Problem with FileInstall()

4 posts in this topic

Don't know if anything I did wrong with FileInstall() function ???

I Included a file that from Windows 2000 resource kit, netdom.exe in my script using this expression

FileInstall("netdom.exe",@ScriptDir,1)

As my netdom.exe placed with the script file when compile, I copy the execute on C: then it can extract the netdom.exe for me, but if I place it in some directory say C:\Download, it can't extract the netdom.exe for me, I tried the syntax like this.

$result=FileInstall("netdom.exe",@ScriptDir,1)

MsgBox(0,$result,$result)

And it print me a success return but with no file exist, how come ???

Fileinstall act as a filecopy when not compiled.

so the forcing to overwrite just destroy the file. It was a bug in filecopy I assume there is the same error in fileinstall. no ptroblem if you compile your script the file will be placed in the @scriptdir. B)

But the problem I encountered is, I compiled the script, when the @ScriprDir is C: it works, it fail whereever the destination it is, I've already checked the permissions and attribute is valid.B)

Try using a trailing backslash on the destination as the helpfile mentions.
