Script Compiler Question

11 posts in this topic

Hi!

since most ppl have less problems with an exe, I'm converting my Scripts with Aut2Exe to an executable.

Now I have quite a problem, since Aut2Exe seems to compress the Scripts and Stuff with UPX ( as far as I noticed ).

When I now remove the UPX compression, the exe wont run anymore :)

I have my own exe-packer and want to use it, since it also got a nice protection!

Is there any way to turn the compression completely off?

I would love to have a simple Tool, which just merges the exe with the script, without any protection and stuff... somethink like a runtime :huh2:

Anyway, I must say I just love AutoIt! :D

kind regards,

Ani-chan

Have you seen Helge's clever trick?

HTH

Well the problem is that even if UPX wasn't used (which is only used for compressing the exe stub, Autoit uses its own compression/encryption for the actual script) then you wouldn't be able to compress it afterwards anyway as it would destroy the format of the exe that AutoIt understands.

@trids

Does this make a executable? :D

@Jon

I thought so, but wouldn't it be possible to create that tool without the compression/protection?

Yes .. well, the source gets included into the exe and then if you launch the exe with the /source <password> switches, the source gets restored .. in all it's original indented and commented glory ...

:D

.. sorry - i like this so much i got carried away a little :huh2:

Ani-chan,

Aut2Exe converts your script to an executable that can be run on any PC and requires no AutoIT be installed. It doesn't need to be uncompressed or decrypted by anything; and like Trids said... you can always expand it back to the origional code if you know the passphrase.
