what do you mean open c: drive? browse it? or open up the folder? opening up the folder is impossible (i think), but browsing is possible... i think catalyst did something like that.

o, not possible.. i dont think at least... you can execute exes from c drive using turing, but i dont know why you'd need to do that... this can be down in c++ tho, cuz you can open up dos using vc and you can then cpy files from the c drive to your own account

i'm not sure what kind of help you need with sorting but it turns out it is possible to access (open) the c: using turing. good ol' Sys.Exec!

code:

if Sys.Exec ("C:") then
end if


i just used an if statement because Sys.Exec is a function, and therefore returns a value. you could also have put Sys.Exec ("C:") but it'd be dumb to have a window pop up and say true.

or you can copy a shortcut to something (anything), then select the shortcut, press ALT+ENTER (assuming the admin has restricted right-clicking), and change the shortcut path to wherever you want to go. problem with that one is that i think someone found out about that last year and now i can't use ALT+ENTER, and even bringing in a copy of a shortcut to c: didn't work for some reason. Rolling Eyes

but the moral of the story is this: stop trying to get access to areas that people don't want you getting into, because that's bad. so, there you go.

% HERE IS YOUR PROGRAM:
var number : int
var file : string
put "Enter number 1 for C DRIVE"
put "Enter number 2 for A DRIVE"
put "Enter number 3 for D DRIVE"
put skip
put "Enter your number now: " ..
get number


% CHECKS WHICH NUMBER HAS BEEN PRESSED
loop
if number = 1 then
file := "c:"
exit
elsif number = 2 then
file := "a:"
exit
elsif number = 3 then
file := "d:"
exit
else
put "Enter the correct number (1,2,3): " ..
get number
end if

end loop


% DISPLAYS
if not Sys.Exec (file) then
put "An Error Has Occured while opening the Drive ", file, " ", Error.LastMsg
else
put "Success"
if number = 1 then
put "Drive C will open now"
elsif number = 2 then
put "Drive A will open now"
else
put "Drive D will open now"
end if
end if


All you hae to do is just use the Sys.Exec statements.

hmm.... i didn't think you'd be able to open control panel but i guess you can. not very different either
code:

if Sys.Exec ("Control Panel") then
end if

but i don't think you'd need it. even on school computers you can get to the control panel, but there isn't much you can do there so it's pretty useless.
