FileInstall Limit

Recommended Posts

Roshith

Hi,

I'm trying to create an installer that extracts about 586 files (3.2 GB) to temp directory, then executes the msi file. For this, I created a script with 586 fileinstall() functions.

Script runs perfectly when executed without compiling. But when executed after compiling, only 263 (~2 GB) files are extracted to the temp directory. The remaining fileinstall() functions returned 0. Is there any limit for usage of fileinstall() in a single script. If so, any work around other than creating a separate script for the remaining files.

When this function is used from a non-compiled script, a copy operation is performed instead (to allow for easy testing pre-compilation).

Files maintain their original creation/modification timestamps when installed.

Hence why it works without compiling. As to the 'issue' a work around would be to compress all those file to a ZIP/7-Zip file and place it next to the compiled exe, instead of using FileInstall, which I've used for relatively small files.

Edit: It also could be (without testing it) because this is loaded into memory first and thus you get the error due to not enough memory available.

Thanks for the workaround!

btw.. I checked the memory consumption by the process. Its just ~4k kb.

And I dont get any errors as such while executing. It successfully extracted files totaling ~2 GB, then fails to extract the remaining files returning '0'.

Please ignore if its a known issue..

Hmm, I don't want to speculate before testing. Also it's not technically related to AutoIt, but it's used for the installer, how about looking at NSIS for such a job?

      I get the "Unable to add resources" error related to AppData\Local\AutoIt v3\Aut2Exe when compiling with a large FileInstall of a 1.5GB file.  Is there a size limit I need to be aware of?  I've also disabled or removed Trend from three different machines and had the same results.  I've had issues like this in the past but have compiled after the Aut2Exe folder was excluded in AV.  That doesn't seem to be the problem this time around.  If I comment out the FileInstall the script compiles successfully.

      Hey there, im looking for a way to build something similar to winrar sfx archives.
      My idea is to somehow pack files into the exe (maybe fileinstall)
      and be able to extract each one to a specific folder if needed.
      Now here's the tricky part, i can't think of a way to update only part of the files like i do in winrar.
      And it would require some work with command line to be able to somehow get a list of the files packed in, and extract one for example.
      Does anyone know of any way to accomplish this? Also, fileinstall that can use variables would be nice.
      Best regards.

      Hello all.  I was playing around with encrypt.au3 and thought it would be neat to build an executable that could extract and decrypt an encrypted file (sort of like an option in PGP if you have ever used that before).  I had to think on the issue of installing the file in the exe because you can't use variable path names.  The approach I came up with may not be the best - others may have much better ideas - but I thought I would share it nonetheless in case anyone finds it interesting.

      Hello!
      If FileInstall('image.png', @ScriptDir) = 0 Then MsgBox(0, "Unexcepted Error", "Damaged file") Exit Will it make any difference if the file was unable to extract?

      Hi, simple question actually:
      How to disable the character limit for an edit control?
      Want unlimited-length (or as much as possible)
      I know the GUICtrlSetLimit() function but i want to disable the limit, not set one...
      Any ideas?
      I thought there was some sort of autoit constant for this or something but cant find what i'm looking for.
