Sleep causes failure with SMS

Recommended Posts

I have a script GUI that has a reboot button and some text to notify users that updates have been run. We want the script to wait 10 minutes before popping the GUI. Does anyone know why we would get a "Bad environment" message when running the GUI with the sleep command in place when pushed with SMS? If we just click the .exe and run it locally there is no problem. If we push with SMS without the timer, it works fine as well.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Add a MsgBox(0, "Debug". @UserName) inyour script for debugging and I think you'll see different results for the test run vs. when distrbuted by SMS; I'm guessing SMS runs as System vs. the interactive user. Running as system might be part of the issue.

I don't know anything about SMS, but is it possible that the SMS "session" on the worstation machine is not waiting for the AutoIt script process to end before it disconnects, leaving the script process orphaned with no resources, desktop, etc?

Yes yes yes, there it was. Youth must go, ah yes. But youth is only being in a way like it might be an animal. No, it is not just being an animal so much as being like one of these malenky toys you viddy being sold in the streets, like little chellovecks made out of tin and with a spring inside and then a winding handle on the outside and you wind it up grrr grrr grrr and off it itties, like walking, O my brothers. But it itties in a straight line and bangs straight into things bang bang and it cannot help what it is doing. Being young is like being like one of these malenky machines.
