Precompile compile

10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm trying to setup the compile command in autoit to compile some other au3 scripts prior to compiling the primary script.

When I do this bat file:

set autoitcompiler="C:\Autoit - Portable\Beta\Aut2Exe\Aut2exe.exe"
Set Sendemail="C:\Sources\NewTools (autoit based)\Send Emails.au3"

%autoitcompiler% /in %Sendemail%

the bat file will compile, but I'm wondering if I can setup Autoit to precompile without using the .bat file.

I tried this:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Before='"C:\Autoit - Portable\Beta\Aut2Exe\Aut2exe.exe"' /in "%scriptdir%\Send Emails.au3" 

but I get an error message

 

 

'C:Autoit' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

so I tried various different methods for putting quotes around the path but I cannot seem to get it working.

Anyone have suggestions on how to fix this?

....or put it in a path that does not have spaces and troubleshoot something else.

Unfortunately, the pathnames are going to have spaces (set by server admin) so I'm trying to work around their silly settings.

I've tried the following:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Before=C:\Autoit - Portable\Beta\Aut2Exe\Aut2exe.exe /in "%scriptdir%\Send Emails.au3" 

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Before="C:\Autoit - Portable\Beta\Aut2Exe\Aut2exe.exe" /in "%scriptdir%\Send Emails.au3" 

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Before='C:\Autoit - Portable\Beta\Aut2Exe\Aut2exe.exe' /in "%scriptdir%\Send Emails.au3" 

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Before=""C:\Autoit - Portable\Beta\Aut2Exe\Aut2exe.exe"" /in "%scriptdir%\Send Emails.au3" 

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Before='"C:\Autoit - Portable\Beta\Aut2Exe\Aut2exe.exe"' /in "%scriptdir%\Send Emails.au3"

Worst case scenario, I can use the bat script and just it first.

Use @ScriptDir instead of the environment variable and see if that works. Its entirely possible the wrapper program has no idea what %scriptdir% means.

Use @ScriptDir instead of the environment variable and see if that works. Its entirely possible the wrapper program has no idea what %scriptdir% means.

For the compiler, you need to use %scriptdir%

From the compiler:

 

These commands will be executed one at a time as cmdline commands. 

The Commandlines can contain the following variables:
  %in% , %out%, %outx64%, %icon% which will be replaced by the fullpathfilename.
  %scriptdir% same as @ScriptDir and %scriptfile% = filename without extension.
  %fileversion% set to the #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Fileversion directive value.
  %scitedir% will be replaced by the SciTE program directory
Examples:
   copy "%in%" "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\"
   copy "%out%" "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\"
   start aacopy.bat "%out%" "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\"

 

This error is the dead giveaway though:

'C:Autoit' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

Its a problem with the spaces in the file name so it needs to be qualified with quotes, but I have a feeling quotes are being removed by the compiler....

@Boththose

What do you mean by 8.3 names? I've worked with shortnames before but I'm not entirely sure how they work... I know that its usually like the first 5 letters and then ~1 or something.

msgbox(0, '' ,  filegetshortname("C:\Autoit - Portable\Beta\Aut2Exe\Aut2exe.exe"))

see if that string works for your path.

 

*and i have no idea how they work, but they are better than messing with spaces and quotes.

Ok so that does work... Is there a way to call the shortname from within the compile wrapper?

For example:

$AutoitCompiler=FileGetShortName('C:\Autoit - Portable\Beta\Aut2Exe\Aut2exe.exe')
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Before= $AutoitCompiler /in "%scriptdir%\Get Master with survey.au3"

When I used:

C:AUTOIT~1BetaAut2ExeAut2exe.exe

It works perfectly, but I don't want to have to redo the shortname if I migrate the script.
