Hi Guys

Im using the following code to create an iso however i have no idea how long it will take as there is no screen or information. Is there anyway to read the information and display it?

$doscommand = ('mkisofs.exe -l -J -r -V "APHC" -o "' & @DesktopDir & '\APHC.iso" ' & '"' & @ScriptDir & '"')
    MsgBox(64,"Information","This will create an iso called APHC.iso in the following directory " & @DesktopDir)
    _RunDOS($doscommand)

thnaks for all your help

There is no need to use _RunDOS.

Just use Run with the Show-Flag @SW_HIDE and the flags to enable StdoutRead

$pid = Run("mkisofs.exe ...", "", @SW_HIDE, 0x8) ; 0x8 = $STDERR_MERGED (StdOutRead receives Stdout and stderr)
$sOutput = ''
While 1
    Sleep(50)
    $sRead = StdoutRead($pid)
    If @error <> 0 Then ExitLoop
    $sOutput &= $sRead
    ToolTip($sOutput)
WEnd
StdioClose($pid)
ToolTip("")
MsgBox(0, 'Finished', $sOutput)
