I don't understand Workdir

Recommended Posts

lrohrbaugh

Below is the script I am running. For some reason I can't get it to look in the proper folder. If I drop the exe into the system32 folder and removed the workdir location it runs fine. I'm sure it's something stupid but I can't figure it out. Thanks in advance.

Local $sUserName = "lrohrbaugh"

Local $sPassword = "password"

Local $sWorkDir = "c:\program files\tpi\imagine"

RunAs ($sUserName, "aac", $sPassword, 0, "imagine_update.exe" , $sWorkDir )

I bet its having dificulties with the space between "Program Files" in the path you are using.

Try:

Local $sWorkDir = '"c:\program files\tpi\imagine"'

if you dont notice them.. I added single quotes outside your double quotes


[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]

Use the full path to the executable. The working directory has nothing to do with where the executable is located.
