Regarding Autoit "run" command.

6 posts in this topic

Why doesn't this work:

Run  	( "%programfiles%\FlashFXP\Flashfxp.exe", "%programfiles\Flashfxp\", "" )

When I try that, it says "Cannot find 'd:\program files\flashfxp\flashfxp.exe'"

Yes, my program files directory is on drive d: and yes, if I click start->run and type "%programfiles%\FlashFXP\Flashfxp.exe," it works just fine.

It also works just fine if I click start->run and type "d:\program files\flashfxp\flashfxp.exe."

What gives?

Any way that I could do this using @ComSpec?

I'm using AutoIt v3, btw.

PS-

I'm currently using the following

Send 	 ("#r")
ControlClick ( "Run","","edit1","","2" )
Send  ("%programfiles%\FlashFXP\flashfxp.exe{Enter}")

But I've had some problems with that one if my computer is running slow. Besides, that won't exactly work on my unattended xp disc as there is no start button during the XP install.

Try adding this to your script.

AutoItSetOption("ExpandEnvStrings",1)

Nah, that didn't help at all...

Anyone know how to do this using the @programfilesdir macro?

I tried

Run ( "" & @ProgramFilesDir & '\FlashFXP\flashfxp.exe""' & "", "" )

didn't work.

Then I tried.

Run (@ProgramFilesDir & "\FlashFXP\flashfxp.exe", "")

didn't work.

Try this

RunWait ( @ComSpec & ' /k "%programfiles%\FlashFXP\Flashfxp.exe"', '"%programfiles%\Flashfxp\"' )

This will close the dos window when finished

RunWait ( @ComSpec & ' /c "%programfiles%\FlashFXP\Flashfxp.exe"', '"%programfiles%\Flashfxp\"' )

This will hide and close the dos window when finished

RunWait ( @ComSpec & ' /c "%programfiles%\FlashFXP\Flashfxp.exe"', '"%programfiles%\Flashfxp\"', @SW_HIDE )

Hope this helps (and works), having to do this from memory as i'm not at my pc at the moment!!

edit:

(Why do my code boxes take up half the page??? :} )

Fixed!
