Using Network Paths In Install Scripts


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to make an automatic install of several programs,drivers, etc. from the network, and I wanted to know if it was possible to run a program using its network path (ex. \\servername\temp\install.exe). I read on here you can map a network drive but I was hoping there was a way to go directly to file on the network. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks

Well I'm sure the path name is correct and it works from the run command line. When I try to execute this one line script I get an "Error: Unknown Command."

I tried all kinds of variables and a different error I got was when I tried:

Run("%\\Servername\temp\install.exe")

The error was "Error: Unable to expand the variables in this line. (Badly formatted)."

Maybe I'm just missing something simple but I just can't get this to work.

You have a % in the Run("%\\Servername\temp\install.exe")

try : Run("\\Servername\temp\install.exe")
