    What type of error are you getting? What is being returned in the file search variable? How are you setting %name%? Are you sure that it contains the proper value before it enters the file search action? Please note that you can add a Dialog.MessageBox action to show the contents of a variable at any time during the install. Please add some of these and get back to me with the results.

    Search for multiple files in folders ......

    Here is my problem....
    -My client has the choice of selecting files for download, and verifing that they are not already installed.
    -Say I have in my DB 50 files, they all have the same name, BUT they are different files.....
    -My user need to know that say "file1.txt" is already on his computer.
    -In the DB, the zip names are, etc.
    -When he goes to chose a file, he is shown "file1-1", "file1-2" etc.
    -Since I cannot name 50 zips with the same name, the code :
    Store in Variable %filexists%
    Search for File %name%.txt

    Does not work......
    I have tryed different wildcards, to no avail.......

    Any help/Ideas please.... ;-p
