I'd like to know how to execute commandline arguments for instance 'netsend ', 'copy' from Delphi.

I've tried ShellExec :

ShellExecute(Application.Handle,'Open',PChar(CommandLine),'','',SW_HIDE)

and this seems to work fine for opening an exe but not for executing a single task like netsend or copy.

Regards
Andre

For that you need to run the command interpreter (command.com or cmd.exe) with the parameter /c <command name), eg. copy , net ...

what about

UINT WinExec(

    LPCSTR  lpszCmdLine,     // address of command line
    UINT  fuCmdShow      // window style for new application
   );


i think that's what you need!

For Win32-based applications, use the CreateProcess function. (Microsoft)

szjozsef  is right
you need to use command.com /c switch

ShellExecute(Application.Handle,'Open',PChar('command.com /c netsend pc1 hi),'','',SW_HIDE)
