hiya all

ive got something im working on as secret and im jsut wondering is ti possible to try and run a certain program from a button but if the file doesnt exist on their computer it will try in another drive on their computer i have accidentally split my drive in 2 and the main one is called F: not C: but there still is a C:.

CODE
Case $Button3

Run("F:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe")

Run("C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe")

thats is what im having trouble with any ideas?

cheers C.W

if FileExists("F:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe") then 
    Run("F:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe")
Else
    Run("C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe")
endif

Else you could put the drive letters into an array, and use a for statement.

example

dim $array[2] 
$array[0] = "C:"
$array[1] = "F:"
$file = "\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe"

for $icc = 0 to ubound($array)-1
if fileexists($array[$icc]&$file) then run($array[$icc]&$file)
next
