How to run uncompiled AU3 file via VB6

Recommended Posts

tommytx

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Shell ("test.exe"), vbNormalFocus
End Sub

VB6 can run a compiled autoit file just fine as shown above... is there a way to run the au3 uncompiled version.

Can I put the driving source in front of it... or maybe make up a batch file with the driver + actual file.. and then call the bat file from vb6.

Any thoughts??

I have a series of au3 files that do many different tasks.. and hate to convert each of them to 400k + just so VB6 can run them... they are only about 2 or 3k while uncompiled but immediatley go to 400k + when compiled.

I think you can run it it like this (from cmd for example) :

"AutoIt3.exe myscript.au3"

Thanks PSALTY... I may have to put you on retainer.... worked perfect...

Course my exe pgm was not on my find anywhere list.. so I had to add the complete path..

But for future reference.. if anyone searchs for this same question.. the final code is shown below for using autoit uncompiled au3's with Visual Basic 6....

Private Sub Command4_Click()
Shell ("C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe test.au3"), vbNormalFocus
End Sub

OOPS! meant to give credit to Juvigy.. as his worked perfect... however I am sure Psalty's would have worked if I had read the command line stuff he suggested...
