Running a file with additional parameters

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone,

Quick question

When opening a file in AutoIT from a server location. e.g. \\server.something.local\work\backup\test.cmd

How can I provide additional information to open that file like possible with a .lnk file (the target bit)

I would like to be able to do the following

run \\server.something.local\work\backup\test.cmd "server.something.local" <-this is basically like a target link with additional parametersyou can get in a .lnk file

Look at ShellExecute() in the helpfile, it might be what you are looking for.
