Help with read file name and write it to text file in specific line.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am trying to create a custom script which would let me find out the date of my backup creation in a secure zone/backup capsule and then show me this date when I boot to special recovery interface.

As autoit is not able to read the file creation properties from an unmounted drive I've decided to use a workaround. Using script of my backup software I am able to read the properties and create a dummy file which has the date name.

Then autoit needs to read the name of that file and write it to a txt.ini file in specific section. This ini file then shows in UI interface the buttons and hints to a small graphic interface called runner.exe

But this does not work for me whatever I try. Can someone please shed some light on this? Where am I making a mistake?

Here is my script:

#include <File.au3>
#include <Date.au3>

_FileCreate(@ScriptDir & "\program\date.999")
ShellExecuteWait(@ScriptDir & "\program\scripts.exe", " -Wno --multiple a.psl", "", "", @SW_HIDE)

$filesearch = FileFindFirstFile ( "*.999" )
$dateraw = StringTrimRight(FileFindNextFile($filesearch), 4)
$LB_Date = StringLeft($dateraw, 2) & "." & StringMid($dateraw, 3, 2)& "." & StringRight($dateraw, 4)
$LB_Date2 = StringRight($dateraw, 4) & "/" & StringMid($dateraw, 3, 2)& "/" & StringLeft($dateraw, 2)
$LB_days = _DateDiff("d",$LB_Date2 & " 00:00:00", _NowCalc())

$PSR_Menu = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\menu\runner.ini", "Menu_0", "Name_2","")
$PSR_Hint = IniRead(@ScriptDir & "\menu\runner.ini", "Menu_0", "Hint_2","")
IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\menu\runner.ini", "Menu_0", "Name_2",$PSR_Menu & " (" & $LB_days & ") days")
IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\menu\runner.ini", "Menu_0", "Hint_2",$PSR_Hint & " " & $LB_Date )
;~ ConsoleWrite(@ScriptDir & "\menu\runner.exe" & @CRlf)
ShellExecute(@ScriptDir & "\menu\runner.exe")

And the ini file runner.ini has the following lines:



Name_1=Restore Original State
Hint_1=All custom setting will be overwritten

Name_2=Create or update user Backup
Hint_2=The user backup will be updated. If no backup was done yet, it will be created

How do I make the script write the Hint_2 taking the name of .999 file?
