help needed in extracting contents of an array

Recommended Posts



I am a complete beginner with very getdetails7b.au3limited coding skills.

I cannot seem to get the coding correct to install a program to the home drive and a folder

to the folder drive , from within a case routine in this script.

eg: run ("$iHomeDrive\temp\myxp32bitprogram")

FileMove("$iHomeDrive\temp\myfolder", "$iFolderDrive\myfolder")

My problem is manipulating the contents of the array, I need to get the drive letters that the arrays point to.

and install to those drive letters.

the value of the two variables only point to the location of the contents in the array

not the value of the actual content itself.any pointers would be very much appriciated.

ps; how do I paste the script in here and get it to scroll instead of attaching? thanks

This "run ("$iHomeDrivetempmyxp32bitprogram")" should be this "run ($iHomeDrive & "tempmyxp32bitprogram")". The next line should be formatted the same. You're putting the variable name in quotes, which makes it a string and no longer references the variable.

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.
