also, if the name of my disc is hawi, and the QuickTimeInstaller.exe is a folder named "quicktime installer", is thier a url I can ad to the button, and if so what is the URL? Thanks
The name of the CD will always be the first item the the moviePath. So
if you place your Director movie at the root of your CD then the
moviePath will be the same as the disk's name. If you place the qt
installer at the root level of your CD then it's path will be the same
as your movie. To open that installer on Windows you just need:
because the installer is in the same folder as your movie. If you place
your installer in a folder, then the command would be:
open "folder name\QuickTimeInstaller.exe"
It's location is still relative to the movie. If you do something
unusual, like placing your Director movies in a folder and then placing
the QT installer in a different folder on the CD, then you have a more
complicated path. If that's the case, then you can find the root of the
CD by getting the first item in the moviePath property.
pathDelimiter = the moviePath.char[the moviePath.char.count]
CDRoot = the moviePath.item & pathDelimiter
This function will return the name of the CD on either platform.
Since you placed the QT installer in a folder and named it,you'll know
the name of the folder. So the full path to the installer for Windows
open CDRoot() & "folder name" & pathDelimiter & "QuickTimeInstaller.exe"
This will only work for the windows version. The Mac version requires
that you specify the installer app's path also. Fortunately, Mac OS X
knows the path. So the Mac version would look like this:
open CDRoot() & "folder name" & pathDelimiter & "QuickTime.pkg" with
