Move some Dirs in Startmenu to other locations

4 posts in this topic

Hi there,

i try to cleanup the startmenu on some workstations.

So i wrote a little script, but it doesnt work:

$oracle_folder = "C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\All Users\Startmenü\Programme\oratemp"
    IF NOT FileExists($oracle_folder) THEN DirCreate($oracle_folder)
    $ora = "C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\All Users\Startmenü\Programme\Oracle*"
    DirMove($ora, $oracle_folder&"\*", 1)

Okay, you see.. it should copy all Dirs in the Startmenu which begins with "Oracle" move to a new dir "oratemp". The script creates the new folder, but doesnt copy the Oracle-Folders.

I created 3-4 emtpy dirs for testing ("Oracle asdf", "Oracle 9999", "oracle d").

I know, that the wildcard is working - i've a second script, that moves some Microsoft-Office Shortcuts in the Startmenu to another folder... and thats working :/ Ive got only problems with the folder-handling :/

Some Ideas?

I don't think DirCopy() or DirMove() accept wild cards. Read the help file on _FileListToArray(), using the flag to list directories only, then walk through the array and move them one at a time.

:shocked:

Try this:

#include <file.au3>
$oracle_folder = "C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\All Users\Startmenü\Programme\oratemp"
IF NOT FileExists($oracle_folder) THEN DirCreate($oracle_folder)
$ora = "C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\All Users\Startmenü\Programme"
$FoldersToMove = "Oracle*"
$FolderArray = _FileListToArray( $ora, $FoldersToMove, 2)
For $i = 1 To $FolderArray[0]
    DirMove($ora & "\" & $FolderArray[$i], $oracle_folder & "\" & $FolderArray[$i], 1)
Next
