ShellExecuting .BIN file

3 posts in this topic

Hi folks. I am making a launcher for a game and i need to ShellExecute a .bin file to start it, but when i try it i am getting an error.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>

$Form = GUICreate("Vitality Aion Launcher by Crowen v1.10", 417, 157, -1, -1)
$Label2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please chose your Aion Bin32 Folder:", 8, 56, 200, 100)
$SavePath = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 11, 80, 345, 21)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Welcome to Vitality Aion Launcher", 8, 8, 409, 32)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 16, 800, 2, "Rosewood Std Regular")
$Browsr = GUICtrlCreateButton("&...", 360, 79, 50, 24, 0)
$Launch = GUICtrlCreateButton("Launch Vitality Aion", 160, 120, 100, 25, 0)
While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $Launch
        Case $Browsr
            $get = FileSelectFolder('Please select a directory', @DesktopDir, 5, GUICtrlRead($SavePath), $Form)
            If Not @error Then
                GUICtrlSetData($SavePath, $get)

Func Launch()
    ShellExecute(GUICtrlRead($SavePath)&"\Aion.bin", "-ip: -ng")

And the error is

The File does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create in the association in the Folder Options control panel.

How can i fix it ?

Don't use shellexecute, use run instead. that is unless you want to integrate an association for for the bin extension in your shell :) (which is not recommended.)

Func Launch()
     Run(GUICtrlRead($SavePath)&"\Aion.bin -ip: -ng")


Is this bin file an executable?
