Good Morning,
Firstly please excuse my igonorance windows scripting is not my strong point :)

I am trying to script an install of Teradata odbc, the install needs to be located in in D:\Program Files not C:\Program Files (All application specific installs need to be located in D:\Program Files).

When i use the following code:
      Set INSTALL_PATH=%SOURCEDIR%\FILES
      Set INSTALL_64=INSTALLDIR="D:\%PROGRAMFILES%"
      SET MSG=Running an install of Teradata GSS Client 64-bit
      %SOURCEDIR%\FILES\TeraGSS__windows_x8664.13.00.00.00\setup.exe /S "/v/qn %INSTALL_64%"
        SET ERRNUM=%ERRORLEVEL%
        IF %ERRNUM% EQU 3010 SET ERRNUM=0
        IF %ERRNUM% NEQ 0 GOTO ERROR

The Set INSTALL_64=INSTALLDIR="D:\%PROGRAMFILES%" command seems to try and set the INSTALL_64 to D:\C:\Program Files............Is there a way I can set %PROGRAMFILES% to D:\Program Files???

Thanks
