FileInstall() Says: Cannot use a variable

8 posts in this topic

Is there any possible way at all, for FileInstall to check a text file or anything, and to use what it gets as the 'Source' it says it must be a literal string, but is there a way this can work?

aut2exe doesn't not support it so: No.

The only option you have is to write some sort of wrapper that "generates" the fileinstall() statements for you.

In the install script that you will be creating with your script, the FileInstall indeed needs to be a literal string. Your script creating script however will not need to be using fileinstall at all, only creating another script that will use it.

Man, I hope that made at least some sense.

EDIT: damn it Jos, thats twice now.... for the rest of the day I will wait an extra 30 seconds, refresh, then post if you haven't already :)

Not that I see it as a competition, it's just a waste of my time when I click the post button to see the answer right above my post :)

I wouldn't dare consider it a competition when the devs are competing.

I only post here because I love autoit and don't take my job seriously enough LMAO.

I only post because I am lazy after a days work and don't feel like doing much more than sit in a recliner with my LT with a good glas of redwine and answering some of the posts here. :)

Its just a hobby for me too.

Edit: and hoping nobody pulls any BS causing the need to go into "Evil Mod Mode"
