Recommended Posts

RunWait('"' & @WindowsDir & '\Setup\PostInstall\test-*-test.exe" /S')

Is it possible to run an exe file that has a "random" number in it like above the * would be the random number/letter place, could be like test-123-test.exe or test-52d-test.exe

i cant figure out how to do it, please help thanks in advance:)

Run needs a valid file name, that is not a valid file name and wildcards aren't supported.


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Your best bet would be to do a search of the directory first, to find the file name:

Local $aArray = _FileListToArray(<path>, "*test*.exe", 0, 1)

You can then run the file as needed.
