Dear Jefrey,

Many Thanks,

Let me share a version of some of your examples trying to get StdOut from ConsoleWrite in Uncompiled scripts

save this as 01_child.au3

#include "cmdline.au3"

Local $Output = _CmdLine_Get('color')
MsgBox(0, "", $Output)

save this as 01_main.au3

#include <Constants.au3>

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will return "white" if you run the script in one of these ways
(quotes are optional but mandatory if you're going to use spaces)
#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Local $sFilePath = '"' & @ScriptDir & '\01_child.au3"'
RunWait(@AutoItExe & " " & $sFilePath & ' -color "white"')

RunWait(@AutoItExe & " 01_child.au3" & ' -color white')

RunWait(@AutoItExe & " 01_child.au3" & ' --color white')
RunWait(@AutoItExe & " 01_child.au3" & ' /color white')

$iPID = Run(@AutoItExe & " /AutoIt3ExecuteScript " & "01_child.au3" & ' /color "white cafe"', "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
Local $sOutput = ""
$sOutput = StdoutRead($iPID)
MsgBox(0, "Stdout Read", "Stdout Read: " & @CRLF & $sOutput)
ConsoleWrite($sOutput & @CRLF)


And this could be for example 04:

create 04_child.au3 in the same way as explained above

and save below code as 04_main.au3

#include <Constants.au3>

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Will return "You want: coffee beer  and you do not want: vodka wine  but you did not tell me if you want: soda juice" if you run:
    script.exe +CB -VW
#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

;Local $sFilePath = '"' & @ScriptDir & '\04_child.au3"'
;Local $iPID = Run(@AutoItExe & " /AutoIt3ExecuteScript " & $sFilePath & ' +CB -VW', "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
Local $iPID = Run(@AutoItExe & " /AutoIt3ExecuteScript " & "04_child.au3" & ' +CB -VW', "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

;This would be if compiled:
;Local $iPID = Run(@ComSpec & " /C 04_child.exe +CB -VW", @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)

Local $sOutput = ""
$sOutput = StdoutRead($iPID)
MsgBox(0, "Stdout Read", "Stdout Read: " & @CRLF & $sOutput)
ConsoleWrite($sOutput & @CRLF)
