I'm struggling to launch a VBS file via autoit using RunWait. Due to the nature of the deployment tool I am using for said script, I only know that the .vbs files will be in the same directory as my AutoIt-generated .exe, but not what that path will be. The path will look something like this:
This is generated during deployment and I have no way of predicting the path - therefore, I am not sure how to call back to "same directory" in order to successfully launch the .vbs.
This line is as close as I have gotten - this fires off the cmd window, but it closes immediately with out information, and the .vbs is not launched.
RunWait (@ComSpec & " /c" & 'cscript.exe WORKPLEASE.vbs ALL /Q /NoCancel') I thought /c might be the problem, but leaving out the /c element causes me not to even see the momentary CMD window flash by. Any help will be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance.
Suddenly a RunWait command has stop working after 2 years of no errors, issues, or problems. The code uses RunWait to start Plink.exe, a command-line remote connection tool similar to UNIX ssh. I'm using it to ssh to a linux (Centos) machine, run a Perl script, and redirect the output to a file on a PC running the AutoIt script.
$FilePath = "C:\AutoIT\LED" $FilePathPlus = $FilePath & "\plink.exe" $Code1 = RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $FilePathPlus & " -ssh -l root -pw ?????? 10.170.4.163 /usr/local/nagios/etc/led.pl > C:\AutoIT\LED\led.txt ", @SW_SHOW) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : @ComSpec & " /c " & $FilePathPlus & " -ssh -l root -pw ????? 10.170.4.163 /usr/local/nagios/etc/led.pl > C:\AutoIT\LED\led.txt " = ' & @ComSpec & " /c " & $FilePathPlus & " -ssh -l root -pw ?????? 10.170.4.163 /usr/local/nagios/etc/led.pl > C:\AutoIT\LED\led.txt " & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console The ConsoleWrite output when cut-n-pasted into a DOS box produces the expected file so I know it works. I've also tried many variations of the function moving, adding, and changing the " and ' (quote) marks. Also tried it without the @ComSpec macro and other related functions...e.g. ShellExecuteWait , etc.
The PC is a Windows 10 64bit and AutoIT is version 188.8.131.52.
Searching here and Google has not yielded any clues that helped.
Hi, I have a software which has a 'run file'-ie; when i double click on that file, the input file of the software is run by the software. I wish to double click/execute this run file using autoit. how do i achieve this. i opened the software and it shows the input file and run file in same folder, i will put my autoitscript file too in same location. how do i simulate double clicking the run file (using its file name, say - abc.run ). I entered the following lines to make software window active - it became active, dont know how to go forward
controlclick("program title","abc.run",1000,"primary",2) ; 1000 is ctrl id
Hope someone can help as quotes within quotes is always confusing. I am creating a silent install of printer software and want to call via runwait comspec line.
The call within a cmd line is below
samsung.exe /s /n"Samsung SL-M3220ND" /p"xxx"
xxx will be stored as a variable $PrinterIP which would be as example 10.10.10.20 I need to use a variable as i am doign this for a business and need it to be based on the store i install at that has a specific IP range.
I started with the below as 2 possibilities but no luck..
RunWait(@ComSpec & "/c " & "samsung.exe /s /n""Samsung SL-M3220ND"" /p""" & $PrinterIP ") RunWait(@ComSpec & "/c " & "samsung.exe /s /n'Samsung SL-M3220ND' /p'" & $PrinterIP '") but i cant get it to compile as i have errors on the line.. thanks in advance.
