Passing A Variable To ShellExecute

3 posts in this topic

Hello, I've got a simple application which stores a path to an application like this:

$captureAppPath = "D:\Program Files Portable\FSCapture53\FSCapture53\FSCapture.exe"

I have been trying to execute the above application using ShellExecute as follows:

ShellExecute(FileGetShortName($captureAppPath))

However, the programs throws an error everytime like the one below:

ShellExecute($captureAppPath)
ShellExecute(^ ERROR
->14:17:50 AutoIT3.exe ended.rc:1
>Exit code: 1    Time: 2.156

Can anybody help me in understanding what I am doing wrong?

First you say you are running it like this

ShellExecute(FileGetShortName($captureAppPath))

then the error says it has been ran like this

ShellExecute($captureAppPath)

Which is it, pick one.

And for the record both ways work just fine for me.

I suggest you post a whole reproducer code.
