How Do You Search The Entire Hard Drive

Recommended Posts


How do you search the entire hard drive for a file and then execute it. The

example, below, is shown for executing a file in the same folder. But I don't know

where the user may save the download. Thanks.

; Shows the filenames of all files in the current directory, note that "." and ".." are returned.

$search = FileFindFirstFile("*.*")

; Check if the search was successful

If $search = -1 Then

MsgBox(0, "Error", "No files/directories matched the search pattern")



While 1

$file = FileFindNextFile($search)

If @error Then ExitLoop

MsgBox(4096, "File:", $file)


; Close the search handle
