10 posts in this topic

Hi guys again.

In this script i am trying to run an .exe (a script which installs a wp) in a certain time i.e. 2 hours before the New Year. But i have errors. How i could achieve this ? ( run an .exe from this script)

Thank you very much.

#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <date.au3>
local $target_date = '2013/01/01 00:00:00'
local $hrs, $mins, $secs, $days=0, $diff, $warn = 365*24*60*60, $warn_intrvl = 2 * 60 * 60, $display_time
ConsoleWrite($warn & ' ' & $warn_intrvl & @LF)

local $gui010 = guicreate('',@DesktopWidth,20,(@desktopwidth)/2,20,$ws_popup,bitor($ws_ex_layered,$ws_ex_topmost))
GUISetBkColor(0xABCDEF)
local $lbl010 = guictrlcreatelabel('',0,0,600,20)
guictrlsetfont(-1,10,800,-1,'lucinda console')
_WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($gui010, 0xABCDEF, 250)
guisetstate()

adlibregister('_update',500)

while guigetmsg() <> $gui_event_close

wend

func _update()

$diff = _datediff('s',_NowCalc(),$target_date)

; calcs from UEZ

Local $secs = Mod($diff, 60)
Local $mins = Mod(Int($diff / 60), 60)
Local $hrs = Int($diff / 60 ^ 2)
If $hrs > 23 Then
$days = Floor($hrs/ 24)
$hrs -= $days * 24
endif

local $diff_out = stringformat('%02i Days %02i Hours %02i Minutes %02i Seconds to ' & stringleft($target_date,stringinstr($target_date,' ')), $days, $hrs, $mins, $secs)
guictrlsetdata($lbl010,$diff_out)
$warn -= 1
if mod($warn,$warn_intrvl) = 0 then
traytip('',$warn_intrvl & ' seconds have passed' & @lf & $diff_out,5)
ConsoleWrite('Displaying traytip at ' & $diff_out & @LF)
$display_time = 1
endif
if $display_time = 10 then
traytip('','',0)
$display_time = 0
endif
if $display_time then $display_time += 1

endfunc

I personally dont see why you have created this thread when you already have one further down that the answer could be posted in infact post #10 is you asking this very same question.

< same question but you made a new post!

Personally i dont see how you have tried to achieve this, to me it looks like you just thrown code in there without even reading how its ment to work, and with me being somewhat of a lerner myself trying to dismantle our code and getting it to work is just too much hassel.

Do, Until False < until what is false? Like i said read and learn before throwing code into a bucket and wondering why it does not work.

Try this:

#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <date.au3>

Local $target_date = @YEAR + 1 & '/01/01 00:00:00'
Local $hrs, $mins, $secs, $days = 0, $diff, $warn = 365 * 24 * 60 * 60, $warn_intrvl = 2 * 60 * 60, $display_time, $iStartApp = 2  * 60  * 60, $started = False
ConsoleWrite($warn & ' ' & $warn_intrvl & @LF)

Local $gui010 = GUICreate('', @DesktopWidth, 20, (@DesktopWidth) / 2, 20, $ws_popup, BitOR($ws_ex_layered, $ws_ex_topmost))
GUISetBkColor(0xABCDEF)
Local $lbl010 = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', 0, 0, 600, 20)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 800, -1, 'lucinda console')
_WinAPI_SetLayeredWindowAttributes($gui010, 0xABCDEF, 250)
GUISetState()

AdlibRegister('_update', 1000)

While GUIGetMsg() <> $gui_event_close

WEnd

Func _update()

    $diff = _DateDiff('s', _NowCalc(), $target_date)
    If $diff < $iStartApp And Not $started Then
        $started = True
        MsgBox(0, "Test", "Start your app")
    EndIf
    ; calcs from UEZ

    Local $secs = Mod($diff, 60)
    Local $mins = Mod(Int($diff / 60), 60)
    Local $hrs = Int($diff / 60 ^ 2)
    If $hrs > 23 Then
        $days = Floor($hrs / 24)
        $hrs -= $days * 24
    EndIf

    Local $diff_out = StringFormat('%02i Days %02i Hours %02i Minutes %02i Seconds to ' & StringLeft($target_date, StringInStr($target_date, ' ')), $days, $hrs, $mins, $secs)
    GUICtrlSetData($lbl010, $diff_out)
    $warn -= 1
    If Mod($warn, $warn_intrvl) = 0 Then
        TrayTip('', $warn_intrvl & ' seconds have passed' & @LF & $diff_out, 5)
        ConsoleWrite('Displaying traytip at ' & $diff_out & @LF)
        $display_time = 1
    EndIf
    If $display_time = 10 Then
        TrayTip('', '', 0)
        $display_time = 0
    EndIf
    If $display_time Then $display_time += 1

EndFunc   ;==>_update

The math behind the time calculation is very simple and should be calculated in seconds!

Further, don't open a new topic everytime when you got a new question for the same topic!

@UEZ Yes i will not open another topic.

In the script you gave me and i thank you very much it throws some errors,and i can not understand how it executes another .exe in an exact time i.e 2 hours before new eve or when a user opens his pc and is after 00:00 and 1/1/2013.

Errors i get from the above script.

Try again please. I appeared after I edited the post and I forgot to switch to full edit mode.

Just modify the $target_date value, let say e.g.

$target_date = '2012/12/10 15:45:00'

and wait. You have to enter a time 2h ahead from your local time.

Yes now it works ok, i feel ashamed to bother you and all the others, but is this script suppose to run an .exe ( in my case another compiled script which installs a wallpaper at a specified time ) and if yes in which part of the script i must put the .exe i have ( the name,path).

Thank you,i have no words.

Look at line 28:

MsgBox(0, "Test", "Start your app")

There could be the Run() command.

noobish,

My advice for you is read what the error says and follow the line so you can see it for yourself. Without looking at the code I can tell the ampersand (&) is being replaced with the HTML code equivalent.
