Imbedded AutoIt executable

6 posts in this topic

Hello peoples,

I just have a little query (not queerie)!

I believe I heard that every AutoIt compiled script (.exe), has the AutoIt executable imbedded in it? If this is true, is it therefor possible to call this to run an external .au3 file? How if so?

In other words run a .au3 script on a machine where AutoIt isn't installed?

The scenario would be useful, where you create a temporary script file (.au3) to run, then delete it afterwards.

How I personally would like to use this kind of ability, would be where you store the content of a possible file in an .ini file as a variable, which can be updated/modified as the user requires.

An executable being a finalized form does not have this ability to change - only mildly through variables, that while maybe stored in an .ini file, cannot drastically change the exe's complete behaviour. ;)

/AutoIt3ExevuteScript switch allows a compiled script to execute a au3 or a3x file directly.

Thanks Captain!

And thanks for the .mht advice & code, though I haven't yet tested it ... been busy busy! ;)

Just remember that your script can't include files that is not on the machine..;)

Of course not. Then no includes exist. :lmao:

The compiled script can find a include folder when inside the AutoIt directory as relative search is used so may follow the same outside the install directory so long as you have a include folder still next to it. You can use a3x files to be sure if includes are used.

Hi Uten

Just remember that your script can't include files that is not on the machine..

Yeah I'll have to ponder on that some, as my original intention was just for simple scripts ... though of course, that will be up to the end user ... I may have to give them a double warning - 1) not to do it, and 2) warn if the word include is detected at creation time!

THANKS for the advice! ;)

When I get some space to post my Toolbar program, you'll get to see what I wanted it for - sort of a mini version of trialing a script - somewhat like you can in Scite. At the moment it looks for the AutoIt exe, but I can ammend that now! :lmao:
