DriveMapAdd

3 posts in this topic

I'm sort of afraid of trying this because I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing and I don't want to screw up my comp. With DriveMapAdd is it possible to have it host a CD? or a game disc?

If not is there any way to do this with autoit?

You're not likely to hurt your computer with the function DriveMapAdd(). All it does is map a local drive letter to a network share on another computer. It's the same as doing the following from a CMD console:

NET USE Q: \\OtherComputer\GameCD

If you have a CD in your local CDROM drive and want to share it so others can access it, this is not the right command. You want to create a share. From a script, the easiest way would be by running the DOS command:

Run("NET SHARE GameCD=D:\")

:)

I think you're looking for a program like Alcohol 120%, where you copy the CD to an .ISO file, and then create a virtual drive pointing to that .ISO.
