Compiling a script from within a script ??

Recommended Posts

DarkAngel

Is there any way to compile a script from within a script apart from attching aut2exe with the compiled script? I was trying to make an utility which would allow users to make a standalone exe from a script that would be generated based on inputs/choice/preferences that they provide ... is it possible ? :)

DarkAngel,

Not unless the machine on which you are compiling has its own copy of Aut2Exe. ;)

However, FileInstalling Aut2Exe and AutoItSC.bin and using RunWait to compile a script created with FileWrite is quite possible, albeit a little fiddly - I have done it myself. :)

DarkAngel,

Every compiled AutoIt script has a copy of the interpreter within it - so you can run uncompiled scripts using that interpreter.

This post explains how to do it. :)
