Command Interpreter

3 posts in this topic

I am new to AutoIT, and I have been using it for a week or two.

The Question:

Is it possible in AutoIT to enter characters into Windows command interpreter, cmd.exe? Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated.

Simple Example,

Start cmd.exe, and execute the command dir.

Thank You,

Rad

You can run directly if you like as well.

run(@comspec,"")
winwait(@comspec)
controlsend(@comspec,"","","dir{enter}")
sleep(1000)
controlsend(@comspec,"","","!{space}es{enter}")
winclose(@comspec)
msgbox(1,"Info",clipget())

My goal was to use an AutoIT script to reset a password on an Unix system using ssh2.exe.

run(@comspec,"")

winwait(@comspec)

controlsend(@comspec,"","","ssh2 -l root 192.168.0.104 passwd admin{enter}")

sleep(2500)

controlsend(@comspec,"","","t3st1ng{enter}")

sleep(2500)

controlsend(@comspec,"","","letmein123{enter}")

sleep(2500)

controlsend(@comspec,"","","letmein123{enter}")

sleep(2500)

controlsend(@comspec,"","","!{space}es{enter}")

winclose(@comspec)

msgbox(1,"Info",clipget())

This is a great start. Thanks.
