;EXAMPLES OF USING @COMSPEC

Reminder from Blindwig: "FYI - You only need to call comspec to run internal comands (DIR, COPY, MD, RD, etc) You don't need it for external commands (ATTRIB, CACLS, XCOPY, NET, etc)"

;~USE SIMPLE DOS COMMAND WITH PARAMETERS

Run(@ComSpec & ' /k ' & 'dir /os')

;~USE SIMPLE COMMAND WITH FILENAME

Run(@ComSpec & ' /k ' & 'attrib "c:\autoexec.bat"')

;~USE ATTRIB

Run(@comspec & ' /k ' & 'attrib' & ' +R "run notepad1.au3"');add delay before checking status
        sleep(1500)
    run(@comspec & ' /k ' & 'attrib "run notepad1.au3"');delay this line to be sure attrib is set first

;~USE CACLS.EXE

Run(@ComSpec & ' /k ' & 'cacls.exe "c:\my music\halloween.mp3"')
    run(@comspec & ' /k ' & 'cacls.exe "run notepad1.au3" /t /e /p jeff-dell\jeff:f')
    run(@comspec & ' /k ' & 'cacls.exe "run notepad1.au3" /t /e /p everyone:f')
        sleep(1500)
    run(@comspec & ' /k ' & 'cacls.exe "run notepad1.au3"')

;~GET CMD.EXE HELP

Run(@ComSpec & " /k help | more")

woa, you sure did spend alot of time on this thread.

Thanx, very usefull. Do I need WinXP for some of them though?


I used to have over 700 posts. This is a new account. I am not a newbie.My AutoIt Home Page - Here is all my AutoIt stuff. Well, actually, I have loads more, I am just too lazy to put it on my page right now so deal with it.Guess what? The unvierse is made out of basically nothing.Think about it? What is the smallest building block of anything, it is what? A chunk of nothingness. Thats all. Hey this peice of space is a forperborb and it is so.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Well, other than the few samples at the top (which run in Win2K and WinXP), all I did was copy snippets from other forum threads. My goal was simply to put a lot of @comspec syntax examples in one place for future readers. As to Win98, I only remember one instance where it was specified and I did not include that example.

As I am not a programmer, I survive by using other people's code and adapting it to my small needs. This post was my small contribution to a lot of people's hard work!

Hmmmmm...

This would be a good one for the "wiki".

One central place to find it quickly instead of searching for it in the forum.

Just an idea.

Perhaps updating the syntax too... Like there is no more GUIRead, it's now GUICtrlRead, and maybe adding values to the variables used in there... But other then that, good work :)

Do you realize that this thread is over 8 years old? I doubt anyone in it still needs the information.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

yes there are those of us that do need it. And others that are new to

  • AutoIt v3

that need it as well.

BTW. is it possible to 

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c Cmp.exe "&"2>" & @ScriptDir & "\log.txt", "", @SW_HIDE)

The above works but the below does not and I can't find the way to use a Variable 

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c cmp.exe -report -af "(operatingsystem=Windows XP Professional)" -onlydisabled"&"2>" & @ScriptDir & "\log.txt", "", @SW_HIDE)

And you felt the need to resurrect it after 2 years in a 10 year old thread?

@meows - like BrewManNH is suggesting - What do you expect to get out of posting in an old Examples topic?

The current people who can help with your issue, are those who check the General Help part of the forum. That is where you should have made your post, with perhaps a link to this topic, though as has been said, this is old .... and there are better updated newer ones in the forum.

What is the Secret Key? Life is like a Donut

If I put effort into communication, I expect you to read properly & fully, or just not comment.
Ignoring those who try to divert conversation with irrelevancies.
If I'm intent on insulting you or being rude, I will be obvious, not ambiguous about it.
I'm only big and bad, to those who have an over-active imagination.

I may have the Artistic Liesense ;) to disagree with you. TheSaint's Toolbox (be advised many downloads are not working due to ISP screwup with my storage)

Gosh guys,

I needed a smile and boy did you deliver! I have been going round and round with @comspec for days now trying to put this diddy together for a elementary school principle. BTW how can you be a school principle and not know your operating system?

How ever all is good. found hidden away in a secret corner "&"2>" All it took was learning 3 secret knocks and saying HEY JOE at the right door, and right about now I think that code "&"2>" may just be the true meaning of life! And to think I thought it was following the 10 commandments. Just goes to show being blond and blue is't all bad.

My husband says thanks, he is a happy man his wife is shutting the computers off.
