Please help with DOS Conversion

5 posts in this topic

I would like to get this converted to work in an AutoIt script:

For /F "tokens=*" %%A in ('Dir /B /A:-D *.imc') Do (ShelExec %%A)

I would also like it to work in all windows OS if possible as I heard this DOS command only works in NT systems.

I assume 'ShelExec' is an external program? Then try this:

$search = FileFindFirstFile("*.imc")  

; Check if the search was successful
If $search = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "No files/directories matched *.imc")
    Exit
EndIf

While 1
    $file = FileFindNextFile($search) 
    If @error Then ExitLoop

    $attrib = FileGetAttrib($file)
    
   ; Skip directories   
    If StringInStr($attrib, "D") Then ContinueLoop  
 
    RunWait ("ShelExec "& $file)

WEnd

; Close the search handle
FileClose($search)

The code above is NOT tested, could be full with typo's. It's just to give you an idea how you could do it.

SvenP:

ShelExec is an external program. A very simple utility to allow you to call the ShellExecute API from the command line.

This is a replacement to the commonly used start.exe which does not work on NT because on NT "start" is implemented as an "Internal" command in cmd.exe

It can be found here http://www.naughter.com/shelexec.html

Thanks for the code I will give it a try.

CyberSlug:

What the line does is run an external program in this case ShellExec against everyfile in the folder which has an imc extension.

ShellExec opens the file with the program which is registered with the windows shell.

For /F "tokens=*" %%A in ('Dir /B /A:-D *.imc') Do (ShelExec %%A)
