I am running run (command.exe > testing.txt) it says that ">" is an invalid parameter. When I run the same command from the command line it works.

AutoIt isn't Windows Command Line =D. However you can call the windows command line in AutoIt XD

Run(@Comspec & ' /c "command.exe" > "testing.txt"')

IIRC the space preceding the pipe character or the one following the pipe character or both have to be removed ;-)

That's why I started with "IIRC" - If I remember correctly. I always can be wrong :D

I am trying to use WUInstall to update windows but when I run the command it takes a while to complete but using

Run(@Comspec & ' /c "WUInstall.exe" > "testing.txt"') completes really fast and the result of testing.txt is a short description. I need for the command to complete.

I got it working but how do I add variables to this command

$computer=@ComputerName&".txt"

RunWait(@Comspec & ' /c "WUInstall.exe /search > $computer')

this saves it with a name of $computer instead of the computername.txt

RunWait(@Comspec & ' /c WUInstall.exe /search >' & $computer), this should work.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

That's not at all helpful. What gives you an error, and what is the error? If you expect to be helped, help us help you.

it's a PEBKAC issue...

Either learn to copy & paste or read the code Brew gave you carefully. Notice the placements of ampersands and quotes ( & and ' )

RunWait(^ ERROR

You mistyped the command line, there's supposed to be an ampersand inbetween the final ' and $computer.

RunWait(@Comspec & ' /c WUInstall.exe /search >' & $computer)

This is what it should look like, you had quotes in the wrong places, and you didn't connect the line correctly. BTW, this is what I gave you several posts back.
