run with @ComSpec not work in some cases

hello,

i do some complex tests about running exe with arguments using @ComSpec.

 

i worte this small function:

Func ComSpecSend($String,$WaitForReturn = 0)
    $DOS = Run(@ComSpec & " /c "&$String, "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
    If $WaitForReturn = 1 Then
        ProcessWaitClose($DOS)
        Return StdoutRead($DOS)
    EndIf
EndFunc

and i created this exe file for tests:

#include <array.au3>

If $CmdLine[0] > 0 Then
    _ArrayDisplay($CmdLine,"arguments:")
Else
    MsgBox(0,"","no arguments")
EndIf

after that i runned to that exe file with this way:

ComSpecSend('"D:\exe test.exe" "a b cde " fg      " " hikk"')

this test was failed and I do not know why.

when i tryed to open cmd in windows and send this line

"D:exe test.exe" "a b cde " fg      " " hikk"

 

 

then it worked.

so it must be something with @ComSpec and run()

this test:

ComSpecSend('"D:\exe test.exe" arg1 arg2 arg3')

Passed

and this test:

ComSpecSend('"D:\exe test.exe" arg1 arg2 "arg3"')

also failed.

With the normal cmd in windows it worked..

ok i solved the problem.

i was supposed to use ShellExecute ( "filename" [, "parameters")

I did not know well enough that function and i tried to use this function only in this way:

ShellExecute('"D:exe test.exe" parm1 parm2')

and it did not work..

I was supposed to look in the help file to know the function better.

Anyway, I think what I tried in the first post was supposed to work.

so i think that there is a bug that case and maybe to you need to know it

What failed in the code you posted in the first post, you never explained that? 


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.
