Newbie, Need Help, Command Line Entering?

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have just downloaded Autoit and it seems as though it will do what I want but after a few hours cannot get it to work?

I wish to start a program and pass parameters to it.

---------------------

The following works in windows RUN window:

"C:\Program Files\Genie-Soft\Genie Backup Manager V4.0\GBManager.exe" -quick -e -job "Backup System"

---------------------

Expalnation, This part is where the file is located:

"C:\Program Files\Genie-Soft\Genie Backup Manager V4.0\GBManager.exe"

and these are the parameters to be passed to it:

-quick -e -job "Backup System"

---------------------

How do I achieve this in Autoit?

Regards,

Gary

See FAQ #7 for issues using double quotes in your commands.

You'll want to use Run() to run that command, but you'll need to understand how to use double quotes inside the string that you'll feed to the Run command to get your paramaters to be passed correctally.

I'm bored, so I'm going to show you.

run('"C:\Program Files\Genie-Soft\Genie Backup Manager V4.0\GBManager.exe" -quick -e -job "Backup System"')

this single quotes around the whole thing preserves the double quotes within.
