Autorun File on Paste to the Desktop - (Moved)

Recommended Posts


im looking for a way to execute files automatically when i copy them do the desktop.

Someone knows how this can be solved?

I thought about creating an .exe with winrar and adding an .ini file to the archive to my autoit.exe so that it could run like an autorun.ini on usb sticks but i guess this wont work.


Hope someone got an idea : )

 Not an auto-run example but perhaps a head start idea to incorporate ..

#include <File.au3>

Global $sd = ObjCreate("Scripting.Dictionary"), $array = _FileListToArrayRec(@DesktopDir, "*")  ; array snapshot the list of files in the desktop folder
For $i = 1 To UBound($array) - 1
    $sd.Item($array[$i]) = 1

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")  ; Exit
HotKeySet("^e", "Run_Display")     ; ctrl + e

While 1

Func Run_Display()
    Local $a = _FileListToArrayRec(@DesktopDir, "*"), $sdTmp = ObjCreate("Scripting.Dictionary")
    For $i = 1 To UBound($a) - 1
        If $sd.Exists($a[$i]) Then ContinueLoop
        ;add any new files to $sdTmp array
        $sdTmp.Item($a[$i]) = @DesktopDir & "\" & $a[$i]
    $array = $a         ; update main snapshot
    $a = $sdTmp.Items
    _ArrayDisplay($a)     ; process new files ..
EndFunc   ;==>Run_Display

Func Terminate()
EndFunc   ;==>Terminate

Thanks : )

But im not shure if thats what im looking for.

what i need is that the file autmatically executes when i paste it to another folder.

Just like i copy it from my pc and past it to another pc, in the moment when its copied to the other pc it should execute without that i need to run it on my own

its possible to make it work but its really up to you make it,

Maybe simpler to walk the process through starting with FileOpenDialog() ..

if you already have any code for this and still cant make it work then post it here to get more help

Hey Deye, thanks for your replay,

my code is verry simple,

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $sFilePath1 = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs\elo\clients\hardware", "Code")
Local $sFilePath = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs\elo\clients\hardware", "Ticket")
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Der letzte Wettschein lautet: " & $sFilePath & " $ " & $sFilePath1)
