The variable

7 posts in this topic

I am trying to launch a program by using AutoIt. Here is the code from the batch file

"C:\Program Files\Autodesk\ACADM 2008\acad.exe" /p "C:\ACAD Configuration\CKProfile.arg" %1 %2 %3 %4

Anyone knows how to make it work with AutoIt?

Thanks!

The Message I have from the program (AutoCAD) is:

Cannot find the spefified drawing file. Please verify that the file exists.

You don't want the %1 %2 %3 %4 in there. Those are command line arguments sent to the batch file and don't have any effect in your script. Just remove them from the end.

Thanks.

The arguments %1 %2 %3 %4 is something needed by the Data Management software here. When I use the batch file to launch AutoCAD, it works fine. But ... Just cannot figure out how I can make it work with AutoIt. Is there anyway I can send/receive the arguement?

Are these arguments being sent to the AutoIt script then? If they are, you can use the $CmdLine variable.

$args = '/p "C:\ACAD Configuration\CKProfile.arg"'
For $i = 1 To $CmdLine[0]
    $args &= ' "' & $CmdLine[1] & '"'
Next
ShellExecuteWait("C:\Program Files\Autodesk\ACADM 2008\acad.exe", $args)

Something like this should work.

You would, of course, replace "%1 %2 %3 %4" with actual parameters:

$sExtCmd = 'C:\Program Files\Autodesk\ACADM 2008\acad.exe'
$sParam1 = '"My New Drawing Name"'
$sParam2 = '/p "C:\MyDrawings\ACADProfile.arg"'
$sParam3 = '/s "C:\Lisp;C:\VBA"'
$sParam4 = '/t "C:\MyDrawings\MyTemplate.dwt"'
$sParam5 = '/nologo'
$sAllParams = $sParam1 & ' ' & $sParam2 & ' ' & $sParam3 & ' ' & $sParam4 & ' ' & $sParam5
ShellExecuteWait($sExtCmd, $sAllParams)

:idea:

Edit: Way too slow today! :)
