A script to download and install the latest stable version of AutoIt

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if anyone has a script that checks to see if AutoIt is installed.  If it isn't I would like it  to download and install the latest stable version of AutoIt & SciTE.

I realize this would have to run compiled.

Thank you,

Docfxit

AutoUpdateIt.au3  just displays a GUI showing what the current version that is installed is and what the latest version that is available.

I'm looking for a script that will determine if the latest stable version is currently installed.  If AutoIT isn't installed or it's not the latest version I would like the script to download and install AutoIt and  SciTE silently.  I'm trying to prepare a remote PC to run AutoIT scripts to install other software silently.

Thanks,

Docfxit

Hello I think you can compile AutoUpdateIt.au3 and call it with the following parameters. 

AutoUpdateIt.exe /release /silent

 

Saludos

I figure that is not "a" remote PC, but to run the Scite/AutoIt IDE anywhere, and if my guts are right you may want to create a portable  "Scite/AutoIt IDE" environment.
Now, getting the latest and greatest is not a very good idea, as it may break your existing scripts due to the evolution of the language and UDFs,

You don't need to download the complete package and install if all you want to do is run scripts. All you'd need is the AutoIt3.exe program or even just a compiled script. However, the executable must have been compiled with the #pragma compile(AutoItExecuteAllowed, True) directive.


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.

Back up and restore Windows user files _Array.au3 - Modified array functions that include support for 2D arrays.  -  ColorChooser - An add-on for SciTE that pops up a color dialog so you can select and paste a color code into a script.  -  Customizable Splashscreen GUI w/Progress Bar - Create a custom "splash screen" GUI with a progress bar and custom label.  -  _FileGetProperty - Retrieve the properties of a file  -  SciTE Toolbar - A toolbar demo for use with the SciTE editor  -  GUIRegisterMsg demo - Demo script to show how to use the Windows messages to interact with controls and your GUI.  -   Latin Square password generator
