Exit code + StdoutRead/StderrRead

Recommended Posts

therks

Is there any way to retrieve the exit code from a process while also being able to use StdoutRead/StderrRead?

Have a look at this example that pulled from this and edited.

Example.au3

#include <Constants.au3>
#include "ProcessExitCode.au3"
 
$iPid = Run(@ComSpec & ' /c dir /g', @WindowsDir, @SW_SHOW, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
$hHandle = _ProcessGetHandle($iPid)
ShowStdOutErr($hHandle)
$iExitCode = _ProcessGetExitCode($iPid)
_ProcessCloseHandle($hHandle)
MsgBox(0, "Program returned with exit code:", $iExitCode)
 
$iPid = Run(@ComSpec & ' /c dir', @WindowsDir, @SW_SHOW, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
$hHandle = _ProcessGetHandle($iPid)
ShowStdOutErr($hHandle)
$iExitCode = _ProcessGetExitCode($hHandle)
_ProcessCloseHandle($hHandle)
MsgBox(0, "Program returned with exit code:", $iExitCode)
 
Func ShowStdOutErr($l_Handle, $ShowConsole = 1)
    Local $Line, $tot_out, $err1 = 0, $err2 = 0
    Do
        Sleep(10)
        $Line = StdoutRead($l_Handle)
        $err1 = @error
        $tot_out &= $Line
        If $ShowConsole Then ConsoleWrite($Line)
        $Line = StderrRead($l_Handle)
        $err2 = @error
        $tot_out &= $Line
        If $ShowConsole Then ConsoleWrite($Line)
    Until $err1 And $err2
    Return $tot_out
EndFunc   ;==>ShowStdOutErr

Thanks, that works perfectly. And I can use _WinAPI_OpenProcess() and _WinAPI_CloseHandle() from the WinAPI.au3 include. Sorry for the horrendous reply time, I don't get back here often.

This a simpler quick and dirty way

FileDelete("C:\temp\errorlevel.txt")

$file = fileopen(@TempDir & "\CMD.bat",2)
FileWrite($file,"start /wait c:\temp\test2.exe" & @CRLF)
FileWrite($file,"echo %errorlevel% > C:\temp\errorlevel.txt" & @CRLF)
FileClose($file)

$PID = run(@TempDir & "\CMD.bat")


While ProcessExists($PID)
wend

$file = fileopen("C:\temp\errorlevel.txt",0)
msgbox(0,"",fileread($file))
fileclose($file)

      So I just got a new computer, and instantly went and installed Autoit onto it. I selected run script as default action when clicking on an au3 file, however every time I do this it opens the script in the editor. I can from there run the script no problem.
      I've tried reinstalling and checking the settings by hitting "Ctrl+1" and have confirmed it is set to run, but yet it just continues to open in the editor.
      Any ideas why this is happening or how to solve?
      New system is windows 10, old was windows 7

      Hi AutoIters!
       
      Im trying to launch a .exe file that is nested within the program files (x86) folder structure. i have already used the standard RunAs Syntax and found that it fails to launch the application. I have switched to Run and that seems to work. My issue is I have to use RunAs as the applicaton would need to run under a completely different account. The Current logged in user is a Local User on the machine, however, the application must be run as a domain user. The Machine is domain connected.
       
       have tried the following:
      RunAs("username","logonpassword", $RUN_LOGON_PROFILE, "D:\Program Files (x86)\Vendor\Application Name\Exe Location\Executable.exe") The above fails to launch, there are no errors or syntax issues, it just does nothing when the variables are replaced for the correct values.
      I did the same using the Run command
      Run("D:\Program Files (x86)\Vendor\Application Name\Exe Location\Executable.exe") That seems to work fine, but runs in local user context. Any thoughts? Could it be a local Machine rights issue? Or have i missed something glaring in my script

      Hey Guys,

      I have a (i think) simple question, but i can't seem to get the answer though the help-files.
      Hope that you can help me with this issue.
      - I am opening a SSH Connection with the following function
      Func _Connect($session,$usr,$pass) $exec = @ScriptDir & "\PLINK.EXE" If Not FileExists($exec) Then _Err("PLINK.EXE Not Found!",0) $pid = Run($exec & " -load " & $session & " -l " & $usr & " -pw " & $pass, @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE, 0x1 + 0x8) ;Run SSH.EXE If Not $pid Then _Err("Failed to connect",0) $currentpid = $pid ;$rtn = _Read($pid) ;Check for Login Success - Prompt ;MsgBox(48,"","1") ;sleep(5000) ;Wait for connection Return $pid EndFunc - This will connect to a CMS Server with a vt100 interface where a dynamic report is generated every 20 seconds.
      - Then i will read the contents with the following Function
      Func _Read($pid) $SSHREADTIMEOUT = 0 If Not $pid Then Return -1 Local $dataA Local $dataB Do $SSHREADTIMEOUT += 1 $dataB = $dataA sleep(100) $dataA &= StdOutRead($pid) If @error Then ExitLoop Until ($dataB = $dataA And $dataA And $dataB) OR $SSHREADTIMEOUT == 50 Return $dataA EndFunc This all goes correctly, but i can only read the contents once.
      When i try to read the contents again i get nothing.
      Maybe because the CMS isn't changing, but the values in the report is changing every 20 seconds.
      I need to somehow read al of the contents every time i perform a Read action, but how?
      Yes, i can use it in a While loop, but also then i get nothing or a small line of text and not the whole report.
       
