Invoke OS Cmd Wait


Shawn Stone
 

I am using UP 1.9 trying to use the Invoke OS cmd with Wait set to Yes.
The Wait switch doesn't seem to work.  The process continues without waiting for the OS command to finish.
The OS cmd is a call to a web site, this works, but the Magic sub task continues on.
Any thoughts?  What am I missing?

Hi Shawn,

The wait switch will work on executables. A hyperlink will be activated and once active the Wait is ended. 

You can test with a small test.bat:
@echo off
start chrome http://www.denetwerkadviseur.nl
pause
exit

Do an exit to test.bat. With pause line it waits, without this line not.

Kind regards,
André

That worked, except now it is asking the user to press any key to continue ....
Is there a way to prevent that?

Shawn,

What is the actual web command you're using?

If it's Start and a URL, then try changing it to your browser's command line

path\iexplore.exe etc or something similar.

The OS start command immediately exits after launching its payload, and I think that's why your OS command returns immediately to Magic.

It's not start, it's this with added credentials and patient information.  The neat thing is whatever the default browser is, it uses that.
