Hi everybody,

I use installshield 11.5 for windows and i would like to know if there is possible to know when the setup.exe starts if the computer has a drive c or d and so on !

is it possible with a custom action or others things!?

I've look in the documentation but i don't see anythings !
Have you got any idéa where i look or what can i do ?

Thanks
Christophe

It depends on what you are trying to do.

Are you trying to install the msi on a specific drive? i.e. C: or D: ?
If so you can set the ROOTDRIVE property to whatever drive you want to install the app on.

Hi,

we d like to know just if there is a drive c:\ on the computer because we include msde in our package and msde create a log file at installation on the root c:\ !MSDE2K.LOG

of course if there isn't c:\ the installation failed !

in fact, we d like to check if there is a drive c:\ if no drive c:\ we thinh perhpas create a mapped drive just for the installation !

we have look if we suppress the creation of the log file of msde but NO !

Thanks

Custom VBScript action:

Dim sExists
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set colDrives = fso.Drives

sExists = 0
For Each oDrive in colDrives
If UCase(oDrive.DriveLetter)= "C" Then sExists = 1
Next

Select Case sExists
Case 0 'C:\ DOES NOT exist... do something
Case 1 'C:\ EXISTS... do something
End Select
