FileWrite in exe doesn't work when VB called

2 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone,

Any help would be much appreciated.

The issue that I have encountered is that I initially compiled a .exe autoIT program. When the exe is executed on independently, the program works perfectly.

However I wrote a VB program that calls the autoIT .exe program. Most of the .exe function works except for the FileWrite commands.

---

The VB code is:

Private Sub Button4_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button4.Click

Dim RetVal

RetVal = Shell("C:\Users\Wallace Wee\Desktop\CFS LS\decomp [FINAL].exe", 1) ' Run Decomp

End Sub

And the relevant AutoIt commands are:

...

Send("{CTRLDOWN}a{CTRLUP}")

Send("{CTRLDOWN}c{CTRLUP}")

;C:\Users\Wallace Wee\Desktop\CFS LS\writMe.txt

$fileSize = 0

if FileExists("C:\Users\Wallace Wee\Desktop\CFS LS\writMe.txt") Then

$fileSize = FileGetSize("C:\Users\Wallace Wee\Desktop\CFS LS\writMe.txt")

EndIf

FileWrite("writMe.txt", ClipGet ())

sleep(500)

If $fileSize = FileGetSize("C:\Users\Wallace Wee\Desktop\CFS LS\writMe.txt") Then

FileWrite("writMe.txt", ClipGet ())

sleep(500)

EndIf

---

Please let me know if any additional information is needed.

Many Thanks,

Patrick Lau

FileWrite("writMe.txt", ClipGet ())

The file will write to the current working directory as shown above. I am going to guess that the file did write and is perhaps in the same directory as you VB app if that was the current working directory at execution.
