davil Posted November 7, 2008 Share Posted November 7, 2008 Hi to all, I was just wondering how anyone here would go about creating simple console apps for windows. All I would need to be able to do would be maybe some simple text manipulation, maybe some basic n00b TCP stuff, it would be great if I could do some DB stuff, perhaps SQLite??? Anyway I've done a bit of VB in the past but all this DOT NET stuff is confusing for a n00b like me. also I'd like to do something with free software, mainly because I'm a bit poor at the moment. The main reason for this post is because we have a logon script at work here (Batch) and I have it calling multiple types of scripts, VBS, AUTOIT exes, Freebasic EXES, all written by me for reporting on each PC on our network and some using other peoples software also. I would like to clean it all up to make it all one script for simplicity and so it's easier to remove some of the stuff that's out of date because there's way too much going on at the moment. I'm considering KiXtart but I'm not sure it will be any better. I'm a big fan of PHP + MySQL and I'm getting to grips with both of those languages fairly well. I like the way PHP just works without being too strict. It's easy to write functions and I'm slowly starting to understand OOP almost because the way PHP handles it is just so easy. It's just a pity PHP can't be used to create simple EXEs Also in the past I've used AUTOIT v3 to do a lot of my scripting here but lately it's giving a lot of vague errors on windows 2000 machines even though it works fine on our XP machines here..I need something that just works!!!.... I suppose I could just clean up the scripts manually like I used to but it just seems very inefficient. P.S. I've also seen these PHP "compilers" lately and I was wondering if any of them are worth trying: ZZEE PHPExe Priadoblender Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
