Good morning AutoIt community! :)
Today, I'm here to ask you if you know how to run an .exe from cmd.exe ( Command Prompt )...
My intention is to read a .ini file where I store an information that has to be included in the shell, and run an .exe with that information...
I'll give you an example :)

Local $aFileCartellaAuditCopy = _FileListToArray($sPercorsoAuditCopy, "*.txt")
If @error Then      
    MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante la lettura della lista dei file nella directory" & @CRLF & $sPercorsoAuditCopy & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error)
    Return False
Else
    Local $iPID = Run("cmd.exe" & ' /k "C:\Users\Portatile-60\Desktop\HmiCheckLogIntegrity.exe" "C:\Users\Portatile-60\Desktop\AuditTrailDosaggio0_20170327_151335_DOSAGGIO_PW_01.txt"') ; & " /k " & '"' & $sHmiCheckLogIntegrity & '"' & " " & '"' & $sPercorsoAuditCopy & "\" & $aFileCartellaAuditCopy[1] & '"', "", @SW_SHOW, $STDOUT_CHILD)
    Return True
EndIf

This code is in a function, that returns False if it can retrive at least a file from the path stored in the .ini file...
Else
I would like to run the Command Prompt with the .exe and with a parameter of that .exe, but it seems to not work properly.

Could please anyone tell me why?

Thanks :)

Hey @Subz, thanks for your quick reply :)
I did manage to run the .exe, and now I have to read the STDOut from the shell... ( By the way, I use IniReadSection(), but I didn't post that code ( because it's in another function, sorry :D
I can use StdoutRead() in a loop or... I don't know... I've never used that function before :D
Thank you again :)

@Subz
Sorry for my "confusion"... :) Read below :D 

@Jos
Happy to see you here :) I've managed to run the .exe as I said in the previous post, and know I have to read the content of the STDOut, in order to compare the result from the ".exe" I've launched, and do what I need to do :)


I tried in this way, but it returns blank "result":
 

Local $sSTDOutRead = ""
While 1
    $sSTDOutRead = StdoutRead($iPID)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
WEnd
MsgBox($MB_ICONINFORMATION, "", $sSTDOutRead) ; This returns blank MsgBox!

Thanks for you help guys :) 

EDIT: I've managed to correct the $sSTDOutRead with the "&" before the =...
@TheDcoder
I'll try it asap! Thanks :D

      Hello people, I have a script which calls CMD and executes the netstat command, but when I run it through SCITE the GUI opens but I have no output, How can I run the command as administrator?
      Here is my script so far
      #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiEdit.au3> #include <ScrollBarsConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #RequireAdmin Local $aWndPos Local $hWnd = GUICreate("Form2", 900, 420, -1, -1, Default + $WS_MAXIMIZE) GUISetBkColor(0xE4E4E4) Local $idFilemenu = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&File") Local $idExititem = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Exit", $idFilemenu) Local $idInput = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 210, 10, 660, 360) GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, $GUI_DOCKBORDERS) GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, Default, "COURIER NEW") Local $idButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("NetStat", 10, 10, 190, 25) GUICtrlSetResizing(-1, BitOR($GUI_DOCKLEFT, $GUI_DOCKTOP, $GUI_DOCKWIDTH, $GUI_DOCKHEIGHT)) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $idExititem Exit Case $idButton GUICtrlSetData($idInput, _CmdInfo() & @CRLF) _GUICtrlEdit_Scroll($idInput, $SB_SCROLLCARET) _GUICtrlEdit_Scroll($idInput, $SB_SCROLLCARET) EndSwitch WEnd Func _CmdInfo($_sCmdInfo = "netstat /b") Local $iPID = Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & $_sCmdInfo, "", @SW_HIDE, BitOR($STDERR_CHILD, $STDOUT_CHILD)) ; Wait until the process has closed using the PID returned by Run. ProcessWaitClose($iPID) ; Read the Stdout stream of the PID returned by Run. This can also be done in a while loop. Look at the example for StderrRead. Local $sOutput = StringReplace(StdoutRead($iPID), @CRLF & @CRLF, @CRLF) Local $sOutErr = StringReplace(StderrRead($iPID), @CRLF & @CRLF, @CRLF) Local $sReult = $sOutput <> "" ? $sOutput : $sOutErr Return $sReult EndFunc

      Hi there,
      maybe someone can help me.
      If automated a script that should xcopy from various paths (all within C:\*\...) to a external Disk (HDD). (Backup data of users who get new pcs win10)
      I tried it several times with windows 10 home/pro any clients and never got any failure. (after the testing was done)
      But when i tried to run it shortly ago on a windows 7  pro x64 client, the script started (as i saw in taskmanagr.exe) but i didn't performed any of the actions when i came down to the xcopy part.
      (in the systemtray, it showd the scipt to start, but it was marked as "paused" and i couldn't stop this. No plan why)
       i inserted/attached the script down here.
      Does anyone know why? any ideas?backup-scrp.au3
      PS:  the tray debug line just added by today (i re-try it tomorrow when i've set up another win7 client to test with)
      PPS: i know my coding-style isn't very optimized

