How to run various filenames?...

3 posts in this topic

I have built a utility that needs the ability to run a file from a listview.

I have everything running except the last piece.

How do I get windows to recognize a filename (extension) and open whatever

program is needed?

For example, the following will not work:

Run('Fitting 50179 compress union.xls', 'w:\qc\Danco QIR\Compression fittings QIR')

and

Run('w:\qc\Danco QIR\Compression fittings QIR\Fitting 50179 compress union.xls')

How can I get AutoIT to recognize the extension and open excel, word, etc?

Run(@Comspec & ' /c "' & $File_Path_Name & '" ' & $Parameters, '', @SW_HIDE)