      Any Idea?
       
      Thanks Guys!
       
      --Edit--
      I have fixed the problem by changing the terminal session to a vt220 session.
      The only problem now is that i want to send the: "Data link escape" command and that is something i cannot fix,.
      I have tried;
      StdinWrite($Pid,Hex(0x10)) StdinWrite($Pid,Chr(16)) StdinWrite($Pid,{DLE}) But nothing seems to work.  
      -- Edit-2 --
      Guys, fixed that too!
      Forgot to add the number '5' to actually execute the assignment.
      So fixed it by using;
       
      StdinWrite($Pid,Chr(16)) StdinWrite($Pid,"5")
      Thanks for reading with me

      Hello
      i have searched a lot about how to run external programs with the administrator privileges without the script running with administrator privileges using autoit
      But all my attempts failed
      Finally, today I found the VBS function doing this task
      I immediately transferred it to our beloved language (autoit) and i decided to share it with you
      i hope you like it
      This is a simple example about how to use the function

      runAsAdmin("cmd.exe", "/c @echo off & cls & echo test & pause", "c:\", @sw_show)
      this is the function

      func runAsAdmin($program, $parameters = "", $workingDir = @workingDir, $show = "") local $oShell = OBJCreate("Shell.Application") if isOBJ($oShell) then local $result = $oShell.ShellExecute($program, $parameters, $workingDir, "runas", $show) else $result = false endIf return $result endFunc

      Hello,
      to provide an easy to use starter to capture traffic on all NICs found, I can successfully get all the interfaces of TSHARK.EXE (the command line version that's automatically installed along with wireshark) with this script:
      #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> $TS_WD = "C:\Program Files\Wireshark" $TS_exe = $TS_WD & "\tshark.exe" if not FileExists($TS_exe) Then MsgBox(48,"Fatal Error","No Wireshark Commandline Tool ""TSHARK.EXE"" found:" & @CRLF & _ $TS_exe) Exit EndIf $DString = "" $PIDGetIFs = Run($TS_exe & " -D", $TS_WD, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_MERGED) While ProcessExists($PIDGetIFs) $DString &= StdoutRead($PIDGetIFs) WEnd ; MsgBox(0,"IFs",$DString) $aNICs = StringSplit($DString, @CRLF, 1) _ArrayDisplay($aNICs) $RegExIF = "^(?:\d+\. )(\\.*?})(?: \()(.*?)(\))$" ; $1 = TSHARK Interface Name, $2 = Windows Interface Name ; ... get the names to run TSHARK with the appropriate interface string  
      When I run TSHARK.EXE using this line directly, I see a continuously growing number telling the number of packets captured so far.
      "C:\Program Files\Wireshark\tshark.exe" -i \Device\NPF_{AEB931E9-E5FA-4DA5-8328-D87BDF53805C} -b duration:300 -b files:600 -w "y:\TShark-Ringbuffer\LAN-Verbindung\TSHARK-Com-0317_17---LAN-Verbindung___.pcap" Using this script, I *DO* see the first output line "Capturing on 'LAN-Verbindung'", but I cannot get hold of the continuously growing number of packets captured so far.
      #include <AutoItConstants.au3> $WD="C:\Program Files\Wireshark" $CMD='"C:\Program Files\Wireshark\tshark.exe" -i \Device\NPF_{AEB931E9-E5FA-4DA5-8328-D87BDF53805C} -b duration:300 -b files:600 -w "y:\TShark-Ringbuffer\LAN-Verbindung\TSHARK-Com-0317_17---LAN-Verbindung___.pcap"' ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $CMD = ' & $CMD & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console $PID=Run($CMD,$WD,@SW_SHOW,$stderr_merged) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $PID = ' & $PID & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console $OutputAll="" While ProcessExists($PID) $output=StdoutRead($PID) $OutputAll&=$output ToolTip($OutputAll) if $output <> "" then ConsoleWrite("""" & $output & """" & @CRLF) Sleep(1000) WEnd ConsoleWrite("Process vanished" & @CRLF)  
      This is the output of SciTE, when I let TSHARK.EXE run for a short while, the "close" it's "box" ...
       
      --> Press Ctrl+Alt+Break to Restart or Ctrl+Break to Stop @@ Debug(10) : $CMD = "C:\Program Files\Wireshark\tshark.exe" -i \Device\NPF_{AEB931E9-E5FA-4DA5-8328-D87BDF53805C} -b duration:300 -b files:600 -w "y:\TShark-Ringbuffer\LAN-Verbindung\TSHARK-Com-0317_17---LAN-Verbindung___.pcap" >Error code: 0 @@ Debug(13) : $PID = 10948 >Error code: 0 "Capturing on 'LAN-Verbindung' " Process vanished  
      Howto catch the "growing-packet-number" TSHARK.EXE is writing continuously to the same "window position"???
