Check status from local account

Recommended Posts

blumi

Hi,

just want to know is there a way to check the status from a local user account like the administrator.

Want to know if the account is active or disabled etc.

I know with net user I can do some modifications, but found no syntax for checking the status.

Thanks a lot.

All kinds of goodies like that available from the WMI interface:

$oWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & @ComputerName & "\root\cimv2")
$colItems = $oWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_UserAccount WHERE LocalAccount = True")
For $oItem in $colItems
    ConsoleWrite("Name = " & $oItem.Name & "; Disabled = " & $oItem.Disabled & @LF)
Next

To do that for a particular user:

$sUser = "YourUserNameHere"
$oWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & @ComputerName & "\root\cimv2")
$colItems = $oWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_UserAccount WHERE LocalAccount=True AND Name='" & $sUser & "'")
For $oItem in $colItems
    ConsoleWrite("Name = " & $oItem.Name & "; Disabled = " & $oItem.Disabled & @LF)
Next

Thanks PsaltyDS.

Just don't know to handle the code.

Have never used WMI or ConsoleWrite.

When I copy the code and run it, nothing happens.

In the help I found this:

This does not write to a DOS console unless the script is compiled as a console application..

How do I compile the code as a console application?

Maybe someone can help me a little bit how to use the code.

Thanks a lot.

Try it first in Scite4Autoit. There is an Output pane (press F8) which shows the ConsoleWrites!


Scripts & functions Organize Includes Let Scite organize the include files

Yahtzee The game "Yahtzee" (Kniffel, DiceLion)

LoginWrapper Secure scripts by adding a query (authentication)

_RunOnlyOnThis UDF Make sure that a script can only be executed on ... (Windows / HD / ...)

Internet-Café Server/Client Application Open CD, Start Browser, Lock remote client, etc.

MultipleFuncsWithOneHotkey Start different funcs by hitting one hotkey different times

What Xenobiologist said. I write most of my demos to be run from SciTE and display results in the console there, because MsgBox()s are too annoying.

If you should want to create a console app, just add this to the top of your script:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=Y
