Open Executable without Script being in file

Recommended Posts


I have two similar files that need to be accessed by 1 script.

So there is file 1 and file 2 that have the same executable file name located within. When I change the executable name in one of the two files the script still only accesses one of the executable not both. How am I able to call on file 1 and file 2 executable with the script not being located in the files.

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

I am afraid I have no idea what you are asking us to do. Perhaps you could post the script and give us the names of the 2 files so that we can try to understand your problem and offer some assistance.

When you post code please use Code tags - put [autoit] before and [/autoit] after it. ;)
