Including a File with Script

Recommended Posts


I am trying to save a config file for a program overtop of the default config file. The default config file is stored @UserProfileDir & "My Documentsxx.config.

The catch... This new config file i have is stored on my pc, I want to save this on many remote pc's that do not have access to my pc. And i'd rather not copy the config file and the script to each pc, I would just like to copy the script and let it run. Is there a way to include it in the script so when i compile it, i wont need to keep the new config file everywhere the script goes?

I tried  # <include <Filepathxx.config> just returned an error.

I know how to write the code to replace the existing config with the new config... that is if the new config was stored in the same location on all the pcs, but sadly it does not exist on all the pcs. Just trying to save some time from doing the manual way.

Take a look at FileInstall in the help file - that should do the trick. ;)

Doesn't seem to be working

FileInstall("C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\xx.config", "C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Test\ConfigFolder",1)

Just testing it locally, the file is on my desktop and would like to overwrite the existing xx.config file in my docstestconfigfolder

Do I have something wrong here?

You forgot the trailing backslash on the destination path.  Try this.

FileInstall("C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\xx.config", "C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Test\ConfigFolder\", 1)
