Running code from cmdline main root - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

I am new to AutoIT although MANY years ago I used a similar program called WinBatch to automate morning routines.

I am having some issues running code from the command line.

If I use this line in my script

Run ('cmd.exe /K "C:\start microsoft-edge:https://app.flowalgo.com/users/login"')

It opens the cmd screen but the directory is set to the directory where the script that is running is located.

C:\Autostart-Workstation\AMStart, and I need it to run from the C prompt

I can get it to open at the C prompt with

Run ('cmd.exe /K "cd\"')

Is there a way to force the code to run from the root prompt ("C:\")?

or how do I send the code to the cmd screen once I've changed to the root drive

Look at the help file. This is parameter #2 of Run().

Maybe?:

Run ('cmd.exe /K "C:\start microsoft-edge:https://app.flowalgo.com/users/login"',"c:\")

Probably don't use the C:\ at the start, since I'm assuming the second parameter "c:\" tells it to start there?

And is /c still the switch to autoclose the cmd screen?

Did you open that Helpfile to check the purpose of the parameters?

Why would you think this is any different from normal and did you simply try? 

Life can be simple ;)

Of course I eliminated the starting C:\ because I could see that wasn't necessary with the parameter and I added the /c switch and it works fine.

Thanks for leading me in the right direction.

I always answer the replies with any further questions, before I try new code, so hopefully I get an answer right after re-failing ((-;

      Hello,
      You guys helped me years ago to address logging in with a different account than the user.  I have sense modified it over the years due to laptops syncing with AD which is why you will see 3 different passwords.  So, this script snippet has worked for me in many things i have written but I am all the sudden having an issue getting it to work.  I have verified that the password i am using for the local user account is $pass.  Verified by doing a run as different user on Chrome and cut and pasted the password out of the script just to make sure i was not fat fingering something.  
      I get a fail back from RunAs every time.   
      Any chance you guys see something i am doing wrong?

      Hey I'm writing on a script which places a link in the context menu so you can choose several mp3 files and rename them using id3 tag udf and year / time stuff variables.
      My problem: I'm renaming the files through "FileMove", But HOW can I get the current directory of the chosen files only? I can't use stringsplit cz there are more than 1 delimiter "\". and I can't trim the string because the stringlength changes every time. How can I get ONLY the directory where the files from $cmdline chosen are?
