Get drive label that was set by autorun.inf file

Recommended Posts

dpryan

I'm running Windows 7.

I have an autorun.inf file on a removable drive that looks like this:

[autorun]
label=My Drive Label

When I plug in that USB drive and open Windows Explorer, I see that drive properly labeled.

It says "My Drive Label (G:)" next to the drive icon.

However, I can't figure out how to read that label (without reading the ini file, of course).

If I use DriveGetLabel("G:"), it returns the string that is stored when you right-click the drive and select properties and type in a label. I can't figure out how to make it return the label that is displayed in Windows Explorer.

Any ideas?

      Hi guys,
      I'm learning about GUI's, I'm trying the below code, the idea being if I press the letter "e" while I have the GUI open I want the label color to change to green (I'm using a UDF for label colors). But every time I press "e" on my keyboard I just get a "ding" sound from my speakers and nothing changes with the label.
      I've looked at using something like "While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE" as I've seen it in other code instead of "While 1", but I don't think it's relevant.
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>; for GUI... #include <GUIRichLabel.au3>; UDF for rich text label fonts #include <Misc.au3>; for _IsPressed $myLetter = "e" $hGUI = GUICreate("test", 700, 60) $lbl2 = _GUICtrlRichLabel_Create($hGUI, '<font color="purple">' & $myLetter & '</font>', 10, 10); , 260, 25 GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) Local $hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll") While 1 if _IsPressed(Hex($myLetter), $hDLL) Then While _IsPressed(Hex($myLetter), $hDLL) Sleep(250) WEnd _GUICtrlRichLabel_SetData($lbl2, '<font color="green">' & $myLetter & '</font>') Sleep(2000) DllClose($hDLL) Exit EndIf Sleep(50) WEnd DllClose($hDLL) I am using an array of letters that I'm wanting to do this for, but as I can't get it to work I've stripped it down to the simplest code I can think of to try and get this working first. Appreciate any help.
      Thanks!

      I know that this theme was discussed several times but I read all These threats with no helping result.
      I have two pieces of TEMPer1F USB Thermometer.
      It is a Standard Windows HID device with no add. Driver needed.
      With the device I got an App reading from it and showing Graphs and much more and which can handle several devices.
      With the Software came also a RDingUSB.dll file handling the communication with the device.
      I can call the dll without any error. But the Problem is how to Access the device using the DLL and Access more than one of same VID/PID
      by Serial or anything else useful.
      I have also sources in c# doing the Job, but no experience in C# to successfuly port it to AutoIT.
       
      So my question: Can anyone help me to realize the simple pull of the temperature value from the devices based on C# source?
      The rest to write it to MySQL DB and repeat it etc. is no Problem for me.
      ***************************************
      The C# part with the DLL functions class:
      ***************************************
      using System;
      using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
      namespace TEMPer
      {
        internal class RDing
        {
          [DllImport("RDingUSB.dll")]
          public static extern IntPtr OpenUSBDevice(int VID, int PID);
          [DllImport("RDingUSB.dll")]
          public static extern IntPtr CloseUSBDevice(IntPtr hDevice);
          [DllImport("RDingUSB.dll")]
          public static extern bool WriteUSB(IntPtr hDevice, byte[] pBuffer, uint dwBytesToWrite, ref ulong lpNumberOfBytesWritten);
          [DllImport("RDingUSB.dll")]
          public static extern bool ReadUSB(IntPtr hDevice, byte[] pBuffer, uint dwBytesToRead, ref ulong lpNumberOfBytesRead);
          [DllImport("RDingUSB.dll")]
          public static extern ushort GetInputLength(IntPtr hDevice);
          [DllImport("RDingUSB.dll")]
          public static extern ushort GetOutputLength(IntPtr hDevice);
          [DllImport("RDingUSB.dll")]
          public static extern uint GetErrorMsg(ref string[] lpErrorMsg, uint dwErrorMsgSize);
        }
      }
      *********************************
      The C# code snippet working with the functions of the class above is in the attachment
      this is the interesting part where the data is sent and pulled which I
      do not understand to transcode to AutoIT
      Important my devices are the type2 (TEMPer1F) :
      *********************************
      So in the end I Need: Call DLL, read all devices in array
      Loop the Array until ubound(Array) and for each device in Array read the temperature value and prepare the data to
      decimal 6,1 (SQL Format) and °C
      So how to pull the value from the devices?
      Maybe somwbody finds the important part in the C#  (the code above is for different models, mine is TEMPer1F
      Or maybe someone has solved this and has maybe a uDF for this

      Hi,
      i searched the forum to communicate with a logitech G600 without using Shortcuts or Default Mouse Keys.
      the code below lets u use your sidekeys whenever you press down the ring key.
      before using the code you will have to unassign the keys in the logitech mouse driver software.
      The source of my code is a wacom usb script, wich was heavily modified to work.
      you might find some parts wierd, thats because this is my first attempt to communicate via raw hid.

      Hello Forum,
      I'm trying to vertically center text in label controls, but no way. The search on the forum returns no result, or I don't search the right way
      When I insert a button and a label of same size close to each other, the text is centered on the button, but top aligned on the label, or edit. Which doesn't look really aesthetic
      Any idea is welcome
      Thanks in advance,
      Thoms

      I've made a program that relies on IniReadSectionNames. It reads (~3K) Autorun.inf files in the working folder and creates a GUI based on their contents.
      I made sure to revert to a default GUI upon @error.
      But someone (with Windows XP SP3 32-bit) reported to me he always gets the default menu.
      I sent him a FileRead command instead and it works! So seemingly there's no access problem to AutoRun.inf.
      In the following demo code, I always hit success, but he always ends up with semi-success:
      Local $hIniLocation = "Autorun.inf" Local $aSections = IniReadSectionNames($hIniLocation) If @error Then $aSections = FileRead($hIniLocation) if @error then msgbox(48, "Double error", "Alternative access failed too due to:" & @crlf & @error & @crlf & @extended) else msgbox(0, "Semi-success", "IniReadSectionNames failed, but alternativaly this file contains:" & @crlf & @crlf & $aSections) endif else msgbox(0, "Success", "IniReadSectionNames worked!") endif Why is that? Is there something further to check with him?
