Unable to get console input mode - 0x80070006 The handle is invalid

9 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm trying to get the output from running a command. I copied the example from AutoIt's help file but I keep getting an error: Unable to get console input mode - 0x80070006 The handle is invalid

I'm trying to run the Bitsadmin.exe program. Bitsadmin

If I change the command line and remove the "/getstate test" I get the output without any errors. But if I add any options to the command line I get the same error. The error message comes from StdoutRead, StderrRead doesn't return anything.

My code is below.

Thanks,

Joe

#include <Constants.au3>

$foo = Run(@ComSpec & " /c C:\bitsadmin.exe /getstate test", @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

While 1
    $line = StdoutRead($foo)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    MsgBox(0, "STDOUT read:", $line)
Wend

While 1
    $line = StderrRead($foo)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    MsgBox(0, "STDERR read:", $line)
Wend

MsgBox(0, "Debug", "Exiting...")

Sometimes certain command line utility give nothing in output.

It does give output, it even has option flags to make the output easier to read for parsing (/RAWRETURN] [/WRAP | /NOWRAP)

#include <Constants.au3>

$_bitsadminPath = 'C:\bitsadmin.exe'
$_Pid = Run ( @ComSpec & ' /c "' & $_bitsadminPath & '" /getstate test', @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD )

While ProcessExists ( $_Pid )
    $line = StdoutRead ( $_Pid )
    If Not @error And $line = '' Then $line = StdoutRead ( $_Pid, True, True )  
    If Not @error And $line <> '' Then ConsoleWrite ( "STDOUT read : " & $line & @Crlf )
    $line = StderrRead ( $_Pid )
    If Not @error And $line = '' Then $line = StderrRead ( $_Pid, True, True )      
    If Not @error And $line <> '' Then ConsoleWrite ( "STDERR read : " & $line & @Crlf )    
Wend

I get "STDOUT read : Unable to get console input mode - 0x80070006 Descripteur non valide" Posted Image

Perhaps parameters are wrong ?

I changed the code to this

$foo = Run(@ComSpec & " /c C:\bitsadmin.exe /rawreturn /getstate test > c:\line.txt","C:\",@SW_MINIMIZE)

The only thing I changed was adding " > c:\line.txt" to the end of the command.

The output went to the text file correctly. If I addedd $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD optional flags, then the text file would have the "Unable to get console input mode - 0x80070006 " error message. So the problem is with $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD optional flags. I'm going to try your code without it and see what happens.

Same result ;)

I guess I'm stuck with sending output to text file and reading the text file. This sucks

I figured it out. I downloaded bitsadmin from Windows XP Support tools, which is an older version. I did some searching and found that there is a newer version in Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 32-bit Support Toolslink

This newer version works with no problems.

So the problem wasn't with my script, but with bitsadmin.exe itself.

Thank you for all your help Wakillon
