[Solved] Folder name with *.* in cmd

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi guys, i need you help, again :D

I have a folder that changes everytime the name. Basically is:

test-test-123456789

The name test-test is equal everytime, the number 123456789 changes.

The problem is this: i have to use cmd for build a file in this directory. It's a simple script to avoid the MAX_LENGHT of cmd ( max 256 character limit )

The directory is:

@workingdir & "\test-test-123456789\build\test.sln

This is the script:

$var1 = "cd Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319"
$var2 =
$var3 = @WorkingDir & $var2 & "\build\test.sln"
Run(@ComSpec)
Send(".cd C:\")
Send("{ENTER}")
Send($var1)
Send("{ENTER}")
Send($var3)

I don't know how to set $var2, because the name changes everytime.

I have also the same problem with directory of Framework ( v4.0.30319 ), but if i know how to set the variable for test-test i can apply for .NET directory

Thanks for support

Opt("ExpandEnvStrings", 1)    ;0=don't expand, 1=do expand
Opt("ExpandVarStrings", 1)    ;0=don't expand, 1=do expand
Run(@ComSpec)
winwaitactive("[class:ConsoleWindowClass]")
; change to frameworkdir
Send("cd %windir%Microsoft.NETFrameworkv{Tab}{ENTER}")

Thanks for answer, the first part work fine :D

But the second not, because it will be:

C:WINDOWSMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv4.0.30319>MSBuild C:Documents and SettingsWindows XpDesktoptest-test-ffd119cbuildtest.sh

I need only 1 line, if you can help i'll be grateful

I'll update the script:

Opt("TrayIconHide", 1)
Opt("ExpandEnvStrings", 1)  ;0=don't expand, 1=do expand
Opt("ExpandVarStrings", 1)  ;0=don't expand, 1=do expand

$var1 = "test-test-ffd119c"
$var2 = "MSBuild" & " " & @WorkingDir & $var1 & "buildtest.sln"
Run(@ComSpec)
winwaitactive("[class:ConsoleWindowClass]")
Send("cd %windir%Microsoft.NETFrameworkv{Tab}{ENTER}")
Send($var2)

Work, but i need to set the variable for part "ffd119c" becouse it changes every update.

How to set this variable?

      Hello I would like to know if there is a way to return a sentence in cmd when I launch from it (because I add arguments).
      For example, diskpart.exe which help to manage the key and hdd connected, when you launch it with the parameter "/f" the app return a sentence saying that it don't recognize the parameter "/f" and it return the sentence in the cmd where i started the application, not a new one.
      That's what I want to do but I couldn't find anything that would solve my problem on internet and on AutoIt like ConsoleWrite / ConsoleWriteError (don't work).
       
      Thanks

      I'm attempting to capture the output from the command line tool PSEXEC. I'm using AutoIT to run an instance of PSEXEC against a remote PC to audit Local Admins in my environment using net.exe (C:\Windows\System32> net localgroup administrators). However the usual trick I use to capture command line output does not appear to work well with PSEXEC, as the bottom portion of the output is missing from the return. Any ideas or recommendations are greatly appreciated.  
       
      Here is what I'm working with: 
      ;This script will read from a list of hosts and report who has local admin privileges on the machine #RequireAdmin Global $fileName = @ScriptDir & '\test.txt' ;hostlist, one host per line readHostList() ;Read list of hosts Func readHostList() Local $file = FileOpen($fileName, 0) While 1 $line = FileReadLine($file) If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop ConsoleWrite($line & @CRLF) ;MsgBox(0,0,$line) getLocalAdmins($line) WEnd FileClose($file) EndFunc ;run PSEXEC to list local admins Func getLocalAdmins($remotePC) Local $testFile = @ScriptDir &'\test234.txt' FileOpen($testFile, 1) Local $psexec = 'psexec \\' & $remotePC & ' net localgroup administrators' FileWriteLine($testFile, _RunCmd($psexec) ) FileClose($testFile) EndFunc ;Used to return CLI output Func _RunCmd($sCommand) Local $nPid = Run(@Comspec & " /c" & $sCommand, @SystemDir, @SW_Hide, 8), $sRet = "" If @Error then Return "ERROR:" & @ERROR ProcessWait($nPid) While 1 $sRet &= StdoutRead($nPID) If @error Or (Not ProcessExists ($nPid)) Then ExitLoop WEnd Return $sRet EndFunc  
      ## If i manually run the command on the remote PC via PSEXEC I will get the following output:

      Hello,
      I compiled a script I made that takes a command line parameter (the version of a .msi installer) when launched. The script was compiled with the /console option. The script (.au3) works fine but the executable returns  the following error:  
      Error: array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded

      Hi everyone.

      I'm currently working a program that constantly prints out log files through "consolewrite" and the "#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y" wrapper.

      Part of this program requires me to run a batch script.

      My issue is the batch script launches from the same window as consolewrite. I need the batch file to be launched through a different window as currently this causes an issue with the logs (which need to be very precise) but also causes the batch file to produce some funny behavior...

      Does anyone know how I can force the file to run on a second DOS window?

      Thanks in advance!!!
       
      Edit: Im using the "run" command if that helps. I tried "shellexecute" but that seemed to not launch the batch scripts at all.
