Script not working after build

32 posts in this topic

Ok, so I'm working on a script to automate a task for my organization, something I've done many times. While writing the script I press "f5" to run and test. All is working well unless I "build/compile" the script into an executable. When I run the executable version the script stops after the copying process. Any help or suggestions?

Take a look at TrayIconDebug in the help file. When enabled, it can give you some information about which line your script is stalling at.

I'll look into that but it's not "stalling" the script just closes out after the first "_filecopy" starts. It get's one file copied and that's it.

I tried the trayicondebug but like i mentioned the script just closes out as well as the tray icon. What's weird is it runs just fine from the script editor it only has issues when ran as an exe.

Hi,

Debug your script with MessageBoxs (use the Ctrl+Shift+D hotkey in SciTE to check for functions return values), you can also check the @error macro.

even if it works before compiling? I guess i don't understand how to use those debugging processes because in the past if it's worked by pressing f5 to test then it's always worked after i've compiled it.

Yes that's why I adviced to use MsgBox and not ConsoleWrite.

Ok, well I apologize for my ignorance, exactly how do i use the msgbox for debugging? I click the option from tools but nothing happens.

You need to click on the function to debug before firing the option.

I don't know why it does not work, it's supposed to add a MsgBox debug line.

Do it manually like this :

$iSleep = Sleep(500) ;func to debug
MsgBox(262144, "Debug line ~" & @ScriptLineNumber, "Selection:" & @lf & "$i = Sleep(500)" & @lf & @lf & "Return: " & @lf & $iSleep & @lf & "Error: " & @error) ;### Debug MSGBOX

You need to install the full version of Scite4Autoit3 and have a saved .au3 script in the editor.

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.

ok, thank you BrewMan installing the "full" version seem to have done the trick allowing me to add the msgbox debug, plus it looks like i've got a lot more options in the script editor. So now i need same assistance with my script. on $winShell.namespace($tofile).copyhere($fromfile,$fof_respond_yes) seems to be where it stops working but i don't get a msgbox after it runs because the script just closes out.

Func _fileCopy($fromFile,$tofile)

Local $FOF_RESPOND_YES = 16

Local $FOF_SIMPLEPROGRESS = 256
$winShell = ObjCreate("shell.application")
MsgBox(262144,'Debug line ~' & @ScriptLineNumber,'Selection:' & @lf & ' $winShell' & @lf & @lf & 'Return:' & @lf & $winShell) ;### Debug MSGBOX
$winShell.namespace($tofile).CopyHere($fromFile,$FOF_RESPOND_YES)
MsgBox(262144,'Debug line ~' & @ScriptLineNumber,'Selection:' & @lf & ' $winShell.namespace' & @lf & @lf & 'Return:' & @lf & $winShell.namespace) ;### Debug MSGBOX

EndFunc

if i "F5" the script now the msgbox errors out and if i build it it does the same thing it's been doing where the script just closes out after it starts copying.

Are you trying to copy a file using this script? Because there are a lot easier ways to do it than using objects.

I am trying to copy files, but i wanted a progress bar ... i am open to suggestions though.

Ok, I think i've got it figured out. I had a "autorun.inf" file to be copied. for some reason that file was causing the script to end. rename it to something else works just fine. The strange thing is it would work just fine unless ran as an executable. so i guess i'll have it copy it over as a "tmp file" then rename it. and suggestions as to why this "broke" the script?

There's no progress bar in the script you posted, but you can easily add one. There's a link in my signature that points to a customizable GUI with embedded progress bar and label that would help.

#include <File.au3>
Global $aFileList = _FileListToArray("C:\Windows", "*", 1) ; list of files only
Global $sDestinationFoler = "C:\Temp"
Global $iCount = $aFileList[0]
$aProgressGUI= _ProgressGUI("Copying file # 1 of " & $iCount, 1)
For $Loop = 1 to $iCount
    ;here's where you're copying the files
    ;FileCopy(""C:\Windows\" & $aFileList[$Loop], $sDestinationFolder)
    GUICtrlSetData($aProgressGUI[1], Int(($Loop/$iCount)* 100)) ; updates the progress bar
    GUICtrlSetData($aProgressGUI[2], "Copying file # " & $Loop & " of " & $iCount & @CRLF & "Filename - " & $aFileList[$Loop]) ; updates the label text
    Sleep(100) ; only used for the demo, not needed in a real script
Next

I'll take a look at your script but this is a snipit from mine... basically it opens the windows file copy dialogue. and like i mentioned it works great if i don't have that autorun.inf file in the directory. and i just tried a filemove to rename the file but same thing the script closes out. autoit just does not like autorun.inf files it looks like.

AutoIt isn't being used to do the file copy, Windows is. You're using an Windows shell object to copy the file, AutoIt is only giving you access to it. Use FileCopy and get out of the VBScript mindset.

even with filecopy it's still killing the script. I don't know why but i can use filecopy just fine without the autorun.inf file in the directory that i am copying the files from... but if there is a file in there named autorun.inf it kills the script, but not if i use f5 out of script editor. I don't understand this doesn't make sense.
