Using Run and variables


Recommended Posts

I want use variables within my Run command. Is this possible. The MsgBox seems to pop-up without any problems. Now the next step to create a directory using the variable. How can I do this?

$var = String("C:\Test")

MsgBox(4096, "Path variable is:", $var)

Run("cmd /c mkdir" & $var, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

I will use sandyd suggestion DirCreate() function, but referring to Run() function you didn't leave a space between mkdir and quotes. Another thing I will @ComSpec macro instead of cmd.

Run(@ComSpec & " /c mkdir " & $var, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

Without the space between mkdir and quotes run command look like mkdirC:\Test instead of mkdir C:\Test
