RunWait command on Windows 8

Recommended Posts


I am testing my scripts on Windows 8 Release Preview (which I am guessing isnt supported by AutoIT yet).

Most of it all seems to be working fine except for Run and RunWait commands used to kick off an exe.

I can get the exe to start by doing

RunWait(@comspec & "/c c:\prog\CLI.exe" , "c:\windows\system32", @SW_SHOW)

but not

RunWait("c:\prog\CLI.exe") - Which works on all other OS's.

Has anyone else come across this problem and found a way to get it working?

I can't test it, but what is the problem if this:

RunWait(@comspec & "/c c:progCLI.exe" , "C:\Windows\System32\", @SW_SHOW)


You can use @OSVersion:

$var = "c:progCLI.exe"

If @OSVersion = "Win_8" Then
RunWait(@comspec & "/c " & $var, @WindowsDir & "system32", @SW_SHOW)

I think dev check it out when RTM goes out
