Hello. I have two questions. 1) I do not know how to navigate to a web page using internet explorer and 2) do you have to have autoit installed in order to run a script complied with autoit (ie .exe)? Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.

Here's my sample code:

run("C:\progra~1\intern~1\iexplore.exe http://somewebpage.com/some/folder%someOther/folder/")

If I remove the http refernece I can get iexplore.exe to run, however I want to navigate to a particular webpage. Thanks again.

Thank you very much for you're help. That works, but now when trying to access this web site I get: error in expression.

Run(@ComSpec & " /c Start http://somewebpage.com/some/folder%20datab.../folder/"& $myString &, "", @SW_HIDE)

Thanks very much for your quick reply Valuater, you have really helped me!

I apologise, $myString is a string variable.

You can ignore the second part of my question, the compile faq I found states that the exe created is standalone. No need for autoit to be installed. Thanks.

ok, I've found a work-a-round. I'm using replace() and simply replacing my variable with another. However, that brings me to a new problem:

run($myVariable &)

fails with: error in regular expression

$myVariable contains the variable of the run(). ie @ComSpec &....the rest of the url.

Things that make you go hmmmmm.......

I'm not really sure If I really understood the problem but what I know ist that the character "&" (Without quotes!) is used to merge any strings or variables.

So If you have two strings ($string1 = "Text1", $string2 = "Text2") and you are writing following line of code:

$Result = $string1 & $string2

...than the result-variable is "Text1Text2".

But if you are writing a line of code like this:

$Result = string1 &

...than there is missing the second expression. Perhaps that is your problem.

Try this instead:

1)

Run(@ComSpec & " /c Start http://somewebpage.com/some/folder%20datab.../folder/" & $myString, "", @SW_HIDE)

2)

run($myVariable)
