How to pass command line arguments to a program(Python) from RunWait

Recommended Posts

I want to run a python script from autoit. 

I know we can do this with shellexecute or run , but this python script takes 3 cmd line arguments.

How to pass them from autoit script?

I tried many ways.

Following solution also not working 

e.g. 

RunWait( 'fullpath\Python.exe Scriptpath\ReadLog.py  -f "file.log" -k "key" -e "errMsg" ')

Found solution:

RunWait( 'fullpath\Python.exe ReadLog.py  -f "file.log" -k "key" -e "errMsg" ', 'Working_directory_path')

Try something like this:

RunWait( '"fullpath\Python.exe" "Scriptpath\ReadLog.py"  -f "file.log" -k "key" -e "errMsg" ')

Worked after adding the working directory optional parameter

RunWait( 'fullpath\Python.exe ReadLog.py  -f "file.log" -k "key" -e "errMsg" ', 'Working_directory_path')

      Hello,
      for a script to display PDF files I'd like to simply use the default program for PDF files, so I used "ShellExecute(<pdf-file-full-path>)" to open these files.
       
      The result for *SOME* of the workstations is, that the Adobe Reader starts up with asking for its language. (English/German). When starting AcroRd32.exe through "ShellExecute()", this "choose your language" dialog is showing up *ALWAYS*.
       
      Just to have mentioned it: Process Explorer is presenting this command line, it looks the same for both, PCs with and without that question "Choose Language? [English|German]"
      "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe" --channel=4680.0.860715181 --type=renderer "\\pc0009\Y_DRV_H\Daten\TIF\08\32\G000110832_Freigegeben.idw.pdf"  
      The next approach I thought of was to use Foxit Portable (instead of Acrord32.exe), started from a Network Drive, but it's starting up ugly slowly...
      So I tried to "Run()" instead to "ShellExecute()" the Adobe Reader. Now the result looks more stange, the "select your language" dialog shows up every now and then, but not always for the Win7 installations affected.
       
      If I place a "msgbox()" just in front of the "run()" command, it seems never to show this "select your language" dialog.
      If I take out this MsgBox() the "select your language" dialog shows up sometimes.
      When I "ClipPut()" the run command prior the "Run()" and paste that one to a CMD box, then it seems to *NEVER* happen, that this "select your language" dialog shows up.
       
      "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe" "\\pc0009\Y_DRV_H\Daten\TIF\08\32\G000110832_Freigegeben.idw.pdf" $AcroRead='"C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe"' $PDF='"Y:\Temp\DRV_H\Daten\TIF\33\85\153385_Freigegeben.dwg.pdf"' MsgBox(0,"Values",$AcroRead & @CRLF & $PDF,1) $MyCommand=$AcroRead & " " & $PDF ClipPut($MyCommand) Run($MyCommand)  
      It looks like, that this "--channel=... --type=renderer" parameters are always fact for the AcroRd32.exe instance, that is opening the PDF to be displayed. The Instance opening the "PDF Display GUI" seems to always be a child process of another AcroRd32.exe process.
       
      Any clue, what's going on "backstage" here? How to avoid this "Choose your language" dialog? Or maybe someone can mention a different "portable" PDF viewer, I could use for this purpose?  
      Any suggestions appreciated, regards, Rudi.

      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:
      c:\programdata\vendor\lots\of\folders\randomnumber
      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.

      Hello mates.
      I would like to share simple but very important function required durning code many *au3 files.
      Such as function is used by a few scripts developers on forum but most of users waste a lot of time to make his functions/tool free from errors and bugs.
      How is working?
      This function do not check errors like Scite debugger. You can be able to make something like call exceptions in Python.
      Think about this and think when you ran some code, no error but also do nothing. 0 information and you have to jump into own or other script to find out reason.
      Function: Updated 2018-02-04, 08:47 (fixed AutoIt problem with dedection @ScriptName)

      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 3.3.14.2.
      Searching here and Google has not yielded any clues that helped.

      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.
