How to ConsoleWrite after #RequireAdmin?

12 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

#RequireAdmin

ConsoleWrite("hoi"&@CRLF)

Nothing is written to the console though the script runs fine. (Using Windows 7, 32 bits.) If I don't #RequireAdmin, I see the console output.

[edit: I think something is in fact written to *some* console, just not the one I'm seeing or something.]

I'm guessing running a script as administrator it still writes to the console but just not the console that the Scite window is handling... Because if I start Scite as administrator, then I can see the console output after a #RequireAdmin. What puzzles me though is that if I start Scite as admin and I DON'T #ReqAdm, then I can still see the output!

Run Scite as admin + ConsoleWrite = I see output

Run Scite as admin + #RequireAdmin + ConsoleWrite = I see output

Run Scite as user + ConsoleWrite = I see output

Run Scite as user + #RequireAdmin + ConsoleWrite = I see NO output!

?

Remarks

This function was primarily aimed at allowing AutoIt scripts to work correctly with Windows Vista User Account Control (UAC) (However, will also work on Windows 2000 and Windows XP).

For more details see AutoIt on Windows Vista.

As this function launch a new process, some functions as Consolewrite() cannot be captured (Scite will not display anything).


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Thanks. I did read that, but as I pointed out in my previous post I can see the ConsoleWrite output just fine after a #RequireAdmin as long as I start Scythe as administrator... So I think the help file might be cutting corners on this subject somewhat.

No, sorry but actually I don't, since when I run Scite as admin and I don't include the #RequireAdmin, I still see the console output. Or is the interpreter itself ran as admin when you start scite as admin? I guess it is. Never mind! Thanks for helping.

When you run SciTe as an admin, and then run the script, you are running it as an Admin it doesn't need to be restarted to run as Admin with the #requireadmin directive. If you run Scite as a regular user and then start the script, it's STARTED as by the regular user, the #requireadmin directive will then RESTART the script as an admin. Because it's being started a second time, in a different user's namespace, it's not visible to SciTe any longer.

Ok, that clears it right up indeed! :graduated: Thanks for your effort.

#requireadmin is useless, if you're running a script launch AutoIt or SciTE as admin, and if you compile use #AutoIt3Wrapper_res_requestedExecutionLevel.

Its not useless when you need it ran from the au3 file like. :-)

Wow, that looks a whole lot more professional! :graduated: But... Can I find that in the helpfile somewhere? Because just searching for it in the helpfile turns up nothing :(

Yeah by the way I have used this ever since Windows Vista appeared for scripts that need to do something funky like registry writing. Always worked like a charm, both for test scripts from scythe as for compiled exes.

That is because it is part of the SciTE4AutoIT3 installer specifically AutoIt3Wrapper functionality I created.

Look in the Helpfile that comes with that installer.
