Res Add Files

4 posts in this topic

I would like to know how Res Add Files works in Scite4AUtoIt3?

I need to include a file in a program without FileInstall, is that possible?

Touch,

Just add the directive at the top of your script. The file is added to RCDATA area of your compiled .exe - as I understand it AutoIt3Wrapper will only store this data type and will use the next numerical ID available:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_File_Add="full path of the file you want to add"

Because of this limitation I tend to use ResHacker to do it directly - then you can define the type of resource (e.g. rcdata, bitmap, sound, etc) and give it the name (either string or formatted integer) that you want:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_After=ResHacker.exe -add %out%, %out%, "file", type, name, 0

You might like to look at this thread where AutoIt3Wrapper's author explains the likely compile speed difference between the 2 methods. The thread is about .res files, but the same principles hold regardless of the type of file.

I take it you know of Zedna's Resources UDF to subsequently use the included resource? I cannot recommend it highly enough. You can find it here - but do read the thread carefully, you really do need to understand it before you can use it properly.

Yea, this is one of those things that needs to be picked up and changed if there is a real need for it.

The only purpose I saw in the beginning was to include multiple Icon and the source this way.

Not sure why the OP does't want to use FileInstall tho.
