Run application that validates against a licence file before opening

2 posts in this topic

A newbie to AutoIt, however have exhausted how I can successfully run an exe file that when clicked requires to verify against a license library file that is stored in a different folder than the exe file. I have tried RunAsSet, use Environment var. however with no luck.

The only way for me to run the exe file successfully is to copy the library file into the same location as the exe file, however do not want to do this as it invalidates my testing

Your help is welcomed

Seems like a working directory issue. You may need to specify a working directory parameter in the Run() or use FileChangeDir() to set a permanent change of working directory.

If this executable has a shortcut then it may have the working directory shown in the shortcuts properties.
