RunWait net start command

3 posts in this topic

Help! This is driving me nuts!

If I run the command

RunWait ('net start "symantec antivirus"', @SW_HIDE)

or

RunWait (@SystemDir & "\net.exe start " & '"symantec antivirus"', @AppDataCommonDir & "\Symantec\Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition\7.5\", @SW_HIDE)

or

RunWait (@Comspec & " /c " & "net start " & '"symantec antivirus"', @SW_HIDE)

or

RunWait (@Comspec & " /c " & "net start " & '"symantec antivirus"', @systemdir, @SW_HIDE)

BEFORE the TimerInit() and/or by itself, no problem. If it is run as in the script below, I get "unable to execute the external program, the directory name is invalid"

$t = TimerInit()
While TimerDiff($t) < 30000;do the following until half minute passes
    RunWait ('net start "symantec antivirus"', @SW_HIDE)
    If ProcessExists("RtvScan.exe") Then
    ExitLoop
    EndIf
WEnd
If Not ProcessExists("RtvScan.exe") Then
    MsgBox(48, "Error", "Unable to start Symantec Antivirus service!")
    Exit
    EndIf

Thanks! :evil::)

As far as I known the second parameter in Runwait is always the workingdir.

So try using:

$t = TimerInit()
While TimerDiff($t) < 30000;do the following until half minute passes
    RunWait ('net start "symantec antivirus"',"", @SW_HIDE)
    If ProcessExists("RtvScan.exe") Then
    ExitLoop
    EndIf
WEnd
If Not ProcessExists("RtvScan.exe") Then
    MsgBox(48, "Error", "Unable to start Symantec Antivirus service!")
    Exit
    EndIf
