I have one question,

how can I do the code Echo?

I have this program made: programma_s.au3 (but it is in the Netherlands :) )

I need only the Echo tag :S :S

Echo :)

Each language has it's unique set of functions, and Echo is not among the list of AutoIt functions.

Instead, use MsgBox or ConsoleWrite when using SciTe.

I hope this helps..

$var = "Press any key! "
runwait(@ComSpec & " /C echo " & $var & " &  pause>nul")

if FileExists(@ScriptDir & "\test.vbs") Then
    FileDelete(@ScriptDir & "\test.vbs")
EndIf

$TstFile = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\test.vbs", 1)
FileWriteLine($TstFile, 'wscript.echo "goodbye cruel world"')
FileWriteLine($TstFile, 'wscript.sleep 2000')
FileClose($TstFile)
runwait('wscript //NOLOGO ' & @ScriptDir & '\test.vbs')
runwait('cscript //NOLOGO ' & @ScriptDir & '\test.vbs')

@lordofthestrings - this seemed like an interesting topic and I was interested to see what your code did. A couple of points for what its worth.

#1 -- UNC paths are not supported. Defaulting to Windows directory. <== Guessing this could be corrected if I mapped a drive letter instead of using UNC paths.

#2 -- I get a Windows Script Host dialog box with the error text "There is no file extension in "<unc path>"."

@lordofstrings, this was not just what i was asking for.

what i want is a program in an autoit3 program and not a vbscript.
