CreateProcess CreatePipe - gather Stderr output not working

Im trying to create a process and send the output to a pipe which I
read after the
process runs so I can see whats wrong.  In this case Im trying to call
it with pscp
(which is why I hardcoded the error Im looking for btw).  Ive tried
googling this and
Ive seen many variations of this code, but so far I cant get it to
work the way I was
expecting it to.

In my debug output, ReadFile Avail <0> is as far as it gets and then
I know its hanging because when I do it in the command line It also
hangs with the
string Im looking for, "Server refused our key", but I cant see why
the following code
isnt getting my Stderr output as I want.  And yes, Im a newbie still.

Id appreciate any help on getting this to work and bulletproofing it
more also.

bool doSystem(LPSTR cmd)
	HANDLE read_stderr, wr_stderr;

        STARTUPINFO si;
	ZeroMemory(&si, sizeof(si));
	si.cb = sizeof(si);	// Must set the size of structure

	sa.nLength = sizeof(SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES);
       sa.bInheritHandle = FALSE;
       sa.lpSecurityDescriptor = NULL;

       if (!CreatePipe(&read_stderr, &wr_stderr, &sa, 0))  //create
stderr pipe
 		dmsg(TERR, "CreatePipe %d", GetLastError());
                return false;

      si.wShowWindow = SW_HIDE;
      si.hStdError = wr_stderr;

	BOOL ret = CreateProcess(NULL, cmd, NULL, NULL, FALSE,
                            CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE, //CREATE_NO_WINDOW,
			NULL, NULL, &si, &pi);
	if (!ret)
		dmsg(TERR, "CreateProcess FAILED");
                return false;
	//WaitForSingleObject(pi.hProcess, INFINITE);

	dmsg(TINFO, "Process Started");

	char buf[MAX_BUF];
	DWORD bread, avail;

	if (!PeekNamedPipe(read_stderr, buf, MAX_BUF - 1, &bread, &avail,
		dmsg(TERR, "PeekNamedPipe stderr");
		dmsg(TINFO, "ReadFile Avail <%d>", avail);
		ReadFile(read_stderr, buf, 1023, &bread, NULL);
		dmsg(TINFO, "bread <%d>", bread);
		dmsg(TINFO, "BUF: <%s>", buf);
		if (bread > 5)
			if (!strcmp(buf, "Server refused our key"))
				dmsg(TERR, "Server refused our key");

	return true;

Running a PIF file using CreateProcess in an allocated console window
Hello, I am trying to find a way to execute a pif file within the context of my own application's console using AllocConsole.

visual studio 6 output window addon
Hi, I am using visual studio 6 and have written a small perl script to check that there are no conflicting resources in my resource.h file. The script works fine, and when there is an error message, it reports so in the output window. However, i'm hoping to take it one step further and so when i click on the error message, it takes me to the correct line of the offending file. Is there anyway of achieving this functionality in Visual Studio 6? Since compiler warning messages have this, i thought there may have been a way that custome scripts could have it to. Thanks in advance, Brett. ...

Windows in Taskbar
Hi, I have multiple Excel worksheets open and I like to ALT+TAB between them. This was all fine until recently when it no longer shows the workbooks in the taskbar.

Conditional Formatting Not Working Consistently
One of our Excel users is applying conditional formatting on cells within a worksheet that are linked to other worksheets in the same file and he is getting inconsistent results i.e., sometimes it applies the formatting and other times it won't. He seems to have the problem primarily when he selects a range within a column and then applies the conditional formatting. The conditional formatting statement applied to cell C5 is: Formula is =$B$5-$C$5=0 then format as red and bold. He is concerned about the ability to rely on this feature working properly. Since he is our Accounting Man...

VISTA UAC problem with ActiveX using CreateProcess

On Vista with explorer, the Activex installs and registers fine, download the file but vista blocks the CreateProcess. GetLastError returns 'Access is denied'. Can anyone help me so this problem ? Is the right solution to add a manifest to the ActiveX ? will it work also for an ActiveX launched from explorer ? Do I need to modify only the ActiveX or also the process it is starting ? Can I solve this without recompiling the ActiveX under a higher compiler than VC6 ? Than...

automating outputting reports using Office Document Image Writer
Greetings -- I'm working on a management reporting database, where I'll need to generate a slate of reports every week. We output reports using the Document Image Writer as MDI files for distribution. The quantity of reports is significant, and the time to run them is also significant. Would like to mechanize generating these reports, so I don't have to babysit the computer as much. Is there a way to output a report to the image writer, and pass it a parameter for the file name to save the report under? I've looked at DoCmd.PrintOut and DoCmd.OpenReport, and haven&...

Outlook 2007 Rule does not work
I am trying to create a rule where I can filer e-mails from Blockbuster and move them to the "blockbuster" folder. I have three other rules that do the almost the same. No matter how I setup the rule outlook seems to only copy the e-mail and not move it. The other rules I have setup (and function fine) simply move e-mail messages sent to a specific account and move such messages to a folder of my choosing.

CFileDialog, CreateProcess, and Windows XP
I'm having some strange behavior tied to CFileDialog and CreateProcess running under Windows XP and was hoping for any insight or leads to help sort it out. I have two seperate applications written in Visual C++ 6.0 using MFC and running under Windows XP. App1 uses CFileDialog to gain access to some files and behaves just fine when App1 is executed seperately. The CFileDialog window defaults to List view and the user can change the file view (to Detail, Thumbnail, etc). It also uses some extension filters and when the user selects a filter, only those files with the correct extension...

Outlook Client - Mapping
Hi all, could anybody explain to me how Outlook &/or MS CRM 3.0 identifies the fields that are mapped please? I'm working on an Outlook Client implementation and will have to include extra fields in the synchronization. I've seen the post on how to show the Parent Account field, but need more info on how Outlook knows that FIELD X = FIELD Y in MS CRM (or the other way around)... The other problem we've come across is that a lot of our customised fields have an underscore in them (ie: PREFIX_FIELDNAME, with the prefix denoting that it's a custo). however, when I try ...

Mapping dataset tables to XML output
Hi, I'm really stuck with this one. I have a dataset with two tables. One table is company data, and the other is contacts. I populate these by using a SP in SQL Server which returns the two tables in one call. I'm using Microsoft EnterpriseLibrary for Data to get the data from SP. It works fine and I get two tables in the dataset, "Table1" and "Table2". I then have an XML-file, which will serve as a template to generate the XML-schema, which I load into the dataset with the InferXmlSchema method. This gives me a perfectly good looking XML-Schema of how I w...
