However, i thought that it couldn't be right that msft had made a parameter which didn't made a difference, so i was puzzled about it. This then also means that if you e. Starts a separate window to run a specified program or command. This is batch scripting 101. If it is not an internal cmd command or batch file then it is a program and will run as either a windowed application or a console application.
I want to do it once on the central server. Which means the window will remain after the command is run. You can't -- executing a batch file with the built in Command Prompt is going to keep a window open until the batch file exits. I'm chalking this up to karma. The Windows start command opens the passed file in a separate window, so that Vim doesn't block; the Windows shell locates the application that is associated with the type of file. This new behavior does not occur if you run the application from a command script. The comma , is a delimiter for the substitute :s.
Closing the cmd window where the command was executed in will kill the vboxheadless process with the running virtual machine in it. It would be a minor modication to the Script too. Patryk If you don't mind using PowerShell, this command will open a windowless process that isn't connected to the spawning powershell. At least then all of your clients wont be flooding some machine with ping requests. We use --remote-expr to make it easy to write and invoke a function to process the results of the command in any way we desire. This is important, otherwise every time we invoke our command, we will leave behind the temporary file.
Note that the node number can be changed to any valid node number for that computer without having to change the affinity mask. Edited March 7, 2010 by Martin H. If you run it once a week you're probably ok. When calc is closed, the prompt Hit any key to close this window. I do get-job and just keeps showing all the jobs running. I don't want to have to edit a script 'X' number of times.
I would like to do all this without a separate batch file so that I have fewer scattered bits to worry about when migrating customizations between computers. Permissions and rights shouldn't be an issue, it works when not using start-job, and I don't use -credentials on anything. I've remoted into the target systems only using 2 and there's no activity. Pinging is a super lightweight operation and shouldnt hurt any thing. Overall, the first explicit title method is probably better. It is not an end user support forum. I've used in the past, and it seems to have worked for what I want.
If your goal is to continue working in Vim, sending the new console window to the background would be useful. I will likely go this route. You're right, by the looks of it, the script is stuck. Here's what I have so far in the script. Which means the window will remain after the command is run.
The process will be restricted to running on these processors. The basic idea is the same, however: call a shell command that writes to a known file name before invoking a Vim function on the results. Created a few vm's x86 and x64, gpo's applied and not applied and it works on 32 and 64 bit win2k3 when all the nasty gpo's aren't on there. Sean the Energized Tech Powershell. I created your Scripts Defrag and Reports folders. You could actually add the -w command, which makes it wait a long time. What was really annoying was not that the prompt window appeared but that it had to stay open as long as the program was running.
What you need to do in this case is run the Windows-based version of the interpreter instead of the console-based one -- no start necessary. Dive in and use it now, It'll take no time. Will check if I can modify script to run rubyw instead of ruby. I need to start a program virtual machine in the background with a start command on Windows' 7 command line. Now the flash is totally bearable, and not nearly as annoying. Dive in and use it now, It'll take no time.
Couple that with modifying your shortcut to run the batch file minimized, and you'll only see the taskbar flash without even seeing a window onscreen. Ultimately, the final script will analyze and defrag any drive above 10%, but for the sake of testing, I'm just analyzing. If you wish the cmd. If you run them with Powershell V2 and as Jobs, the added bonus is the scripts would all run side by side, technically a little faster and you would have the ability to monitor if one was running too long and opt to shut it down. In most versions of Windows, this can be done using :! So it makes a difference for me. If it is not an internal cmd command or batch file, then it is a program and runs as either a windowed application or a console application. In this case Ctrl-C will be ignored - leaving Ctrl-Break as the only way to interrupt the application.
