converting vbscript to autoit

6 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I'm new to autoit, and was wondering if anyone can help me out.

I'm looking for a simple progress bar while running a app silently.

as example let me take ccleaner.exe

for vbscript I use the following, however it seems that cameyo that runs the package cannot handle the script and it hangs.

@echo off

setlocal

echo wsh.sleep wsh.arguments(0)*1000 > %temp%.\timeout.vbs

echo wsh.stdout.write wsh.arguments(1) >>%temp%.\timeout.vbs

set "prog=ccleaner.exe"

set "params/AUTO"

start "" /min %prog% %params%

cscript //nologo %temp%.\timeout.vbs 0 "Running %prog% #"

:loop

cscript //nologo %temp%.\timeout.vbs 0.25 "#"

tasklist /fi "IMAGENAME eq %prog%" 2>nul| find /i "%prog%" > nul && goto loop

del %temp%.\timeout.vbs

echo.&echo Done

I don't want to show the program ccleaner, so I run it silently, but I do want a progress bar to see what the cleaning status is.

Percentages is not needed, just a knight rider bar or something. Don't really care, as long as I see activity

thanks

In my signature is a link to a UDF I created that you can use to display a customizable GUI with Progressbar that might be of some help at least with the Progress bar portion of your request.


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.

BrewManNH gave you a very reasonable answer, with pre-written code that accomplishes what you ask for. Why does this not work for you?

This is what I understood from your CMD/VBS code:

Global $sCCleaner86 = @ScriptDir & "CCleaner.exe " ;don't remove space at the end!
Global $sCCleaner64 = @ScriptDir & "CCleaner64.exe " ;don't remove space at the end!
Global $sCCC_Parameter = "/AUTO"
Global $sCCleaner = $sCCleaner86

If @OSArch = "X64" And FileExists($sCCleaner64) Then $sCCleaner = $sCCleaner64
Global $iPID = Run($sCCleaner & $sCCC_Parameter)
If Not $iPID Then Exit MsgBox(16 + 262144, "Error", "CCleaner could not be started!", 10)

MsgBox(64 + 262144, "Information", "CCleaner started - PID = " & $iPID, 10)

While Sleep(250)
    If Not ProcessExists($iPID) Then ExitLoop
WEnd

MsgBox(64 + 262144, "Information", "CCleaner has finished")

Adjust path to ccleaner.exe/ccleaner64.exe appropriately!
