how to install an extension in firefox with autoit

4 posts in this topic

hello

i'm using autoit since a few days and i love it.

i'm trying to install adblockplus with autoit.

i did this and it seems to work fine :

RunWait('"C:\Users\himago\Desktop\Autoit\7zip\7za.exe" x "C:\Users\himago\Desktop\Autoit\firefox\adblock_plus-2.6.3-fx+an+sm+tb.xpi" -o"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browser\extensions\{d10d0bf8-f5b5-c8b4-a8b2-2b9879e08c5d}"')

but of course i don't want this :

C:UsershimagoDesktopAutoit

but @scriptdir instead

and i don't want C:Program Files

but @programfilesdir instead

so i tried this :

Local $7za = @ScriptDir & "\7zip\7za.exe"
Local $adblock = @ScriptDir & "\firefox\adblock_plus-2.6.3-fx+an+sm+tb.xpi"
Local $output = @ProgramFilesDir & "\Mozilla Firefox\browser\extensions\{d10d0bf8-f5b5-c8b4-a8b2-2b9879e08c5d}"
RunWait($7za & ' x ' & $adblock & ' -o' & $output)

but it's not working, i'm confused with the ' and the " i don't know how to use it

My mistake, thought ' -o' had to have a space. :)
