Unzip with bat and begin launch of Install-help please

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I have run into a bit of trouble with a project that I am working on. I currently have an autoit file calling a  java script to  go out and retrieve the latest install of X from an FTP Server. It works great! Well the problem I am running into now is since the file I grab is zipped I have to unzip so then I can run the installation for X. I thought I had found a way using 7-zip but I keep getting an error even if I try to run the installation myself saying "Error: Error loading XML file.. This application will now close." If I extract the files using windows explorer I am able to install the program. 

I have my autoit file calling this .bat file and as a result I am unable to load from the unzipped folder due to this error loading XML file.

cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\7-zip"
7z e "C:\Users\NTS User\Documents\AutoInstall\XInstall.zip" -o"C:\Users\NTS User\Desktop\Autoit\X" -y

 

Am I missing something with this? If anyone could provide insight I would deeply appreciate it. Thanks again!

P.S. If I forgot to include anything just let me know!

There is a Zip.UDF that you can use, but I like this method even better if your on Win 7/8/10

$objShell5 = ObjCreate("Shell.Application")
$FilesInZip5 = $objShell5.NameSpace($sZip).items
$objShell5.NameSpace($sMaps).CopyHere($FilesInZip5,0x4)

$sZip is the path to the zip file, and $sMaps is the path to extract.

I've made several attempts to decipher how to use this method, but my script always aborts with the failure shown below.

I know almost nothing about using objects in Au3.  Can someone suggest a way to troubleshoot this simple call?  I'm running under Win7 Pro.

Thanks for any help.

      Hi, 
      This is my very first post in this forum and am also new with Autoit programming so be easy on me.
      Below is the code that I am trying to get the index of the item selected. No problem getting the text.
      Case $listEdition   ; handle of the list             local $index=0             $item=GUICTRLRead($listEdition)    ; This will return the text in the list             ; ==============   The loop below always fails  ==================             ; Meaning _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always return FALSE. WHY ???????              For $i = 0 To $editionArray[0] - 1   ; The content of the list in an array where editionArray[0] contains total count of items                 If _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) Then                     $index = $i                     exitloop                 EndIf              Next              ;===================================================             ConsoleWrite( "Select Edition:     " & $item & "  index: " & $index & @CR) ....... Please look at the comments in the code & the pix attached.
      _GUICtrlListView_GetItemSelected($listEdition, $i) always returns FALSE.
      Another problem is on the list. It also populate  the total count of items from the Array. How can I skip this item from populating to the list ?.
      Please advise and thanks

      Hi, I am using excel as input media for my program. The excel file (i tried with .xls, .xlsx and .xlsm format) has inputs which the autoit script reads during the run and performs few calculations. Some times (not always), after the run, when i try to open the excel file manually, the file doesnt open at all in excel. see the screenshot attached. However, if the execute the autoit script, the scripts still reads the existing data from that excel and performs the calcs. I copied the excel file to another computer and there too, it doesnt open.  So, after this, i cannot edit the excel forever (if i need to change any inputs). It is only this particular file that got affected. other excel files works normal.  What could be the problem here.  please help as this is a new challenge for me during my program development.

      Hi everyone!

      I'm using AutoIt for several years now and I really get the hang of it!
      I'm quite the curious OCD perfectionist kind of guy, so I can't help wondering..
      what would be the best way to program stuff for the compiler / interpreter / scripting engine?
      We're talking about the inner workings of the AutoIt's core here, and how to give it as less friction as possible but also take care of the machine running the script.
      For example,
      Imagine a script where we would constantly have to assign a Boolean value to a variable:
      ; A: local $bool = false $bool = true $bool = true $bool = false ; B: local $bool = false check(true) check(true) check(false) func check($b) if $bool = $b then return $bool = $b endfunc In this case, would it be better to just overwrite (A) the variable or first check if we really need to (B)?
      What would be best for the computers memory if it had to do this for a year non stop?
      Another example, imagine you're writing a function with an if statement.
      If you would look under the hood of AutoIt, what would be the best way to give your computer as less work / code nesting stack filling as possible:
      ; A: func decide($b_Input) if $b_Input then ;do something else ;do something else endif endfunc ; B: func decide($b_Input) if $b_Input then ;do something return endif ;do something else endfunc Last one for now:
      ; A: while 1 ; do stuff wend ; B: while true ; do stuff wend Isn't AutoIt taking an extra step in converting 1 to a Boolean in example (A)?
      Or is it the other way around and does the (B) way make AutoIt first convert a keyword (true or false) to a numerical value (0 or 1).
      I think this kinda detail stuff is quite interesting, makes me wonder how AutoIt converts and runs our code.
      What are your opinions on this topic?
      Any coders who know more about the inner workings of AutoIt?
      Any people like me who ask themselves similar questions (with examples)?

      Let me know! 😉
