A couple of things.
- Don't run this from the editor, the script has to have a name on the file system to be deleted,
- There is an Exit>0 line 9 lines down from the top. It's there to prevent the sample from deleting itself. It needs to be remarked or removed for the script to delete itself.
- After successfully running and deleting the script, the script name will still display in the main menu. You'll need to manually delete the entry.
- My intent was to have an executable that would delete itself. This script will work compiled.
Much of the script is example foolishness. The seven lines that are important are where the script creates a batch file that is set up to delete the script (four lines). The script then runs the batch file and exits so that the script is no longer an active process (three lines). This allows the batch file to delete the script. The batch file then deletes itself. I suppose a batch file can delete itself because its running in a command shell process rather than in its own process?
