INIREAD returns ERROR

07 Sep 2018, 03:03

Hello all,

I've made some research but I can't figure out how to solve my problem :

When I select a .INI file and make an IniRead, it always returns an error.

I am sure I am missing something and that's why I'm asking the boards for help ...

Here's the script (UTF-8 without BOM):

Code: Select all

;==================================================
; GUI
;==================================================

Gui, Add, Button, h25 w150 vOpen_LogFile gButt_OpenLog, Open Logfile
Gui, Show, Autosize, INI TEST
return

;==================================================
;LABELS
;==================================================

Butt_OpenLog:
	; SetWorkingDir, logs
	FileSelectFile, temp_FileName,,, Please choose a previous IM log file from the logs folder,
	IniRead, temp_IM_number, %temp_FileName%, Header, IM_number
	MsgBox, temp_FileName = %temp_FileName%`ntemp_IM_number = %temp_IM_number%
Return	

GuiEscape:
GuiClose:
	ExitApp
Return
My INI file (ANSI):

Code: Select all

[Header]
IM_number=IM11223344
I suspect the error is right under my nose but it's too large for me to see anything...

Obviously, there'll be more than a single line in my INI file but I need to get this fixed before going any further.

Thank you !

Your ini file is in UTF-8 with BOM.

I've changed myfile.ini encoding to UTF-8 (as with NP++ there's not the choice of UTF-8 with BOM) and it's not working any better :(

I've forced both my script and ini file as ANSI, it's not working neither.

Open the ini file in Notepad and save it with the encoding "Unicode" (UTF-16 LE).

Notepad only proposes :
- ANSI
- Unicode
- Unicode big endian
- UTF-8

Notepad refers to "UTF-16 LE" as "Unicode".
