run command and $cmdline that has spaces

Recommended Posts

Hi

This is a pretty basic question but I've had a hunt on the forum for an answer and haven't found anything so here goes...

My script takes a filename as a command line parameter and then passes it to another program using the autoit Run command.

The problem is that if the filename contains spaces the receiving program sees this as a number of parameters rather than 1.

I've tried:-

Run("D:\some_exe.exe " & $CmdLine[1]) ; works for "filename" but fails for "file name"

; ...

Run("D:\some_exe.exe " & "" & $CmdLine[1] & "") ; no difference?

; ...

Any help would be appreciated

Try:

Run ('D:\some_exe.exe "' & $CmdLine[1] & '"')
