Problem using operators in script

3 posts in this topic

Good morning

I'm working on a script that, depending on the version of Windows the user has, will perform different installation functions and I seem to be having a problem with testing the @OSBuild function with multiple operators.

This is the test section of my script;

$OS = @OSBuild
if $OS => 7600 then
    (Install Windows 7 software)

ElseIf $OS => 6000 And < 7000 Then
    (Install Vista software)

ElseIf $OS => 2600 And < 4000 Then
    (Install Windows XP Software)
EndIf

I know that the Windows build number range is greater than I need it to be but I wanted to cover any possible change that an OEM might make to the build number for their own purposes.

The problem is that AutoIt doesn't like the multiple operators as I have them set up, I can use "equal to", "greater or less than" but I get a syntax error with the "=>" operators. I know I'm overlooking something obvious but I'm not sure what. :(

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks..

For the syntax error, see "Operators" in the helpfile. You should always see the helpfile for any problems you have, it's there for a reason you know!

And do OEM's really change the build numbers? That sounds.... Bad.

Thanks AdmiralAlkex,

I had been looking at the helpfile all morning and I guess I stared at it for too long because I completely missed noticing the order that the operators are shown in. :(

As for the OEMs changing build numbers, I've run into several so far with both Vista & Windows 7 where after they got done branding & adding their applications to the installation, they altered the build number - I suppose so they know which release of "their" Windows was installed on the line of PCs. I don't believe it was Dell, I want to say it was Toshiba but I can't remember.

Thanks again..
