Run batch file

Recommended Posts

For some reason I run

ShellExecute("C:\users\aq\desktop\bin\3 - Servertest.bat")

and all it does is open and close. Not suppose to happen.

Inside the batch file:

servertest.exe packt.dat

If I run Servertest.bat without autoit, The batch stays until I close it. Any suggestion?

Why use the batch file at all? Why not simply do something like this?

ShellExecute(<path to servertest.exe>, 'packt.dat')

Likely the workdir is different when ran manually?

The autoit will be outside of bin for example desktop. I tried

ShellExecute('\bin\servertest.exe', 'packt.dat')

but it doesn't work. "Unable to parse line"

asianqueen,

Try specifying the fully qualified path to the executable.

If for any reason you still want/need to call that batch file, add a "pause" command at the end of your batch. Then it won't just "open and close", but stay open so you can read any error messages your servertest application writes to the console.

that works too, but it closes the batch file after execute. I guess there's no way to keep the batch file open.
