Location of embedded files

Post by steph78630 »

Hello all,

when I add an external file (embedded file) in the EXE file, during the execution it appears in a subfolder whose name seems randomly generated (qb...), for eg. :

C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\qb1222BDF.E2\my_embedded_file.vbs
or
C:\Windows\Temp\qbDA0163.B1\my_embedded_file.vbs
or
D:\My documents\My projects\qb127BA0E.E8\my_embedded_file.vbs


...Then it is difficult to run the embedded file from the compiled script

My config : Quick Batch File Compiler v. 4.3.0.2 (registered version)

Use %MYFILES% environment variable to get the path to embedded files.

Yes, use %MYFILES% as the path to your embedded file.

Indeed, it works, thank you @support @hacxx !

For those who would like to run an embedded file from the EXE file (for eg. VBS file):

start "" %MYFILES%"\personal_file.vbs"
