Problems Issuing Run Cmd

Recommended Posts

Guest Bazza

I'm new to AutoIt v3 and I'm trying to run a complied script utilising the RunAsSet / Run cmds to execute a pgm using a Admin A/C on WinXP Pro.

The pgm shortcut (will probably wrap) :

"D:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Deskjet Assistant\Bin\Browser.exe" -s"dugout:///dugout_home.html" -p"3420" -l"enu"

Startup Dir :

"D:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Deskjet Assistant\Bin"

So I tried the following Run cmd :

Run("D:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Deskjet Assistant\Bin\Browser.exe" -s"dugout:///dugout_home.html" -p"3420" -l"enu", "D:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Deskjet Assistant\Bin")

It fails with Unknown Function name.

It seems to fail on the '-' immediately after pgm ( ...\Browser.exe -s...).

How to I get the above to work correctly?

Do you need all those quotes? If so your missing double quotes...Try this....

Run("""D:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Deskjet Assistant\Bin\Browser.exe"" -s""dugout:///dugout_home.html"" -p""3420"" -l""enu""", "D:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\HP Deskjet Assistant\Bin")

Thanks, worked AOK.

I did try both adding extra quotes and/or removing some before posting here. What I didn't try was putting quotes around the quotes !!!

Thanks very muchly
