Autoit and VB Script

4 posts in this topic

Greeting,

I had a VB script, it works fine. Normally I need use CSCRIPt myfiles.vbs to launch it.

Is that any way I can use autoit to make a standalone EXE file like MYFILES.EXE without myfiles.vbs but same function?

Thanks

Yes. You just have to convert the vbs to AutoIt syntax and compile it.

As AutoIt has an "easy to learn BASIC-like syntax" (taken from the help file) it should be easy to convert your script form VBS to AutoIt.

In fact if I have a problem and can't find a solution on the forum I search the internet for a "visual basic" example and then convert it to AutoIt.

If you look in Example Scripts, way way back, there is a vbs to au3 converter. It doesn't handle everything but it does get a lot of it for you and then all you need to do is manual touchups.

EDIT:

Actually I just found the link
