Hi !
How can I access Cd-Drive from Dos-prompt without knowing the drive letter. I am creating an installer. J2SDK is to be installled from cd-drive. But since installer will run on different computers so I can't specify any drive letter.
Thanks in advance,
Danish

There's an API in Windows to get all drives with their class (harddisk, CD, floppy, etc.).
I don't have a Win32 API reference here so I can't give you the exact function to use (it was a few years ago that I used it, and that from Delphi) so you'll have to do some searching around in your language documentation but it IS possible.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
