cd command in script

Using the script:

@ECHO ON
%windir%\system32\msiexec /i "Notes 8.0.2.msi" /qb /l* c:\notes8.txt
IF %ERRORLEVEL%==0 GOTO :fix ELSE EXIT /B %ERRORLEVEL%
:fix
cd ".\fix"
"Setup.exe" /v/q
IF %ERRORLEVEL%==0 GOTO :end ELSE EXIT /B %ERRORLEVEL%
PAUSE
EXIT

It installs "Notes 8.0.2.msi" fine, but then it errors at the line cd "./fix".  I've tried cd "fix" and even just cd fix.  Same error, "The system could find the path specified."  The fix\setup.exe is a service patch for Lotus Notes.

Try the full path to \fix.  For example, c:\temp\Fix or \system32\fix

Let us know if that will work.

cd \
cd fix

Sorry, I should of added this to the original post.  I'm trying to run this as a startup script and host the setup files on a server.  \\app2\netlogon\notes\install.bat is where this script is.  I think somehow it's getting messed up with it being on a network drive.

cd \fix
cd ".\fix"
cd fix

All do not work.

Post a screen shot and include a DIR before the CD ".\fix" line.

Are you running this from a "UNC" path, i.e. \\server\share\xyza\fix ?

If so the current directory is probably set to c:\windows\system32 or similar rather than the dir where your other bits are.  You an test that with

dir
echo %cd%
pause

(for example).  so there is no fix dir there..

If so suggest you code in the path to the setup too, i.e. \\server\share\whatever or map a drive in th script with a net use and run it from there.

Steve

fix\setup.exe /v /q

Crossed posts there then.... assuming the computer account has access to these files then from a startup script you will probably need to do:

net use x: /delete
net use x: \\app2\netlogon\notes
C:
cd \fix
setup.exe
(etc)
net use X: /delete

There's no need for "cd" or mapping drives; just specify the complete path to setup.exe, starting with the script's current folder:
"%~dp0fix\setup.exe" /v /q
"%~dp0" will expand to the script's drive and path, including the trailing backslash.

you can map a temporary drive to it

@ECHO ON
%windir%\system32\msiexec /i "Notes 8.0.2.msi" /qb /l* c:\notes8.txt
IF %ERRORLEVEL%==0 GOTO :fix ELSE EXIT /B %ERRORLEVEL%
:fix
subst L: /D
net use L: /DELETE
net use L: \\server\share\
L:
cd \share\xyza\fix
"Setup.exe" /v/q
IF %ERRORLEVEL%==0 GOTO :end ELSE EXIT /B %ERRORLEVEL%
PAUSE
net use L: /DELETE
EXIT

when I inserted the DIR command, it was C:\Windows

......................WORKING SOLUTION.......................
net use n: \\app2\netlogon\notes
%windir%\system32\msiexec /i "n:\Wessanen Notes 8.0.2.msi" /qb /l* c:\notes8.txt
IF %ERRORLEVEL%==0 GOTO :fix ELSE EXIT /B %ERRORLEVEL%
:fix
"n:\Fix\Setup.exe" /v/q
IF %ERRORLEVEL%==0 GOTO :end ELSE EXIT /B %ERRORLEVEL%
PAUSE
net use n: /del
EXIT
