Command Prompt 'Copy' Command Equivalent

Apr 24, 2011

In the Windows Shell, there is a command that looks like this: copy /b fileA.zip + fileB.jpg fileC.jpg..Is there any equivalent function in VB.NET? I already know this works: [code] But I would much rather have a built-in function to work with. Here is what I am trying to do: url...Also, this doesn't just work for pictures. It works for any binary file. Is there any way in VB.NET to tell if a file is binary or text?

C# - .NET Equivalent Of The Command Prompt "where" Command?

Nov 8, 2011

In .NET, is there an equivalent of the "where" command that is present on Windows Vista and Windows 7 machines? I need to resolve the hard path to an executable that is defined in the system path at install time, and not everyone installs everything using the default installation path.

Currently I call the "where" command as an external process, but this only works on Vista and Windows 7 machines, this does not work on XP out of the box.

Run DOS/CMD/Command Prompt Commands From .NET?

The question is self-explanatory. It would be great if the code was one line long (something to do with "Process.Start("...")"?). I researched the web but only found old examples and such ones that do not work (at least for me). I want to use this in my class library, to run Git commands

Stop App From Command Prompt?

Feb 22, 2009

Before posting this question I have carried out a few searches on this forum but I am afraid I am struggling because I am very new to Visual Basic and although I do have some programming background, yesterday was day 1 and I took a web tutorial and watched a few video tutorials. (Long way to go!).

OK to the question and I know I should really not ask 2 but It's better to get them both in one post I think.

I want to build a small utility to run a form in full screen to basically hide an old application running in the background.

My old application is a database (Non VB code) which works very well but while it batch exports a lot of data the software displays some pretty ugly windows, I want to call my VB utility from a command prompt with 1 or more switches to display some meaningful text about where it is in the routine.

I also want to be able to send a switch at the end to close it completly.

Q1 - What is the best way to manage command prompt switches ?

Q2 - How do I make it close itself ?

A Command Prompt Like Code Snippet?

Apr 26, 2011

I am looking for an easy way to have a command prompt like interface for my form. The idea is to make it an interactive text interface. Here is an example of what it might look like > Hi Hello! > How are you? I am fine! >_So it's very much like a chat. BTW, I am not referring to what the example is, just the concept of a command prompt, that I can create a scrollback buffer for. Very much like a MSDOS prompt.

Administrator Command Prompt Through VB 2010?

Jul 28, 2010

I have this problem where is wont let me create and files through the command prompt via echo xxx> C:xxx in Visual Basic.  If I do it sepoaratly and run the command prompt as admin (This is not using vb at all) then it will work.  I have tried putting my vb app to require previlidges at both levels at different times, not at once, and I still got the same thing.So is there a way I can use the comman prompt through vb, but also making the command prompt being an admin without turning off UAC?The code that will not work is this.

Shell(Environ$("Comspec") & " /c """ & WDir & "ToolsMediaInfoMediaInfo.exe"" --output=xml """ & WDir & "ToolsMediaInfoMediaInfo.xml""")

Read/Write Command Prompt

Mar 12, 2010

I have made an application that requires executing an external command prompt application, and I need to be able to read the result from its completion of each file it processes.

The external application works by specifying an input directory, it then scans for a series of compatible files and then converts them all one by one in a single command. I need to be able to read each line it writes and provide the appropriate feedback in my application. It would be nice if i could hide the window it creates too. Code I have tried working from:

Code:
Private Sub btnRead_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnRead.Click
Dim CMD As New Threading.Thread(AddressOf GETCMD)

Have A Command Prompt Type Interface On Form?

Dec 27, 2010

I would like to have a command prompt type interface on my form. The only thing I am aware of is a textbox, but there are no facilities to have commands and output scroll without keeping the entire history in a variable. That would be an ever increasing variable, which is ridiculous. Is there an alternate way to use a textbox as a command prompt, or is there something else I can do. Another note, is the use of an array. I know I can increase an array with commands, but this is no good either, because some responses in the box need to be paragraphs in length, so even a separate array for command and output is too cumbersome.

Waiting For Command Prompt Specific Reply

Using the sleep command doesn't really apply in this particular situation because I need to wait for either reply A or reply B and move on accordingly.
