CopyDir from cd on multiple computers

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm trying to make an automatic CD which makes it able to copy the intire CD directory to the hard disk (c:\)

My problem is that I have to use this CD on more then one computer.

Not every computer has the same Drive Letter as CD Drive.

So what i need to do is make a "dynamic" drive letter in some way.

this is what i'm trying:

DirCreate("C:\Program Files\Muppet_Babies")
DirCopy("@ScriptDir","C:\Program Files\Muppet_Babies",1)

This should Copy The intire CD's Directory to its destination.

But it doesnt.

The script in fact does nothing.....

When i replace "@ScriptDir" with the actual driveletter, it DOES work.

Is there an alternertive to @ScriptDir or any other way to solve this?

Yours,

Teun

Use

$aDrives = DriveGetDrive("CDROM")
to get an array with all CDROM drives.

If there is more than one CDROM or/and to make sure that the correct CD is in the drive I would check for the existance of a file of your project on the CD.
