Load program from CMD

I have a .ini file that holds my path for our mapping software. I can't seem to get the CMD function to read the file path. I removed everything but the file path but it doesn't work.

[ArcGIS Desktop]
Path=C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\ESRI\Desktop10.1\Launcher.exe

Local Const $sFilePath = @ScriptDir & "\Mapping\Path\ " & "Path" & ".ini"
    Local $sFilewrite = IniWrite($sFilePath, "ArcGIS Desktop", "Path=", "C:\Users\aa2zz6\AppData\Local\ESRI\Desktop10.1\Launcher.exe")
    
    Start()
    Func Start()
    $MyCommand = $sFilewrite
    Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & $MyCommand, @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)
    EndFunc   ;==>Start

Credit to MHz for creating the CMD part.

Creating the .ini file

;Create a constant variable in Local scope of the filepath that will be read/written to.
    Local Const $sFilePath = @ScriptDir & "\Mapping\" & "Config.ini"


    Local $sFilewrite = 'IGNORE_ERRORS=' & IniWrite($sFilePath, "settings", 'IGNORE_ERRORS', 1 &  @CRLF & 'Installer='&  $out)

$out is generated by another CMD process script that scans the hard drive in order to find the mapping software. But if you know the path won't change I would write it in like below.

;Create a constant variable in Local scope of the filepath that will be read/written to.
    Local Const $sFilePath = @ScriptDir & "\Mapping\" & "Config.ini"


    Local $sFilewrite = 'IGNORE_ERRORS=' & IniWrite($sFilePath, "settings", 'IGNORE_ERRORS', 1 &  @CRLF & 'Installer=' &  "C:\Users\aa2zz6\AppData\Local\ESRI\Desktop10.1\ArcGIS Desktop.exe")

.ini file will look like

[settings]
IGNORE_ERRORS=1
Installer=C:\Users\aa2zz6\AppData\Local\ESRI\Desktop10.1\ArcGIS Desktop.exe

Reading file path to CMD

Global $Ignore, $Ini, $Installer, $Pid

; Ini Settings file
$Ini = @ScriptDir & "\Mapping\" & "Config.ini""
; Read Ini Setting: IGNORE_ERRORS=0 or IGNORE_ERRORS=1
$Ignore = 'IGNORE_ERRORS=' & IniRead($Ini, "Settings", "IGNORE_ERRORS", 0)
; Read Ini Setting: Installer to run later
$Installer = IniRead($Ini, "Settings", "Installer", "")

; If $Installer is something and $Installer exists, then run it.
If $Installer And FileExists($Installer) Then
    $Pid = Run('"' & @ComSpec & '" /c "' & $Installer & '" /v "' & $Ignore & '"', @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE)
    ; Check if @error is set. (Use of Exit is optional as used for example)
    If @error Then Exit 1
    ; Wait for process to close
    ProcessWaitClose($Pid)
Else
    ; Act on condition failure of $Installer
    If Not $Installer Then Exit 2
    If Not FileExists($Installer) Then Exit 3
EndIf

      Hello Everyone! 
      I'm attempting to create a checklist app that performs other functions. For performance, I would like to check the box, then have the button to the right enabled. After that button is pressed, the second checkbox is enabled, and ready to be checked, allowing the second button to be pressed. After the second button is pressed, the completion/exit button is enabled/shown. I have my code that currently creates the GUI, creates the checkbox, but when you check it it enables the button and the next checkbox. Can't seem to figure out a Case for GUISetOnEvent. Any assistance would be appreciated!
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> ; Below is the GUI interface _DeploymentProcess() Func _DeploymentProcess() $aStep1 = GUICreate("Deployment Process", 475, 345, 500, 175) $CBcStep1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("1. Step 01.", 15, 25, 300, 25) $BTNS1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Email 01", 365, 25, 90, 20) $CBcStep2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("2. Step 02.", 15, 50, 300, 25) $BTNS2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Email 02", 365, 50, 90, 20) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep2, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetState($BTNS1, $GUI_DISABLE) $CBcStep3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hurray! You're Complete!", 85, 276, 300, 60) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_SHOW) ; Below are the button and checkbox enables/disables. GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE GUIDelete($aStep1) Return ; Step 1 Case $CBcStep1 If GUICtrlRead($CBcStep1) = $GUI_CHECKED Then GUICtrlSetState($BTNS1, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep2, $GUI_ENABLE) Else GUICtrlSetState($BTNS1, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep2, $GUI_DISABLE) EndIf ; Step 2 Case $CBcStep2 If GUICtrlRead($CBcStep2) = $GUI_CHECKED Then GUICtrlSetState($BTNS2, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_ENABLE) Else GUICtrlSetState($BTNS2, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_DISABLE) EndIf Case $CBcStep3 If GUICtrlRead($CBcStep2) = $GUI_CHECKED Then GUICtrlSetState($BTNS10, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_SHOW) Else GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE) EndIf Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $CBcStep3 #comments-end Exit EndSwitch WEnd EndFunc

      Hi everyone,

      Is there a way to determine whether the script that is running, is already running, without using;
       
      If WinExists ?

      Or is there a way to use "If WinExists" to determine the script itself?

      The reason I am asking this is because if I want someone to run the .Exe I have and they rename it to whatever they want, how could I then determine in the script to check if there's already an .Exe open, or the script itself is already open?

      Should I use Class, or how do I achieve this?

      Thanks in advance.

      Id like to build a little helpertool for my boss in office but i dont know how to sart it.
      thats no complicated task. im working for an insurancecenter and have to search the customers in different orders and different tags.
      due to my boss is old and not really commen with pc he saves the customers without system.
      eg, customer andreas statham got an insurenca for his car then i got to search for
      andreas statham car, andreas car statham, car andreas statham, statham andreas car, statham car andreas, car statham andreass etc to find all the files from this customer in the harddrive.
      some customers also are fmiliarnamed in one file like andreas statam and monika rog are married an both got a carinsurance then i got to earch for
      andreas statham monika rog car, andreas statham monika car rog,.... this can take real long to find the right customer if i do it from hand.
      how can i realise this someone in here got an excamlple script or has any sugestion?

      Ok so im using this program. clarify for school. I would like to have a program that takes every word i type in microsoft word and searches on it in claryfi. is this possible. I would like to have the program not stopping me from typing more after that word. Like when i type a word it auto search it on clarify without making me stop typing and if i want to change i can do that and if im fine that word i can just keep typing and it will search after the next word.

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.
