System variables in sfx files & Windows 7
I’m trying to create a self extractor to deliver a text file to a specific location within Windows 7 using the path shown below.
C:\Users%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Pro gram Files (x86)\ZakFromAnotherPlanet\Yazak Chat\YazakPreferences\
When I run the self-extractor I create, it wont deliver the file to the location. If I replace the system variable %USERNAME% in the string with the actual user-name it works perfectly.
Does this mean the system variable %USERNAME% is not valid for use in this way?
Windows 7 64bit
PowerArchiver 2010 version 11.71.04
The Dev team is looking into it, will report back!
Unfortunataly, the %USERNAME% variable is not supported in the SFX
An option that could be of help to you and that should work is the
command, which will extract to the current users’ folder
Let us know how it worked out!
So, in your case it should be as;
%DESKTOP%…\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Pro gram Files (x86)\ZakFromAnotherPlanet\Yazak Chat\YazakPreferences\
Ok! That’s great, I will try that later today and report back the result.
Bless you !
thats some creative thinking there
