VBS script help needed

I have the following vbs code.

The first one imports a key and the second one terminates a process.

I need the first part of the script to finish in order for the second one to execute. Can someone help out with that?

----------------------------------

On error resume next

Dim oShell
Set oShell = WScript.CreateObject ("WScript.Shell")
oShell.run "cmd /K CD C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU\GnuPG\ & kleopatra.exe -i --import-certificate z:\255BD8BE19698491D80EA01A525F26535092FC41.pgp"
Set oShell = Nothing


strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject _
    ("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colProcessList = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * from Win32_Process Where Name = 'Kleopatra.exe'")
For Each objProcess in colProcessList
    objProcess.Terminate()
Next

Pls try
const DontWaitUntilFinished = false, ShowWindow = 1, DontShowWindow = 0, WaitUntilFinished = true
set oShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
command = "cmd /K CD C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU\GnuPG\ & kleopatra.exe -i --import-certificate z:\255BD8BE19698491D80EA01A525F26535092FC41.pgp"
oShell.Run command, DontShowWindow, WaitUntilFinished

Open in new window

Hi,

The code opens the app then does the import of the key but then the app does not get closed.
I need the app to get closed after the key is imported.

Change the CMD /K to CMD /C, that will have it close when finished.

Here is the new code with the CMD /C - The app does not get closed.

const DontWaitUntilFinished = false, ShowWindow = 1, DontShowWindow = 0, WaitUntilFinished = true
set oShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
command = "cmd /C CD C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU\GnuPG\ & kleopatra.exe -i --import-certificate z:\255BD8BE19698491D80EA01A525F26535092FC41.pgp"
oShell.Run command, DontShowWindow, WaitUntilFinished

It may be then that the kleopatra.exe program isn't designed to exit after processing the command line parms.  Does it bring up the UI for that application when you run this test?

Yes the UI shows and and the command is executed, however the app does not exit.

This is why I wanted to execute this code:

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject _
    ("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colProcessList = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * from Win32_Process Where Name = 'Kleopatra.exe'")
For Each objProcess in colProcessList
    objProcess.Terminate()
Next

Then you need to start the kleopatra process without waiting for it to end, wait a bit, end then end the process again. Using cmd.exe should not be necessary.
Dim oShell
Set oShell = WScript.CreateObject ("WScript.Shell")
oShell.run Chr(34) & "C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU\GnuPG\kleopatra.exe" & Chr(34) & " -i --import-certificate z:\255BD8BE19698491D80EA01A525F26535092FC41.pgp", 1, False
Set oShell = Nothing
Wscript.Sleep 5000

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colProcessList = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Process Where Name = 'Kleopatra.exe'")
For Each objProcess in colProcessList
    objProcess.Terminate()
Next
