Copying Files from CD to Floppy Disks in Delphi app.

Postby azarroth » May 30th, 2003, 6:26 pm

:? Does anyone know how to create a method or function to copy a large group of files from a CD to multiple floppy disks in Delphi? (i.e. - creating floppy disk installers Disk 1, Disk 2, etc. if they cannot use a CD on all computers - I have encountered this - rare I know) I use D7. When I do it it locks up. Of course I am using the CopyFile function as outlined in the Filmanex Example in Delphi. That I don't believe is the most efficient way. Any thoughts :?:

Splitting a CD to floppies

If you are talking about installation floppies, the install generator programs (e.g. InstallShield, Wise) probably have to create them in 1.44mb chunks; you cannot just copy the files onto floppies.

I have seen other software create the floppy disk installers from the CD. The software autoruns and you can choose to install directly or create floppy disk installers. Any ideas? :?:
