hello

i cant for the live of me figure out whats wrong with this:

$asset = "192.168.12.12"
$output_dir = "c:\documents and settings\all users\desktop\script"

    $file = ($output_dir & "\Active_Processes\active-processes_" & $asset & ".txt")

    FileWrite($file, '"' & @ScriptDir & '\pslist.exe" \\' & $asset & " > " & '"' & $file & '"')

    RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c "' & @ScriptDir & '\pslist.exe" \\' & $asset & " > " & '"' & $file & '"', "", @SW_HIDE)
    ShellExecute($file)

i even copy and paste teh filewrite results into a cmd window which works.. but the runwait doesnt - arrrrggg!!!

first look at your paths... for testing you might try to put everything in a folder like C:\Testing\

Next, sometimes I've found that the run command needs to have $STDIN_CHILD flagged on it to run some things properly (requires #include<Constants.au3>)

gcue,

I realise it probably just a typo, but you define $outputdir and then use $output_dir to define $file.

This works for me to grab the output:

#include <Constants.au3>
; Example Usage
$result= _CMDreturn('c:\pslist.exe \\192.168.1.55')
msgbox(0,"Version",$result)


Func _CMDreturn($sCommand) ; This function returns the output of a DOS command as a string
    $cmdreturn = ""
    $stream = Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & $sCommand, @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_MERGED + $STDIN_CHILD)
    While 1 ; loop through the return from the command until there is no more
        $line = StdoutRead($stream)
        If @error Then ExitLoop
        $cmdreturn &= $line
    WEnd
    Return $cmdreturn
EndFunc   ;==>_CMDreturn

so it works without the quotes if the filepath doesnt have spaces.. but if the filepath has spaces it doesnt work

i tried setting the quotes in the run command and in the $file declaration - neither worked =/

$file = '"' & $output_dir & '\Checkers\Active_Processes\active-processes_' & $asset & '.txt"'oÝ÷ Ú)¬ç[£7éø¥y©ÝÙh¢K(»­(¶§ÚâyÖ®¶­se'VåvB6öÕ7V2fײb33²ö2gV÷C²b33²fײ67&DF"fײb33²b3#·6Æ7BæWRgV÷C²b3#²b3#²b33²fײb33c¶76WBfײgV÷C²fwC²gV÷C²fײb33²gV÷C²b33²fײb33c¶fÆRfײb33²gV÷C²b33²ÂgV÷C²gV÷C²Â5uôDR

ok even this doesnt work

Run(@ComSpec & ' /c "' & @ScriptDir & '\pslist.exe" \\' & $asset & " > c:\documents and settings\eh.txt", "", @SW_HIDE)

BUT

again if i manually type out the whole command and path in a cmd window, it works (with spaces and quotes)

maybe:

Run(@ComSpec & ' /c "' & @ScriptDir & '\pslist.exe" \\' & $asset & ' > "c:\documents and settings\eh.txt"', "", @SW_HIDE)

for testing though, I usually do something like stick the entire convoluted command line into a variable and then show it in a msgbox just to make sure all the parts extrapolate properly and that it has the right 'quoting'

$file_path = $output_dir & "\active-processes_" & $asset & ".txt"

$command = StringFormat('pslist.exe \\\\%s > "%s"',$asset,$file_path)

ConsoleWrite($command & @CRLF)

;RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /K ' & $command, @ScriptDir, @SW_SHOW);Laave command window open after completion
RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /C ' & $command, @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE);Close command window immediately

I think the key to WeaponX's solution was using @ScriptDir as the workingdir in the command (as that is where your executable was located)

$asset = "192.168.12.12"
$output = '"c:\documents and settings\eh.txt"'
$command='pslist.exe \\' & $asset & ' > ' & $output
RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c ' & $command, @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE)

You need to specify the working directory when using Run and RunWait. Also I used StringFormat to relieve the quote usage confusion but then I had to escape the hell out of the backslashes.
