File install problems

6 posts in this topic

Ive recently made a script to install a few programs that works when its in .au3 format but does not install the programs when compiled to exe, it runs thru the script without errors, except at the end when it needs to run the installed program, im a bit new to this so my script is a bit messy:

#include <file.au3>
#include-once "D:\Sam's Folder\Sam's Tool kit\Sam's tool kit BETA 1.5.exe"
#include-once "D:\Sam's Folder\Sam's Tool kit\registration.exe"
#include-once "D:\Sam's Folder\Sam's Tool kit\uninstaller.exe"
$renistall = "0"
$installed = regread("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sam's tool kit beta\installdir", "installed")
if $installed = "1" Then 
$renistall = msgbox(4, "already installed", "Sam's Toolkit is already installed on your system, would you like to reinstal or repair an old installation?")
endif
if $renistall = 7 Then
exit
endif
$msg1 = 2
$while = 0
$instal = msgbox(4, "Installation", "welcome to the Sam's toolkit beta instalation wizard would you like to install sam's toolkit now?")
if $instal = 7 then 
Exit
EndIf
while $while = 0
$installdir = FileSelectFolder("Please specify the destination folder, thankyou.", "", "1")
if @error = 1 then 
$msg1 = msgbox(4,"error", "you have not selected a destination, would you like to quit the intstalation?")
else 
    $while = 1
endif
if $msg1 = 6 Then
exit
elseif $msg1 = 7 then 
    $while = 0
endif
Wend
DirCreate ( $installdir )
FileInstall ("D:\Sam's Folder\Sam's Tool kit\Sam's tool kit BETA 1.5.exe", $installdir, 1)
FileInstall ("D:\Sam's Folder\Sam's Tool kit\registration.exe", $installdir, 1)
FileInstall ("D:\Sam's Folder\Sam's Tool kit\uninstaller.exe", $installdir, 1)
regwrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sam's tool kit beta\installdir", "installed", "REG_SZ", "1")
RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sam's tool kit beta\installdir", "install directory", "REG_SZ", $installdir)
msgbox(0, "instalation complete", "thankyou for installing sam's tool kit")
$msg2   = msgbox(4, "please register", "would you like to run the registration program, this is required to use sam's toolkit")
    if $msg2 = 6 Then
        run($installdir&"\registration.exe")
        exit
        endif

Does it install all the files correctly and just not run the program at the end or does it not install all the files correctly in addition to not running the program at the end?

You've got some helpfile reading to do... :)

First, your use of #include-once with a file parameter: That doesn't do anything. The #include-once keyword accepts no parameters and only need be listed once. All it does is prevent multiple declaration of functions. It has nothing to do with FileInstall() functioning.

I'm not on a Windows box, so can't test the theory, but I think you need the full file path, not just the folder, for the destination. Perhaps:

FileInstall ("D:\Sam's Folder\Sam's Tool kit\Sam's tool kit BETA 1.5.exe", $installdir & "\Sam's tool kit BETA 1.5.exe", 1)
FileInstall ("D:\Sam's Folder\Sam's Tool kit\registration.exe", $installdir & "\registration.exe", 1)
FileInstall ("D:\Sam's Folder\Sam's Tool kit\uninstaller.exe", $installdir & "\uninstaller.exe", 1)

:P

The destination path with trailing backslash. This can be a variable.

Some examples

Invalid: C:\Temp

Valid: C:\Temp\

Valid: C:\Temp\MyFile.txt
