I am using windows batch to check if Perl is installed on my machine and if it is not installed i install it using command line. This is my code:
FOR /F "tokens=*" %%A IN ('perl -v ^| FIND "This is perl 5, version 12
+, subversion 4 (v5.12.4) built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread"') DO SET
IF "%Variable%"=="This is perl 5, version 12, subversion 4 (v5.12.4) b
+uilt for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread" (
ECHO Perl 5.12.4
) ELSE (
call msiexec /i win_packages\01_ActivePerl-188.8.131.525-MSWin32-x86
+-294981.msi /q /l*v logs.txt >> Logs 2>&1
IF %errorlevel% GTR 0 (
echo 01 - Failed to Install 'ActivePerl-184.108.40.2065-MSWin32-x8
+6-294981.msi'. Got Error %errorlevel%.
Now the problem is if perl is not installed perl -v throws error which is displayed on output screen which I dont want. Can some one help me routing the output to > nul here.
