Starting Windows Services Using Autoit 3

Recommended Posts



I would like to start and stop windows XP services using autoit 3. I want to use the net command e.g. net start etc. However quotation marks are needed around service names. How do I get these onto the command line


RunWait (@comspec & " /c " & "net start "big service name"")

does not work.

Is there an escape character a la UNIX shells?
