Check if AutoIT exe has specific line of code?

5 posts in this topic

Is even possible?  I want to be able to put a special line of code in my executables that each script can read.

hiimjoey11,

You could put the line into the resource table and use either the Resources or ResourcesEx UDF to read it. What do you intend to do with it? :huh:

For example, if i had a folder (let's say C:Execute) and I had a script running every 5 minutes monitoring that folder.  If there is a script in that folder execute it then delete it.  But what if someone puts a bad script in that folder? I dont want to execute it. So I could put a special line of code in my scripts that the monitoring script would only execute if it contained this line of code (or resource).  Is this possible with this resource table?

hiimjoey11,

Not quite what I had imagined from your OP - and so I do not believe that my suggestion above is suitable. :(>

But you could use a #pragma directive to set a file property which you can later read. Compile this small script:

#pragma compile(LegalCopyright, hiimjoey11) ; Set the property
MsgBox(0, "Hi", "Testing Property Reading"
And then run this script to read the property:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

_Read_File_Properties("Your_Exe_File_Path")

Func _Read_File_Properties($sPassed_File_Name)

    Local  $iError = 0

    Local $sDir_Name = StringRegExpReplace($sPassed_File_Name, "(^.*\\)(.*)", "\1")
    Local $sFile_Name = StringRegExpReplace($sPassed_File_Name, "^.*\\", "")

    Local $sDOS_Dir = FileGetShortName($sDir_Name, 1)

    Local $oShellApp = ObjCreate("shell.application")
    If IsObj($oShellApp) Then
        Local $oDir = $oShellApp.NameSpace($sDOS_Dir)
        If IsObj($oDir) Then
            Local $oFile = $oDir.Parsename($sFile_Name)
            If IsObj($oFile) Then
                $sFile_Property = $oDir.GetDetailsOf($oFile, 25) ; Insert number for property required
            Else
                $iError = 3
            EndIf
        Else
            $iError = 2
        EndIf
    Else
        $iError = 1
    EndIf

    If $iError > 0 Then
        Local $sMsg = "Could not read File Properties" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
                $iError & @CRLF & @CRLF & $sPassed_File_Name
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Error", $sMsg)
    Else
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Found", $sFile_Property)
    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>_Read_File_Properties
I get your username returned under Win7 - you may have to adjust the property value for other OSs. ;)

But you do realise this is not much of a security measure? Reading and changing resources is not that difficult. :huh:

PERFECT.

And yes, but it makes it more difficult (the person would have to know I have that exact property...)

Thanks for your help!
