Use @ComSpec

To run DOS commands, try RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & "commandName")

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /C c:\path\mycmd.bat")

EDIT: Forgot the closing )

Thanks a lot....but I'm not English.....so i haven't completely understood....So:

I have to write in the Autoit code all the commands contained in the .bat file:

RunWait(@COMSPEC & " /c cd C:\")

RunWait(@COMSPEC & " /c md Hello")

So the lines that I write are in chain?.....so with this 2 lines i make a directory in C: called Hello?

I don't know why this simple code deosn't copy the files "rar.exe" and "a.bat" in the path: C:\Programmi

Look at the code

#NoTrayIcon

FileInstall("a.bat",@TempDir & "a.bat")
FileInstall("rar.exe",@TempDir & "rar.exe")

Sleep(1000)

FileCopy(@TempDir & "\rar.exe", "C:\Programmi\rar.exe")
FileCopy(@TempDir & "\a.bat", "C:\Programmi\a.bat")

It doensn't work!

All helps appreciate

@COMSPEC will run you bat file.

Try this in SciTE

ConsoleWrite(@COMSPEC & @CRLF)

I also suggest that you install SciTe4AutoIt3 if you are on your own machine. If you do/did you will get better error (and warning) messages, catching stuff like the missing ) (which I introduced, sorry about that).

Missing backslash before the filename:

FileInstall("a.bat",@TempDir & "\a.bat")

Do you get any error messages? Helpfile--> @error

Also search for assert in the forum to see some powerful techniques.

Txk.....very kind....everyone....this stupid errors.....yacth!

Now it Works :whistle:

But in autoit there is the possibility (an in DOS) to use jolly characters......for exemple:

FileChangeDir ( "C:\Programs\Mo*\Fire*" )

to complete the name of a folder (in this case I know the names but in my project I don't know it....but I know it is the only one Sub-folder of a folder....lol....execuse for my english...I try to be clearer:

C:\Hello contains ONLY unknownfolder

can I do FileChangeDir ( "C:\Hello\*" ) to switch the working dir in the path C.\Hello\unknownfolder????

I hope you understood

Assuming I'm understanding your question correctly, use the "_FileListToArray" UDF. Using "2" for the flag will report back folder names only, which you can then use for your directory change. If, as you suggest, there's only ONE subfolder, then you could use something like:

#include <File.au3>

$search = _FileListToArray ( "C:\Test\","*",2)
$sSubfolder = $search[1]
MsgBox(0,"","C:\Test\" &$sSubfolder)

- MoChr(77)& Chr(97)& Chr(100)& Chr(101)& Chr(32)& Chr(121)& Chr(97)& Chr(32)& Chr(108)& Chr(111)& Chr(111)& Chr(107)-------I've told you 100,000 times not to exaggerate!-------Don't make me hit you with my cigarette hand...-------My scripts:Random Episode Selector, Keyboard MouseMover, CopyPath v2.1, SmartRename for XP,Window Tracer[sup]New![/sup]
