27 posts in this topic

Can u guys create a autoit

if file XXX.XXX Exist run...

wait

If file bbb.bbb Exist run...

wait

if file ddd.ddd Exist run...

that is all i need

purpose: I want to combine Firefox (Simon's Silent Installer) and My Profile.exe (silent extension, themes, and etc Installer) into one Winrar file.

Instead of having to use a batch command to launch simon's installer and then my profile.exe. I want to use autoit instead.

thanks

If FileExists  ( @ScriptDir & "\setup_1.exe" ) Then
       RunWait ( @ScriptDir & "\setup_1.exe" )
EndIf

If FileExists ( @ScriptDir & "\setup_2.exe" ) Then
      RunWait ( @ScriptDir & "\setup_2.exe" )
EndIf

.....

Really don't see where AutoIt would be better than a batch for this....well its a bit more flexable in where you place files but thats it.

Any ways enjoy :)

Well don't take what I said wrong...I do prefer AutoIt over batch for nearly every thing...just if you had a batch file already done....it would make little since to create a AutoIt script is all. :)

Yeah I'll be posting the correct script here in a bit...next 5-10min :)

If FileExists  ( @ScriptDir & "\Firefox10_Silent_EN.exe" ) Then

    RunWait ( @ScriptDir & "\Firefox10_Silent_EN.exe" )

EndIf

If FileExists ( @ScriptDir & "\profile.exe" ) Then

      RunWait ( @ScriptDir & "\profile.exe" )

EndIf

firefox installs ok, but my sfx profile does not install.

Conditions. Very easy with Autoit. Basically any condition can be used.

Worth learning Autoit as batch programming is limited.

Autoit is a very powerful language indeed.

Is this what you wanted to hear, Astalavista ;)

hmm try this then...

Func _Install( $i )
If FileExists  ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $i ) Then
 $PID = Run ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $i )
 ProcessWaitClose( $PID )
EndIf
EndFunc

_Install( "Firefox10_Silent_EN.exe" )
_Install( "profile.exe" )
_Install( ... )

it is working now...

Question: Can i continue adding SFX files to this script?

Func _Install( $i )

If FileExists ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $i ) Then

$PID = Run ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $i )

ProcessWaitClose( $PID )

EndIf

EndFunc

_Install( "SFX001.exe" )

_Install( "SFX002.exe" )

_Install( "SFX003.exe" )

_Install( "SFX004.exe" )

_Install( "SFX005.exe" )

_Install( "SFX006.exe" )

_Install( "SFX007.exe" )

_Install( "SFX008.exe" )

the beauty of Autoit is that it does not show a dialog box which i really hate.

Yes? Depending on the setting of the archives for success. WinRAR uses extraction, then you have execution. 2 separate processes. Do a small test first.

Sorry for bugging you guys (Mhz and Nologic)

what about for Nero Reloaded For Example

I have a RegTweak.reg ->> Followed by NeroReloadedSetup.exe ->> Followed by NeroReloadedHelpFileSetup.exe.

What is the autoit for registering REG file silently, then run two sfx files.

Well if your just looking for batch extraction then I'd use this -

$search	= FileFindFirstFile ( @ScriptDir & "\*.exe" )
If $search <> -1 Then
While 1
 $i = FileFindNextFile ( $search )
 If @error Then ExitLoop

 $PID = Run ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $i )
 ProcessWaitClose( $PID )
Wend
FileClose ( $search )
EndIf

That will run through the current folder and execute all *.exe files one after the other automatically...no need for extra code.

Now as MHz suggested if a secondary process is spawned then some thing like below would be better suited to your needs -

Func _Install( $i1 , $i2 )
If FileExists  ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $i1 ) Then
 $PID = Run ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $i1 )
 ProcessWaitClose( $PID )
 Sleep  ( 500 )
 If $i2 <> "" Then ProcessWaitClose( $i2 )
EndIf
EndFunc

_Install( "SFX001.exe" , "" )
_Install( "SFX002.exe" , "Firefox.exe" )
_Install( "SFX003.exe" , "" )
_Install( "SFX004.exe" , "" )
_Install( "SFX005.exe" , "EmEditor.exe" )
_Install( "SFX006.exe" , "" )
_Install( "SFX007.exe" , "WinAmp.exe" )
_Install( "SFX008.exe" , "" )

Tho maybe MHz has a suggestion for better code...

hmmm

Run ( "REGEDIT /S myreg.reg", "" )

;)

Or if regedit has issues with spaces in folder names maybe -

Run ( "REGEDIT /S " & FileGetShortName ( @ScriptDir & "\file.reg" ) , "" )

replacing "\file.reg" with your actual file name

So I guess some thing like so -

Run	( "REGEDIT /S " & FileGetShortName ( @ScriptDir & "\file.reg" ) , "" )

$search = FileFindFirstFile ( @ScriptDir & "\*.exe" )
If $search <> -1 Then
While 1
 $i = FileFindNextFile ( $search )
 If @error Then ExitLoop

 $PID = Run ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $i )
 ProcessWaitClose( $PID )
Wend
FileClose ( $search )
EndIf

Is what you would be needing for the above unless a secondary process is spawned then you would have to use the other code to deal with that.

Thanks guys now i can use this as a template for my future projects.

I am sorry if i didn't make my question clearer.

