Problem with shutdown.exe /s /t

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am writing a small shut down program. I have a problem with getting shutdown.exe  /s /t  100   working.

If  I am running from a dos windows it is working fine.

The problem starts when i give it a parameter thru autoit.

I appreciate any and all help.

Thanks

Try :
Run("c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe /s /t 60", "", @SW_HIDE)
or :
Run(@ComSpec & " /c shutdown /s /t 60", "", @SW_HIDE)

Thanks for your reply.

What you gave me is working and it worked before.   In my program, however, I would like to use different time amounts, this is why I am using the input field.

When putting the time from the input field to the dos script that is where I am having problems. Maybe my description wasn't clear enough. 

Thanks

WEnd

@Tn60  : I added a regular expression so that you can also use 0 as a numeric value.

Edited by Musashi
Insert MsgBox with MB_OKCANCEL, add a RegEx

You are welcome :). Check the latest version, because I added a regular expression.

I will. I am curious about what did i do wrong.

In your original script (posting #1) you used the result of :

$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 32, 16, 105, 21)

for some further processing. However, GUICtrlCreateInput returns the ID of the control, not the value. It can increase readability by giving variables a prefix, e.g. $aArr for array or $idInput for ID's etc.
