verify a directory's existence


Recommended Posts

I am using a inputbox to allow the user to enter an installation directory. It is stored as $variable2. Is there anyway to check all local drives to see if this directory exists?

For example $variable2=d:\wis5

How would i design the program to check for this directory?

All help is appreciated.

do a drivegetdrive("fixed") then a for ... net loop of file exists... if you know it'll be in the root... otherwise, I guess you'd want to find or write a file search udf and use that in the for .. next

You could alternatively use FileSelectFolder, but it is completely graphical and does not allow the user to type a path.

Edit: Also, the docs say that FileExists($variable2) should work

I've used the filesavediag to have the user create a folder. You can set your root dir that way too
