Filecopy .dat file to Local Drive

Recommended Posts

Hi, i am very new to scripting with autoit.

i am currently using Autoit v3 stable version to script

I got a problem that i hope u guys can help me with

i have written this line of code

-----------------------------------

Dircreate("C:\EA Licences")

sleep(50)

filecopy("X:\install\Enterprise Architect - Corporate Floating Edition\CD\EA Licenses\sskeys", "C:\EA Licenses", 1)

sleep(150)

----------------------------------

Basically what i want to do is i create a folder called "EA Licenses" in my C:\

Then copy the file from my mapped drive to this folder.

However only the CREATE part works. The file doesn't get copied over. am i doing something wrong here?

Is "sskeys" a directory or a file without an extension? I'll assume it's a directory containinng your .dat file

FileCopy("X:\install\Enterprise Architect - Corporate Floating Edition\CD\EA Licenses\sskeys\*.dat", "C:\EA Licenses\sskeys\", 9)
By using "9" ( 1 + 8) instead of "1" for the last parameter will create destination directory if doesn't already exist and will also overwrite any existing file if it does already exist.

Cheers

This doesn't work still

It somehow doesn't copy. it only copies over the folder itself
