syntax question: using $var in a RUN command

Recommended Posts

grasshopper

as of yesterday i am new to working with autoitv3. i think this is going to be a great tool for administering servers and workstations.

i am unable to successfully execute the following line of code:

Run ("$variclient.exe -config C:\Temp\IntegrityDesktop\source\Policy.xml")

it generates the following error > Error: Unable to execute the external program.

i beleive the problem is with the syntax - specificially in adding the variable to the Run command.

the variable $var = C:\Program Files\Zone Labs\Integrity Client\

how do i properly add the variable $var to the run command above?

is this what you meant to do?

Run ($var & "iclient.exe -config C:\Temp\IntegrityDesktop\source\Policy.xml")

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

how do i place a variable in the middele of the Run command?

Run ($var & "iclient.exe -config C:\Temp\IntegrityDesktop\source\Policy.xml")

i would like to replace the path with a variable - here is what i have come up with so far. it however does not work.

Run ($var&"iclient.exe -config" $var2&"\Policy.xml")

and

Run ($var&"iclient.exe -config "$var2&"\Policy.xml")

what is the correct syntax for this line of code?
