9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

             Run("C:\S3_GUI\ncat\Home.bat")  ; This works as expected but flashes up unwanted command prompt
             Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & "C:\S3_GUI\ncat\Home.bat", "", @SW_HIDE) ; this doesn't work even with HIDE removed

echo off
Rem Check head is @ HOME..
echo !HH | ncat 192.168.1.6 80 > homerep

(ncat is 'safe' version of Windows banned netcat)

So what happens when you use:

Run("C:\S3_GUI\ncat\Home.bat", "", @SW_HIDE)

What happens when you change the /c to a /k so the cmd windows stays open and you have the opportunity to read any generated responses?

With or without @SW_HIDE makes no difference.

If I run the bat file from command line it works and produces the response file homerep.

Either Run command doesn't produce homerep.

Command window flashes up for a very brief period if @SW_HIDE isn't used.

You may have revealed the cause, Jos.

Cmd.exe is running in system32, not the directory where the ncat.exe and .bat files reside.

How to make cmd.exe work in my directory?

Just set the proper workdir ( current directory for the process) to the directory containing the ncat.exe or add the directory to the PATH.

I used FileChangeDir() which works but untidy :(

I'll use the PATH when it gets onto the final machine.

Or you could do as Jos said, and use the WorkingDir parameter of the Run command and see if that works.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
