Little example showing how to use a small batch file to delete your own
exe after it's done, and also delete the bat file itself. Great for installation
routines.

Code:
  DIALOG CREATE,Self Kill,-1,0,240,59
  DIALOG ADD,BUTTON,BUTTON1,19,24,193,24,Kill my own exe now!
  DIALOG SHOW

  WAIT EVENT

  LIST CREATE,1
  LIST ADD,1,:BEGIN
  LIST ADD,1,DEL @shortname(%0)
  LIST ADD,1,IF EXIST @shortname(%0) GOTO BEGIN
  LIST ADD,1,DEL @shortname(@path(%0))killme.bat
  LIST SAVEFILE,1,@path(%0)killme.bat
  LIST CLOSE,1
  RUNH @shortname(@path(%0))killme.bat
  EXIT

Exclamation awesome Exclamation
I been doing that for a long time, but I had to use the CALL in my batch file, to call another one.
Your way is much nicer and less headache...
Thanks Garrett (I'll use it somedays I'm sure) Very Happy
