Installer does not work if file is in a virtual drive (Windows)

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Installer Windows Version: tested
Keywords: Installer, Virtual Drive, Path, Cc:


  • In my PC, I have assigned a virtual drive letter (D:) to the directory C:\D_Drive.
  • When I download the JOSM Installer, I usually save it to D:\Download\JOSM directory, and that works fine;
  • If i run the installer (either from the browser's download window or Windows File Explorer), the program stops working with message "Path not found"
(translation from Italian:


                  Specified path does not exist.
                  Please check the path and retry"
  • If the installer is run from the real path ("c:\D_Drive\Download\JOSM"), instead, the program works properly.

Same behaviour observed in Windows 7-Pro (64-bit) and Windows 10 Pro (64-bit); JOSM version used: 15937 (actually, it's the same with all previous versions I have saved, back to the ones built in 2014)

Thanks for your attention,
