Yes!

what "TOKENS=1" stands for??

TBH, it's not needed, I just failed to remove it from the code I copy/pasted it off!

@ECHO OFF & SETLOCAL ENABLEEXTENSIONS DISABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION
FOR /F %%# IN ('MOUNTVOL^|FINDSTR [C-Z]:\\') DO (
IF EXIST %%#INSTALLER SET "INSTALL=%%#Installer")
IF NOT DEFINED INSTALL GOTO :EOF
:: REST OF CODE BELOW HERE
::EXAMPLE COMMAND USING %INSTALL% VARIABLE
ECHO=[%INSTALL%]

For the record, this is Windows 7 "Batch language" or "Command interpreter" or "Command line" or "Command console", NOT DOS.

Here is how you would do it using VBS scripting.


Dim Fso :Set Fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim Drv, Loc
'-> Search All Drives For Installer Folder
For Each Drv In Fso.Drives
If Fso.FolderExists(Drv & "\Installer") Then Loc = Drv & "\Installer"
Next
'-> Check The Resuts Of Searching The Drives
If Len(Loc) > 2 Then
MsgBox Loc,4128,"Confirm Folder"
Else
MsgBox "Can Not Find The Installer Folder",4128,"Missing Folder"
End If
