How do I get the path/folder that script was ran from

Recommended Posts

I am trying to get the location of the folder that I am currently in.

This would be the same location that the AutoIT script was ran from.

I know in VBS it would be


Is there something simular for AutoITscript?

I use this function for all files ! Posted Image

Func _GetParentFolderPathByFullPath ( $_FullPath=@ScriptFullPath )
    $_FilePath = StringLeft ( $_FullPath, StringInStr ( $_FullPath, "\", 0, -1 ) - 1 )      
    If Not @error Then      
        Return $_FilePath
        Return 0
EndFunc   ;==>  _GetParentFolderPathByFullPath ( )

One of these should be what you want (probably the first): :x

@ScriptDir = Directory containing the running script. (Result does not contain a trailing backslash)

@ScriptFullPath = Equivalent to @ScriptDir & "\" & @ScriptName
