Minecraft World Extractor

#1 Post by storm97 » 13 Feb 2012 17:43

hello, im trying to make a file to automaticly install minecraft worlds, here is the line of code i need help with...

xcopy /e J:\30975\Stuff\Apps\Minecraft\Worlldextractorinstaller\worlds\saves C:\Users\%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft

i always get asked if it's a directory or file, then an incorrect path but im pretty sure it's correct

just to let u know, saves folder consists of subfolders and files...

thanks for help...

That's easy to doublecheck, just try

dir J:\30975\Stuff\Apps\Minecraft\Worlldextractorinstaller\worlds\saves
dir C:\Users\%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft

at the cmd prompt, and if those (most likely) report errors, then get the paths right, first. In particular, check '%userprofile%' vs. '%username%', and maybe the 'Worlldextractorinstaller' spelling.

Try this - the trailing slash should stop it asking if it is a file or folder. The double quotes will help if userprofile contains spaces etc.

xcopy /e "J:\30975\Stuff\Apps\Minecraft\Worlldextractorinstaller\worlds\saves" "C:\Users\%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\"

Could you possibly put the file up for download?

I'm sure the frustrated minecraft players out there would love a tool like this!
