I cant get the following to run. I think its an issue with the quotes etc. round the setup.exe and adminfile. any help appreciated

run(@ScriptDir & '"setup.exe" /adminfile ' @ScriptDir & "profilesMAK-Passive.msp")

i think the problem is in your " around the setup. as it is the command would resolve like:

C:somefolder"setup.exe" /adminfile C:somefolderprofileMAK-Passive.msp

 

try

run('"' & @ScriptDir & 'setup.exe" /adminfile' & ' "' & @ScriptDir & 'profilesMAK-Passive.msp"')

 

which should resolve to:

"C:somefoldersetup.exe" /adminfile "C:somefolderprofilesMAK-Passive.msp"

Too much unnecessary quotes. This should be better + looks cleaner:

Run(@ScriptDir & 'setup.exe' & ' /adminfile' &  @ScriptDir & '\profiles\MAK-Passive.msp')

I am not sure if .msp will run with Run command, if it doesn't, use ShellExecute instead. ;)

Your Run statement is incorrect, as you are missing the backslash before "setup.exe"

The extra quotes are to cater for a @ScriptDir path that might have spaces in it like    "C:Program Filesmorestuffin here" :ph34r:

 

Stick with this Chiners_68

run('"' & @ScriptDir & 'setup.exe" /adminfile' & ' "' & @ScriptDir & 'profilesMAK-Passive.msp"')
