Hi all, I don't know If this was asked, I've searched forum and still found nothing!

How can a program know its own properties, example name!

For instance, I have a file name run.exe, how can the file run.exe knows that his name is run.exe?

I'm making a program but it bases on the main file name, so if users change the file name, the program must know his new name

That's my problem.

A, and by the way, is there anycode that make a program deletes, copies.. himself?

@Scriptname contains the name and filetype (exe, au3) of the running script.

You can try FileCopy to make a copy of the running script, but I don't think you can delete the running script.

msgbox(0,"",@ScriptName & @CRLF)
$sType = StringSplit(@ScriptName,".")
MsgBox(0,"",$sType[$sType[0]])
$Result = FileCopy(@ScriptFullPath,"C:\temp\NewName." & $sType[$sType[0]])
msgbox(0,"Result: ",$Result & ", Error: " & @error & @CRLF)
