capturing stdout

4 posts in this topic

I have been trying to capture stdout from the ms uptime CLI utility:MS uptime.exe

uptime.exe is in the same directory as my script fragment.

At a cmd window, I can redirect its output to a file so I think this ought to work.

Here it is:

#include <Constants.au3>

$result = Run(@ComSpec & " uptime.exe ", @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE , $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)  

;MsgBox(0, "result", $result)    ; !!! HERE !!!

$line = StdoutRead($result) 

MsgBox(0, "UPTIME", $line)

For some reason my resulting dialog is empty?

Also I added a debug dialog (marked as !!! HERE !!! in the script) to establish that I was getting a process ID, which I am, but for some reason with this line added, my UPTIME dialog now contains a windows copyright message??

Thanks with any help

Just follow the example in the help for StdOutRead.
