Unable to start WinZip installer

Recommended Posts

dragan011

I'm learning AutoIt and studying WinZip example.

Tutorial refers to an older version of Winzip which I could not find. I dowloaded the latest at present winzip22_downwz.exe.

I put the exe file in the same folder as my script which contains following command:

Run('winzip22_downwz.exe')

However when I run the script nothing happens. 

When I double-click or even start the same exe file from the command line it starts ok.

What could be the reason?

Thanks

Try including the full path and file name of the file.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

I tried full path, did not work.

Try to put #RequireAdmin at the top of your script

This helped :)

The only issue is I need to run script as administrator in that case, but the Winzip installer does start.

"Did not work" doesn't help us much. Please post the SciTE output pane so we can see the error you're seeing.

#RequireAdmin
 Run('winzip22_downwz.exe')

this code is ok for me, you must have web access to download the full installer.
