Unable to get WMIC line to run with RunWait

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to run a script that will run a WMIC line at login that will write the computer name and Internet Explorer version to a text file. Here is my code:

; Open file to be used to log PC Name and IE Version to
$IEVerList = FileOpen("\\lvccms5\scripts\IEVerCheck\IEVerList.txt", 1)

; Check if file opened for writing OK
If $IEVerList = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open installed file.")

; Run WMIC command to determine IE Version
$IEVer = RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c WMIC DATAFILE WHERE "Name='C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe'" Get Version', @TempDir, @SW_HIDE)
FileWriteLine($IEVerList,@ComputerName&"     "&$IEVer&@CRLF)

When it it gets to the RunWait line, I get an error that says:

lvccms5scriptsIEVerCheckIEVerCheck.au3 (17) : ==> Unable to parse line.: 
$IEVer = RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c WMIC DATAFILE WHERE "Name='C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe'" Get Version', @TempDir, @SW_HIDE) 
$IEVer = RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c WMIC DATAFILE WHERE "Name='C:^ ERROR
However, I am able to run the following line from a cmd prompt successfully:
WMIC DATAFILE WHERE "Name='C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe'" Get Version
I think I'm just missing how to handle the single and double quotes properly. Any ideas on how best to port this command line properly into AutoIT code?

FileGetVersion, @ComputerName, help  file.

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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
