RunAsWait not working on Win7

Recommended Posts

Doonbi

Hi Guys,

I have a simple script that calls a batch file to add ports to the local windows firewall. Script was built and tested on Vista, but does not run on Win7 and does not return an error code. Its seems the RunAsWait command is skipped. The compiled exe and batch files are copied to C:\windows\temp. I've tried varies combinations of quotes, double quotes, no path, etc. Its not UAC as it works on Vista. Maybe I'm missing something?

Local $sUserName = "Administrator"
Local $sPassword = "********"

Local $pid = RunAsWait($sUserName, @ComputerName, $sPassword, 0, "C:\Windows\Temp\CiscoPCIP_Firewall.bat", @WorkingDir)
MsgBox(0, "IT Team", " $pid = " & $pid)
MsgBox(0, "IT Team", " @error = " & @error)

I've just tested this on a different Win7 machine and works perfectly. I think this makes this issue worse or more difficult to troubleshoot. I've seen ppl with issues running AutoIT scripts on Win7, but they are 64bit machines. Event-viewer isn't showing any errors either.

Hi

I don't have a solution for you, but please note the following.

When using RunAs and RunAsWait you need to make sure, that the secondary logon service is running, and if you run your script from your own computer using e.g. pseexec.exe to get access to a remote computer, both computers must run the secondary logon service. And the secondary logon service needs the workstation service and netlogon service. The netlogon service only runs on domain computers, not on workgroup computers.

You also needs to select a "@workingDir" for the functions, that the end user have write access to.
