in thread execute a vbscript from a perl script.

Maybe you could try to add quotes yourself instead of making others do your work for you?

    Hello Corion,

    I am poor in scripting. however tried below before posting.

    my $cmd = "cscript \ "C:\\ProgramData\\HP\\HP BTO Software\\bin\\instrumentation\\Failover_Passive.vbs \" ";

    but this started giving error and that is the reason i asked.

    Could you help??

    :-)

    "cscript \"C:\\ProgramData\\HP\\HP BTO Software\\bin\\instrumentation\\Failover.vbs\" ";

    should do the trick

      Avoid the back-whacking..use "q":
      my $cmd = q(cscript "C:\ProgramData\HP\HP BTO Software\bin\instrumenta +tion\Failover.vbs");
      why not 'cscript "C:\ProgramData\HP\HP BTO Sortware\bin\insrumentation\Failover.vbs"'; ?