      Hi There ! 
      I have a script here : 
       
      ;Launch CMD
      Run("C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe")
      sleep(2000)
      $cmdHandle = WinActivate("C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe")
      Sleep(2000)
      ;Sending document
      ControlSend($cmdHandle, "", "", "ftp" & @CRLF)
      ControlSend($cmdHandle, "", "", "open" & @CRLF)
      Sleep(2000)
      ControlSend($cmdHandle, "", "", "first command" & @CRLF)
      Sleep(2000)
      ControlSend($cmdHandle, "", "", "second-coomand" & @CRLF)
       
      first-command and second-command I can't provide cause it's internal. I have complied this .au3 file into an exe and it does the work. But I need to invoke this with Java. Java code I have tried is : 
       
          ProcessBuilder pb = new ProcessBuilder("C:\\Users\\username\\eclipse-workspace\\Examples\\src\\com\\own\\examples\\etc.exe");
          pb.start();
          Thread.sleep(5000);
       
      Through java it just launches the cmd and nothing happens after that. Please help !!

      I'm trying to drive a command prompt by sending instructions via a NamedPipe.
      This way you can (should) be able to send commands to the command prompt and at the same time "view" the result in the same window.
      This is not allowed if you run a command prompt with "opt_flag" parameters (redirected streams) because this will disable StdOut on the cmd itself.
      This small (trivial) snippet works for the first command sent to the cmd, but further submissions will fail.
      Maybe the problem is in how I use the run () command to start a new cmd with the StdIn redirect from the NamedPipe. It seems that the generated cmd will close automatically after the first reception of the command via NamedPipe.
      suggestions on how to make it work are welcome
      thanks
      #include <NamedPipes.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> ; Creates an instance of a named pipe Global $sPipeName = "\\.\pipe\pipename" Global $hPipe = _NamedPipes_CreateNamedPipe($sPipeName, 1, 1) MsgBox(0, "Debug", "Pipe created. Now open a CMD") ; run a cmd with only StdIn redirected (StdIn data incoming from a pipe) Global $hCMD = Run(@ComSpec & " /K cmd < " & $sPipeName & @CRLF, "c:\") ; ok? MsgBox(0, "Debug", "now Send a command to the cmd via a NamedPipe") _StdInPipeWrite("dir" & @CRLF) MsgBox(0, 'Debug', "further commands will fail" & @CRLF & "now send command 'dir c:\windows'") $sMessage = "Dir c:\windows" & @CRLF _StdInPipeWrite($sMessage) MsgBox(0, 'Debug', "send another command (will also fail)" & @CRLF & "now send command 'echo Hello'") _StdInPipeWrite("echo Hello" & @CRLF) MsgBox(0, "Debug", "end of test") ProcessClose($hCMD) Func _StdInPipeWrite($sMessage) ; =============================================================================================================================== ; This function writes a message to the pipe ; =============================================================================================================================== Local $iWritten, $iBuffer, $pBuffer, $tBuffer $iBuffer = StringLen($sMessage) + 1 $tBuffer = DllStructCreate("char Text[" & $iBuffer & "]") $pBuffer = DllStructGetPtr($tBuffer) DllStructSetData($tBuffer, "Text", $sMessage) If Not _WinAPI_WriteFile( _ $hPipe, _ ; ......

      Hey Everyone, I haven't been here in a while and recently picked up my old project. Still an FNG!
      To the point: I want to be able to push the button and either play an mp3, open a file, or open an exe program (all with the same button). The problem is that I don't know how to code for that at "case 1"
              Case 1                                                                                                                                             
                  Local $sRead = IniRead("config.ini", "Config", "One", "Default")                                
                  SoundPlay($sRead, @HotKeyPressed)                                                                     <-------------------------------
                  Run($sRead, @HotKeyPressed)                                                                                 <------------------------------- This 'Run' doesn't work even by itself!
      See code below for layout. If you need more information I will attach more code or answer any questions. Any help is greatly appreciated.
       
      Much Respect,
      Pike
       
      Func _HandleButton() $iClickCount += 1 $iTimer = TimerInit() AdlibRegister("CheckButtonPress", $CheckTime) EndFunc Func CheckButtonPress() If TimerDiff($iTimer) < $CheckTime Or $iTimer = 0 Then Return Switch $iClickCount Case 1 Local $sRead = IniRead("config.ini", "Config", "One", "Default") SoundPlay($sRead, @HotKeyPressed) Run($sRead, @HotKeyPressed) Case 2 MsgBox(0, "INFORMATION:", "Choose the file you want designated to this button") Local $sFileOpenDialog = FileOpenDialog(0, @ScriptDir & "\", "All (*.*)", $FD_FILEMUSTEXIST + $FD_MULTISELECT) If @error Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "No file(s) were selected.") EndIf Local $sFileName = InputBox("INFORMATION:", "Please Name Your File?" & @CRLF _ & @CRLF _ & "6 Characters or Less", "") IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\config.ini", "Config", "One", $sFileOpenDialog) IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\config.ini", "Config", "NameOne", $sFileName) EndSwitch $iClickCount = 0 AdlibUnRegister() EndFunc
