How can I change my default ICE reader library directory to a cdrom drive letter?

In this way I can have several CD's containing different collections of ibk books.

Thanks.

This is not good idea. ICE Reader store all book related information inside .ibk files. Opening what books directly from CD mean serious problems with updating information. I recommend you to copy files to HDD.

But anyway, you can use any directory as library directory. Refer to help file: FAQ - Multi user configurations. But remeber, ICE Reader must have rights for writing in this is directory.

I opened a DOS window,
then CD to C:\Program Files\ICE Book Reader Professional Retail

Doing a DIR I see the program ICEReaderRetail.exe but not the program
ICEReader.exe as indicated in the FAQ.

then I type:
ICEReaderRetail /BOOKS_PATH=F:\ICE_Books

It loads ICE reader and I see my books in F:\ICE_Books but
when I close ICE reader and restart ICE reader using the Windows GUI rather than DOS command prompt it cannot find my books in the F:\ICE_Books directory.

How do I tell Windows to permanently change the path to the books?

Where can I found out about other DOS command line parameter options
for ICE reader?

Thanks

Just make new shortcut, and specify in path instead of
"C:\Program Files\ICE Book Reader Professional Retail\ICEReaderRetail.exe"

this is path

"C:\Program Files\ICE Book Reader Professional Retail\ICEReaderRetail.exe" /BOOKS_PATH=F:\ICE_Books

This is will make permanent change.

There is not other options.
