Hi.

i wrote this code to get all CDROM and check if my file exist in each drive then give me a message. but when i add custom file to my CDROM and run this code it can't find it.

#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

local $ArrayDrive = DriveGetDrive($DT_CDROM)

for $i = 1 to $ArrayDrive[0]
   if (FileExists($ArrayDrive[$i] & '\Folder\Setup.exe') == 1) Then
      MsgBox(0, "", "there is current file")
   Else
      MsgBox(0, "", "There is no any File")
      Exit
   EndIf
Next

anyone know how can fix it?

Thanks.

behdadsoft,

The way you have it coded you will exit the script after the first failure to find the file - you need to exit the loop only once you have found it.

#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

local $ArrayDrive = DriveGetDrive($DT_CDROM)

for $i = 1 to $ArrayDrive[0]
   if (FileExists($ArrayDrive[$i] & '\Folder\Setup.exe') == 1) Then
      MsgBox(0, "", "there is current file")

I fixed it. I added a counter to increase after each failure to find file and then can show custom failure message. :)
