fileinstall question

6 posts in this topic

From what I understand, if I use the fileinstall function in an exe. the files extracted to the temp directory are suppose to automatically delete....that is not happening. Do I have this wrong? Do I have to put in a function to delete the files upon exit?

I don't THINK they are supposed to uninstall. If you want them deleted after everytime though you're going to need to put a FileDelete in your script.

$Program_1 = @TempDir & "\Temp1.exe"
FileInstall("C:\Documents and Settings\user\Desktop\scripts\antivirus\setup.exe", $Program_1) 


....script



FileDelete(@TempDir & "\Temp1.exe")

enjoy! :)

FileInstall will not delete files. It's just a method to include a file into a compiled script and then extract it when required. If the script is not compiled then a FileCopy is performed instead.
