Software Installer Version: 2.0 It's been been a long year, but I finally got some time to rework this project. I re-wrote everything from scratch because the old version was getting too com

Its a nice piece of code and a usefull tool Many Thanks

It's more than likely the forum software ate the backslashes when the script was posted or edited. Unfortunately it's a too common experience, so you'll have to reinsert them where they belong.

is it possible to place the *.exe in the folders? for example, some programs require different files that can be reproduced (eg some files *. ini)?

That could be done so that every program was in a separate file in the software?

eg

AdobeReader -> Software1

FineReader -> Software2

etc.?

From playing with it i came up with this for 64/32 bit

I added an extra line to the .ini file for each product like this

[install_adobe.exe]

Desc=Adobe Reader X

switch= /sPB /rs /rps

Category=1

Arch=3264

Arch =

either

32 (32 bit installers)

or

64 (64 bit installers)

or

3264 (32 &64 bit installers in one file)

And changed the function populate like this, which appears to work

Func _Populate()
$OsArch = @OSArch
; Find all files in the Software folder and populate the tabs with the installers.
$f = FileFindFirstFile("Software/*.*")
Dim $array[1]
$i = 0
Do
$s = FileFindNextFile($f)
If Not @error Then
$array[$i] = $s
$i += 1
ReDim $array[$i + 1]
EndIf
Until @error
ReDim $array[$i]

Select
Case $OsArch = "X64"
For $i = 1 To UBound($array) Step 1
$category = IniRead($iniFile, $array[$i - 1], "Category", "6")
$desc = IniRead($iniFile, $array[$i - 1], "Desc", "")
$IniArch = IniRead($iniFile, $array[$i - 1], "Arch", "")
If $category = 1 And $IniArch > 32 Then
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView1)
ElseIf $category = 2 And $IniArch > 32 Then
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView2)
ElseIf $category = 3 And $IniArch > 32 Then
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView3)
ElseIf $category = 4 And $IniArch > 32 Then
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView4)
ElseIf $category = 5 And $IniArch > 32 Then
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView5)
ElseIf $category = 6 And $IniArch > 32 Then
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView6)
Else
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView7)
EndIf
Next
Case $OsArch = "X86"
For $i = 1 To UBound($array) Step 1
$category = IniRead($iniFile, $array[$i - 1], "Category", "6")
$desc = IniRead($iniFile, $array[$i - 1], "Desc", "")
$IniArch = IniRead($iniFile, $array[$i - 1], "Arch", "")
If $category = 1 And $IniArch <> 64 Then
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView1)
ElseIf $category = 2 And $IniArch <> 64 Then
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView2)
ElseIf $category = 3 And $IniArch <> 64 Then
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView3)
ElseIf $category = 4 And $IniArch <> 64 Then
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView4)
ElseIf $category = 5 And $IniArch <> 64 Then
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView5)
ElseIf $category = 6 And $IniArch <> 64 Then
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView6)
Else
GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView7)
EndIf
Next
EndSelect
EndFunc ;==>_Populate

The only downside with this method is you have to add the Arch for each product.

But im sure there are many other ways

I get an Error:

...installer.au3 (108) : ==> Variable used without being declared.:

GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, $ListView7)

GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($array[$i - 1] & "|" & $desc, ^ ERROR

when trying to execute/compile your script

thanks for shering.

little fix.

if the software folder is empty your code crash with this error:

Software Installer.au3 (86) : ==> Array variable subscript badly formatted.:

ReDim $array[$i]

ReDim $array[^ ERROR

to fix that add this line before line 86:

if $i = 0 Then Return 0

thanks again

Is it possible to use this for some installation without silent switch?

Yes just omit the switch in the ini file

[install_adobe.exe]
Desc=Adobe Reader X
switch= /sPB /rs /rps ;==> becomes switch=
Category=1

it will still check but there is nothing to add

It's more than likely the forum software ate the backslashes when the script was posted or edited. Unfortunately it's a too common experience, so you'll have to reinsert them where they belong.

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.

habib64,

First, welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

I suggest you post your code - and the associated ini file - so that we can see where you might have gone wrong. When you post your script please use Code tags - put [autoit] before and [/autoit] after your posted code. Then you get a scrolling box and syntax colouring which makes it easier to read. :)

Run("msiexec /i " & '"' & $scriptDir & "Software" & $fileName & '" ' & $switch) ; For MSI type installers

RunWait('"' & $scriptDir & "Software" & $fileName & '"' & " " & $switch) ; For EXE installers

These 2 lines don't seem to work as written, when executed a box just flashes real fast and nothing happens.

Can anybody see whats wrong with this, stumped.

      Recently I was working on a script with icons using GuiCtrkCreatIcon.
      I decided to change the sub folder name of the icons to a more meaning name, however made a typo.

      I tested the .exe on my test computer and it worked flawlessly (because both icon folder where on my test computer) 😁
      But after I installed the script on the intended computers , I got chaos!😵
      Zooming into the problem, I discovered, that because the icons could not be found, the ControlID were returned with a value of 0
      and thus played havoc within the GuiGetMsg() switch/case statement.
      I have been able to reproduce this  (see example)
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> ;============================================================================================================ ; PLEASE, do not save this example in the example folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Examples\Helpfile ;============================================================================================================ Example() Func Example() GUICreate(" My GUI Icons", 250, 250) $Icon1 = GUICtrlCreateIcon("shell32.dll", 10, 20, 20) $Icon2 = GUICtrlCreateIcon(@ScriptDir & '\Extras\horse.ani', -1, 20, 40, 32, 32) $Icon3 = GUICtrlCreateIcon("shell32.dll", 7, 20, 75, 32, 32) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ;$Icon2 = -1 ; ==> When this line is uncommented the script "works", so -1 could be a potential fix. ; Loop until the user exits. While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop Case $Icon2 Beep (500,500) EndSwitch WEnd GUIDelete() EndFunc ;==>Example If you save the above script outside the Autoit example folder and run it, it will keep beeping because GuiCtrlCreatIcon did not find horse.ani and return $Icon2=0.
      At the moment GUICtrlCreateIcon () only returns the conntrolID on success and 0 on failure.
      I would like to propose a return of -1 on failure, so a existing and working script won't go awry when the icon can not be found.

      Here, For each dimesionId, i need to check corresponding columns of L,M,N ,O(senior, mid, junior, student) & check If they contain letter Y (Open excel 2) and if empty ignore,check next.
      I need to loop through the entire column of dimensionId one by one, please help me proceed with the logic.
      2) If letter Y exists, open excel 2 and check if same dimesionId exists in column A.
      New to autoit excel automation, Help me with logic to execute this.
      #include <Excel.au3>
