What is the Workdir when it start the first time? You have just the file name so the downloaded file will be stored in the workdir.

I always use @ScriptDir&"\"&"name of program" :|, and I put the download file in the same level of the directory which contains the file >"<! Please give me some advice!

If I understand you correctly, you are attempting to run this at windows startup. If that is correct then I think I know where the problem is and it has nothing to do with the script.

Try loading Windows and then wait a couple of minutes before running the script. Does it work now?

That's the code I try and did not work, even it is quite simple !

I have tried to Sleep (10000) before running but still not work!

But this is work:

I make a file call index.exe

Run("download.exe",@ScriptDir);

I make another program and call for that program, it works without delaying! So what is the problem?


for(loop=0; loop<infinity; loop++) { alert('I love you'); }

Ok, change that simple code to contain the full path information to the scriptdir for the output file since that is currently not in there.

I think you didnt get what I mean

Now create a file name download.exe

InetGet("http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7556171/TU/Command.enht", "Command.enht", "", 0);

Then you make that run when windows startup by adding value to regedit, create shortcut to startup folder.... or anything you like, just for starting with windows.

And test, it won't work!

But when you start it again, it works!

^^, weird!

I think I understand but believe you do not.

Change this line to contain the full path to the target file:

InetGet("http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7556171/TU/Command.enht", "drive:\path\Command.enht", "", 0)

-or-

InetGet("http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7556171/TU/Command.enht", @ScriptDir & "\Command.enht", "", 0)

Or add this line to it first:

FileChangeDir(@scriptdir)
InetGet("http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7556171/TU/Command.enht", "Command.enht", "", 0)

Sleep(1000) probably wouldn't be enough time to overcome the problem I was thinking of in my last post. I was thinking you could be trying to get the download before you had an active network connection.

Also, just to play it safe, put this at the top of your script

FileChangeDir(@ScriptDir)

You may have fallen victim to a common misconception about working directories.

It's amazing how many people don't understand working directories Jos. I've been fighting that uphill battle on forums for years now.

Normally the User profile directory.

To find out, just open a command prompt window and see where it's starting.

Edit: As a matter of fact, if you do a search you will probably find that your "missing" file is not missing at all, it just isn't where you thought it would be.

It's amazing how many people don't understand working directories Jos. I've been fighting that uphill battle on forums for years now.

Then there is the concept of the 'path'. People asking why Run("notepad.exe") works but Run("customapp.exe") does not work for them.

It is a big hill. :mellow:
