Ending tasks for riprep to make an image

Recommended Posts

Win 2003 server has a program called Remote Installation Service (RIS)

This is is similar to Norton ghost... you create a machine and make an image of it on the RIS server. When making the image you must exit a bunch of tasks. The riprep prgram tries to do this but fail miserably. I want to create a program that uses the processlist() and processclose() commans to close any process that is not on my ignore list.

What I have so far is thiss

$list = ProcessList()
$i = 1
Global $fulllist
    $fulllist = $fulllist & $list[$i][0] & "|"
    $i = $i + 1
until $i = $list[0][0]
$listarray = StringSplit ( $fulllist, "|")

$listarray[0] = ($listarray[0] - 1)
_ArrayDisplay( $listarray, "current process list")

Dim $h = 1
For $h = 1 to 30
    Global $g
    For $g = 1 to $listarray[0]
        If $ignore[$h] = $listarray[$g] Then
            _ArrayDelete( $listarray, $g)

_ArrayDisplay( $listarray, "fixed")

I also have the list of data stored in an array

#include <Array.au3>

Global $ignore[31]
$ignore[0] = "30"
$ignore[1] = "[system process]"
$ignore[2] = "System"
$ignore[3] = "smss.exe"
$ignore[4] = "csrss.exe"
$ignore[5] = "winlogon.exe"
$ignore[6] = "services.exe"
$ignore[7] = "lsass.exe"
$ignore[8] = "rpcss.exe"
$ignore[9] = "spoolsv.exe"
$ignore[10] = "cisvc.exe"
$ignore[11] = "ntmssvc.exe"
$ignore[12] = "scesrv.exe"
$ignore[13] = "dsdtc.exe"
$ignore[14] = "dfssvc.exe"
$ignore[15] = "explorer.exe"
$ignore[16] = "svchost.exe"
$ignore[17] = "systray.exe"
$ignore[18] = "riprep.exe"
$ignore[19] = "cmd.exe"
$ignore[20] = "osa.exe"
$ignore[21] = "msiexec.exe"
$ignore[22] = "wuauclt.exe"
$ignore[23] = "wmiprvse.exe"
$ignore[24] = "ntvdm.exe"
$ignore[25] = "msmsgs.exe"
$ignore[26] = "wpabaln.exe"
$ignore[27] = "ctfmon.exe"
$ignore[28] = "procconmd8.exe"
$ignore[29] = "procconsvc.exe"
$ignore[30] = "processblock"
 _ArrayDisplay( $ignore, "ignore")

I realize I have extra _arraydisplay's n there but that was to see how it operated.

This current setup doesnt really work at all. I think it has something to do with when I delete the element in the list process array.

To explain myself clearer, I have 2 arrays. One that has a list of the process's to ignore and one that has all the current processes. What I tried to do was to have each element in the array compared to the other arra and if a process was found in the ignore list that matched the current process list then it would be removed. Thus leaving only the processwes that need to be ended.

Help me!!!... my brain broke (I want this prog but the 3 hours of sleep I had arent letting me make it) :(

For $h = 1 to 30
    Global $g
    For $g = 1 to $listarray[0]
        If $ignore[$h] = $listarray[$g] Then
            _ArrayDelete( $listarray, $g)

you can't delete an array element in a for loop, if you use the number of

array elements for the loop counter.


Round #1

h=1, g_max=20, number of elements=20

Now, you delete one array element.

Round #2

h=1, g_max=20, number of elements=19

so, $listarray(20) does no longer exist, thus you'll get a runtime error.

Just use a dummy array in the loop.

$dummyarray = $listarray ; <-----   !!!

For $h = 1 to 30
    Global $g
    For $g = 1 to $listarray[0]
        If $ignore[$h] = $listarray[$g] Then
            _ArrayDelete( $dummyarray, $g)  ; <------ !!!
