Stupid Run Question sorry !

Recommended Posts


I have a strange problem. I have made a script which runs an exe that needs a parameter. Here is the script :

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

;Defining variables
$driveltr = ""
$prg = "RemoveDrive.exe"

;Creating GUI
GUICreate ( "Select Device", 175, 100, -1, -1, $WS_BORDER )
GUISetState ( @SW_SHOW )

;Creating radio buttons
$radio1 = GUICtrlCreateRadio ( "Portable Harddisk",5 ,5 ,150 )
$radio2 = GUICtrlCreateRadio ( "USB Flash Drive",5 ,25 ,150 )

;Creating action button
$button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton ( "Remove device" ,5 ,47 ,95 )
$button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton ( "Exit" ,135 ,47, 35 )

;Standard radio1 selected.
GUICtrlSetState ( $radio1, $GUI_CHECKED )

;Displaying GUI until it is closed.
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE or $msg = $button2
        Case $msg = $button1 
            If GUICtrlRead ( $radio1 ) = 1 Then $driveltr="P:"
            If GUICtrlRead ( $radio2 ) = 1 Then $driveltr="U:"
            RunWait ( $prg & $driveltr, @ScriptDir )

The $prg is the program and the $driveltr is the drive letter. It has to run like RemoveDrive.exe P: or RemoveDrive.exe U: it depends on the radio button. I't seems having a problem with & $driveltr. What am I doing wrong ?

My guess that is that there would be no space as the command is passed so you would be receiving RemoveDrive.exeU:, you could try using shellexecute, that passes parameters

ShellExecute ( "filename" [, "parameters" [, "workingdir" [, "verb" [, showflag]]]] )
