Command line syntax

10 posts in this topic

Hi,

When I run the McAfee policies via command prompt it runs correctly, but if I use them as @Comspec, it does nothing.

Command Prompt:

cd C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework> cmdagent.exe /p

AutoIT:

RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework\cmdagent.exe /p"', "", @SW_Hide)

try this to ensure the workdir is correct and to bring the /p parameter outside of the double quotes:

RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework\cmdagent.exe" /p', "C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework", @SW_Hide)

Hi,

Just wanted to check how can I write the same command using Variables?

RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework\cmdagent.exe" /p', "C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework", @SW_Hide)

I tried as below but it does not work...

Global $McAfeeFramework = "C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework\cmdagent.exe /p"
RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c ' & $McAfeeFramework, "C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework", @SW_Hide)

DigDeep,

Use external single quotes to make the internal double quotes part of the string:

Global $McAfeeFramework = '"C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework\cmdagent.exe /p"'

Global $McAfeeFramework = '"C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework\cmdagent.exe" /p'
RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c ' & $McAfeeFramework, "C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework", @SW_Hide)

 

 

 

If your script frequently reuse the command line you should:
 

Global $McAfeeFrameworkEXE = "C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework\cmdagent.exe"
Global $McAfeeFrameworkDIR = "C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework"
RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "' & $McAfeeFramework &'" /p', $McAfeeFrameworkDIR, @SW_Hide)

;Or


Global $McAfeeFrameworkEXE = '"C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework\cmdagent.exe" '
Global $McAfeeFrameworkDIR = "C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework"
RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c ' & $McAfeeFramework &'/p', $McAfeeFrameworkDIR, @SW_Hide)

Trong,

Thanks for the correction - I really should have read the thread from the start.
