Command Line Parameters

6 posts in this topic

Hi, I have a small problem with typing parametr in command line

My working code is:

Run(@comspec & ' /c "C:\Users\G514204\Desktop\Capture2Text\Capture2Text.exe " '  & $x11  & " " &  $y11 & " " & $x21 & " " & $y21 & " " & ' output.txt', "",@SW_MINIMIZE )


But I need instead output.txt to set different path like :"C:\Users\G514204\Desktop\Results\output.txt". Double quotes are necessary, $x11, $y11... are coordinates. In shorcut on desktop in field Target is written: C:\Users\G514204\Desktop\Capture2Text\Capture2Text.exe 369 510 715 558 "C:\Users\G514204\Desktop\AutoIt Results\output.txt"

Can anyone give me some advice? I will be very grateful.

Try this.

Run(@comspec & ' /c "C:\Users\G514204\Desktop\Capture2Text\Capture2Text.exe" '  & $x11  & " " &  $y11 & " " & $x21 & " " & $y21 & " " & ' "C:\Users\G514204\Desktop\AutoIt Results\output.txt"', "" , @SW_MINIMIZE)

This gives you a command line like this:

C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /c "C:\Users\G514204\Desktop\Capture2Text\Capture2Text.exe" 1 1 1 1  "C:\Users\G514204\Desktop\AutoIt Results\output.txt"

With some DOS (Console programs) you need to provide a working directory, so I often have to do something like the following.

Run(@comspec & ' /c Capture2Text.exe '  & $x11  & " " &  $y11 & " " & $x21 & " " & $y21 & " " & ' "C:\Users\G514204\Desktop\AutoIt Results\output.txt"', "C:\Users\G514204\Desktop\Capture2Text" , @SW_MINIMIZE)

      Hi!
      I'm triying to get the session id to close automatically a RDP session.
      I tried doing this:
      #RequireAdmin #include <Constants.au3> $DOS = Run('C:\Windows\System32\query.exe user', "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) ;Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'Query User', "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) ;Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'quser', "", @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) ProcessWaitClose($DOS) $Message = StdoutRead($DOS) MsgBox(0,'',$Message) But the $Message is always empty, if I execute any of these commands in a cmd window, it works
      Any idea on why is this falling? there is another way to get this info?
       
      PS: Sorry for my english, i'm not native.

      Good morning AutoIt community!
      Today, I'm here to ask you if you know how to run an .exe from cmd.exe ( Command Prompt )...
      My intention is to read a .ini file where I store an information that has to be included in the shell, and run an .exe with that information...
      I'll give you an example
      Local $aFileCartellaAuditCopy = _FileListToArray($sPercorsoAuditCopy, "*.txt") If @error Then MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante la lettura della lista dei file nella directory" & @CRLF & $sPercorsoAuditCopy & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error) Return False Else Local $iPID = Run("cmd.exe" & ' /k "C:\Users\Portatile-60\Desktop\HmiCheckLogIntegrity.exe" "C:\Users\Portatile-60\Desktop\AuditTrailDosaggio0_20170327_151335_DOSAGGIO_PW_01.txt"') ; & " /k " & '"' & $sHmiCheckLogIntegrity & '"' & " " & '"' & $sPercorsoAuditCopy & "\" & $aFileCartellaAuditCopy[1] & '"', "", @SW_SHOW, $STDOUT_CHILD) Return True EndIf This code is in a function, that returns False if it can retrive at least a file from the path stored in the .ini file...
      Else
      I would like to run the Command Prompt with the .exe and with a parameter of that .exe, but it seems to not work properly.

      Could please anyone tell me why?

      Thanks

      Hi guys,
      This is probably an obvious one, but I really don't use this command at all so am hoping you can spot my mistake.
      I'm running a powershell script on a schedule with the following script in a function, the function is being called in a loop, but the console process is not closing in the background and I end up with a bunch of console windows running in the background:
      Run(@comspec & ' /k PowerShell.exe -STA -NonInteractive -ExecutionPolicy ByPass -Command "& ''Z:\Powershell\365\GetNextDetails.ps1'' "', "", @SW_HIDE) Thanks!

      Hi.
      Local $sPDFtk = FileGetShortName(@ScriptDir & "\pdftk.exe") Local $sInputPDF = FileGetShortName(@ScriptDir & "\Prodis_Test.pdf") Local $sSig_1 = FileGetShortName(@ScriptDir & "\Sig_1.pdf") Local $sTempPDF = FileGetShortName(@ScriptDir & "\Prodis_Test_TEMP.pdf") $iSuccess = ShellExecuteWait($sPDFtk, $sInputPDF & " stamp " & $sSig_1 & " output " & $sTempPDF, "", "", @SW_HIDE) @ScriptDir is "H:\_Conrad lokal\Downloads\AutoIt3\_COX". As you can see there is a space in the path.
      I know that ShellExecuteWait is working with FileGetShortName at the filename. It seems to me that I can't pass the parameters that way. But without FileGetShortName it's not working too.
      Ideas? Regards, Conrad
