ranging from Symantec AntiVirus to iTunes to Microsoft Money.
It sounds like Registry corruption, Windows looking different places for
some DLL, or something similar.

In Tux Paint’s case, I believe the pop-up window’s title might read
something like:

“SDL_app tuxpaint.exe -no disk”

Clicking OK or Cancel or whatever seems to just skip the error and
continue the app (in pretty much all cases, not just for Tux Paint).

Thanks in advance!–

Responding to an email from last June regarding “no disk in drive D:” errors
coming from SDL/Tux Paint…

Someone commented on this with a potential work-around on Tux Paint’s
bug tracker over at sourceforge:

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2494454&group_id=66938&atid=516295

“Workaround: disable D: drive in Device Manager, run TuxPaint
config, change something and save. TuxPaint runs fine. Then enable D:
drive, TuxPaint runs fine too.”
