Quotes issue in Run()


Go to solution Solved by BrewManNH,

I'm having an issue running the code below.

What I want is for @ScriptFullPath to use AutoIt3ExecuteScript, run a file that is in @AppDataDir with the path having spaces and add a parameter at the end, it seems to work with @AutoitExe before compiling but when I use it compiled and change to @ScriptFullPath it gives me an error and part of the dir is missing:


Can someone help with the quotes? I seem to always mix them up :/

Run(@ScriptFullPath & ' /AutoIt3ExecuteScript "' & ' "' & @AppDataDir & "\New Folder\test.a3x" & " " & "param1", "",@SW_HIDE)

Here's how I'd do it.

;~ Run(@ScriptFullPath & ' /AutoIt3ExecuteScript "' & ' "' & @AppDataDir & "\New Folder\test.a3x" & " " & "param1", "",@SW_HIDE)
ConsoleWrite('"' & @ScriptFullPath & '" /AutoIt3ExecuteScript  "'  &  @AppDataDir & '\New Folder\test.a3x" param1' & @CRLF)

Once you see that the quotes are in the right place, change the ConsoleWrite to Run, and remove the "& @CRLF", and add in the rest of the run command needed.

And also NEVER EVER use @SW_HIDE, or /c with @ComSpec, until you have the script running correctly, after you know the command works, THEN you can start hiding things. Otherwise you will never know why if's not working.

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.
