Using "Run" with a variable.

3 posts in this topic

Hello, I've been trying to figure this out for about a half hour now... at a loss for the moment.

I'm trying to figure out how to use the run command with a variable. This is all for the sake of easy customization. Sorry for being an AutoIt nub =S

For instance:

$exe_location = ""

Run($exe_location "-windowed", "", @SW_MINIMIZE)

^^ - Obviously the above script is incorrect but you can kinda get an idea of what I'm trying to accomplish. I figured maybe I'm making a simple syntax error or their is a more appropriate way to run this.

I'm sorry guys I'm tired and partially retarded. Only moments after my post I figured it out.

$exe_location = ""

Run($exe_location , "", @SW_MINIMIZE)

the above worked, haven't figured out the windowed part yet but i'm sure the solution is simple.

Maybe this will do what you want.

Run('"' & $exe_location & '" "-windowed"', "", @SW_MINIMIZE)
