@comspec issue (formatting of command)

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Below is the command I am trying to run, I enclosed it with single qoutes because of the command using qoutes internally. Should this execute properly?

RunWait( @ComSpec & 'rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /ia /m "HP Universal Printing PCL 6 (v4.7)" /h "Intel" /v "Windows 2000 or XP" /f Y:\printer\HP_UPD\hpcu083c.inf')

I am able to run the command from a command line and it does execute properly. Do I need to use "&" signs and break up the command so i can just use the double qoutes?

Just replace RunWait() with ConsoleWrite() and you'll see the problem pretty quickly:
ConsoleWrite(@ComSpec & 'rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /ia /m ...')

:D
