@ScriptDir only refers to the folder that the script is in so any file you refer to with that macro must reside in, or be relative to, the same folder as your script.

Also you can not set @ScriptDir with @ScriptDir =

You could however use $Dir = 'C:\Documents and Settings\'

Better Yet (because of the spaces)

$Dir = '"C:\Documents and Settings\"'

EDIT: You could also use $Dir = FileGetShortName('C:\Documents and Settings\') but be forewarned... I have seen this fail, although not often.

@ComSpec knows what %ProgramFiles% is but AutoIt does not unless you use Opt('ExpandEnvStrings', 1).

RunWait('msiexec TRANSFORMS="\wcp\WCP.MST" TARGETDIR="%ProgramFiles%\Common Files\wcp" /qb- /i"' & @ScriptDir & '\wcp\wcp.msi"')

->error

to

RunWait('msiexec TRANSFORMS="' & @ScriptDir & '\wcp\WCP.MST" TARGETDIR="' & @ProgramFilesDir & '\Common Files\wcp" /qb- /i "' & @ScriptDir & '\wcp\wcp.msi"')

:)
