fileexists() function for UNC paths

6 posts in this topic

Hello all,

As title suggests, is there a function similar to fileexists() that can test whether a UNC path exists and is valid.

Short and sweet,

james

Printshares is something different but \\servername\sharename works fine.

Hello,

You can use the net view command line, and store the result in a temporary file and read it with AutoIt

you can use a script like this :

$computer = "\\IPAddress"

RunWait(@comspec & ' /c net view ' & $computer & ' > ' & '"' & @TempDir & '\netview.txt"')

You have just to use the AutoIt files fonctions to read the result

Another way is to use DriveMapAdd without giving a device name :

Instead of using FileExist, try :

If DriveMapAdd("", "\\computer\share") ...
