Hello, im new too VB and needs some babie steps with this small program i am trying to create, the purpose of it is to create an iso from a CD.
It is for use in small primary schools in england who cannot afford expensive software to do this simple task! if you could be patient with me im sure it will be fairly easy to finish!
First of all some info on this program.
It will be created in VB6.
A main window asking the teacher to insert a CD into the drive plus a box asking the user too type the name of the CD in. then click next.
the vb program will pass the name of the CD plus the location of the file server to a program called DDump (too copy the cd to iso file)
I need to call it using the command line:
ddump.exe 1:0:0 (LOCATION)(FILENAME) DONOTWAIT
an example of what the varibles could/would be:
ddump.exe 1:0:0 \\server\store\tizzys toybox DONOTWAIT
would be the complete command.
The location of \\server\store\ needs to be asked if location.ini does not exsist (also needs to create location.ini)
If location.ini is not there, a prompt will open asking for the location and then store this in the location.ini(after creating it!)
the program will use the location in location.ini each time it loads.
CD name needs to be asked each time the program is run and stored in the FILENAME varible (tempory varible)
The following image is of what i have created so far, the only thing missing is some simple code!
popup window that only shows if the location.ini file does not exist
It asks for the location and stores it in the location.ini file and never appears again aslong as the .ini file exists
The vb files thus far is here: http://www.apucsd.34sp.com/Project.rar
Please note i am very new to VB but am enjoying it! this program is needed fairly quickly otherwize i would have worked on it slowly myself!
well, i hope you can help me here, many thanks!
