I can explain this in more detail.
strResult = crt.Screen.ReadString(vbcrlf)
Your line of code above tells ReadString() to start capturing data until it finds a carriage return and a line feed. When ReadString() finds this set of characters, it returns the data captured in the form of a variable named strResult.

Jake indicated that you need to modify the line above to look for your shell prompt rather than a carriage return and a line feed. For example, if your prompt is my_prompt$, you would modify your line of code as follows:
strResult = crt.Screen.ReadString("my_prompt$")
Making this modification will tell ReadString() to capture date until it finds the string my_prompt$ at which time it will return the captured data in the form of the variable strResult.

That's actually exactly what I tried out before asking about a more detailed explanation.
The reason I asked for the detailed explanation is because I tried what you suggested above, but it didn't work.

I tried it again now, but it still doesn't work.
Any good way to troubleshoot this?

It isn't clear how "it didn't work".

Are you stating that strResult is still empty?

If so, you might consider recording a script in SecureCRT. A SecureCRT recorded script in conjunction with a raw log can help as you debug your script code. When using a recorded script, a key point to compare is the prompt that is recorded vs. the prompt you have in your script code.
