Script wont run in .bat file

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Help! This is my very first mini-script. And it works fine if I run it, it works fine if I compile it and run it. But when I run the compiled file from a batch (.bat) file it just hangs. It does not open 'UninstallThunderbird'

When I do this manually, the script continues.

What am I doing wrong? :lmao:

#include "include\file.au3"

If FileExists("c:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe") Then

Run ( 'UninstallThunderbird.exe' )

WinWait ( "Mozilla Thunderbird Uninstaller" )

ControlClick ( "Mozilla Thunderbird Uninstaller", "", "&Yes" )

EndIf

When you Run a program, you usually need to put the complete path. If UninstallThunderbird is in the Mozilla Thunderbird folder, then you probably need to say

Run("c:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\UninstallThunderbird.exe")

Or you could say

FileChangeDir("c:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\")

Run ( 'UninstallThunderbird.exe' )

Probably best:

FileChangeDir(@ProgramFilesDir)
If FileExists(".\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe") Then
Run ( '.\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe' )
WinWait ( "Mozilla Thunderbird Uninstaller" )
ControlClick ( "Mozilla Thunderbird Uninstaller", "", "&Yes" )
EndIf

It does not give any error. It is on pause. It just waits for the uninstall window to open. No file not found error :lmao:

Try changing the working directory to the uninstaller directory as below.

FileChangeDir(@ProgramFilesDir & '\Mozilla Thunderbird')
If FileExists("Thunderbird.exe") Then
    Run('Thunderbird.exe')
    WinWait("Mozilla Thunderbird Uninstaller")
    ControlClick("Mozilla Thunderbird Uninstaller", "", "&Yes")
Else
    MsgBox(0, '', 'Thunderbird.exe not found in ' & @LF & @WorkingDir)
EndIf

If issues persist, then you may need to look for the uninstall string in:

"HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall"

:lmao:
