AutoIt - using 7z cmd adds parent folder to archive

Recommended Posts

Hello world! I'm trying to add to an archive with this AutoIt code:

$CompressPath = c:\directory\subdirectory\path_to_files

$CmdChange = "cd " & $CompressPath
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CmdChange, "", @SW_HIDE)

$pathZIP = c:\path_to_archive
$filename = archive_name.zip

$CmdCompress = "7z a " & $pathZIP & "\" & $filename & " .\* -r"
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CmdCompress, "", @SW_HIDE)

This actually adds all of c:\directory to the archive, instead of just the contents of c:\directory\subdirectory\path_to_files, like it 'should'.

However, when I try this code in cmd directly, it works correctly, meaning only the contents of c:\directory\subdirectory\path_to_files are added to the archive, and nothing else:

cd c:\directory\subdirectory\path_to_files
7z a c:\path_to_archive\archive_name.zip .\* -r

Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?

Try:

The reason yours fails is that your running two separate cmd processes, you need to combine them like below (untested):

Global $sCompressPath = "c:\directory\subdirectory\path_to_files"
Global $sZipPath = "c:\path_to_archive"
Global $sZipName = "archive_name.zip"
$CmdChange = RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c cd " & $sCompressPath & "&&7z a " & $sZipPath & "\" & $sZipName & " .\* -r", "", @SW_HIDE)
