Aut2exe.exe ended errors when compiling with large fileinstall


Recommended Posts

I get the "Unable to add resources" error related to AppData\Local\AutoIt v3\Aut2Exe when compiling with a large FileInstall of a 1.5GB file.  Is there a size limit I need to be aware of?  I've also disabled or removed Trend from three different machines and had the same results.  I've had issues like this in the past but have compiled after the Aut2Exe folder was excluded in AV.  That doesn't seem to be the problem this time around.  If I comment out the FileInstall the script compiles successfully.

I regularly compile large AutoIt applications with lots of files totalling around 25 Mb for the compiled exe. One cause may be your anti virus program trying to check you newly compiled application before AutoIt has finished including all the files needed for fileinstall.

I would never make a compiled script with a 1.5gb "attachment"!
What I have done is the past is zip up 1.5Gb file and distribute that together with the installer script to all PC's for a software upgrade.The advantage of that approach was that I could update the script logic without have to distribute the large installer file again.

Why do you want to include this size file in the actual compiled script?

Bowmore... I've already exhausted AV as the cause by having the folder excluded and also testing on a machine with no AV.

Jos... Management wanted one installer (O365) for low bandwidth locations in South America.  I was initially able to compile with large fileinstalls but have had this error crop up more recently.  As it turns out we have already started to go in the direction you did by separating the large fileinstall from the main script.  they just have to place the file in the right spot for the script to find it.

Thanks for the input guys!

      Hi all,
      I have compiled a script to exe (using aut2exe) and delivered it to another machine, which does not have AutoIt installed. There, it does not run, but tells me that an undefined variable is used.
      I assume that the files referred to by #include are not embedded in the exe.
      How can I make sure the included files are available, when I deploy the exe to another machine?
      Thanks in advance for your helpful hints!

      Hi,
      Part of my standard template for a new project is including the lines:
          #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Au3Stripper=y ;Run Au3Stripper before compilation (Default=n)
          #Au3Stripper_Parameters=/mo ;     Use the parameters as listed above
      I extensively use bookmarks to jump back and forth between sections of code while debugging and I am experiencing an annoyance that I'm hoping someone could steer me towards a "better" solution.
      The problem is when I go to compile code, all of my bookmarks get deleted.
      I have determined that if I comment out the line    #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Au3Stripper then the issue no longer happens and my bookmarks remain.
      Are there some other properties I could be setting somewhere to keep the line in place yet not destroy my bookmarks on every compile?
      Thanks

      What i'm trying to achieve is to bundle a few folders within the executable script and from what I've read it can be done with:
      #include <FileConstants.au3> FileInstall(src, dest, $FC_OVERWRITE) I know that src must be a literal string and cant be a variable or macro. However, I also learned that I cant just install a folder but there is a workaround that uses 7zip or winrar so that FileInstall extracts the folder to the desired location (e.g. to dest) so I wend and tried both variants: 
      I zipped a single folder just for testing. I winrared a single folder just for testing. Keep in mind that both the .zip and .rar are the same folder with the same content.
      The problem I ran into is that FileInstall simply moves the .rar or .zip folder to the desired location but it doesn't extract it!
      #RequreAdmin #include <FileConstants.au3> Func installESPLibraries() Local Const $sLibrariesPath = @LocalAppDataDir & "\Arduino15\packages\esp32\hardware\esp32\1.0.4\libraries" FileInstall("esp-libraries\ESP32-ADXL345.rar", $sLibrariesPath & "\", $FC_OVERWRITE) EndFunc installESPLibraries() The result I'm left with is that ESP32-ADXL345.rar just gets moved to $sLibrariesPath (so it does kinda work). The result I want is to have ESP32-ADXL345.rar extracted to the same location so that I have only a folder with the name ESP32-ADXL345 without any winrar files. Is there a way to achieve such a thing ? (because i'm sure there is).
      NOTE: I already did search the forum for such a solution:
      how to use fileinstall want to bundle my exe foldersfiles embedding images folders in exe However, They all show practical examples with files and none with folders (the third link mentions folders but has no examples) so I am at a loss as to how it should be done.
       
      EDIT:
      Thanks to @Musashi and @Nine for pointing out what I was missing! Also, I would like to add my solution:
      #RequreAdmin #include <FileConstants.au3> ; Create a local constant string to hold a path to the folder where we will be installing the libraries Local Const $sLibrariesPath = @LocalAppDataDir & "\Arduino15\packages\esp32\hardware\esp32\1.0.4\libraries\" ; Unpack libraries.rar to the path we defined FileInstall("libraries.rar", $sLibrariesPath, $FC_OVERWRITE) ; Run the batch script to extract libraries.rar at the path we defined RunWait("unrar.bat " & $sLibrariesPath & " libraries.rar", "", @SW_HIDE) ; Deletes libraries.rar FileDelete($sLibrariesPath & "libraries.rar") I attached the .bat file I wrote to make it work. The reasoning for this solution is to show how its done cleanly with .rar files as I didn't see anyone do it this way. Hope it helps people in the future!
