Check the exit status of a called executable

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

Ok, I think this should be a simple solution, but I don't know how to script it. I am invoking an external setup.exe with some switches, identifying the Process ID, pausing the script until the setup finishes and then I need to check the exit status of the external setup.exe process. I've got everything working, but I'm not sure how to determine the exit status of the setup file. Furthermore, I'm not sure what the possible exit codes are for the setup file. I thought that when a setup finished it exits with status = 0 but I'm not 100% sure. Here is what I have...

$path = "c:\setup.exe"

$PID = Run ($path & " /silent")

ProcessWaitClose ($PID)

Now I'm not sure what to use. Any ideas?

Look for _RunReadStd() by lod3n

I have a couple of adds I did for my needs, but his is an excellent implementation that will get you everything you need and more.
