Delete Directory

2 posts in this topic

Hi

I used the following command to delete a directory. Is this the best/only way to do it?

(the example will delete the menu entry "PrintMe Internet Printing" created by Acrobat Reader on the Start Menu)

command.3=cmd.exe /Q /C rd /s /q "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\PrintMe Internet Printing"

Thank you for this cool program.

Well, as long as a method does what it is intended to it's a good method, isn't it! ;)

I'd by the way do it the same way like you. Maybe there're other methods, too, but the only way you can execute a command in WIHU is the command.x.y.z directive and a possible command to delete files is indeed cmd /c rd :) I guess another way would be using an INF-file, but don't ask me how this exactly works. But one thing is clear: INF files would be much more complicated! :)

Furthermore I don't think it would be a good idea to add an extra file deletion command to WIHU because this isn't the programm's original purpose.
