OS check and subsequent action documentation


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to build an app that will check for the following:

1. OS and whether it is 32 or 64-bit

2. Based on that finding, execute a particular application.

I've looked through here pretty thoroughly but haven't been able to locate the correct resource.

I have considered running a standalone OS checker to address item 1, but the conditions in #2 need to rely on active text and that doesn't appear to be doable without winwaitactive. As there are four choices that will be available, I'm worried that winwaitactive will stall if the first line isn't found.

Any suggestions or doc links are appreciated!

Thank you.

    Case @OSArch = 'X86'
;~       RunWait()
;~       ShellExecute()
;~       Run()
    Case @OSArch = 'IA64'
;~       ...
    Case @OSArch = 'X64'
;~       ...

or use Switch if you prefer it over Select

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.

Try substituting And for & in your Case statement

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.

What about this?

#include <Array.au3>
;array must be sorted at index 0 (architecture)!
Global $array[16][3] = [["X86", "WIN_2008R2", "Notepad.exe"], _
                                        ["X86", "WIN_7", "Notepad.exe"], _
                                        ["X86", "WIN_2008", "Notepad.exe"], _
                                        ["X86", "WIN_VISTA", "Notepad.exe"], _
