winrar sfx code to copy files to \%userprofile%\Application

13 posts in this topic

Hi how you input the code in winrar sfx to extract & copy certain files to C:\Documents and Settings\%userprofile%\Application Data ? in Windows XP / Vista / Seven

The sfx application requires a profile.xml file to be in the C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data folder

Or do i need to create a .cmd file? If yes how?

Please advise. Thanks ahead =)

Select the files to add in a sfx archive, right click on selection->WinRAR->Add to archive...->check Create sfx archive->Advanced->SFX Options->in path to extract fill with

%APPDATA%

, click OK, click OK. Also you can adjust compression if necessary.

Thanks for the reply radix

I meant only the profile.xml file alone is extracted or copied to C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data folder

The rest of the files in SFX archive is extracted to the sfx default output folder - "program files" folder

I don't know what additional sfx scripts commands is required to input on the sfx comment section

Or create a run.cmd file to do the profile.xml file copying & add " /w run.cmd " without quotes after this sfx command script Setup=software.exe

Example;

Setup=software.exe /w run.cmd

TempMode

Silent=1

Overwrite=1

But I dont know what is command line is use to create the run.cmd file

Its is possible to copy a folder + sub folder + 2 files

Profile folder / Username folder / profile.xml + Username.bin

?

Not sure about this, but you MAY need to wrap %appdata% with quotes, e.g. "%appdata%".

when using xcopy quotes is not always needed but is always a good practice to include them just in case of spaces in source path etc.

Really?

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>>echo %appdata%-Result is:C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data

in Windows XP / Vista / Seven

That would apply to 2K and 2K3 (what I did it on) as well. It will be different for Vista/7 - the result will be

C:\Users\<username>\Appdata\Roaming

(performed on Win7 Home Premium).

IOW, "xcopy" will NOT run with blanks in the name, hence wrapping in quotes. ;) P.S., you will need a backslash and whatever filenames\folders (however you do it) immediately following the VariableName ("%appdata\<somethinghere>%") within the quotes. S.O.P. :yes:
