change directory in batch file using variable
Here's the question:
set Pathname = C:\Program Files cd %Pathname% pause
The above doesn't change the directory, as I would expect. Can anybody please tell me why?
The set statement doesn't treat spaces the way you expect; your variable is really named Pathname[space] and is equal to [space]C:\Program Files.
Remove the spaces from both sides of the = sign, and put the value in double quotes:
set Pathname="C:\Program Files"
Also, if your command prompt is not open to C:\, then using cd alone can't change drives.
cd /d %Pathname%
simple way to do this... here are the example
cd program files cd poweriso piso mount D:\<Filename.iso> <Virtual Drive> Pause
this will mount the ISO image to the specific drive...use
