Making a program run based on file existing

3 posts in this topic

Hello i am having some issues with this working. I am trying to run this to see if the file is located in program files or on 64bit program files x86 and then run the program. Here is what i have so far:

If FileExists "%ProgramFiles%\Common Files\SMART Technologies\SMART Product Update\activationwizard.exe"
   (Then $vPPATH="%PROGRAMFILES(x86)%")

Run "($vPPATH)\Common Files\SMART Technologies\SMART Product Update\activationwizard.exe"

I know this is probably pretty basic but I am new here and cannot get this variable to work properly. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Run ($vPPATH & "\Common Files\SMART Technologies\SMART Product Update\activationwizard.exe")

You must read Basic of AutoIt

There are more things wrong with that code:

  • Brackets missing for FileExists function.
  • Environment variables won't be resolved unless specified
  • EndIf is missing.

Start with opening the helpfile and checking syntax. ;)
