Script that creates another script and compiles it. How?

4 posts in this topic

Let's say I want to make a program that outputs a file then compiles it as exe.

Note: The client machine may not have autoit installed.

Where would I start?

Thanks.

You'd need to include the Aut2Exe program if you wanted to compile it. A compiled script can run another script without it having to be compiled, using the command line switch /AutoIt3ExecuteScript.


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

FileInstall() seems to work but it extracts all those files when run. Sure I can delete them after that, but...

Can I use Zedna's resources UDF? (I haven't tried)

Putting it bluntly ...

You can't run a script without an interpreter.

You can't compile a script without a compiler.

So the answer to your question is "no".

And for what reason would you want this to be done anyway? I can think of plenty of "up to no good" ones, off hand.
