execution of 2 scripts are they sequental / paralel ?

3 posts in this topic

I have a script that installs a product, and in the script there are some passwords used.

I think of converting the Autoit scripts to executables (aut2exe)

Then i would like to make a cmd batch file

Where i would execute the 1st autoIt executable to install the software

Then after that i would like to launch  another autoit executable
That should delete the first one.

I am new to autoit, so i am not sure how this would execute, and what the best way to this would be.

I am woried that the 1st one is still running and that the batchfile wont wait to finish and thus unable to delete the one that contains passwords, any tips on how to do this ?

There are examples of exes that delete themselves on the forum, which would be a better solution for what you want. This one is the one I know of: >link.

They usually work by writing a temporary batch file before closing, which waits for a little bit and then deletes it.

I suggest to use Guinness' >_SelfDelete function.
