    Avantis CDServe shortcut commands

    I cannot for the life of me remember how this is done manually...

    Creating a shortcut in the start menu which will map an image on the CDServer to a virtual drive then run an application from the image.
    The basics, as I recall are:

    C:\Program Files\<location of Avantis client> <various parameters/switches to map required image> <localation of executable file on image>

    If anyone could shed any light asap it would be most appreciated.
    I know it can be done from the Avantis client but, for the purposes of tweaking, I'd like to remember how to do it manually.

    Many thanks.

    Re: Avantis CDServe shortcut commands

    One of mine is "C:\Program Files\Avantis\Avantis Client\MapImage.exe" /M Q: "\\CDSERVER\Census2001 Disk1" /E "Q:\LinksToInstallers\Product 1\cddata\code\intro\chooseview.htm"

    So I guess it's <Path to Avantis Install> /M X: "<Path to CD Image>" /E "<Path to File to Run on Mounted Drive>"

    Where X is the Virtual Drive Letter

    Does that make any sense? I'd just use the built in creator lol.

    The CDServe I used to have worked like this:

    "C:\Program Files\Avantis\CDserve Client\Cdmapw32.exe" /Q /M D: #18 /E "C:\Program Files\Wb99issa\wb99issa.exe"

    where #18 is the number of the CD on the server. In the example above D: is the drive letter to map.
