Having A problem trying to run a .vbs script from an autoit .exe


Recommended Posts

I am trying to run a vbscript from inside one of my AutoIt .exe's but it wont seem to actually run the .vbs file. Need some help.

here is the line i am tyring to use.

RunWait(@SystemDir & "\wscript.exe " & "c:\tstools\PIHKR1.vbs")

What am i doing wrong?

Thanks

The vbscript isn't executed? AutoIt display a msgbox error? AutoIt script stay in the background?

Should the command line not be

RunWait(@SystemDir & "\wscript.exe c:\tstools\PIHKR1.vbs")

I could be very wrong.

Try:

RunWait(@Comspec & " /c cscript.exe c:\tstools\PIHKR1.vbs")

or to keep the command prompt open:

RunWait(@Comspec & " /k cscript.exe c:\tstools\PIHKR1.vbs")

Try:

RunWait(@Comspec & " /c cscript.exe c:\tstools\PIHKR1.vbs")

or to keep the command prompt open:

RunWait(@Comspec & " /k cscript.exe c:\tstools\PIHKR1.vbs")

Well it opens up dos and changes to the tstools dir but it still doesnt try and run the script? I verified that the script is there.

THanks

You could try

Send("#r")
Send(@SystemDir & "\wscript.exe c:\tstools\PIHKR1.vbs")
Send("{ENTER}")

Mmmh ...

... I don't understand where the problem is.

If you want to use CMD you have to use for windows programms the "start" option, like:

RunWait(@Comspec & " /c start wscript.exe c:\Test.vbs")

If you simple want ot run it, use

RunWait("WScript.exe C:\OrRepOp.vbs")

That should do it.
