hi all,

I am trying to run test.exe with these parameters:

test.exe -di -idedir=scriptdirfilesides -p=scriptdirfilesscanlogs%computername%.log

here is what I have but it is not working:

RunWait (@ScriptDir & 'files\CLI\TEST.EXE -di ' & 'idedir=' & @ScriptDir & 'files\IDEs ' & '-p=' & @ScriptDir & 'files\ScanLogs\%computername%.log'

oops I made a typo in my first post

the correct syntax is

test.exe -di -idedir=scriptdirfilesides -p=scriptdirfilesscanlogs%computername%.log

when I typed (scriptdir) I meant autoit's (@scriptdir) just for a reference to explain what I was trying to accomplish

RunWait (@ScriptDir & '\files\CLI\SAV32CLI.EXE -di -idedir=' & @ScriptDir & '\files\IDEs -p=' & @ScriptDir & '\files\ScanLogs\test.log')

OR

RunWait("test.exe -di -idedir=" & @ScriptDir & "\files\ides -p=" & @ScriptDir & "\files\scanlogs\" & @ComputerName & ".log")

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.

You'd add it the same way that @ScriptDir was added in the above examples I posted. Separate the command line string from the variables just like you separate the string from the macros.
