_RunDos Problem

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am trying to use _RunDos and I have tested my command string as a batch file and it runs fins but _RunDos seems to do nothing. I have looked at the documentation and searched the forums but as far as I can tell this should work.

The $cmd string would be:

"C:\Program Files\PDF2TIFF\mogrify" -format TIF -density 300x300 "C:\Documents and Settings\bjd2483\My Documents\BIN\001.pdf"

$cmd = '"C:\Program Files\PDF2TIFF\mogrify" -format ' & $NewExt & ' -density 300x300 -compress Group4 -type bilevel -monochrome ' & ' "' & $FileLoc & '\' & $file & '"'
                

                
FileClose($search)
_RunDos($cmd)

Thanks,

Berkeley

Hi Berkeley,

I can't see any error in your code.

The only thing I would change is:

-monochrome ' & ' "' & $FileLoc & '\' & $file & '"'

to

-monochrome "' & $FileLoc & '\' & $file & '"'

Maybe you want to put a MsgBox Or a ConsoleWrite before the _RunDOS, then you might e able to see an error in your Variables.

:)

Before I posted I actually used FileWrite to make a batch file and then run it and the batch file ran fine. Your clean up is a good idea and I changed that.

$cmd = '"C:\Program Files\PDF2TIFF\mogrify" -format ' & $NewExt & ' -density 300x300 -compress Group4 -type bilevel -monochrome "' & $FileLoc & '\' & $file & '"'
                

                ;MsgBox(0, "", $cmd)

                ;$bat = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\test.bat",1)
                ;FileWrite($bat,$cmd)
                FileClose($search)
                _RunDos($cmd)
                
                ProcessWaitClose("mogrify.exe")

figured it out.

can' figure out why but it wanted quotes around the entire command line

$cmd = '"C:\Program Files\PDF2TIFF\mogrify" -format ' & $NewExt & ' -density 300x300 -compress Group4 -type bilevel -monochrome "' & $FileLoc & '\' & $file & '"'
                $qcmd = '"' & $cmd & '"'

                _RunDOS($qcmd)
