Help with downloading functions

7 posts in this topic

I was reading through the online documents on autoit and I came across a function for downloading from a site.

Is it possible to make it so when the script is run, it

a) is hiddin from the quick launch tray(by the clock)

:) downloads and executes files from websites that i determine.

c) possibly download and execute the files in some kind of "ghost" mode so that you wouldn't see the files being downloaded or opened.

d) wait till there is an active internet connection(dial up user) before attempting to download

If all these are possible, wow...

Let me know, and if at all possible, please give me a quick tutorial on the functions i will need to use, or a link to some were that will tell me.

Thanks alot for all your help.

...Yea, sure you can, but you REALLY sound spooky looking to download something silently in the background without even an iformation box to the user. What are you trying to pull? Are you trying to install a virus?


Who else would I be?

Not a virus, maybe a prank, mostly just a learning expierence. I don't care if there is a prompt, just like, leave it downloading off screen.

I would most likely end up using this to download alot of differant files from differant locations at once, for instance music/pictures/expansions for games.

I don't plan to use somthing like that for a virus, if i was going to do thata, why not just send the virus....

thanks, got any ideas on what functions are used?

I would definately suggest reading the helpfile included when you downloaded AutoIt. Everything you have asked is there. Hiding the tray icon, downloading a file, etc.

EDIT: Nobody here will do it for you, but if you try and post some code if you have problems, then we can help debug non-working code.

I think I'm rubbing off on Larry. He's slowly becoming a cynical ass like me. You're doing good Larry.
