using " in a command

6 posts in this topic

I am trying to create a service using the sc copmmand

The command itself will be

sc create " IT Backup" binPath= " & "$binpath"& " start="system"

$binpath is the path to the program C:\Program Files (x86)\ folder\file.exe and I am using the _rundos command to execute the command

in dos the full commmand is

sc create " IT Backup" binPath= "C:\Program Files (x86)\ folder\file.exe" start="system"

AS you can see I need to add a few " into the command itself but I don't know how to.

Thanks

look here under Strings: http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/intro/lang_datatypes.htm

In short, you'll need to mix them, single for declaring your string and doubles in the SC command.

Hello 4your,

either you include your double-quotes in single quotes:

$string = 'There are "many quotes" here!'

Or you double the double-quotes:

$string = "There are ""many quotes"" here!"
