What should this be as this doesn't make much sense?

Should be something like:

$rootDir = "C:\automation"  ; assuming this is what you need c:\automation
Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & $rootDir & "\updatesource.pl",$rootDir )

I tried the above statements but did not work. The actual command in CMD looks like...

c:\automation>perl updatesource.pl

That doesn't look like a command but rather a capture of the command prompt and the command typed...... right?
So just copy that into the run statement:

$rootDir = "C:\automation"
Run(@ComSpec & " /c perl updatesource.pl",$rootDir )

Try changing /c to /k for testing in case of errors/issues so you can read them.

I tried with "k" to capture the output. The command prompt appears with directory displaying "C:\automation>"

It stops there. The next statement I was expecting was "perl updatesource.pl"

      Cambiar a español Hello friends, I need help with a problem I have, I want to know if there is any way to update a GUI already running, that is I have a GUI of a certain size and with a button I would like to enlarge it:
      example: $ form1 = GUICreate ("", 200,100,0,0)   When you press the button, the gui increases its size, and actuates the new size.
