VBScript/HTA Help! run command line on click

Hello,

I'm trying to make an hta that will unlock a users account using joeware's unlock tool. It's an EXE that you run in cmd and give it an attribute. "Unlock.exe unlock . username"

I have been able to get it to open a command window, but now put in the unlock.exe unlock . username with the following code

Sub cmdSubmit
    Const NORMAL_WINDOW = 1
    Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
    objShell.ShellExecute "cmd.exe", "%userprofile%\appdata\local\microsoft\windows sidebar\gadgets\teepe.gadget\EXE\Unlock.exe unlock . name", , , NORMAL_WINDOW
End Sub

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Below is my whole code.

A couple options:
1)  Run unlock.exe directly, rather than using CMD.exe
2)  Use the /C (runs unlock then closes cmd): cmd /c unlock.exe....
3)  Use the /K (runs unlock then leaves cmd open): cmd /c unlock.exe....
4)  If this doesn't work, use WScript.Shell.Run:
oShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
oShell.Run <command line>, 1, true

i figured it out. I just made a batch file that i point to, and carry the variable over using the %1.

Hi, you could have also changed this:
    objShell.ShellExecute "cmd.exe", "%userprofile%\appdata\local\microsoft\windows sidebar\gadgets\teepe.gadget\EXE\Unlock.exe unlock . document.test.name.value", , , NORMAL_WINDOW

to this
    objShell.Run "cmd.exe /c ""%userprofile%\appdata\local\microsoft\windows sidebar\gadgets\teepe.gadget\EXE\Unlock.exe"" unlock " & document.test.name.value, 1, True

as long as document.test.name.value returned the username.

Regards,

Rob.

i got it. I had to take the href out of my onclick. But i have noticed that .hta is not the best thing for vista gadgets. It's a little buggy.

Good work.  They can be a bit buggy, particular with screen refreshes, but they get the job done...
