cmd.exe (WIHU started over UNC-Path)

Recommended Posts

opensurf    0

when i start WIHU with an UNC-Path and the started program within WIHU is cmd.exe,

...

; Sub command 1

description.1=Windows Media Player 9 (+ Hotfix Q819639, Q828026, Q837272)

command.1=cmd.exe /c %WIHU%\Windows\wmp\setup.cmd

file.1.0=%SystemRoot%\System32\wmp.dll?9.0.0.3128

...

i get the following errormessage in the DOS-Environment:

CMD.EXE wurde mit "\\hostname\share\WIHU" als aktuellem Verzeichnis gestartet.

UNC-Pfade werden nicht unterstützt.

Stattdessen wird das Windows-Verzeichnis als aktuelles Verzeichnis gesetzt.

It's possible to start cmd.exe with %TEMP% if WIHU is started with UNC-Path?

Thx

i have less experience in programing, but isn't it possible to check the Cmd if it start's with cmd.exe and if yes, then replace CurDir with %TEMP%?

wihu.c:

...

if (LogonWithNewName == 0) {

/* Install as current user (i.e. Administrator) */

Result = CreateProcess(NULL, Cmd, NULL, NULL, FALSE, 0, 0, CurDir, &sti, π);

} else {

Result = CreateProcessWithLogonW(UserName, NULL, UserPassword, LOGON_WITH_PROFILE, NULL, Cmd, 0, NULL, CurDir, &sti, π);

}

...

%temp% is only an example. Best solution would be a startdirectory for every command or a general startdir for all commands.

Only for cmd.exe would a startdir be nice, because of ugly startmessage.

inside the started cmd.exe (first three lines) i get the following messages:

CMD.EXE wurde mit "\\hostname\share\WIHU" als aktuellem Verzeichnis gestartet.

UNC-Pfade werden nicht unterstützt.

Stattdessen wird das Windows-Verzeichnis als aktuelles Verzeichnis gesetzt.

I submitted a patch for this...

If (or when) it gets added to the main branch it will be possible to specify in the ini file what path to start the application in using "startin.<number>=<path>"

Hopefully it should fix your problem.

eg:

[Development]
command.0=cmd.exe
description.0=Command Prompt - wihu path (default, reverse compatable)
selected.0=1

command.1=cmd.exe
startin.1=.
description.1=Command Prompt - Relitive to install.ini file
selected.1=1

command.2=cmd.exe
startin.2=C:\
description.2=Command Prompt - Fixed Path
selected.2=1

command.3=cmd.exe
startin.3=%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%
description.3=Command Prompt - Enviroment (C:\Documents and Settings\<Username>)
selected.3=1

Thx at the_spide for his suggestion and patch. I added "WorkDir.x" key which could be used here to specify working directory.

Please note, relative directories are relative to WIHU application directory!

You may use %INIDIR% or %CURDIR% varaible to override this.
