Problem To use RunWait  Topic is solved

21 Mar 2019, 15:04

Hi guys, :crazy:


I'm trying to prevent that my script does not hang on certain occasions like the ones that occur below.

Code: Select all

RunWait, C:\Windows\System32\RUNDLL32.exe PRINTUI.DLL`,PrintUIEntry /y /n"\\HOSTEST\PRINTER"
If I run this script, it displays an error message. I cannot display the message that there was a failure in execution, even using "If ErrorLevel" or "Try"

Code: Select all

RunWait, C:\Windows\System32\RUNDLL32.exe PRINTUI.DLL`,PrintUIEntry /y /n"\\HOSTEST\PRINTER", UseErrorLevel
If ErrorLevel = ERROR
{
MsgBox, Problema to run!	
}
or

Code: Select all

Try
RunWait, C:\Windows\System32\RUNDLL32.exe PRINTUI.DLL`,PrintUIEntry /y /n"\\HOSTEST\PRINTER"
catch e
{
MsgBox, Problema to run!	
}
In both ways, the message does not appear "Problema to run!" how can I resolve this? any help?

UseErrorLevel needs to be the 3rd parameter, but you have it as the 2nd (since the only other comma is actually being escaped). Add another comma, like so:

Code: Select all

RunWait, C:\Windows\System32\RUNDLL32.exe PRINTUI.DLL`,PrintUIEntry /y /n"\\HOSTEST\PRINTER",, UseErrorLevel

Hii
Hello. Even using the correct format with 2 commas, the message (MsgBox, Problema to run!) is not displayed. :roll:

Code: Select all

It displayed the error when I changed RUNDLL32.exe to a filename that doesn't exist. That proves that there's nothing wrong with the code. If you're not seeing your error, then it means that RUNDLL32.exe was successfully run.

MsgBox, program ended with code %ErrorLevel% !
