concatenating a variable onto another

Recommended Posts

ddoberloh

I am writing a script to auto install the software we have created onto a machine. The problem is that the version changes with each test, thereby changing the installer name. I figured i could pass the version number through the command line.

The command on the prompt will go something like this:

AutoIt3.exe myProg.au3 <versionNum>

In My program I am then trying this line.

Local $directory = "C:\Users\Dustin\Downloads\" + $CmdLine[1] + "installername.exe"

Which doesnt work... Is there a way to append or concatenate the version number into the directory variable?

I dont want to have to hardcode this into my program everytime the version changes

And make sure to either pass the backslash as parameter or add it to the code:

Local $directory = "C:UsersDustinDownloads" & $CmdLine[1] & "installername.exe"
