RunWait and ShellExecute with parameters

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

I can't get the following command line to be executed with AutoIt

runwait("P:\Programme\VirtualDub\vdub.exe /s e:\temp\transtest\tt1.csf /p e:\temp\transtest\test_capture.avi e:\temp\transtest\test_divx.avi /r /x")

If I execute it, vdub.exe seems to be launched but closes immedeatly. In case I key-in the command line direct into the shell, it works. Also tried ShellExecute with the parameters seperated in the second field - no success. I think there is something wrong with the parameters.

Any idea?

If path or param contains space you must use qutes:

Something like this:

runwait('"P:\Programme\VirtualDub\vdub.exe" "/s e:\temp\transtest\tt1.csf" "/p e:\temp\transtest\test_capture.avi" e:\temp\transtest\test_divx.avi /r /x')

But I don't know exact params so I show you only princip...

Thanks Zedna for your quick response. I tried your proposal but without success.

The run command opens a shell, runs the executeable and closes - too fast to read perhaps some error messages. Is there a possibility to pause the execution of the run command before the shell closes in order to get warnings/error messages from the application?

use Run(@comspec & " /k yourcommandhere" )

That fixed it. Thanks a lot.

If that fixed it then

ShellExecuteWait("P:\Programme\VirtualDub\vdub.exe", "/s e:\temp\transtest\tt1.csf /p e:\temp\transtest\test_capture.avi e:\temp\transtest\test_divx.avi /r /x")

should also work.

Edit: had one too many quotes.
