AutoIt3ExecuteLine can't find a function

7 posts in this topic

I'm just trying to replicate the example in the documentation and I receive 'Error: Unknown function name.'  If I write the function into a script and call the script, it runs fine.

PeteVonCrete,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums. :)

As my crystal ball is currently away being polished, the name of the function would be a great help, as would the actual line you are using to call it. And what AutoIt version are you running? ;)

Here's the code

autoit3 /AutoIt3ExecuteLine "Msgbox(4096, ''Hello World'', ''Hi'')"

Double quotes around function call and double-single quotes within, around the parameters.

If I just write

Msgbox(4096, "Hello World", "Hi") to test.au3 and call test.au3, it runs fine.  In this case I'm using double quotes around the parameters.

PeteVonCrete,

You need the full path to AutoIt3 - unless it is on your path - and I get it to work with double quotes around the entire line (so DOS recognises it as a single item) and single quotes around the parameters: :)

M:\Program\Autoit3\AutoIt3.exe /AutoIt3ExecuteLine "MsgBox(4096, 'Hello World', 'Hi')"

Thanks.  The single quotes did the trick.  I did have autoit3 in my path.
