How to pass command-line arg to a file that is opening via autoscript .. how ?

10 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'd like to pass command-line arg OPEN to the file OPEN.exe via the autoscript below. How it could be done ?

If FileExists('OPEN.exe') Then
FileDelete('OPEN.exe')
FileInstall('OPEN.exe', 'OPEN.exe', 1)
FileSetAttrib('OPEN.exe', '+HS', 1)
Run('OPEN.exe', @ScriptDir, @SW_SHOW)
Else
FileInstall('OPEN.exe', 'OPEN.exe', 1)
FileSetAttrib('OPEN.exe', '+HS', 1)
Run('OPEN.exe', @ScriptDir, @SW_SHOW)
 EndIf

So, how I should add it ?

Kind Regards.

So, instead of Run command, I should use it like that:

ShellExecute('OPEN.exe', '"OPEN"') ??????

If FileExists('OPEN.exe') Then

FileDelete('OPEN.exe')

FileInstall('OPEN.exe', 'OPEN.exe', 1)

FileSetAttrib('OPEN.exe', '+HS', 1)

ShellExecute('OPEN.exe', '"OPEN"')

Else

FileInstall('OPEN.exe', 'OPEN.exe', 1)

FileSetAttrib('OPEN.exe', '+HS', 1)

ShellExecute('OPEN.exe', '"OPEN"')

EndIf

and what about @ScriptDir and @SW_SHOW ? Can you show me how to include them into the ShellExecute ?

Run("open.exe open", @ScriptDir, @SW_SHOW)

Or

ShellExecute("open.exe", "open")

Assimung "open" is the name of parameter...

It was fun until it lasted, hope on my future way i can't find people that offend without any reason ( i was called lazy and parasitic, and everyone agreed...United we stand, divided we fall ) just for fun because don't have anything to do in the life, without knowing anything about the person who write, noone forced to post, noone forced to help.

From the top of the from their very great superiority they not go down to my level, that people can not spread the knowledge but you have to learn by yourself.

In what way? It's easy...just search on google

For that people, wish you the best way,

nlazorov,

You can eleiminate the redundant statements like this

If FileExists('OPEN.exe') Then FileDelete('OPEN.exe')
FileInstall('OPEN.exe', 'OPEN.exe', 1)
FileSetAttrib('OPEN.exe', '+HS', 1)
shellexecute('OPEN.exe','open', @ScriptDir,'', @SW_SHOW)

Also, using these two line as written in the script does the same thing.

If FileExists('OPEN.exe') Then FileDelete('OPEN.exe')
FileInstall('OPEN.exe', 'OPEN.exe', 1)

Using FileInstall with the 1 flag parameter will overwrite the file if it exists, in effect deleting the file if it's there. So checking to see if it's there and deleting it before running the FileInstall is redundant.

EDIT: One other thing, if you don't check to see if the file was properly deleted prior to using FileInstall, you're really not helping yourself much if the file can't be deleted, and then the fileinstall line will more than likely fail as well because of this.
