    hello,

    sorry for my bad English

    this code does not work

    Code:
    IF NOT EXIST "D:\SOURCE\A"  (
    
     SET A=D:\SOURCE 
    
     SET B=%A%\tata
    )
    
    ECHO. %B%
    
    result is   \tata
    
    
    why %a% is not initialized?

    thanks

    I expect following the RESULT 'D:\SOURCE\tata' but I have '\tata' and I do not understand why

    You need to use delayed expansion.
    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    SETLOCAL ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION
    IF NOT EXIST "D:\SOURCE\A\" (
    SET "A=D:\SOURCE"
    SET "B=!A!\tata"
    )
    ECHO. %B%
    PAUSE
    You could of course just arrange things a little differently.
    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    SETLOCAL ENABLEEXTENSIONS
    SET "A=D:\SOURCE"
    IF NOT EXIST "%A%\A\" (SET B=%A%\tata)
    ECHO. %B%
    PAUSE

    Sorry if off topic.
    I want to run two exe files on first logon after Windows 7 installation completion.
    First file name: one.exe
    Second file name: act.exe

    Any one can guide me how to do this? If this require setupcomplete.cmd, please compile cmd for this. Thanks

    You can do something like this...
    (assumes that exe's and cmd file are in the scripts folder for this example)

    Step one to add reg entry in setupcomplete.cmd:
    Code:
    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce" /v !RUN /t REG_SZ /d "%windir%\Setup\scripts\Run.cmd" /f >nul
    Step two to create the Run.cmd itself to install the two exe's:
    Code:
    @echo off
    
    IF EXIST "%windir%\Setup\scripts\one.exe" CALL "%windir%\Setup\scripts\one.exe"
    IF EXIST "%windir%\Setup\scripts\one.exe" DEL /F /Q "%windir%\Setup\scripts\one.exe" >nul
    IF EXIST "%windir%\Setup\scripts\two.exe" CALL "%windir%\Setup\scripts\two.exe"
    IF EXIST "%windir%\Setup\scripts\two.exe" DEL /F /Q "%windir%\Setup\scripts\two.exe" >nul
    
    DEL /F /Q "%~f0"&EXIT >nul
