    How to run commands like “ipconfig” and get the output in adobe AIR in windows?


      import flash.desktop.NativeProcess; 

      import flash.desktop.NativeProcessStartupInfo;   

      if (NativeProcess.isSupported) {     

           var npsi:NativeProcessStartupInfo = new NativeProcessStartupInfo();     

           var processpath:File = File.applicationDirectory.resolvePath("MyApplication.whatever");     

           var process:NativeProcess = new NativeProcess();       

           npsi.executable = processpath;     





      The above can only run a sub-application, but how to run an independent  application(command) like ipconfig and get the result?

          here is an example of running a net Use command line from AIR, unig the new NativeProcess. Hope it will help !


          function launchProcess()
            var file = air.File.applicationDirectory;
            // set command path
            file = file.resolvePath("C:/Windows/system32/net.exe");
            var nativeProcessStartupInfo = new air.NativeProcessStartupInfo();
            nativeProcessStartupInfo.executable = file;
            // prepare command parameters
            var args = new runtime.Vector["<String>"]();
            // set arguments
            nativeProcessStartupInfo.arguments = args;
            // add listeners to catch command outputs
            process.addEventListener(air.ProgressEvent.STANDARD_OUTPUT_DATA, onOutputData);
            process.addEventListener(air.ProgressEvent.STANDARD_ERROR_DATA, onErrorData);
            process.addEventListener(air.NativeProcessExitEvent.EXIT, onExit);
            // create and run Native process
            process = new air.NativeProcess();
          function onOutputData(ProgressEvent)
            var processResults = process.standardOutput.readUTFBytes(process.standardOutput.bytesAvailable);
            air.trace("Results: \n" + processResults);
          function onErrorData(ProgressEvent)
            var processResults = process.standardError.readUTFBytes(process.standardError.bytesAvailable);
            if(processResults.search('password') > -1){
              window.alert('Bad password');
            air.trace("Errors: \n" + processResults);


          function onExit(NativeProcessExitEvent)
            air.trace("Process ended with code: " + NativeProcessExitEvent.exitCode);
