Command line with spaces in the path

Recommended Posts

EndFunc

I'm pulling my hair out. This is one of the most problematic things for me is escaping commandline stuff with autoit. Anyway, I keep trying to run this command for back up scheduling and it doesn't recognize my quotes. Unfortunately the path has a space. 

What exactly am I doing wrong?

$iSched = RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /k ' & '"D:\program files\tivoli\tsm\baclient\dsmcutil" inst scheduler /name:"ADSM Scheduler" /node:' & @ComputerName & ' /clientdir:"D:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\baclient" /optfile:"D:\program files\tivoli\tsm\baclient\dsm.opt" /password:' & @ComputerName & ' /validate:yes /autostart:yes /startnow:yes', "", @SW_SHOW)

 I get this error.

'D:program' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

 


EndFuncAutoIt is the shiznit. I love it.

Nevermind I was able to get it to work using the "Working directory" parameter of runwait. 

$iSched = RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /k ' & 'dsmcutil.exe inst scheduler /name:"ADSM Scheduler" /node:' & @ComputerName & ' /clientdir:"D:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\baclient" /optfile:"D:\program files\tivoli\tsm\baclient\dsm.opt" /password:' & @ComputerName & ' /validate:yes /autostart:yes /startnow:yes', "D:\program files\tivoli\tsm\baclient", @SW_SHOW)
