Compile on runtime

5 posts in this topic

Hi there,

I want an application, in which you can compile a new application with specific parameters. So let's say I coded an application, but the user could give different IP addresses to the new file, then click "Build" and it would output a .exe file with the IP adresses.

Can this be done with AutoIT? Since I know you can call @AutoITExe with like MsgBox so it could possible compile aswell?

Thanks in advance!

gerwim,

Can this be done with AutoIT?

I have done it, so definitely: YES! ;)

You will need to create an .au3 file with FileWrite and then use Run/RunWait to compile it with Aut2Exe - which you may need to FileInstall if the use does not have Autoit installed on his machine. Not trivial, but not overly difficult. :)

It would probably be easier to use an .ini file than recompiling the script, and just read in the updated data from that when the program is run again.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Ah awesome, thought there would be more dependencies then just aut2exe. Will try that!

No, I need it to be in 1 file, I am not able to use ini files for my project. Thanks for the suggestion though.

There is one more - you need the interpreter stub AutoItSC.bin as well. :)
