#1860 closed Bug (Fixed)

DriveStatus Returns Ready with blank value

Reported by: aef03 <autoit.forums@…> Owned by: Jon
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


I am trying to do code similar to the below.

When the registry key does not exist, I get the status "READY" back.

If my combination of statements means this is not a bug, I would like to request that this report be changed to a feature request for the below to work properly.

If DriveStatus(Regread("HKLM\Software\ABC","DriveLetter")) = "READY" Then $ABCDriveAvailable = True

Thanks much.

What you have should work fine providing the information being returned from your RegRead() is correct. It should return in the format G:\ or just G: If it returns anything else including "G:" then you will have to fix the registry return to make it work.

$sDrive = StringRegExpReplace(Regread("HKLM\Software\ABC","DriveLetter"), "(?i)^.*([a-z]).*", "$1:")
If DriveStatus($sDrive) = "ready" Then $ABCDriveAvailable = True

You will have to provide an actual return value before this can really be checked.

Forget my last comment.
That looks like a bug in the DriveStatus function to me and it can be duplicated with

MsgBox(4096, "Drive Status", DriveStatus(""))

A work around is to verify that the drive exists

$sDrive = Regread("HKLM\Software\ABC","DriveLetter")
If FileExists($sDrive) Then
   MsgBox(4096, "Drive Status", DriveStatus($sDrive))
