I'm trying to run cmd.exe with admin privilege and use flushdns on it, how can i do it though ? and catch the output to a TMemo, the attached code is what i'm using but it doesn't seem to flush the DNS cache, where do i put "/flushdhsn" in ?


procedure RunDosInMemo( DosApp: String; AMemo: TMemo ) ;

const

  ReadBuffer = 2400;

var

  Security : TSecurityAttributes;

  ReadPipe, WritePipe : THandle;

  si : TStartUpInfo;

  pi : TProcessInformation;

  Buffer : PAnsiChar;

  BytesRead : DWord;

  Apprunning : DWord;

begin

  With Security do

   begin

    nlength := SizeOf(TSecurityAttributes) ;

    binherithandle := true;

    lpsecuritydescriptor := nil;

   end;

  if Createpipe(ReadPipe, WritePipe, @Security, 0) then

   begin

    Buffer := AllocMem(ReadBuffer + 1);

    FillChar( si, Sizeof(si), #0 );

    si.cb := SizeOf( si );

    si.hStdOutput := WritePipe;

    si.hStdInput := ReadPipe;

    si.dwFlags := STARTF_USESTDHANDLES + STARTF_USESHOWWINDOW;

    si.wShowWindow := SW_HIDE;



    if CreateProcess( PChar(DosApp), '-flushdns', @Security, @Security,

                            TRUE, NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS, nil, nil, si, pi)

    then

    begin

     repeat

      Apprunning := WaitForSingleObject( pi.hProcess, 100 );

      Application.ProcessMessages;

     until (Apprunning <> WAIT_TIMEOUT);

      Repeat

        BytesRead := 0;

        ReadFile(ReadPipe, Buffer[0], ReadBuffer, BytesRead, nil);

        Buffer[BytesRead] := #0;

        OemToAnsi( Buffer, Buffer );

        AMemo.Text := AMemo.Text + String(Buffer) ;

         Application.ProcessMessages;

      until (BytesRead < ReadBuffer);

   end;

   FreeMem( Buffer ) ;

   CloseHandle( pi.hProcess ) ;

   CloseHandle( pi.hThread ) ;

   CloseHandle( ReadPipe ) ;

   CloseHandle( WritePipe ) ;

   end;

end;

if you are flushing the dns then should be

RunDosInMemo( 'cmd.exe /c ipconfig /flushdns', Memo1 );
