Is there a way to get the @Username of the actual user when using runas?

7 posts in this topic

user logging in = user1

Script 1 is compiled (to hide admin username and password for user2)

Script 1 uses RunAsWait to run Script 2 as user2 (because user 2 has admin where user1 doesn't)

Script 2 has code that relies on @UserName

My problem is, I want @Username to be for user1, and not user2. Yes I understand it is working by design because script2 is being run as user2 so obviously the @Username would be user2.

I'm asking, is there any workaround to get the ACTUAL user logging in? (user1) ?

Is there some way I can pass the @Username from script1 (which is still user1) over to script2 as a variable?

You could possibly write the @UserName value to an .ini file and then read that back in when the script gets to the RunAs line.


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Yeah, I cheated. I used the clipboard instead since I didn't want to mess with writing and reading files. I wanted something super fast.

Used this.

In script 1

ClipPut(@UserName)
*run script 2*
ClipPut("") ; clear clipboard

In script 2

$sUserName = ClipGet()
$sProgramsDir = "C:\Documents and Settings\" & $sUserName & "\Start Menu\Programs"

Better to spent a little additional time on it and pass that initial @UserName as parameter to the script with run().

... or I'm I missing something ...

RunAsWait($sAdminUser, $sDomain, $sAdminPass, 0, @AutoItExe & " /AutoIt3ExecuteScript " & $sSysVolDir & "\StudentLogin.au3", @ProgramFilesDir & "\AutoIt3", @SW_HIDE)

Let me know what I would need to change in the command to pass that argument and I will.

Just put @UserName after StudentLogin.au3

RunAsWait($sAdminUser, $sDomain, $sAdminPass, 0, @AutoItExe & " /AutoIt3ExecuteScript " & $sSysVolDir & "\StudentLogin.au3 " & @UserName, @ProgramFilesDir & "\AutoIt3", @SW_HIDE)

Now in your second script (StudentLogin.au3) you should use that parameter:

$user = $cmdline[1]
MsgBox(0,"","User passed by script1 is " & $user & " and real user is " & @UserName)

hi kor,

You might be interested in passing command line parameters to your script. Search the help-file for "Command Line Parameters".

Excerpt from help-file:

So if your script is run like this:

AutoIt3.exe myscript.au3 param1 "this is another param"
$CmdLine[0] equals... 2

$CmdLine[1] equals... param1

$CmdLine[2] equals... this is another param

@ScriptName equals... myscript.au3

In addition to $CmdLine there is a variable called $CmdLineRaw that contains the entire command line unsplit, so for the above example:

$CmdLineRaw equals... myscript.au3 param1 "this is another param"

Hope this helps. :unsure:
