Truecrypt Script

3 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

first of all Autoit is a great pice of Software!! Thanks for it!

Now to my problem:

Today I tried to create a Truecrypt (http://www.truecrypt.org/) Autoit v3 Script, but I simply did not get it to work. I get the Application to start, than in the next step I get autoit to press the Install button than I receive an error that the installation routine cannot copy a file to the installationdir...

What seems strange to me is that the license is not displayed when I start the installation-file with autoit. When i start it by douple-clicking the exe it is shown on the startup screen....

Here is my script:

$device = envget("Systemdrive")

MsgBox("","",'"' & $device & "\truecrypt\TrueCrypt Setup.exe" & '"')

Run('"' & $device & "\truecrypt\TrueCrypt Setup.exe" & '"')

WinWaitActive("TrueCrypt Setup")

Send("{ENTER]}")

I just dont know whats wrong... Can you pls help me?

Greetings to ya all!

$device = envget("Systemdrive")
MsgBox(0, "", $device & "\truecrypt\TrueCrypt Setup.exe")
Run($device & "\truecrypt\TrueCrypt Setup.exe")
WinWaitActive("TrueCrypt Setup")
Send("{ENTER}")

I don't know if you copied and pasted this from your actual code, but if you did, there was an extra character in the ("{ENTER}"). Additionally, you do not need quotes in front of your variables. I do not know if that will solve your problem (seems like another issue) but it is a start.

Hi SeriaKiller!

Thanks for your fast help. unfortunately your suggestions did not solve the error. For me it seems to be any kind of a permission problem because the installer says he cannot copy the files... I therefore already tried to run the installer with local admin rights but didn help either.

I attached a screenshot of the error.

Do you have any other idea Serial?

While looking through the Truecryp Forum I found the following information:

Truecrypt used to be service based, its now driver based.

On MS windows you need admin rights to install a service or driver.

Thus you need it for TC.

Does this help??
