! is reserved in the Send() function -- it means ALT

To send your string raw you must write it like this

Send ($command, 1)

so how would I use $command in RunWait, as it doesnt have the raw flag?

What is $password getting set to?

Also, you should be using an input control (GUICtrlCreateInput) instead of an edit control because an edit control can have more than one line by default.

I cant see why RunWait can fail on this. Go and try it, I think it should no issue with ! character

$password = !SQLPassword.

it doesnt seem to work but the dos window is closing before I can read the output, it may be another issue.

is there a way I can make the command window stay - or - capture the output, Im reading about StderrRead - but im a bit lost
