7zip command line hide

24 Mar 2017, 23:52

Hi all, :wave:

This command I use in "X.bat" for backup and works well

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

cd ./7zip
7za -t7z a "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\B\[%DATE:~3,2%.%DATE:~6,2%.%DATE:~9,4%]-[%TIME:~0,2%.%TIME:~3,2%.%TIME:~6,2%] Backup.7z" -mx=9 -ssw "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\A\*" -x@"..\exceptions.conf" -r


I want convert this command to "X.ahk" + Hide command line when 7zip running archiving
I tried %COMSPEC% but still I am doing something wrong :headwall:

The % and , should be escaped, for example:

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

Run, cmd /k echo `%date:~1`,2`%


Or:

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

var =
(%
%COMSPEC% /c 7za -t7z a "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\B\[%DATE:~3,2%.%DATE:~6,2%.%DATE:~9,4%]-[%TIME:~0,2%.%TIME:~3,2%.%TIME:~6,2%] Backup.7z" -mx=9 -ssw "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\A\*" -x@"..\exceptions.conf" -r
)
Run, %var%, ./7zip, Hide

It does not work :shock:

Error: "Failed attempt to launch program or document"

you can try it in person:
http://www.7-zip.org/a/7z1604-extra.7z

Example (shortened version for testing):

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

cd ./7zip
7za -t7z a "C:\Users\Name\Desktop\B\Test.7z" -mx=9 -ssw "C:\Users\Name\Desktop\A\*" -r

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

var =
(%
%COMSPEC% /c 7za -t7z a "C:\Users\Name\Desktop\B\Test.7z" -mx=9 -ssw "C:\Users\Name\Desktop\A\*" -r
)
Run, %var%, ./7zip, Hide

Works for me. Make sure the script and 7zip folder is in the same path. Or specify the fullpath to 7za.exe:

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

var =
(%
%COMSPEC% /c "d:\path to\7zip\7za.exe" -t7z a "C:\Users\Name\Desktop\B\Test.7z" -mx=9 -ssw "C:\Users\Name\Desktop\A\*" -r
)
Run, %var%,, Hide

Re: 7zip command line hide

can you try something like

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

runwait, C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe a -tzip ZipFileName.zip \\location\ofstuff\tozip\, \\placeto\putzips\, Hide


I use something with a GUI front end to archive P drive data for terminated users after inputting user name(s), then delete the original P drives after they're archived. This hides the CMD window.

reference command line commands: https://sevenzip.osdn.jp/chm/cmdline/commands/index.htm
loop {
MsgBox, Life is like an Infinite Message Box of chocolates.`nThere are %a_index% chocolates in this box.

Oh, I'm sorry, my mistake, I was using cmd /c to test. Try again with:

I'd guess that any part of that string/statement needs to be enclosed in quotation marks - means even the cmd shell parameters, right?

Please check out how variables are treated within an expression.
(% %COMSPEC% " /k ...
vs.
(% COMSPEC " /k ...

Ok, recap :crazy:

Bat script that I want to convert to the "AHK" file + hide the notification window during compression...
(.bat script is working)

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

cd ./7zip
7za -t7z a "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\B\[%DATE:~3,2%.%DATE:~6,2%.%DATE:~9,4%]-[%TIME:~0,2%.%TIME:~3,2%.%TIME:~6,2%] Backup.7z" -mx=9 -ssw "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\A\*" -x@"..\exceptions.conf" -r
paths:
"C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT"
"C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\7zip" = "cd ./7zip"
"C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\A"
"C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\B"

Abridged versions for testing (.bat script is working)

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

start /d "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\7zip\" 7za -t7z a "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\B\Backup.7z" -mx=9 -ssw "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\A\*" -r


(AHK script is working)

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

run, %COMSPEC% /c start /d "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\7zip\" 7za -t7z a "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\B\Backup.7z" -mx=9 -ssw "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\A\*" -r


(AHK script is working)

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

var =

)
Run, %COMSPEC% /c %var%

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

var =

"C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\7zip\7za.exe" -t7z a "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\B\Backup.7z" -mx=9 -ssw "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\A\*" -r

)
Run, %var%,, Hide



-----------------------------------
This version looks like the best solution for me (Unfortunately, hiding does not work)

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

var =
(%
start /d "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\7zip\" 7za -t7z a "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\B\Backup.7z" -mx=9 -ssw "C:\Users\Windows\Desktop\TESTSCRIPT\A\*" -r
)
Run, %COMSPEC% /c %var%,, Hide

If I'm right and ",, Hide" it is only functional within a command line (7za.exe It is a standalone program) and command "Hide" will not affect


Any other ideas? :beer: :eh:

So why not use "7z.exe" (needs only the additional 7z.dll from the 7zip package) instead of "7za.exe" ?

That should work in hidden mode finally (not tested, and currently set to use /K(iosk mode)).

PS BoBo:
Work with the DLL is the right solution (But I've never worked with it) If you have time and mood, can you give me some examples :angel:
