I am distributing software to many different places and I need a script to identify which cd drive the cd is in. HELP

First question I have to ask is why? Meaning why do you need to know which drive the CD is in? Because the answer to this is probably going to answer a lot of other questions we might come up with.

Second question is, what have you tried and have you searched the forum? This has been asked and answered many times, and if you haven't done at least a search, then we need to know what you've tried.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Func LocateDrive($sPath)
     Local $aDrive = DriveGetDrive("CDROM")
     For $iLetter = 1 To $aDrive[0] Step 1
             if FileExists($aDrive[$iLetter] & "\" & $sPath) then return $aDrive[$iLetter]
     Next
     Return -1
EndFunc

$DriveLetter = LocateDrive("MySetup\Setup.exe")

ConsoleWrite($DriveLetter & @CRLF)

; i. e. $DriveLetter = "E:"
