Delete on exit

4 posts in this topic

Is there a way to get AutoIt to delete its self on exit?

I have a complied script that I would like to auto delete its self when a button is pressed, or the script finishes execution.

Func SuiCide()
    $SC_File = @TEMPDIR & "\suicide.bat"
    FileDelete($SC_File)
    $SC_batch = 'loop:' & @CRLF & 'del "' & @SCRIPTFULLPATH & '"'  & @CRLF & _
         'ping -n 1 -w 250 zxywqxz_q' & @CRLF & 'if exist "' & @SCRIPTFULLPATH & _
        '" goto loop' & @CRLF & 'del suicide.bat' & @CRLF

    FileWrite($SC_File,$SC_batch)
    Run($SC_File,@TEMPDIR,@SW_HIDE) 
    Exit
EndFunc

Another 1 with a ping to nul. Hehe, does not have a catchy name like Valuater's version.

Func _SelfDelete($iDelay = 0)
    Local $sCmdFile
    FileDelete(@TempDir & "\scratch.bat")
    $sCmdFile = 'ping -n ' & $iDelay & '127.0.0.1 > nul' & @CRLF _
            & ':loop' & @CRLF _
            & 'del "' & @ScriptFullPath & '"' & @CRLF _
            & 'if exist "' & @ScriptFullPath & '" goto loop' & @CRLF _
            & 'del ' & @TempDir & '\scratch.bat'
    FileWrite(@TempDir & "\scratch.bat", $sCmdFile)
    Run(@TempDir & "\scratch.bat", @TempDir, @SW_HIDE)
EndFunc
