Hel with create simple AutoIt replacement for .bat file.

Hi.

Some time ago i create this bat file:

@echo off
FOR /F "tokens=2* delims=   " %%A IN ('REG QUERY "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\WinRar.exe" /v "Path"') DO SET WinRarInstallDir=%%B
xcopy *.* "%WinRarInstallDir%" /y /q /e
echo "%WinRarInstallDir%"
exit

but due some unknown reason, it don't work on VISTA/7. I try to solve this but I'm unable to do it.

It is possible to write AutoIt replacement for such simple .bat file ?

What this .bat file do:

1. Read registry and check what is in "Path" in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppPaths\WinRar.exe"

2. Set WinRarInstallDir as what is in "Path"

3. Copy all files with current dir to %WinRarInstallDir%

I don't have experience with AutoIt. Can someone help me with this ?

$s_path = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppPaths\WinRar.exe", "path?")
FileCopy(@SCriptDir & "\*", $s_path)

For RegRead you'll need the registry path and the "key" you want to read. FileCopy supports Wildcards.

Edit:

Oh, welcome to the AutoIT forum!

And:

A good place to start with AutoIT is the very useful helpfile. :unsure:

1. You should test / check whether your script really can read the registry value, just do a MsgBox(0,"regread:", $value_or_whatever)

2. Check the return code of FileCopy() e.g. $returncode = FileCopy($x, $y), read the help file for a list of returnvalues

Maybe you can find a solution then.

I can't help you with the the Vista/7 error message, because I can't read it. :unsure:

Try putting #RequireAdmin at the top of the script.

@Hannes123

You don't need to be able to read that dialog. It's easily recognized as being the UAC prompt window.

#RequireAdmin
$var = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion", "ProgramFilesDir")
MsgBox(4096, "Program files are in:", $var)
$var = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppPaths\WinRar.exe", "Path")
MsgBox(4096, "WinRar.exe is in:", $var)
FileCopy(@SCriptDir & "\*", $var)

Fist command works, we can see C:\Program files in message box. Second command shows empty window !

Why ? It's is the same script, only with different parameters :unsure:
