Recommended Posts



Quick question:I am trying to run an application using cmd.exe. How can I get the content of the commands that I have executed, from the screen and send it to a file?

Here is what I have try,Just an example, but it seems not to work

#include <file.au3>

$tempFile = ("C:\Documents and Settings\Avul\My Documents\temp\tempfile.txt"); creating a temp file

Local $console = Run ("C:\WINNT\system32\CMD, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD")

Run ("C:\WINNT\system32\CMD") ;opening cmd

WinWait ("C:\WINNT\system32\CMD.exe")


MsgBox(0, "","Console opened",2)

Send ("Help{enter}") ; sending a command

;in the following lines I am trying to take what ("Help{enter}") had put on the screen and send it to the tempfile

Local $line

While 1

$line = StdoutRead($console)

If @error Then ExitLoop

MsgBox(0, "STDOUT read:", $line)


$line = StdoutRead ("C:\WINNT\system32\CMD.exe")

;FileWrite($tempFile, $line)

_FileWriteLog ($tempFile, $line)
