Need to find the path of exe

Recommended Posts

I have an exe with name "erwin Data Modeler r9.7 (32-bit)_2332.exe"

 

THe lat 4 digits 2332 may vary and also the version number r9.7 also might vary.

So, how to write a generic expression so that the exe can be picked from the current directory {with any version (9.7 or anything) and any build number (2332 or anything)}

 

Thanks in Advance

Use:
StringInStr ( "string", "substring" [, casesense = 0 [, occurrence = 1 [, start = 1 [, count]]]] )
 

Kind Regards, Starf0x

But this we can find only one substring right.But the 32 number is fixed above.

I forgot to mention above, if it is 64 instead of 32 then the exe should not be picked.

Think about this, you said the last digits are different the rest is the same: " erwin Data Modeler"
So do a check to see if that piece of text exists, and then you have the filename.

Got it, Thanks @Starf0x

Func GetFileList($dir)
    ; List all the files and folders in the desktop directory using the default parameters.
    Local $aFileList = _FileListToArray($dir, "*")
    If @error = 1 Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Path was invalid.")
        Exit
    EndIf
    If @error = 4 Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "No file(s) were found.")
        Exit
    EndIf
    ; Display the results returned by _FileListToArray.
    ;_ArrayDisplay($aFileList, "$aFileList")

    For $vElement In $aFileList
        if StringInStr($vElement, "erwin Data Modeler")>0 and StringInStr($vElement, "32-bit")>0 Then
            return $vElement
        EndIf
    Next
    return "0"

EndFunc   ;==>Example

EX: Flash Player 24.0.0.194.exe

Local $search = FileFindFirstFile("Flash Player*.exe")
If $search = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "No files/directories matched the search pattern")
    Exit
Else
    Local $file = FileFindNextFile($search)
    $Exe = @ScriptDir & '\' & $file
    ShellExecuteWait($Exe, '-install')
    MsgBox(64, 'FlashPlayer', 'Complete!')
EndIf

This is what i use to install flash player, only the numbers after this change, so this works every time.

I guess for you you could use
 

FileFindFirstFile("erwin Data Modeler*.exe")

StringInStr($vElement, "32-bit")>0 Then

      Hi there,
      maybe someone can help me.
      If automated a script that should xcopy from various paths (all within C:\*\...) to a external Disk (HDD). (Backup data of users who get new pcs win10)
      I tried it several times with windows 10 home/pro any clients and never got any failure. (after the testing was done)
      But when i tried to run it shortly ago on a windows 7  pro x64 client, the script started (as i saw in taskmanagr.exe) but i didn't performed any of the actions when i came down to the xcopy part.
      (in the systemtray, it showd the scipt to start, but it was marked as "paused" and i couldn't stop this. No plan why)
       i inserted/attached the script down here.
      Does anyone know why? any ideas?backup-scrp.au3
      PS:  the tray debug line just added by today (i re-try it tomorrow when i've set up another win7 client to test with)
      PPS: i know my coding-style isn't very optimized

      CronToTime.au3 UDF converts a Unix Cron expression into a DateTime string.
      On Unix systems a Cron expression made of five fields separated by blanks/tabs followed by a shell command to execute.

      e.g. 15-30 2,3,4,5 29 1-12 0-6 reboot
      +------------- minute (0 - 59)
      ¦ +------------- hour (0 - 23)
      ¦ ¦ +------------- day of month (1 - 31)
      ¦ ¦ ¦ +------------- month (1 - 12)
      ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ +------------- day of week (0 - 6) (Sunday to Saturday, 7 is also Sunday)
      ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ +------------- some shell command
      ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦
      ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦
      * * * * * reboot
      (In this UDF the 6th field has no meaning and no influence on the result).
      For more information see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cron

      Finds the next event of the specified Cron expression, starting from current UTC/GMT.
      _pce_findNextTimeUTC($sCronExp [, $bForwardSearch = True [, $minutesOffset = 0]]])
      Finds the next event of the specified Cron expression. If $sDateTime is not set, local time will be used.
      _pce_findNextTime($sCronExp [, $bForwardSearch = True [, $sDateTime = "" [, $minutesOffset = 0]]])
      Convert names in usable Cron expression values. e.g. "15-30 2,3,4,5 29 July-December Mo-Su" to "15-30 2,3,4,5 29 7-12 1-7"
      _pce_convertNames( $sCronExp )

      Hey Everyone, I haven't been here in a while and recently picked up my old project. Still an FNG!
      To the point: I want to be able to push the button and either play an mp3, open a file, or open an exe program (all with the same button). The problem is that I don't know how to code for that at "case 1"
              Case 1                                                                                                                                             
                  Local $sRead = IniRead("config.ini", "Config", "One", "Default")                                
                  SoundPlay($sRead, @HotKeyPressed)                                                                     <-------------------------------
                  Run($sRead, @HotKeyPressed)                                                                                 <------------------------------- This 'Run' doesn't work even by itself!
      See code below for layout. If you need more information I will attach more code or answer any questions. Any help is greatly appreciated.
       
      Much Respect,
      Pike

      Hey All,
      Yes, this is an odd request. 
      But is there a way to bulk up the size of the compiled program? 
      I know many want to reduce it's size, but I want to increase it.
      What methods do you suggest?

      Is it possible to compile script without any icon resources included?
      When I make exe it uses default system icon of current OS even if I compile as console application.
      On other versions of Windows it looks a little strange

       
      Update:
      It seems that the only way is remove icons from exe after compilation using resource editors like ResHacker.

       
      another bad solution:
      Using corrupted 35 bytes icon file. Windows can't load it and shows default system icon.
      #pragma compile(Icon, broken.ico) broken.ico
