Dir of an Include File

Recommended Posts

Dirk12

I have three files:

start.au3 - I double click this file to start the program, it includes "lib/func.au3"

lib/func.au3 - This file runs program.exe by calling Run("...")

lib/bin/program.exe

In order to execute program.exe from func.au3, I need the path to the executable. @ScriptDir returns the path to start.au3, but that's not what I want. I could use @ScriptDir & "/lib/bin/program.exe". However, the result depends on where the library was included from - but I want to be able to include the library from anywhere.

Any ideas how I can get the path to the program?

Welcome to Autoit and the forum!

I don't think you can do what you want to do. All #include directives are processed by a pre-processor and the included file is inserted into the script. Then the whole script is passed to the interpreter. The interpreter doesn#t know which parts of the code have been included.

Dirk12,

Can you "FileInstall" the program that you want to run?
