AutoIT3.exe %* parameter

2 posts in this topic

I have a script that behaves differently when run from the 'Run Script' context menu compared with running through SciTE or typing "Autoit.exe script.au3" in to the command line. I've looked in the registry to see a %* parameter is added after the scriptname.

Running from the commandline with the added %* parameter causes the script to behave as it does through the context menu.

What does it do?

Assuming your revering with "'Run Script' context menu" to the context menu of the windows-Explorer.

I think '%*' behaves differently depending on the file type that it links to.

If its a exe, it run's a new instant of this executable for every selected file. With only that selected file as additional parameter.

If its a bat file. It will run this bat file, only one instant, with all the selected files as additional parameters.
