This might make a long batch file, but is it possible to do something like :

If exist c:\hddup\hddup.exe then hddup.exe
if exist d:\hddup\hddup.exe then hddup.exe
if exist e:\hddup\hddup.exe then hddup.exe
....

Sounds good. Having the app on the drive, and just finding a way to find it sounds like a good solution. I'm not familiar with xgrep or lmod. Can these search drives for a specific file?

I think the problem lies in the answer to "You should be able to direct any write operations to the USB stick directly". I have no control over what directory temp files are written to. The author designed the latest version to be on a bootable USB drive all by itself, and I assume writes to the cur...

I don't think I understand. The program will easily fit in a 1.44 floppy image, but if it's in an image, I'm guessing I won't be able to write to to the image. With previous versions of this program, that's what I did. The author even included an image. With this version, he's telling me to install ...

Sounds good. Unfortunately, I need to get rid of himem, and preferably the other two as well. I've had a great deal of difficulty in compatibility with this program, and I'm trying to do exactly what the author recommends. He specifically mentioned no memory managers. Can these be disabled by defaul...

Sorry, the first problem was figuring out how to run the program from a directory instead of an image. At least it was a problem for me :) As for answering a whole bunch of prompts, I'd probably not make all those annoying prompts in time, and I'd wind up rebooting many times. This would eventually ...

Installing to USB Drive and writing to program directory

I'm trying to install a small program into UBCD, installed on a USB drive, so that it can write back to it's directory. I've put the program in the DOSAPPS directory, and I think that part of it is OK (I'm not sure, I've never gone this far in customizing UBCD). The second problem is that this progr...
