File Repair Alternative

Recommended Posts



I have a little dilema.

I have an installation that is corrupt after an update. I would like to be able to repair this using AutoIt. If I "right click" on any file in Windows Explorer, it will fix the repair the installation and continue the final configuration. I have looked at the MouseClick option, but not sure I want to do it this way.

Any ideas on how to trigger this repair?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, dthmtlgod. If right-clicking gives you a repair option, it sounds as though the application was installed through Windows Installer (MSI). If this is the case, I would suggest checking the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall. Look through the keys until you find the application in question. Once you have it, you can run the following to repair the installation:

ShellExecuteWait("msiexec.exe", '/fav "<KeyName>" /qn')
