    How can I get cfexecute to run a bat file? (It is not working for me)

    Kastion2K

      My server is running the following:

      • Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition Service Pack 2
      • Coldfusion 9,0,0,251028 Standard Edition
      • Java Version 1.6.0_14
      • Coldfusion Application Service Log On set to Local System Account

       

       

      I'm running some command line software to generate audio for a custom captcha form. I can't get this bat file to run with cfexecute. I can run the bat fine if I run it manually and it generates the .wav file but it will NOT run with cfexecute. I had tried running the exe with cfexecute while passing the arguments and all that outputed to the page was "[empty string]". I have read pretty much every forum post I can find searching through google and can't find the solution to my problem. Please someone help me out I'm wracking my brain over this.

       

       

      Variables passed:

      • FileName=NFACZMU2-050031.wav
      • cap=NFACZMU2

       

      <cfparam name="FileName" default="">

      <cfparam name="Cap" default="">

       

      <cfset newString = "">

       

      <cfloop index="intChar" from="1" to="#Len( Cap )#" step="1">

                <cfset strChar = Mid( Cap, intChar, 1 ) />

                <cfset newString = newString & "#strChar#.....">

      </cfloop>

       

      <cfoutput>

      <cfsavecontent variable="cmd_content">C:\TSC.exe /s "#newString#" C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\captcha\#FileName# Mary (for Telephone)</cfsavecontent>

      </cfoutput>

       

      <cfset cmd_filename = "#ListFirst(FileName, ".")#.cmd">

       

      <cffile action="write" file="C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\captcha\#cmd_filename#" output="#cmd_content#">

       

      <cfexecute name="C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\captcha\#cmd_filename#" outputFile="C:\testoutput.txt" timeout = "90"></cfexecute>

       

       

       

      This is the content of testoutput.txt when the script is ran:

       

        C:\ColdFusion9\runtime\bin>C:\TSC.exe /s "N.....F.....A.....C.....Z.....M.....U.....2....." C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\captcha\NFACZMU2-050031.wav Mary (for Telephone)

       

      What am I doing wrong?
