You cannot.

Now your thread just looks stupid.

So I'm posting the original conted.

Thanks google cache


Sup guys

I have a script in which I want to add a Move File function
The MoveFile autoit function is not what I'm looking for, I'd like to simply have autoit send over the move file process to windows's default API
So here's the windows function I'm trying to use:
I've looked at WinApi.au3 and tried to use its function as a template to write the one I want:
;use windows API to move the folder

Global Const $MOVE_FILE_REPLACE_EXISTSING = 0x00000001
Global Const $MOVE_FILE_COPY_ALLOWED = 0x00000002
Global Const $MOVE_FILE_DELAY_UNTIL_REBOOT = 0x00000004
Global Const $MOVE_FILE_WRITE_THROUGH = 0x00000008
Global Const $MOVE_FILE_CREATE_HARDLINK = 0x00000010
Global Const $MOVE_FILE_FAIL_IF_NOT_TRACKABLE = 0x00000020

#include <array.au3>

$ret = _WinAPI_MoveFile(@ScriptDir & "\Folder1", @ScriptDir & "\Folder2")

ConsoleWrite($ret & @CRLF)

Func _WinAPI_MoveFile($lpExistingFileName, $lpNewFileName)
    $lpProgressRoutine = 0 ;0 = null?
    $lpData = 0 ;0 = null?
    $dwFlags = 0 ;0 = i dunno

    BOOL WINAPI MoveFileWithProgress(
      _In_      LPCTSTR lpExistingFileName,
      _In_opt_  LPCTSTR lpNewFileName,
      _In_opt_  LPPROGRESS_ROUTINE lpProgressRoutine,
      _In_opt_  LPVOID lpData,
      _In_      DWORD dwFlags

    Local $aResult = DllCall("kernel32.dll", _
    "handle", "MoveFileWithProgressA", _
    "str", $lpExistingFileName, _
    "str", $lpNewFileName, _
    "ptr", $lpProgressRoutine, _
    "ptr", $lpData, _


    Return $aResult[0]

Well the file doesn't get moved, and I don't get an error message.
To test it, simply create Folder1 and Folder2 within the folder of the script.
Can you guys figure out where I'm going wrong? I'm not experienced using DllCall...
