how do I launch file from a network share?

6 posts in this topic

ok. I made a front-end loader for my AIO/software DVD. By using javascript, I am able to launch a file through my HTA application which executes a file - which installs a program.

(for those of you who think it will allow u to hack into someones pc through the internet...think again. antivirus/firewalls will notify the user of the script. I just simply allow the script because its a local script made by me and I know its safe.)

I want to be able to launch this HTA program from a network share for my laptop because my laptop cannot read dvd-rw's. I was wondering if anyone knows how to do it. I have tried many different methods but have had no luck.

The posted code is a snippet from one of my many files.

BTW. the share path is //server/dvd.

var iBackSlash = sFullPath.lastIndexOf("\\");

As you see you can also use arguments for silent installs and so. Maybe you need to tweak a bit but I know I put you in de right direction. :D:thumbup

I am also having problems running my hta from a network share. When I run it locally, it works just fine. When I try to run it form a network drive only the background and the buttons at the bottom of the script show up.

The hta code is below.

 <HEAD>

I did copy to my winpe image and used the X: drive to call the hta file with no luck. the shortcut image buttons to my hta file will not show up. Only the background and the buttons at the bottom of the file show up.

Copy all files to the ramdisk and launch from the ramdisk.
