noob here,

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

I need to run an exe with a "-s" switch. Will that go in the parameters section or should I add it to the filename?

Thanks!

Welcome to the forums :)

It's a parameter so it goes in the parameters list.

I'm getting this error when I compile it. Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?

JESUS! I finally figured it out. Not suppose to be a , at the end of parameters. Should be

shellexecutewait("RemoveCitrixClient.exe" , "-s" , "y:" )

not

shellexecutewait("RemoveCitrixClient.exe" , "-s" , "y:" , )

Is baldness normal in this trade??? :)

If you are an investor you might consider investing in an antacid company :)


[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]
