1. Go to NVDA Menu>Tools>Create Portable Copy...
2. Type a wrong path then click Continu.

Then we have the error sound and that in the log:
ERROR - gui.installerGui.doCreatePortable (18:49:48):

Fixed in f5d2047. The directory is no longer set to the random location of 'e:', instead its left blank. When pressing continue, a message box is shown if the directory is still blank, or the drive does not exist.
State: closed

@nvaccessAuto nvaccessAuto added this to the 2012.2 milestone
