     'I've been trying to get DOS command line output to show up in 'my Visual Basic programs. I finally figured it out. It works 'really simple. The program creates a batch file that is to be 'executed, instead of using the "Shell" command to execute single 'commands. The shell command also writes the output to a file. 'At the end of each batch file, the progams writes 'the word "DONE" to a text file called "finished." When a user 'starts a command, a timer constantly checks for the word "DONE" 'in the "finished" file. When the word finally is written to 'the file, the batch file is finished executing, and the program 'can read the output file it created.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
