My code launches process on remote host that at the end creates txt file. I want to copy this txt file so I need to wait until the process finish. How can I do that?
SW_SHOWNORMAL = 1
con = wmi.WMI(ip, user=username, password=password)
process_startup = con.Win32_ProcessStartup.new()
process_startup.ShowWindow = SW_SHOWNORMAL
process_id, result = con.Win32_Process.Create(CommandLine=command_line, ProcessStartupInformation=process_startup)
I'm actually working on a similar thing at the moment. If you haven't found your answer, check this link - http://timgolden.me.uk/python/wmi/cookbook.html#run-notepad-wait-until-it-s-closed-and-then-show-its-text
My current Python solution is as follows:
process_id, result = client.Win32_Process.Create(CommandLine=command, CurrentDirectory=directory) watcher = client.watch_for( notification_type="Deletion", wmi_class="Win32_Process", delay_secs=1, ProcessId=process_id ) watcher()
This seems to work for me.
