command line optoins not working

3 posts in this topic

Hello all, just started using AutoIT, loving it so far. My problem is I am trying to run an application with some command line switches it needs, below is what the command line looks like for running the application:

"C:\Program Files\Autodesk Land Desktop 2006\acad.exe" /p "MapLandDevelopmentDesktop"

Here is what I have in my script:

Run("C:\Program Files\Autodesk Land Desktop 2006\acad.exe" /p "MapLandDevelopmentDesktop")

Any help would be great, thanks

MsgBox(0,0,'"C:\Program Files\Autodesk Land Desktop 2006\acad.exe" /p "MapLandDevelopmentDesktop"')
