Just starting, trouble with Run command

Recommended Posts

I am looking into using Autoit to do thousands of inputs to another program.

Run("C:\sst\ETrans.exe") Gives me run time error 53, file not found.

What is strange is that If I get rid of"C:\sst\ "


I get a different error:

line 28 (File"C:\Program Files\Autoit3\Examples\Etrans.au3"):


Error: Unable to execute the external program.

The System cannot find the file specified.

The program ETrans runs fine from the windows start button run command line if I cut and paste the same "C:\sst\ETrans.exe"

any ideas would be great, this program looks like it will save me fomlots of tedeous clicking.

thanks in advance
