Programs Problem!

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,

I'm working on a little program called "Launcher" and I am having a couple of problems.

1. I can't get the Programs to launch once the user has pressed the button.

and

2. I'm not sure how to use the ini commands.

Here is my code for the first problem:

CODE
#include <GuiConstants.au3>

#include <Skins\XSkin.au3>

$Skin_Folder = @ScriptDir & "\Skins\Sleek" ; Skin Folder

$Icon_Folder = @ScriptDir & "\Skins\Sleek" ; icon folder

FileCreateShortcut(@ScriptDir & "\Launcher v0.3.1b.exe",@DesktopDir & "\Launcher.lnk",@ScriptDir, "Shortcut to Launcher")

$XSkinGui = XSkinGuiCreate("Launcher v0.3.1b", 342, 280, $Skin_Folder)

$XIcon = XSkinIcon($XSkinGui, 2)

$Logo = GuiCtrlCreatePic("Images\Launcher 0.3.1b.jpg", 65, 35, 220, 40) ; Logo

$LaunchWoW = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Launch WoW", 80, 90, 190, 20) ; Launch World of Warcraft

$Websites = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Websites", 80, 120, 190, 20) ; Launch the Websites Window

$Vent = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Launch Vent", 80, 150, 190, 20) ; Launch Ventrilo if you have it

$TS = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Launch TS", 80, 180, 190, 20) ; Launch TeamSpeak if you have it

$About = GuiCtrlCreateButton("About", 80, 210, 190, 20) ; Launch the about window with information on Launcher

;Define your path variables here

$IEPath="D:\Program Files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe"

$FFPath="C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

$WoWPath="D:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Launcher.exe"

$VentPath="D:\Program Files\Ventrilo\Ventrilo.exe"

$TeamSpeakPath="D:\Program Files\Teamspeak2_RC2\TeamSpeak.exe"

Case $msg=$Vent

Case $msg=$TS

run($TeamSpeakPath)

Case $msg = $Websites

$XSkin = XSkinGuiCreate("Websites", 358, 314, $Skin_Folder)

$XIcon = XSkinIcon($XSkinGui, 2)

$WoWSiteFF = GuiCtrlCreateButton("WoW Site FireFox", 70, 50, 220, 20)

$WoWSiteIE = GuiCtrlCreateButton("WoW Site Internet Explorer", 70, 80, 220, 20)

$CurseIE = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Curse-Gaming Internet Explorer", 70, 200, 220, 20)

$GoogleFF = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Google FireFox", 70, 230, 220, 20)

$GoogleIE = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Google Internet Explorer", 70, 260, 220, 20)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

Case $msg=$About

$XSkinGui = XSkinGuiCreate("About", 300, 180, $Skin_Folder)

$XIcon = XSkinIcon($XSkinGui, 2)

$Logo = GuiCtrlCreatePic("Images\About.jpg", 100, 35, 93, 39)

$Info = GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Launcher is a small program that is designed to make launching World Of Warcraft and Other related programs easier. ", 40, 75, 230, 50)

$CR = GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Copyright © 2007 alien13 All Rights reserved.", 40, 120, 230, 20)

$Email = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Email", 90, 140, 120, 20)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

$msg = GUIGetMsg()

Select

Case $msg = $XIcon[1]

Case $msg = $Email

$XSkinGUI = XSkinGuiCreate("Email", 267, 96, $Skin_Folder)

$XIcon = XSkinIcon($XSkinGui, 2)

$Email = GuiCtrlCreateLabel("Email: jimbeam14@gmail.com", 70, 45, 150, 20)

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

ExitLoop

EndSelect

WEnd

EndSelect

WEnd

Exit

I don't think my Websites window is seeing the

Case $msg=$**

run($*** & " www.***.***")

And here is what I tried to do to get the program to read the ini file so users can choose their program directory's:

CODE
*This is added to my main script*

$IEPath = IniRead("Config.ini", "IE", "IE", 0)

$FFPath = IniRead("Config.ini", "FF", "FF", 0)

$WoWPath = IniRead("Config.ini", "WoW", "WoW", 0)

$VentPath = IniRead("Config.ini", "Vent", "Vent", 0)

$TSPath = IniRead("Config.ini", "TS", "TS", 0)

This is my ini file

[iE]

IE = $IEPath="D:\Program Files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe"

[FF]

FF = $FFPath="C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

[WoW]

WoW = $WoWPath="D:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Launcher.exe"

[Vent]

Vent = $VentPath="D:\Program Files\Ventrilo\Ventrilo.exe"

[TS]

TS = $TeamSpeakPath="D:\Program Files\Teamspeak2_RC2\TeamSpeak.exe"

When I open it, it gives the error : (in my Config.ini file)

[iE]

^ ERROR

Error: Unable to parse line.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks, alien13

Cool, thats perfect =D

Now all I need is to be able to Allow the user to define the location of their programs and im set =)

Thanks for the help =)

/me is off to read the INI* section :)

Oh, and the sleek design is by Bigdaddy(?). Once Ive made a fairly stable version of Launcher I will go onto maybe making a skin. If I do I will let you know =)

Yay. I did it. It took me about 5-10 seconds for the idea to pop into my head and when I tried it, to my amazement ... IT WORKED :)

Later on I will try and add a setup button that allows users to edit the Config.ini file from inside the program =)

Thanks for all the help guys.

If possible could you maybe test it for me? You can get it from my homepage for it here.

Thanks, alien13
