Installing apps remotely

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I finally figured out how to remotely install software (patches) on a remote host,with the help of a friend.. However I am having trouble retrieving the return value of the app that was installed. I can get the return value of the process.. but I have no idea if the app was actually installed or not.

here is my current code..

#RequireAdmin
#Include <Array.au3>
$message = "Pick the file you wish to install"
$wbemFlagReturnImmediately = 0x10
$wbemFlagForwardOnly = 0x20
$i = 1
while $i =1
$strComputer = InputBox("Computer","What computer would you like to install software on?","arfj")
if $strComputer = "" Then
    $error = MsgBox(5,"Error!", "You have entered an invalid computer name")
    if $error = 2 then exit
Else
    $i += 1
EndIf
wend

$file = FileOpenDialog($message,@ScriptDir, "ALL (*.*)", 1)

If @error Then
    MsgBox(4096,"","No File(s) chosen")
    exit
Else
    $file = StringReplace($file, "|", @CRLF)
EndIf
$var = Ping($strComputer)
if $var then
_FileCopy($file,"\\" & $strComputer & "\admin$\")

$rlocation = StringSplit($file,"\",1)
$extension = Stringright($file,3)
Select
case $extension = "exe"
        $def = ""
case $extension = "msi"
        $def = "/quiet /norestart"
case $extension = "msu"
        $def = "/quiet /norestart"
EndSelect

$switches = InputBox("Switches","any switches?",$def)
if @error then exit
    
    if $switches = "" Then
        $war = MsgBox(1,"WARNING!","No switches have been defined. The process may hang if not ran silent")
        Select
        case $war = 1
             ContinueCase
        case $war = 2
            exit
        EndSelect
    EndIf
    
$file1 = $rlocation[UBound($rlocation)-1]

$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
$objProcess = $objWMIService.Get("Win32_Process")
$Error = $objProcess.Create($file & " " & $Switches)
MsgBox(0,"",$Error)

$d = 1
while $d = 1
if FileExists("\\" & $strComputer & "\admin$\" & $file1) Then
    FileDelete("\\" & $strComputer & "\admin$\" & $file1)
Else
    $d += 1
EndIf
wend

Else
    MsgBox(0,"","Unable to ping system")
EndIf

Func _FileCopy($fromFile,$tofile) 
    Local $FOF_RESPOND_YES = 16
    Local $FOF_SIMPLEPROGRESS = 256
    $winShell = ObjCreate("shell.application")
    $winShell.namespace($tofile).CopyHere($fromFile,$FOF_RESPOND_YES)
EndFunc

It appears if I use the "Win32_Product" and then use .install I can get the completion return code.. but this only work for .msi

edit: I found another problem.. I can not copy and run a batch / cmd file remotely.
