Need help in changing a compiled script

8 posts in this topic

Hi, I have automated a product installation using Autoit. However i would need to install the product in different virtual machines. I compiled the script to an .exe file and have passed on to my fellow colleagues. They could not edit the file and change the virtual machine name. Is it possible to edit a piece of code in the compiled script without installing Autoit in my colleagues machine?

Cerena,

No. But you could recode the original file to take the virtual machine name as a command line parameter - that way your colleagues could all use the same executable and just adjust the calling line.

Or you could provide an inputbox to allow entering the VM name when the program starts ...

Or if you want complete automation for more than one at a time, just store the names etc in something like an INI file that your EXE references.

@ViciousXUSMC, the macro does work in a VM environment. I took from the OP that his techs would be pointing the script at a remote VM for install, hence needing to have some mechanism for inputting the VM name. If they are running the install script from within the VM then you are correct, they should be able to use the macro.

@JLogan Ok, if that is the case I would go with the InputBox() idea :)
