help with run()

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to get autoit to start a program for me so I tried

RunWait("Point-N-Click.exe","C:\Program Files\Point-N-Click")

but the error I get is

"the system cannot find the specified file"

Point-N-Click.exe is located where????

You want the full path in the first paramter. For example:

RunWait("C:\Program Files\Point-N-Click\Point-N-Click.exe","C:\Program Files\Point-N-Click")

I suggested adding a note in the helpfile to avoid this problem but it didn't seem very popular...

The glass is neither half empty nor half full, it is simply twice as big as it needs to be.

Yea, what he said ^

Assuming from your second parameter, Point-N-Click.exe is located in C:\Program Files\Point-N-Click so unless your script is ALSO located there, it wont work.

Or, simply set C:\Program Files\Point-N-Click\Point-N-Click.exe as your first parameter (still assuming Point-N-Click.exe is in C:\Program Files\Point-N-Click)

EDIT: ah, either I was late or he got there way before me XD
