Launch file without save to the disk

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello,

Assuming i have embedded a file inside the script, not as resource but as string, is possible to launch it with the default software without save it to disk? I have read about file mapping but i'm not sure is that then i need:

Local $hFileOpen = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\Test.jpg"); just as example
If $hFileOpen = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "", "An error occurred when reading the file.")
    Exit
EndIf

; Read the contents of the file using the handle returned by FileOpen.
Local $sFileRead = FileRead($hFileOpen)

; Close the handle returned by FileOpen.
FileClose($hFileOpen)

; Display the contents of the file.
;~ MsgBox(0, "", "Contents of the file:" & @CRLF & $sFileRead)

;~ ShellExecute($sFileRead)
;~ Run($sFileRead)

Thanks

1) Can your target software receive its input as a command line or stream? It somewhat depends on what your target software is (I'm assuming it is not something to just display a jpg?)

2) You could create a virtual drive, but if you have privs to do that, you could just write the file to some disk space, which would be far easier.

3) Are you thinking you are concealing your input file? Or do you lack privs to write to a local file space?


Problem solving step 1: Write a simple, self-contained, running, replicator of your problem.