For Nero Reloaded the Order must be

First... NeroSerials.Reg

Second... NeroReloadedSetup.exe (SFX file)

Third.... NeroLanguagePack.exe (SFX file)

Example with secondary process spawned

; Merge Reg File
Run ( "REGEDIT /S " & FileGetShortName ( @ScriptDir & "\file.reg" ) , "" )

; Basic Fuction
Func _Install( $i1 , $i2 )
If FileExists  ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $i1 ) Then
 $PID = Run ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $i1 )
 ProcessWaitClose( $PID )
 Sleep  ( 500 )
 If $i2 <> "" Then ProcessWaitClose( $i2 )
EndIf
EndFunc

; Install Nero - Using Fuction
_Install( "NeroReloadedSetup.exe" , "NeroSetup.exe" )

; Install Nero Lang Pack - Using Fuction
_Install( "NeroLanguagePack.exe" , "NeroLangSetup.exe" )

Although you may want to swap out "Run" for "RunWait" for the reg merge....

great scripts... up to now, im stuck at issuing CMD to launch a fileexist command, as well as installing entire apps on a subdirectory. great tips! :D will have to redo my scripts to use pure autoit commands. :):thumbup

Well here is a simple script that can install a number of different types of installers. It could be expanded to cover more tho with out much editing.

So if you don't care where the files end up (default install path) and what your start menu looks like...well you can install a mess of app's and hot fixes with this puppy. ;)

Now I may have things named wrongly...but the exercise works...hehe or should at least. ;)

Create folders as named in the script that use the listed switchs...place the compiled script out side of these folders and then execute it...it should install the contents of each folder with out a hitch.

Func _BInstall( $i1 , $i2 )
$search = FileFindFirstFile ( @ScriptDir & $i1 & "*.exe" )
If $search <> -1 Then
 While 1
 $i = FileFindNextFile ( $search )
 If @error Then ExitLoop

 $PID = Run ( @ScriptDir & $i1 & $i & $i2 )
 ProcessWaitClose( $PID )
 Wend
FileClose ( $search )
EndIf
EndFunc

_BInstall( "\Type 1\" , " /Q /O /N /Z" )
_BInstall( "\Type 2\" , " /Q:A /R:N" )
_BInstall( "\Type 3\" , " /passive /norestart /quiet" )
_BInstall( "\Type 4\" , " /q /n /z" )
_BInstall( "\Inno\" , " /VERYSILENT /SP- /NOCANCEL /NORESTART" )
_BInstall( "\Wise\" , " /s" )
_BInstall( "\Nullsoft\" , " /S" )

Exit

nologic so now i can do this

If FileExists ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $i1 ) Then

$PID = Run ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $i1 )

ProcessWaitClose( $PID )

Sleep ( 500 )

If $i2 <> "" Then ProcessWaitClose( $i2 )

EndIf

EndFunc

_Install( "winampini.exe" , "" )

_Install( "winampini2.exe", "" )

EndIf

EndFunc

nologic

would it be possible to modify the script that u gave me to ...

1. Install SFX (silent installer)

wait till it finishes

then

2. Instal SFX (silent installer 2)

wait till it finishes

3. Install Reg key

i notice sometimes it is too fast that my second sfx is already running with the first sfx finishing.

hmm your above posted code should do that as is...maybe increase the sleep time for the secondary proccess to spawn...if there is one.

Func _Install( $i1 , $i2 )

If FileExists ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $i1 ) Then

$PID = Run ( @ScriptDir & "\" & $i1 )

ProcessWaitClose( $PID )

Sleep ( 1000 )

If $i2 <> "" Then ProcessWaitClose( $i2 )

EndIf

EndFunc

_Install( "ATI_Driver.exe" , "Setup1.exe" )

_Install( "ATI_Panel.exe", "Setup2.exe" )

; Merge Reg File

Run ( "REGEDIT /S " & FileGetShortName ( @ScriptDir & "\ATI.reg" ) , "" )

Now what I'm wondering is if your taking into account if there is a secondary process being spawned or not.

In the above example I incressed the sleep time to 1 second...then the first file is lets say a SFX file...it extracts a file called Setup1.exe and and executes it via the comments section of the SFX file....since this is a secondary process being spawned its added to the same line of code to make sure that every thing dealing with the sfx file goes off with out a hitch prior to starting another sfx file...which its self spawns yet another process.

Just putting -

_Install( "ATI_Driver.exe" , "" )

Will not account for Setup1.exe being ran after ATI_Driver.exe is done extracting it....so in this case one would end up with both Setup1.exe running while ATI_Pannel.exe is also starting up...so make sure your accounting for the secondary process if there is one.

The AutoIt script knows nothing more than what you tell it. :)

Now if thats not the case then I'm kind of stumped...because it should wait till a named process is actually complete before moving on to the next.

Try this -

Func _Install2( $i1 , $i2 )
If FileExists ( $i1 ) Then
 Run ( "msiexec /i " & $i1 )
 ProcessWaitClose( $i1 )
 Sleep ( 1000 )
 If $i2 <> "" Then ProcessWaitClose( $i2 )
EndIf
EndFunc

_Install2( "isscript.msi /qn", "" )
_Install2( "CuteFTP 6 Professional.msi issetupdriven=1 allusers=1 installlevel=1 reboot=reallysuppress /qn", "" )
