I am in the process of creating a Windows 7 batch file that has the following requirements:
1. Deletes an old shortcut from C:\
2. Deletes a folder from C:\ with a specifc name "Council"
3. Copies a folder from a network drive to C:\
4. Copies a new shortcut from a network drive to the following location: C:\Users\Public\Public Desktop
5. Generates a report that all actions succeeded to a textfile.
I am novice script writer and I have been piecing this together based on articles that I have found on the Internet. So far,
I have been able to satisfy requirement # 1
Would anyone mind sharing any of their knowedge to assist with this task? Thank you for your assistance with this matter.
We have a large meeting that I provide support for on a government contract. We have to load a folder with Adobe PDF files on to several laptops. During the process, we need to copy a folder with adobe pdf files to the C drive (this is requirement #3). Next we, have to create a shortcut to the index file for the Adobe PDF files in C:\Users\Public\Public Desktop so anyone who logs into the laptop can access the shortcut to the adobe files on the laptop (this is requirement # 4). We typically delete the folder with the adobe files from the last meeting (this is requirement # 2). This folder has a name that typically includes the word "Council." Then, we typically delete the old shortcut to the Adobe Files from the last meeting (this is the requirment # 1). I'd like to automate this process with a batch file since we typically have to do this manually on 15 or more laptops. Thanks.
