I have a software which reads some files from the floppy drive. By default that software only looks for A: drive. On one of my PC I have floppy drive installed, the software works fine there. But one doesn't have hardware floppy drive so I tried virtual Floppy drive & loaded the image but that software doesn't recognize that & gives message that there is no floppy drive.I made an experiment & tried virtual floppy drive on the PC where I already had hardware floppy drive. I disabled that & the software treated my Virtual Drive as A: drive.
Pls let me know how to install drivers of a floppy drive if there is no hardware floppy so that the software continues with my Virtual Floppy Drive. Pls mention if there are some registry related settings.

I believe you can softlink the A drive to a virtual directory. I remember installing some abandonware some time back and having the same issue. I'll see if I can find the link to the fix for you
