Hello all,

I have been trying to run a cmd line program using the following line but it would come up with the error saying it couldnt find the command

$PID=RunWait(@ComSpec & "/C hinfo.exe app.mux > hinfo.txt",$current_directory,@SW_HIDE)

BUT, this line DOES work

$PID=RunWait("cmd.exe /C hinfo.exe app.mux > hinfo.txt", $current_directory,@SW_HIDE )

They do exactly the same thing, can anyone point out anything silly that i am missing?

Thanks

Regards

You need to leave space between the first quotes and /C.

Why not run the exe-file directly ?
