Recommended Posts

Is there any way using AutoIt to update the windows file properties metadata? By this I mean the fields such as Title, Subject, Keywords, Comments that are normally accessed via the properties dialog.

Is there any way using AutoIt to update the windows file properties metadata? By this I mean the fields such as Title, Subject, Keywords, Comments that are normally accessed via the properties dialog.

hello, i was looking for the same thing and I found the Microsoft DSOFILE.dll library (search "dsofile" at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads it's free).

First register that DLL (regsvr32 path\dsofile.dll).

Here is some code :

CODE

$path = FileOpenDialog("Choose file (to read/modif some properties)",@ScriptDir,"All (*.*)")

$objPropertyReader = ObjCreate("DSOleFile.PropertyReader")

$objDocument = $objPropertyReader.GetDocumentProperties ($path)

MsgBox(0, "Keywords property", $objdocument.Keywords)

MsgBox(0, "Title property", $objdocument.Title)

$objdocument.Keywords = InputBox("input the new Keywords", "new keywordds")

$objdocument.Title = InputBox("enter the new Title", "new Title :")

MsgBox(0, "news Keywords of that file", $objdocument.Keywords)

MsgBox(0, "new Title", $objdocument.Title)

Limitation : it only works with compatible OLE file types (MSOffice...). It doesn't work with OpenOffice files.
