Heloo, I am building antivirus in bat and want to check if a certain file exists in the system

I want something like this

Code: Select all

results = find("myfile.exe")
if %results% not empty
path = "myfile.exe".path

You could start by writing actual batch file code instead of pseudo code. Not a single line of your code would execute correctly.
