Launch AutoIt from IE

Recommended Posts

I'm having a hard time figuring this out.

I have a simple web page with vbscript and 1 button. When the user clicks the button, I want vbscript to launch Autoit.

I keep getting an IE error telling me it can't open the file. I think it has to do with the spaces in the path. I tried to escape the quotations but it did not work.

Here's what I have so far in vb script:

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Sub RunCode 
        WshShell.Run("C:\Progra~1\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Clients\Scripts\GetValue.au3")
End Sub

I also tried: WshShell.Run("C:\Progra~1\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe C:\Docume~1\User\My~1\Clients\Scripts\GetValue.au3")

but it didn't work.

What am I doing wrong?

i'm not sure about the code aboce but if the client don't have a Scite installed then it sure can't work, try compile it to .exe first

Yes, it is a whilte space problem. Try:

WshShell.Run("C:\Progra~1\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe ""C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Clients\Scripts\GetValue.au3""")

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
