20 posts in this topic

I need to copy the contents of a folder thats in the scriptdir called \models to a folder on the desktop that exists called \models

I cant get anything to work

last atempt was this

$origdirect = @ScriptDir &"\models\*.*"
$copydirect = @DesktopDir&"\models\"

FileMove($origdirect, $copydirect, 1)

also is there away to include a folder when compiling??

You can only include files from what I know....

Try using:

DirMove

I've made a small app that ues FileMove and DirMove, maybe you'll find it usefull.

It's not totally finished but it works...

Press Options

Put first directory in the source and the second in the destination, (Also drag & drop) check the options (Files only etc) and press Ok then press Move

Here is the code, just run the code:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#NoTrayIcon

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)
Opt("OnExitFunc", "Quit")

Global $DestinationRead, $Check1, $Check2, $Radio1, $Radio2, $Countpaths, $ExtInput, $ExtLabel

                             MsgBox(262144, "Success", "File-Folder copy operation was succesfull!", 3)
                         Next
                     EndIf
                 EndIf
             EndIf
         EndIf
     EndIf
 EndFunc ;==>CopyFiles

but if you change

@DesktopDir & "\dir

to

C:\Users\XXX\Desktop\dir

it works!!

Well, the reason they aren't working, is because they are two completely different paths.

I think @DesktopDir is X:\Documents and Setting\User\Desktop\ at least on XP, maybe Vista is different...

Also If you use my code, maybe you want the ini also, in the dir you have it also keep a Settings.ini which contains:

The comments are just to help you out :mellow:

;Set the source and destination paths.For many sources separate with a coma (,).

;The program will copy/move the source(s), or all the contents of the source(s) into the destination

;If you use C:\Windows as the source, a folder named Windows will be created and all it's contents

;will be copied/moved, if you use C:\Windows\ no folder will be created and only the contents will

; be copied/moved.

[Paths]

SourcePath=

DestinationPath=

;1 for Overwrite, 0 do not Overwrite

;1 for Files Only, 0 for folders also

;1 for always on top, 0 for off

[Options]

Overwrite=1

FilesOnly=1

AlwaysOnTop=1

Extension=*.*

I've had the same problem on a couple of scripts I have wrote. It seems that @DesktopDir, @DocumentsDir, etc... are wrote to use the XP paths of

c:\documents and settings\User Name\Desktop and not the Vista path of c:\users\user name\desktop. For the scripts that I needed to run on Vista I have typed out the full path to the file/folder I need to copy. If you are looking to use this on multiple operating systems you might want to run some sort of check at the beginning to see what OS the machine is running. If it is XP you can use @desktopdir and if it is Vista use the complete path.

I think what's weird is in Vista I get the same values for both and you don't... but look at the article below this code:

ConsoleWrite(_DesktopDir_Vista() & @CRLF & @DesktopDir & @CRLF)

Func _DesktopDir_Vista()
    Local $s_desktop = RegRead("HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders", "Desktop")
    Local $a_sre = StringRegExp($s_desktop, "%(.*?)%(.*?)\z", 1)
    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, "")
    Return EnvGet($a_sre[0]) & $a_sre[1]
EndFunc

Might want to read this though: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943805
