%SRCDRIVE% - Works for me.

I know this is an old topic, and more than likely you may have found the answer, But I had the same question.

Turns out the answer is right at the beginning of the online manual.

The above works, but for some reason it only worked in my VMware Test. When I tried to run the Installs from My cd on a real system it failed.

Here is what I did to make it work.

WIHUstart.cmd

cmdow @ /HID
@echo off


IF EXIST D:\CD.txt set CDROM=D:
IF EXIST E:\CD.txt set CDROM=E:
IF EXIST F:\CD.txt set CDROM=F:
IF EXIST G:\CD.txt set CDROM=G:
IF EXIST H:\CD.txt set CDROM=H:
IF EXIST I:\CD.txt set CDROM=I:
IF EXIST J:\CD.txt set CDROM=J:

ECHO.
start /wait %CDROM%\WIHU\wihu.exe /skiprestart /skipsettings
ECHO.
EXIT


Then I placed my Software Folders within the WIHU Folder. "WIHU\Software\Productivity\VMwareSilentInstall\VMware.exe" <--Example
The INI commands are then written like this..

;sub command 2
description.2 = VMware WorkStation
command.2 = %WIHU%\Software\Productivity\VMwareSilentInstall\VMware.exe
selected.2 = 0


Works perfectly... Everything installs from the DVD.
