For those who want to tune their XPCD


Recommended Posts

You should use %systemDrive% In stead of c:\ plus you should run a check to see if the folder exists, before the copy.

Here is a vbs Script That will check for this Folder %SystemDrive%\TempForIcon if it not there then it makes the folder. It then checks for this folder %SystemDrive%\XPCD then it copies the list of files.

Re-Edit with the correct entries added the new file list by Yzowl thanks for the info.

The following entries are all incorrect, since they do not exist

  • acces.cp_ moriconx.dl_ regedit.ex_ sndvol.ex_ taskmsgr.ex_ winntbbu.dl_ zipfldr.cp_

The following may prove a little more successful:

TITLE .:FiLe CoPiEr - ThEuTlAsS:.

Re Edit Removed the file listed by Yzowl thanks for the info.
@ gunsmokingman

The files didn't want removing, they wanted correcting as in my posted batch file.

access.cp_ moricons.dl_ regedt32.ex_ sndvol32.ex_ taskmgr.ex_ winntbbu.dll zipfldr.dl_

Of course, the fun thing is that at the moment, there are still thirty eight people who have downloaded the incorrect, original batch file, since I posted about the incorrect entries; thirty five since I added my version of the corrected batch!

Alternating caps? Are you 12?

Alternating case is an easy way to make code more readable and this is true with all script and programming languages.

MSFN forum rule # 7b

I completely disagree. In fact, this is the FIRST script that I've ever seen written in alternating caps. Caps emphasis (CE) and space emphasis (SE) are the easiest for people to read (that is, general reading ... like an essay, blog, email, etc). But that's neither here nor there.

There's a very defined line between flaming and sarcastic rhetoric. Obviously I think it's juvenile to use alternating caps, but expressing that opinion through rhetoric lightens the situation, as opposed to just saying "Alternating caps is quite juvenile." The latter would be closer related to a flame. "Is it necessary to make such comments?" one might ask. Well no, it isn't. But then again, I'm just being silly (much like how alternating caps is silly). ;)


I just read someone else's reply. It's obvious you were thinking of CamelCase, not sTudLyCaPs.

And this is right out of Wikipedia as well (regarding studly caps):

It appears to have been popularized among adolescent users during the BBS and early WWW eras of online culture, as a form of rebellion against the rules for proper capitalization of names and sentences.

English is not my primary language and yes I was refering to CamelCase. I thought your comment were based on VBScript or batch posted as reply. I did not took the time to look at ExTrAcT.cMd and it's obvious now that your comments make sense.

My mistake... :blushing:

BTW, it's more newbie than age related. After few batches, he will choose his prefered case and will not hardcode path anymore. :P

What I do not like is the fact that you have added nothing that has improved his batch.

He choose to have it that way, did it occour to you that he has it that way so it sticks, out

in the thread, and all this person was trying to do was help the other members here.

Yzowl and I choose to help and try and make his batch better, it does not bother me that

he choose to have it posted like that. It just a name nothing more or less it will not affect

the way the batch runs.
