I have a dual boot system with windows 7 and windows 8.
Both have visual studio professional 2012 with IVF composer XE 2013sp1. Both systems know to the same physical drive as drive E:. On both I execute a dos command "subst P: E:\map1\map2". On Both systems in the explorer and in a dosbox i get the same result when I inspect the directory p:\ or E:\map1\map2\. My Fortran project/solution/sources and bin etc. are on the same drive E:\. The same exe is build (as far as i can see) weather build under windows 8 or under windows 7. Both executables (build under win8 amd under win7) can run under win 7 and under win 8.
They both show the following:
In both systems my fortran programs can see a file (test.txt) in map E:\map1\map2\ for instance in an INQUIRE statement.
Under windows 7 the same Fortran program will report that file also as existing in map P:\
Under window 8 the same Fortran program will report that file also as NOT existing in map P:\
How can I use files on a substituted drive under windows 8? Please advise me.
