Compile makes program not function.


Recommended Posts

I have a simple script that opens a program, Clicks on buttons then exits. It works fine in .au3 format but when I compile it, it dont work.

run("C:\Program Files\Playnet\Playgate\PlayGate.exe 1","")

Would how Iam running the program be the cause?

Note: The 1 is a needed parameter when opening the program.

Nope that didnt fix it.

Little info- Playgate is a launcher for a game called WW2OL. Now when I run the program I dont see the launcher at all but get a "playgate" error which is showing that the program is getting called but not correcrtly some where.

Found the problem, The para-meter "1" isnt working. Is there a way I can run the program like it was being run from a short cut?

But still why does it work as .au3 and not .exe?

Come on I need this fixed? Think it may be a bug in the compile process or something?

what is the error that you're getting? sorry, i don't have the game or the launcher, so i am not able to duplicate or test code on this end. i've never had any problems passing arguments to an executable either compiled or with an .au3, so the error text may help troubleshoot...

Else
            $program = StringReplace($program, "|", @CRLF)
            MsgBox(4096,"","You chose " & $program)
        EndIf

please explain to me what is with the pipeline? |

why are you replacing something that isn't there? just asking sorry if it seems i am nit picking.

Hmm, It cant be my scripting because doing

run ("C:\Program Files\Playnet\Playgate\Playgate.exe 1")

Works again as .au3 form but not when compiled. So compiling it must cancel it some how?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

it's possible that they have their launcher watching to see if it is being run programatically. that is an anti-debugging trick i've seen before. I'm not sure how to get around it, except the obvious option of leaving it in .au3.

Well I found a way around it. (Made autoit write a ShortCut and .bat file to run it then run the .bat file). But still, Maybe Run() should have a "args" ..arg. Like FileCreateShortCut() ??

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

have You tried

run ('"C:\Program Files\Playnet\Playgate\Playgate.exe" 1')

Sometimes this works.
