Invalid FileInstall() Function:

Recommended Posts

drw112

The script "runs" fine but when I try to compile it I get the error Invalid FileInstall() Function:

;File install for images
Global $images[7] = ["\vlc.jpg", "\sb.gif", "\reader.jpg", "\jre.jpg", "\winzip.jpg", "\smail.jpg", "printer.jpg"]

$i = 0
While $i < UBound($images)
FileInstall("C:\AutoIT\images\" & $images[$i], @TempDir & $images[$i])
$i = $i + 1
Wend

Anybody have an idea?

FileInstall ( "source", "dest" [, flag] )

Parameters

source The source path of the file to compile. This must be a literal string; it cannot be a variable.

dest The destination path of the file with trailing backslash if only the directory is used. This can be a variable.

flag [optional] this flag determines whether to overwrite files if they already exist:

0 = (default) do not overwrite existing files

1 = overwrite existing files

This seems pretty inefficient for people that have a lot of files to install. There is absolutely no way I can do this with an array and a loop?

The thing to understand here is that the files that are "FileIncluded" are included at Compilation time, NOT when the scrip runs, thus there is no way that variables can be supported.

:D
