run dos window / program

5 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm using this code to run a server application:

Run("C:\Documents and Settings\Tom\Bureaublad\Glimote WoW Server\Ascent_Rev2554\Ascent Rev2554\logonserver.exe")

But when I run it, the window opens and 1 ms later quits immediately again, and the process has terminated too.

It's a dos/cmd program.

anyone knows how to fix this?

Hi tom13...

Are you sure there aren't errors in the exe??

As this is a very old post, I'm guessing that this has already been resolved. I also had a similar issue. I found a post elsewhere that lead to my solution somewhere on here (but don't remember exactly where)

Global $WARCRAFT1PATH = "C:\WARCRAFT"

    local $var
    $var = "CD " & $WARCRAFT1PATH
    Run(@COMSPEC & " /k Dir C:\")
    
    WinActive("cmd.exe", 1)
    sleep (100)
    Send ($var,1)
    send ('{ENTER}')
    Sleep (100)
    Send ("war",1)
    Sleep (100)
    send ('{ENTER}')

;; the program will run, do the following to exit ms dos prompt

    WinActive("cmd.exe", 1)
    Send ("exit",1)
    Sleep (100)
    send ('{ENTER}')

As far as i see, the exe is launched...

So to me, thats a error from the exe file that you are calling.

Cheers

DOS programs. Sometimes you need to run them through the command prompt to work properly.

You could do it like hades480bc's example or make a batch file

C:\Documents and Settings\Tom\Bureaublad\Glimote WoW Server\Ascent_Rev2554\Ascent Rev2554\logonserver.exe

and execute that batch file.
