Do ... Until problem

7 posts in this topic

Here is my code:

Do
    RunWait("C:\UE\leafinstall.exe")
    WinWait("C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe","")
    If Not WinActive("C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe","") Then WinActivate("C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe","")
    WinWaitActive("C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe","")
    WinWaitClose("C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe")
Until ProcessExists("UEAgent.exe")

For some reason, it doesn't seem like this loop is ever happening, it doesn't ever run leafinstall.exe.

Hi,

RunWait waits until the command is done. Try Run instead of RunWait.

Same to WinWait. Try to set a timeout.

So long,

I want it to do a RunWait, leafinstall.exe is 2 lines, one calls a vbs script in a command window, the other exits afterward. Setting the timeout on the WinWait won't do anything either. It is never opening leafinstall and I know that the ueagent.exe process does not exist. I think the problem is with my Do Until statement.

HI,

what about doing it it step by step without loop for testing. Just remove the loop statement and place some MsgBox or ConsoleWrite commands between the steps. Then you'll see how far you get.

I know that the script works if I just do the lines within the Do Until statement. If I only run

RunWait("C:\UE\leafinstall.exe")
    WinWait("C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe","")
    If Not WinActive("C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe","") Then WinActivate("C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe","")
    WinWaitActive("C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe","")
    WinWaitClose("C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe")

Then it works fine.

Hi,

it is too late. I cannot think clearly anymore.

What if you try something absolutely :whistle: like

While 1
    While Not ProcessExists("bla.exe")
        ;Your code
    WEnd
    If ProcessExists("bla.exe") Then Exit (0)
WEnd

If your at that line, you already know it exists.
