How to read cmd output

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi people, I'm trying to get DHCP scopes and MAC address via netsh, I tried with the following code but didn't get any output.  

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks and regards.

 

Local $buf
Local $pid = Run('C:\Windows\System32\netsh')
WinWaitActive("C:\Windows\System32\netsh.exe")
Send('netsh' & "{ENTER}")
Send('dhcp' & "{ENTER}")
Send("server "& $DHCPServer & "{ENTER}")
Send('show scope' & "{ENTER}")

Do
 $buf &= StdoutRead($pid)
Until @error

ConsoleWrite($buf)

Maybe something like this, I can't test it but it should work without all the Send commands.

Local $buf, $DHCPServer = "192.168.1.1"
Local $pid = Run('C:\WINDOWS\system32\netsh dhcp server ' & $DHCPServer & ' show scope')
;~ WinWaitActive("C:\WINDOWS\system32\netsh.exe")
;~ Send('netsh' & "{ENTER}")
;~ Send('dhcp' & "{ENTER}")
;~ Send("server "& $DHCPServer & "{ENTER}")
;~ Send('show scope' & "{ENTER}")
Do
 $buf &= StdoutRead($pid)
Until @error
ConsoleWrite($buf)

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.
