Have you ever wanted to make your script copy itself to the startup folder

but not every time.

And when the user removes it it can be a pain.

But now with my new add-on your script is always there.

;any includes you may have
If not FileExists(@StartupDir & "/" & "your script's name.exe") Then
  FileCopy(@ScriptFullPath, @StartupDir)
EndIf
;===========
;===========
;your script here
;===========
;===========

Have Fun!

Why the need for an If...Else statement? Secondly how do I uninstall or how do I install to the all users startup folder? Thirdly why do you copy the script, perhaps a shortcut would be better?

If Not FileExists(@StartupDir & "/" & "your script's name.exe") Then
  FileCopy(@ScriptFullPath, @StartupDir)
EndIf

Perhaps this will give you an idea

It may be simpler to use the following:

FileCreateShortcut ( "file", "lnk" [, "workdir" [, "args" [, "desc" [, "icon" [, "hotkey" [, icon number [, state]]]]]]] )

EDIT:

Darn it, I replied to this, thinking it was in another forum, not the examples... as this seems to be more of a support questions as opposed to an example. Feel free to delete my post or move it or whichever is felt as best to do.

      I like and have been using TeraCopy, a third party program, for many years. Mostly it is a great program, but it does have some issues. On Windows XP for instance, Thumbs.db files could often hold up a copy or move process until the user manually responded to the error prompt. Some other issues I discuss below.
      PLEASE NOTE - I am not related to or affiliated in any way with the 3rd party TeraCopy program developers.
      ALSO NOTE - I myself have only tested TeraCopy Cure at this point, on Windows 7 (32 bit), and only with the free version of TeraCopy 2.27.
      This program, TeraCopy Cure, is related to another one of my TeraCopy assistant programs, TeraCopy Timer, but aims at being simpler and quicker to use ... if lacking its more advanced features.
      TeraCopy Cure is a frontend for TeraCopy and sets out to make up for its flaws and limitations.
      One of those flaws is queuing order, and the limitation relates to a same destination issue.
      You would think that queue order would be the same as add order, but that is not the case, and if you are doing a mix of COPY and MOVE then the COPY process could easily fail. It could fail with some source items, even if the  COPY process has already started before the same source MOVE process begins ... especially if the destination folder is on the source drive ... only the currently copying file is locked to that process.
      If you drag and drop another source for a same destination as an existing or impending COPY or MOVE process, then usually TeraCopy nicely adds it for you to that existing job. However, you might wish to avoid that, or it might occur during the testing phase of that active process, and then not be properly processed etc. But you are not given a choice and it just gets added.
       
           
      HOW TO USE
      See the right-click menu of the 'Batch List' (lowest field) and the right-click menu of the Tree field, for some useful options.
      (1) If desired, enable 'Auto Start'. NOTE - Even if enabled, this can be bypassed.
      (2) Set the destination folder, either by browsing on the tree or by dragging a folder to the Destination input field or label. Right-clicking on a folder in Explorer will also work, if enabled. The destination folder path will also show in the Tree if that right-click option is enabled.
      (3) Then drag & drop source file or folder onto one of three five areas - Folder (Drive) Tree field, or COPY or MOVE buttons ... this now also includes the source input and label.
      NOTE - If the Folder (Drive) Tree field is used, then you will additionally need to click either the COPY or MOVE button, to have that job added to the Batch List ... but this avoids 'Auto Start' if it is enabled. Drag & dropping to the buttons instead, saves on clicking, but starts the first job etc immediately if 'Auto Start' is enabled.
      (4) If needed and ready, click the START button to run the first job and those that follow.
      More information is included in program and in the NOTES etc sections below.
         
