Run causes error "run from original Directory"

Recommended Posts

I crated a script to kick off and run a installer (opens, clicks a few buttons, etc)

when the file execute via the script it says "please run from original Directory containing "executables""

its a installer craeted for a custom Accounting module. It has a subfolder named executeables. we just drop updated executables in that folder and the exe includes them if run again.

Any idea how to make this work? Is it a "working directry" issue?

I am kind of new to this awesome program. this is my second installer attempt. I was lucky the first time as it supported the /silent option.

Run ( "filename" [, "workingdir" [, flag[, standard_i/o_flag]]] )

Place @WorkingDir in "workingdir"


Thanks for the reply.

I am not sure what im doing wrong.

my original run line read:

;run("\\server\cd$\accounting\custom\Full Client\xxxAppInstall.exe")

Run( "xxxAppInstall.exe", "\\server\cd$\accounting\custom\Full Client\")

Now i get a can not find path?

Is it because im using UNC?

i need it on a share, prefer it hidden. Prefer not to map it.

I plan push this out with webex 'system management' which is how i found out about autoit. :)
