Here's my command line that works perfectly from a cmd prompt.
C:\BETASys\exf.exe  -c "C:\BETASys\BETASys.md5" > "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Test\Intergrity_check_results.txt"

However, I can't figure out how to lauch this same command from a VBScript.
May I ask for some help ?

Hi, this should work.  Since you're using the DOS only output redirector, you need to initiate cmd.exe.  Using the /c switch means the command windows closes once complete.

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strCommand = "cmd /c C:\BETASys\exf.exe  -c ""C:\BETASys\BETASys.md5"" > ""%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Test\Intergrity_check_results.txt"""
objShell.Run strCommand, 1, True

Open in new window


Regards,

Rob.
