Hi,

I would like to install chocolatey packages (OneGet) via Autoit.

Manually without Autoit I would just open Powershell and use this command:

Install-Package -Name Firefox -Force

It also works with cmd (see attachment 1)

powershell.exe -Command Install-Package -Name Firefox -Force

With Autoit I tried the following code:

RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /k ' & 'powershell.exe -Command Install-Package -Name Firefox -Force', @SW_SHOW)

It doesnt work at all. I don't even see a cmd window.

When I add @SystemDir the Windows appears with the error in attechment 2.

Is there another way to run PowerShell Commands with Autoit?

I would like to avoid starting Powershell, waiting for the window, sending the command and sending Enter.

Thanks

You forgot the 2. parameter if you didn't know what to use just use '' or @scriptdir.

 

Btw.: soon is easter, a good time to eggsplore gardens, parks etc.

Ah right. That's why it worked with @SystemDir.

Now I am using @UserProfileDir since I am logged in as "Administrator".

I am still receiving the same error (red font in original post).

How can this be?
AutoIt uses the same command as I pasted to cmd!

Is there an other way to execute PowerShell commands with AutoIt?

Btw.: I am eggsploring AutoIt for now ;)

Hi.

1st of all: I have no experience at all with Powershell 5.0, Packet Handling is nothing I've ever used so far.

 

The message is telling ... keine Übereinstimmung für die angegebenen Suchkriterien und den Paketnamen "Firefox"

So it looks, that within the context something is not available, when started within a @comspec

Maybe one of the other commands from here might help to work out, what exactly is missing?

Get-Package -Source <string> [-ListAvailable] [-Updates] [-ProjectName] [-Filter <string>] [-First <int>] [-Skip <int>] [-AllVersions] [-IncludePrerelease] [-PageSize]

 

Regards, Rudi.

      Global Const $DIR_WA_FOLDER = @MyDocumentsDir & '\Whatsapp Extension' Global Const $DIR_SHORTCUT = @DesktopDir & '\WhatsappWeb.exe' Func _Create_Shortcut() Local $sMessage = "Creating shortcut " _Metro_SplashTextScreen(1, "", $sMessage) AdlibRegister("_Metro_LoopInProgress") If FileExists($DIR_WA_FOLDER) Then $iDelete = FileDelete($DIR_SHORTCUT) If $iDelete Then _FileWriteLog($LOG_INSTALLATION, "Debug: Desktop's shortcut is deleted.") Else _FileWriteLog($LOG_INSTALLATION, "Debug: Desktop's shortcut is not found. But, desktop's shortcut is still created.") EndIf If FileExists($DIR_WA_FOLDER & '\WhatsappWeb.exe') Then $iCreate = FileCreateShortcut($DIR_WA_FOLDER & '\WhatsappWeb.exe', $DIR_SHORTCUT) If $iCreate Then _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", "Desktop shortcut is now created!") _FileWriteLog($LOG_INSTALLATION, "Debug: Desktop's shortcut is created.")

      But after it created shortcut at desktop, I cannot execute the shortcut as it has no any response.
      Then I go try trigger the file at the source path @MyDocumentDir & '\Whatsapp Extension\WhatsappWeb.exe' and it work as expected.
      Then I go to check my log, and it shows:- (P/S: I already did trigger the function twice)
      2019-02-28 23:27:32 : Debug: Desktop's shortcut is not found. But, desktop's shortcut is still created. 2019-02-28 23:27:33 : Debug: Desktop's shortcut is created. 2019-02-28 23:28:40 : Debug: Desktop's shortcut is not found. But, desktop's shortcut is still created. 2019-02-28 23:28:41 : Debug: Desktop's shortcut is created. So based on my log shows, it failed to locate the shortcut, but it did exists there.
       
      P/S: This project is done developed weeks ago, every testing is passed. Is just somehow the executable cannot be execute.
       
       
      Any advise?

      Here is an existing AS400 PCOM script that I have: 
      #include-once
      #cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
       UDF Header Title: _PCOMM
       UDF Header Version: 0.1.0
       AutoIt Version: 3.3.8.1
       Author:         Jason S. - Jewelry Supply, Inc.
       Script Function: PCOMM UDF Header
                          For use with IBM AS/400 - IBM OS/400 - IBM System i - IBM i application system.
                          This PCOMM UDF Header targets ASW - an ERP application suite written in IBM's RPG language (yuck!),
                          although it will work for any AS/400 system and is not ASW specific.
                          PCOMM allows injection of keystrokes into the datastream of
                          a running terminal/console application ("Green Screen" Console Emulator).
                              - Assumes Session 'A' but can be overriden using the aswConnect() function.

          If StringInStr(aswGet($rownum, $colnum, $length), $page) Then
              Return 1
          Else
              Return 0
          EndIf
      EndFunc
      I would like to use it launch a connection to the AS400. I have an executable that I run with an hod file. Do I just need to run the exe and hod file then run the session connect function and send keys function to pass credentials?
