  • Find a file on Windows 2000

    We are using Hyena 6.0 rev C running on a Windows NT 4.0 environment. We have a program named Stedman's Dictionary. When you install Stedman’s it will rename the file tmssp3en.lex to lexb4sp and copy a new tmssp3en.lex. That is the only trace it leaves from the installation.

    The location of this file is:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Proof

    Is there a way Hyena could help us to locate this file?

    Thanks in advance

    You should be able to do this by creating a Custom Tool to run the DIR command.

    You'll go to Tools->Settings->Tools and click New. Give it a Menu Caption of something like Find File, then enter the following into the Command Line box:

    Cmd /x/c dir \\%E%\C$\file.dat /s >>c:\results.txt

    To run this, select the computers you want to search in Hyena's right window, then right-click and choose Tools->Find File.

    This will execute the above command for each of the selected computers, replacing the %E% with the computer name for each, and save the output to c:\results.txt.

    You can then open c:\results.txt and look through it to see on what computers the file was found.
