Wow! Danke schön! Ed for the updated code. Yep I am a big W7 fan can you tell? lol. Your code is only 3kb and working Great for OEMs, I won't be able to test on a Non-Oem machine til late next week, but I see you have set "$manufacturer=custom" but do not
have a goto Custom like Squashman's post, so will it work with a non-oem or does that need to be added? The custom thing was why this thread started in the first place.

btw..I am not familiar with :§init ( paramRAW ) what does that do? :?:

If at any point in time you use goto, look very carefully whether you really need it.
In 95% of cases it can be replaced with a 'call cmd /c exit %errorLevel%'.
The only valid cases of using goto is when breaking a loop 'for /l %%? in () do goto :breakFor'.

Nothing, to DOS everything after a label is comment.

Hi Dos Probie,
Ed is setting the manufacturer name to custom first and then it will be changed if it finds a new manufacturer in the wmic command. So it works for OEM and custom.

Ed, thanks for writing the code. No computer for me for a few more days until I get back home.

You shouldn't need any redundant code at all for your non oem computers.
If the directory structure and file names are consistent with the oem and non oem computers then you only need one set of code to do what you want.