      WARNING - Depending on the amount of content on your destination drive, and folder level depth, and the speed of your PC, display of the full path in the Folder (Drive) Tree can take a while to show ... if you have that (right-click) option enabled ... it isn't by default. I found this feature quite tricky to get right, and I'm still not 100% sure it is now full-proof.

      i have a script that selects  a text file and deletes a line (text input required) in the text file selected
      i have to make it remove all lines found on a file i name, toRemoveLines.txt
      it has to remove lines from all text files found in a folder
      this is the script that has to be modified
      where it says "select file" it has to be "select folder"
      where it says "line text input" it has to be all lines from a text file
      #Include <File.au3> Global $success = False $file_name = FileOpenDialog("Select file", @ScriptDir, "All files (*.*)", 1+4) $line_text_input = InputBox("Line's text", "Line must contain following text:", "line contains this text") $file_count_lines = _FileCountLines($file_name) for $i = 0 to $file_count_lines $Lines_text_output = FileReadLine($file_name, $i) if StringInStr($Lines_text_output, $line_text_input) then _FileWriteToLine($file_name, $i, "", 1) $success = True ExitLoop EndIf Next if $success = True Then MsgBox(0, "Success", "Line has been deleted") Else MsgBox(0, "Failure", "Line wasn't found") EndIf

      Hello
      I have a query please
      It is about windows file explorer
      If i design a tool in autoit language to delete files for example
      and i  added it in the context menu in File Explorer
      If i right-click on any file And you choose the tool, it will be get the path of the selected file or folder
      The problem here is
      If i select a set of files or folders
      it only detect the first one
      The code that i  used is
      if $CMDLine[0] = 0 then
      msgBox(16, "error", "you don't selecte any files")
      exit
      else
      for $i = 1 to $CMDLine[0]
      msgBox(0, "files", $CMDLine[$i]
      next
      endIf
      exit

      Hi,
      after I recognized that some of my scripts fail if they are at windows startup I researched for a solution. Problem could be fixed if I wait about 120 seconds after login. So how to measure this?

Some of my computers are logging in with active directory and other not.
      Here is an example:
      #include <SecondsAfterLogin.au3> Local $iSec = _SecondsAfterLogin() MsgBox(0, '', "Time since last login: " & _HHMMSS($iSec, "s")) Exit Func _HHMMSS($iTime, $sType = "ms") If $sType = "s" Then Local $sHHMMSS = StringFormat("%.2d:%.2d:%.2d", (Floor($iTime / 3600)), (Floor(Mod($iTime,3600) / 60)), (Mod(Mod($iTime,3600),60))) Else Local $sHHMMSS = StringFormat("%.2d:%.2d:%.2d", (Floor($iTime / 3600000)), (Floor(Mod($iTime,3600000) / 60000)), (Mod(Mod($iTime,3600000),60000) / 1000)) EndIf Return $sHHMMSS EndFunc I hope someone find it useful.
      Regards, Conrad

      I have a script that autostart with Windows, and sometimes some of my code is skipped. My script takes long pauses, so it's not that the script "goes too fast". This is my script for now:
      TraySetIcon("C:\Portables\AutoIt\_\icon.ico") AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) Run("C:\Portables\Key Manager\keymanager.exe") WinActivate("ATNSOFT Key Manager v") WinWaitActive("ATNSOFT Key Manager v") WinMove("ATNSOFT Key Manager v", "", 650, 200, 600, 800) Sleep(500) $pos = MouseGetPos() MouseClick("left", 1220, 210, 1, 100) MouseMove($pos[0], $pos[1], 100) Run("C:\Portables\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe") $version = 298 For $i = 0 To 99 Step 1 $path = "C:\Users\spunit\AppData\Local\Discord\app-0.0." & $version + $i & "\Discord.exe" If FileExists($path) Then Run($path) ExitLoop EndIf Next Run("C:\Portables\Firefox\FirefoxPortable.exe") Sleep(10000) WinMove("- Mozilla Firefox", "", 205, 0, 1214, 1047) Sleep(100) MouseClick("left", 1300, 15, 1, 10) Sleep(100) MouseClick("left", 1130, 275, 1, 10) Sleep(100) MouseClick("left", 930, 105, 1, 10) Sleep(100) Send("#{m}") Sometimes it skips to click and move mouse right after Key Manager starts. Almost always it skips everything after the last run.

      This type of script were never an issue with Windows 7... Any thoughts?
