Could you not use something like this?

FileCopy ( "c:\test.html", "c:\test.mht")

i don't believe so, im trying to open a web site that will have pictures in it, and then save it as a mht so the pictures are attached to the page, saving a html as a mht doesn't do this

I've got it this far, now maybe Dale can help you from here.

Here is the SaveAs command, but I have no idea on how to add the string for the path.

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate()
_IENavigate ($oIE, "http://google.com")
_IEAction2($oIE, "SaveAs")

 Func _IEAction2($o_object, $s_action)
    If IsObj($o_object) Then
        $s_action = StringLower($s_action)
        Select        
           Case $s_action = "saveas"
                $o_object.document.execCommand ("SaveAs")
                SetError(0)
                Return 1
        EndSelect
    Else
        SetError(1)
        Return 0
    EndIf
EndFunc ;==>_IEAction2

it looks like you're trying to use controlsend without specifying a control id, classname, etc to identify the actual control to receive the text. although there was a time (8 months or so ago) when this was suggested quite profusely on the forums, when people actually tried it none were successful. i think that the method bigd suggests will actually get you a filesavedialog on screen, but that may be the easiest way to go.

Nice try... the SaveAs actually has a MSOCMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER parameter that can be sent along with it, but for security reasons it is a NO-OP. There is no way to do this silently I'm afraid -- you'll need to use SEND to send keystrokes to automate the SaveAs dialog. It's frustrating, but it is this way for a good reason.

I haven't looked into this, but if you are really motivated, there is a chance that this could work with an HTML Application (.hta instead of .htm) because the security model is relaxed.

I don't see where the SaveAs command that I provided a link to has an MSOCMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER parameter. The IDM_SAVEAS does, but that is something totally different. I don't know much about any of this stuff yet, but I guess it just looked pretty easy to specify the path.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. The IE.au3 function does not have that parameter, but the low-level call behind it all does (there are multiple ways to call it as it turns out). In any case, altough it is documented, it does not work and was disabled by Microsoft for security reasons.
