     4: type(Key.ENTER)
     5: wait(2)
     6: paste("python " + self.srmMany + " " + b + " " + a + " " + " E29")
     7: wait(2)
     8: type(Key.ENTER)
     9: wait(7)
    10: paste("exit")
    11: wait(2)

I guess:
 1: self.fileCommon.openFile("cmd")

opens some GUI, where the paste() should fill in.

You have to somehow wait for the GUI to be ready, e.g. insert a dumb wait(1) or a more intelligent wait(someImage, 10), that if found signals the GUI to be ready.

thanks so much ,
1: self.fileCommon.openFile("cmd")
here is ok , only " paste " function doesn't work sometimes....

------- self.fileCommon.openFile("cmd")
---- This is the method of encapsulation.

    def openFile(self, path):
        self.log.write_log("FileOrFolderCommon -> openFile start.")
        self.log.write_log("path = %s"%(path))
        type("r", Key.WIN)
        if exists(Pattern("1515739915973.png").targetOffset(-75,45)):
        self.log.write_log("FileOrFolderCommon -> openFile end.")

do you have other idea?
thanks a lot

... looks so, but might not be in the sense I mentioned:
you have dumb wait(5) after triggering the run box from the start menu.

An intelligent wait would be, to wait for something whatever related to the opened stuff, that signals, that its GUI is ready to accept a paste.

If this for some reason sometimes takes more than 5 seconds, paste would fail in this case.
