Pause CMD Window(@ComSpec)

5 posts in this topic

How do I pause a command prompt window that is generated using @ComSpec after it has finished executing the DOS command? For example:

Run(@ComSpec " /c regedit.exe")

After opening the RegEdit window, the black CMD window will automatically close. How do I make it pause? Thank you!

Run(@ComSpec & " /k regedit.exe")

Append a "Pause" statement. DOS allows to concatenate commands.

I'm not 100% sure but try

Run(@ComSpec " /c regedit.exe & Pause")

Thank you! I'll try both suggestion. Didn't know the /c parameter meant 'close' haha.

Both method works!

The difference:

With the /k parameter, the window is closed by pressing by 'X' button.

With the 'Pause' added, any key can be pressed to close the window.

Thank you Xeno and water!
