You probably will have to. But, it is also possible to know if the
drive where the application is running from is a CD drive or not.
Take a look at JCL's function GetDriveTypeStr. So, if the drive type
is a CD drive, then you can use Florian's suggestion, otherwise use
the INI file. This way you wont need to have 2 separate executables.
