aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh i completely forgot how to do this now...
right the story is i have a customer (old guy not IT literate),has a win98 laptop with Quicken4 (not compatible with xp which he uses......i have sorted this though).
i am trying to write a bat file that will copy all relevant files and folders to the c: drive and then create a shortcut on his desktop for quicken.
the only issue i have is i cant remeber the cmd of how to copy from cd...
i know copy f:\file c:\file but i dont his drive letter..
in short what is the copy from source command..
i thought it was copy %source% but NOPE i have triedx %cdrom% but guess what NOPE.
once i have copied the file to the c:\ (root) the all other commands will work..
i have real brain drain today.
any help will be gladly received and returned by me when you have an issue...
kind regards to all at pc help
