DOS Path issue

6 posts in this topic

Morning,

So here is the code I have so far. What it essentially does is allow me to drop an SFX Archive on top of the icon and extract out (and read/display) one of the ini files. My problems are two fold.

1) If there is a space in the path name to the $SEPArchive (eg...C:\Documents and settings) then I break and cannot find/read the ini file. How do I enclose line 4 in quotes or something to preserve the word spaces?

2) How can I change line 3 (currently commented out) so that I have the option to either drag and drop the SFX archive or just manually launch the app and browse to the archive? I think I need to add something that tests if $CmdLine[1] contains anything...and if not, then FileOpenDialog. Just now sure how.

Thanks for any suggestions!

FileInstall("7za.exe", @TempDir & "\7za.exe")

1) There are single and double quotes: AutoIt parses both, Run just double quotes. So use single quotes to enclose double quotes for Run

& '7za.exe x "' & $SEPArchive & '" ' &

2) Check $CMDLINE[0] - this contains the number of cmdline-args

If $CMDLINE[0] > 0 Then
  $file = ...
Else
   $file = ...
EndIf

For example:
RunWait(@TempDir & '7za.exe x "' & $SEPArchive & '" setAid.ini', @TempDir, @SW_SHOW)

Note single quotes are enclosing literal double qoutes.

:P

To be absolutely certain of compatibility, I wouldn't use FileGetShortName(), because it is possible to turn off Short Names support.

(If you'd like to know how - Maximum PC magazine did an article which covers how to disable it.)
