Problem with RegRead()

11 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

I have a problem using the RegRead()-function.

If I read a RegKey, for example the path of a Program, like this:

$var = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MirandaFusion","")

MsgBox(0,"Path",$var)

Run("miranda32.exe", $var)

Here the function returns : "C:\Program Files\MirandaFusion" in the MessageBox.

That´s ok. But when I try to give the path (in $var) to the funtion Run(). It doesn´t work.

My intention is to search for the path of an application an then to start the Program in this path.

I would be pleased if somebody could give me an advice how it could work?

Thank U

More information is needed on what doesn't work about it. Is there an error? What is not working? Please describe.

Maybe you should try this one:

CODE
Run( $var & "\miranda32.exe", $var)

Sry, I forgot.

No there´s no Error-Message or something.

When I know the path and type:

Run("example.exe",example_path)

Everything is fine.

But if I dont nothing happens.

gkrapp has it right. $var is only the directory path so you need to append the filename.extension as shown in his example.

shot in the dark ...

Run("miranda32.exe",$var & "\")

If not perhaps look into RunAs().

Sorry it was my mistake.

It works. I just typed the wrong path for the registry.

Thank U very much.

No. The path is still missing in Run.

If StringRight($Var, 1) = "\" Then $Var = StringTrimRight($Var, 1)
$App = $Var & "\miranda32.exe"
If NOT FileExists($App) Then
   MsgBox(0, "File Error", "The path to the application is incorrect")
   Exit
EndIf
Run($App, $Var)

EDIT: Minor code change.

You´re totally right. ;-)

I tried, but it didnt work, but I think he posted 1 minute before me. ^^

You are good Guys, I think the next time I´m going to ask the one or other question. Today I started scripting with AutoIt.

And I think it´s very nice. And it works great, if U know what to type in^^
