Folder move help

8 posts in this topic

Hello again.

I am using the following command to copy a folder which works fine

RunWait('xcopy.exe "' & $SETDESKTOPDIR & '" "' & $TEMPFOLDER & "\Desktop" & '" /e /c /h /r /k /y /d /i', @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)

What would be the dos command to move a folder? as I dont want to use the built-in dirmove. I know the actual command but i mean how would I use it in auto it like the above command?

thanks

Hi am632,

did you try "move"?

move C:\folder1 C:\folder2

am632,

From the Help file for RunWait:

To run DOS commands, try RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & "commandName") ; don't forget " " before "/c"

Sorry. Melba23 is right.

RunWait('xcopy.exe "' & $SETDESKTOPDIR & '" "' & $TEMPFOLDER & "\Desktop" & '" /e /c /h /r /k /y /d /i', @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)

but i mean how would I use it in auto it like the above command?

Or just ....

#include <Process.au3>
_RunDOS ( $sCommand )

Hi, thanks for hte replies.

I'm just trying the RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & "commandName" but I dont think im' doing it right as its not working.

heres ma code

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & '"move.exe /y"' & $TEMPFOLDER & "\Desktop" & $DESTINATION & "\Desktop")

I tried to 'write' it similar to my xcopy command but that must be wrong.

thanks

EDIT: Also I just tried this but this didnt work either

RunWait('move.exe "' & $TEMPFOLDER & '" "' & $DESTINATION & "\Desktop" & '" /y', @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)

am632,

"Move" is a OS internal command and not an exe file.

To see a list of internal commands, open a command prompt, then type and enter: help

; example

Local $TEMPFOLDER = 'C:\SourceFolder', $DESTINATION = 'C:\DestinationFolder'

RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c move /y "' & $TEMPFOLDER & '" "' & $DESTINATION & '"', '', @SW_HIDE)
