Question

6 posts in this topic

I'm creating an automated install package for an application at work and it's working great. My question is, can you make it so the installer is only 1 file? I have 2 files, 1 file is the actual installer and than the other .exe is the answer file(.au3)

Am I missing something or is there no way to accomplish what I'm asking? Thanks guys.

Welcome to the Forums :)

I don't believe you can include a file within your .exe. The only way in my mind to have an .exe that "installs" other files would be to 1) Host the needed files on a website 2) InetGet("www.website.com/example.exe", $target). So look up InetGet in the helpfile and look into it, the only problem is that it requires access to the internet, which some find unprofessional.

Thanks for the quick reply. So, just to be clear, whenever you create an automated script for installing a piece of software you have to have, minimum, 2 executable files? 1 for the compiled script and one for the actual installer?

The reason I ask is that our corporate office released a new piece of software today and it was all automated and only 1 executable. Thanks again.

FileInstall ?

I know, I just ment that it could not actually HAVE the file within the .exe, I was clarifying that so it would be clear to him that it is not possible (in autoit, anyway).

quick solution would be winrar. Create a sfx installer package

Thanks goog, it's working perfectly now. Don't know why I didn't think of that :)
