Need a Script to Search User's Profiles to see if a File Exist

3 posts in this topic

I need a script to find a file located in the following location:

"C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\www.macromedia.com\bin\ciscounifiedaddin6x5\ciscounifiedaddin6x5.exe"

What I want is for a script to search a user's profile until it finds the "ciscounifiedaddin6x5.exe" file, when it does find it, I want it to call on an a program to run an installation. It would be easier for me to write a script that can do this if the file was located in the Program Files location or C:\ or C:\Windows or some other static location, but since user profile directories are of course different, how do I tell the script to scan a user profile's hidden Application Data location until it finds this file? I dont want the script to keep scanning even after it finds the "ciscounifiedaddin6x5.exe", I just want it to keep scanning UNTIL it finds even just one of these files, and if so, run a program. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Ok ... hold the phone. Is the update file always in the same location? ... the whole ... %appdata%\Macromedia\Flash Player\www.macromedia.com\bin\ciscounifiedaddin6x5\ciscounifiedaddin6x5.exe location?

if this is the case, then it is a simple:

$file = FileExists("path");checks if file exists 0 = no, 1 = yes

Do

Sleep(10)

$file = FileExists("path")

Until $file = 1;if, for some reason 1 is not working you could also say Until $file <> 0

rest of code
