AutoIt 4

24 posts in this topic

Well its not really a new autoit.What is basically is a exe autoit . Istead of compiling your autoit scripts to exe you can now compile them to .Au4 , as executable autoit scripts. They are like exes except they have a different extension.Its just something i thought to do. Later on i ll be workin on a gui interface so you could compile them directly from there all you have to do is run the extensionau4 to make your au4 files run on their own after that you could delete extensionau4 if you want and there you can make your exes au4

extensionau4.exe

I don't understand what you are saying. You can execute an executable with with any filetype, as long as it is an actual executable. For example, i could rename a program from calc.exe to calc.jpg and run it. If i did a standard double click, it would not work, but if I executed it, it would run and be displayed in task manager like any other process, minus the fact that it has a .jpg extension.

FileCopy("calc.exe","calc.txt")

Run("calc.txt")

The above is possible. It will run just like calc.exe

I first noticed this in the installs of Yahoo Messenger when a file called Glb090.tmp or something like that would appear in the process list of task manager during the install.

Please don't name such a thing AutoIt 4 and confuse people. Valik will have a field day with this post. Misleading titles.

What am saying is that instead of makin ur autoit script an exe file with the extension .exe u can still make an exe but with a different extension in this case it au4 but u could literally make ur own extensions that run like an exe

That is still not a reason why you want to do this ? masking something or what ?

<br /><br /><br />well u actually got my point that's a good reason to use it for but I could also use it to personaluse ur pc with any extension u want . But u could now mask an exe with any extension u want so I don't longer have to combine a pic with an exe and put a double extension u can now have an exe with any extension and masked but ofcourse those r not my intentions I just thouht ppl might like to have an exe with their names

I don`t like this idea at all!

Masking an .exe as something else is something a virus writer would do, I can`t see any other use for this... :whistle:

I`m not saying that was your original intention here, but this could create serious problems in the wrong hands..

I know it can't but to be able to mask that they first need to install the exe without that is impossible in this case u can mask any exe with au4 to do it to a jpg u hav to make a exe that will mask that but its not right to do that that's why I only mask names and not jpg bmp txt etc because the only intentions I see for that is for a virus but for a extension au4 I don't see no risk on doing that

Now if I don't like to hav a au4 extension PM me so I can giv u the fix to take the extension out

Otherwise enjoy ur new extension
