Hello, I'm new to AutoIT. I need some help to get started. Here is the task I want to do. 

I have a zip folder on my server. 

I need to download a zip folder (from my server) to C:\Temp

Extract the zip folder to the C:\Temp folder

Run a .bat file as an administrator. 

 

Can you please help me get started?

 

I'm running Windows 7

SciTE-Lite

How do you intend to download the file?

Do you have a standard procedure?

You can use FileCopy() to copy the file from the server to the destination path.

There are a bunch of UDF ( User Defined Functions ) about Zip management.

You can find more about here.

You can try to use RunAs() :)

As a new user of this amazing programming language, I feel to suggest you that the Help file is your best friend...

So, if you are searching something, I'd always start from there :)

 

Best Regards.

I will always thank you for the time you spent for me.
I'm here to ask, and from your response, I'd like to learn.
By my knowledge, I can help someone else, and "that someone" could help in turn another, and so on.

ALWAYS GOOD TO READ:

In case I am violating some pseudo Forum rule, or I am doing something wrong, I want let you know that I'm not doing this on purpose, and for this, I kindly ask you to send me a private message about the "bad content" I posted, in order to edit/remove it, and to not be warned wrongly.
Thanks in advance.
