Sending a Path to an installer

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

I need to send a file location path to an msi installer that I am running via AutoIT.

I have set of variable of $path = "V:\Install"

and I am sending : Send($Path & "\Visualfiles V2 Client v1.1\solcase & visualfiles api v1.4\Prettys") as my path.

When this is sent to the installer, only half of the path is displayed (from v1.1 onwards).

Does anyone have any ideas why this happens and how I can get resolve it.

Any help would be greatly received, I am been scratching my head for a day or so over this one !

Thanks.

Did I get that right - you're sending the path string via send into an edit field from the installer?

There are two possible outcomes: either the path is not send completely to the installer (I doubt it) or

simply the path is longer than the edit field can display so it starts scrolling.

If so, you'd see the start of the path if you press the "home" key in the edit field.

hope this helps,

Marc


It's my job to comfort the disturbed and to disturb the comfortable.

Hi Marc, thanks for the reply.

I think the path is being send correctly, and it's not as simple as having scroll back to the start, it's simply not writing anything before v1.1
