Need help with a batch file or some other method

I would like to create a file,  that when clicked on by a user (from an intranet link),  will look to see if a specific network folder exists.  If it does not, it will tell the user the application they are trying to access is not installed and will then provide a link for them to click to install it.

If the network folder 'does' exist, it will run another file.

This is needed for a windows environment.  Can anyone give me some ideas please?

Thanks.

It sounds like you'd like to do this with an internal web page.
And it sounds like you want to do it without much or any programming.
The web page could have links to files, such as a .bat file.
The .bat file would run on the users local computer.

Here's a file written using Word, saved in .html format that links to a .bat file on another computer in the network.

Simple, crude but should work.
