Running a command via command prompt in AutoIt

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to run the following command through command prompt but for some reason I can't get it to work with AutoIt.

start /realtime /b "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation\VMWare.exe" -x "T:\VMs\RVM.vmx"

I've tried the following:

Run(@ComSpec & ' start /realtime /b "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation\VMWare.exe" -x "T:\VMs\RVM.vmx"')

I've also tried a fair few other variations but all of them just do nothing, a few variations like the following just load a command prompt but nothing is entered or done...

Run(@ComSpec & ' start /b "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation\VMWare.exe" -x "T:\VMs\RVM.vmx"')

Anyone have any suggestions to fix it so it runs?

Run($sServer & $sParms, $sWorkingDir)

No need to run any DOS Command.
