Autoit Zip with password

4 posts in this topic

I know there are includes for zipping files in AutoIt but can it also password protect the zip file as well?

If you use freeware rar.exe or 7z.exe (or paid winrar.exe) then you can specify the "p" switch to add a password. I am not certain with the dll version, but I would imagine that you canYou can also search for the zip32.dll UDF version...that has password protection as well

Ok So I am completely new to AutoIT and learning. So far I have created a script that will copy files to usb drive successfully. What I am now looking to do is to zip up all those files into a password protected zip. I cannot seem to figure out how to do this. Could you show me a sample?>

Thanks

Example with WinRAR because I'm lazy

$FolderToArchive = "C:\Test"
$DestinationFolder = @DesktopDir
$ArchiveName = "TestBackup"



$wCommand = @ProgramFilesDir & '\WinRAR\winrar.exe A -afzip -y -r -ep1 -m5 "' & $DestinationFolder & "\" & $ArchiveName & '" "' & $FolderToArchive & '"'

RunWait($wCommand, @TempDir)
