I'm new to the site (and installshield for that matter). The guy who developed our software's set up routines has left the company, and yours truly has been handed the opportunity to develop a new routine. Anyway enough of the introduction, can anyone help with the following problem I'm having?
Issue: I'm using Installshield 5.5 to create an Auto-Installation routine for our software Tra/x. Tra/x requires Progress Software to be installed, as Progress Software is the engine that runs Tra/x. When creating the set-up routine for Tra/x I have a file "dbsave" that contains all the database files for Progress Software. My installation will have to "restore" these database files from the file "dbsave" (dbsave has no extension).
Problem: I'm having trouble locating a function that will allow me to "restore" the file "dbsave" using DOS commands. The command I need to get to run in DOS is a Progress command. Firstly I will have to "cd" (Change Directory) to the location of the installed dbsave file:
cd d:\test\__ t\db.snd //location of installed dbsave file
from here I need to run the Progress command that will allow me "restore" the dbsave file:
d:\91b\bin\prorest xttraxmu d:\test\__ t\db.snd\dbsave //Progress command need to perform "restore" on the dbsave file
Question: What function can I use in my installation that will allow me to run the DOS commands above, in order to "restore" the "dbsave" file above?
Thanks in advance,
