Please Help - Compressing an EXE along with output AutoItEXE.

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi Guys,

Am new to AutoIt Scripting. I have a requirement.

Am using an exe in my script which is placed in my current folder, eg: abc.exe
my sample script:

#RequireAdmin
run (".abc.exe")
sleep(2000)
MsgBox(1, "Sample", "It Works")

When i complie the script, i get an output EXE. But it works with the abc.exe in the current folder, when i run my output EXE alone it is searching for abc.exe

I want to complie the above mentioned script, and my final AutoIT generated exe have to compress my abc.exe within final exe and should work placing it anywere without the current folder EXE.

Please help.

Thanks in Advance.

Cheers,

Mohan

mohan93,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

Look at FileInstall in the Help file - that will do what you want. ;)

What you are asking is not terribly clear.

I would have just replied with - Run(@ScriptDir & "abc.exe")

But perhaps Melba23 has the right of it?

The Help file is your friend though, and should be first port of call.

Thanks for replying.

I tried FileInstall function,

FileInstall ( "source", "dest"), Seems this one is used in the case when we want to copy a file from one location to another.

In my case, i dont want to copy abc.exe to anywere on the machine.

Is that possible to hold it inside the Final EXE itself and run.

Regards,

Mohan

mohan,

Yes, it can be done - but it is not very simple and likely to trigger all sorts of HIPS alarms (it certainly does on my machine). But at your stage of AutoIt learning I would suggest you stick with FileInstall - just copy the abc.exe file to the folder in which you have your exe and then delete it when you have run it. :)
