Keep Smiling 4 Jesus :):
Download junction.exe from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896768 and save it in C:\Users

The junction.zip download has two executables:

  • junction.exe
  • junction64.exe

Microsoft Developer Network has more information about NTFS Junction or Directory Symbolic Link => https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/aaron_margosis/2012/12/09/using-ntfs-junctions-to-fix-application-compatibility-issues-on-64-bit-editions-of-windows/

Windows 7 and newer include mklink command.

Keep Smiling Smile

I completed the installation with the pointer to my Resources folder on my microSD card. The resources were discovered. Now my tablet is indexing and that likely will take a while.

I just wanted to report back that I have successfully completed this installation with the symbolic link to the Resources folder on my microSD card. I have been running this installation for a week now and there have been no issues. Thanks for your help, KS4J!

Seriously, if Faithlife will not allow us to select which resources to run on an installation with a small internal drive, they should formally support this type of an installation that allows those of us with small Windows tablets to use the desktop app on them.

There is too much risk e.g. "I just lost my resources", "Junction didn't work". Provided you understand the variables of a non-standard installation format and an SD card it should continue to work.

This would have saved me over $1000 dollars when I had to upgrade my Surface Pro I to a SP4--only because of SSD space.

Bill & KS4J

Many many thanks to both of you. I had a similar problem and this has solved it. Not ideal but what is ideal in this world anyway!

Yep I am smiling as well. Smile
