running command-line programs?

Recommended Posts



Does the @ComSpec command replace the following for running command line programs?:

Run("RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL wuaucpl.cpl,,1")

and is @ComSpec universal for Win XP, Vista, Win 7?

Thanks for any input

I believe @ComSpec works on Win7, but I can't say 100% for sure. Here are two ways to start the control panel you listed:

RunWait(@COMSPEC & " /c Start control wuaucpl.cpl")


ShellExecute("control", "wuaucpl.cpl")

#include <ByteMe.au3>
