PsExec - escape character '>'

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!
Calling the below command from poweshell works flawlessly:

PsExec.exe \\remote-server-name -u User -p Pass tasklist /FI "ImageName eq notepad.exe" > C:\tmp\notepad_tasks.txt

When i try to call it form AutoIT script:

RunWait("PsExec.exe \\remote-server-name -accepteula -u User -p Pass tasklist /FI ""ImageName eq notepad.exe"" > C:\tmp\notepad_tasks.txt")

i keep getting this error:

Quote

ERROR: Invalid argument/option - '>'.
Type "TASKLIST /?" for usage.
tasklist exited on remote-server-name with error code 1.

 

The below action works without any problems:

RunWait("PsExec.exe \\remote-server-name -accepteula -u User -p Pass tasklist /FI ""ImageName eq notepad.exe"")

 

Any suggestions on how to escape the sign '>' ?

Try added the cmd prompt to allow for piping the STDOUT: 

RunWait(@comspec & " /c PsExec.exe \\remote-server-name -accepteula -u User -p Pass tasklist /FI ""ImageName eq notepad.exe"" > C:\tmp\notepad_tasks.txt")
