Retrieve Errorlevel from CMD Line (eg.,Ping)


Recommended Posts

It looks like and errorlevel of 0 means ping was successful. Well this thing always tells me it was succesful.

I've tried:

RunWait("Ping Exchange", @WindowsDir, @SW_HIDE)

$EC = EnvGet("ErrorLevel")

If $EC = 0 Then

MSGBOX(4096,"Exchange", "Exchange was pinged succesfully.")

Else

MSGBOX(4096,"Exchange", "Exchange was NOT pinged succesfully.")

EndIf

Exit

I guess I'm getting 0 all the time because the "DOS" window is ending normally. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks,

Kenny

Pseudo code:

$res = RunWait()
If $res = "something" Then 
    DoSomething()
Else
    DoNothing()
EndIf

RunWait should return the return value of whatever program you execute (Note: Because of the way Run works, it does not do this, too, only RunWait).
