.au3 -->fake .exe?

15 posts in this topic

Hey!

I'm using the torrent tracker Utorrent, and it got a features that it lauches a .exe file

after the torrent file downloaded. I notice that it wont load .exe converted files that

I'm converted from .au3. Tried thousand of other .exe, and even converted .bat -->.exe

and all of them work.

What's wrong, can i converted them in some other way?

So your saying that, Utorrent wont open your .exes?

True, It wont start .exe files converted from .au3

Just changing the extension of a file doesn't make it the type of file you are changing the extension to.

Use the Compiler in SciTe (under tools) to compile and make it an actual .exe.

An au3 file needs an interpreter to run., If you need further help then we may need to see your script that launches this executable to evaluate it further. ;)

If I'm understanding this correctly, you made an .au3 file in autoit and it works, but you want to compile it to .exe so you could have it run from uTorrent. so you then used AutoIt's converter to convert it to an .exe, but it still won't work in your torrent thing. Am I on the right track?

If so, one thing that might be worth trying is removing the UPX Compression on the .exe when you compile it.

Not sure it will work, but it couldn't really hurt anything to try.

Under the Compression menu in Aut2Exe, uncheck UPX Compress .exe stub.

I know that uTorrent is also packed with UPX maybe it's an incompatibility with 2 UPX's running together, just guessing

kk, thx for the information

Well, don't think we gonna solve this, so start working on a "Work around". For the moment I'm using a converted .bat file that will open my converted .au3 file. But the thing is, my script uses the command "@scriptname", and I changes the scripts name everytime I use it.

So every time I need to change the scipts titel/name I need to change the .bat file and then recomplie it. Very frustrating!

Edit: Is there a function that could reconise if the torrent file has finshed downloading??
