    Must admit I'm not sure how to deploy it as I don't personally use it, mainly because I have lots of machines with memory card readers in where all sorts of different drive letters are in use, so I just let them pick the first available one when they plug them in at my school.

    As long as users ( students, teachers etc ) dont have access rights to modify those files the ini and program / service then it should be fine
