First, I'd like to say great work on XPLode, but currently, I use a CD based install, since some of my PCs have two CD rom drives, I use the following code to determine which one the XP CD is in
ECHO Determining CDROM Letter
IF EXIST D:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=D:
IF EXIST E:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=E:
IF EXIST F:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=F:
IF EXIST G:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=G:
IF EXIST H:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=H:
IF EXIST I:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=I:
IF EXIST J:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=J:
IF EXIST K:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=K:
IF EXIST L:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=L:
IF EXIST M:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=M:
IF EXIST N:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=N:
IF EXIST O:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=O:
IF EXIST P:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=P:
IF EXIST Q:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=Q:
IF EXIST R:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=R:
IF EXIST S:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=S:
IF EXIST T:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=T:
IF EXIST U:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=U:
IF EXIST V:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=V:
IF EXIST W:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=W:
IF EXIST X:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=X:
IF EXIST Y:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=Y:
IF EXIST Z:\WIN51IP.SP1 set CD=Z:
I then add the install files to the registry, using variables for the CD letter. Is there any way I could have xplode run this code, then run the files directly from the CD? Could I just use 'program='big string here''?
