Recursion confusion and such

Recommended Posts

kevinward13

The code below will allow you to enter the PC name and it will go to that computer and find all the user profiles and delete them. But it will skip/omit the ones you tell it to. There is also a portion that checks the current logged on user and ignors that persons profile as well.

The code loops through and re-checks who is currently logged on before every deletion to just be on the safe side.

However i could not figure out a better way to do this particular part without having to call the functions within the functions and possibly causing the stack overflow. I read the wiki and still am unclear as to how to prevent it and implement the calls correctly.

The code is messy, and i am sure it can be cleaned up and made to be more efficient but it does work. Any suggestions as to how to clean it up and run smoother?

This is how I did it for a project I created, it will not include the standard user profiles in the documents and settings or user folder (Administrator, Default User, etc.) or the logged on user.

#include <_array.au3>
#include <File.au3>
Global $aUserList[1], $X = 0

    $NewOS = True
ElseIf @OSVersion == "WIN_XP" Then
    $NewOS = False
EndIf
If Not $NewOS Then
    $UserList = _FileListToArray("C:\Documents and Settings", "*.*", 2)
    For $I = 1 To $UserList[0]
        ReDim $aUserList[$X + 1]
        Select
            Case $UserList[$I] = "All Users"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "Default User"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "NetworkService"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "LocalService"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "Administrator"
            Case $UserList[$I] = @UserName
            Case Else
                $aUserList[$X] = $UserList[$I]
                $X += 1
        EndSelect
    Next
Else
    $UserList = _FileListToArray("C:\Users", "*.*", 2)
    For $I = 1 To $UserList[0]
        ReDim $aUserList[$X + 1]
        Select
            Case $UserList[$I] = "All Users"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "Default"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "Default User"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "Public"
            Case $UserList[$I] = @UserName
            Case Else
                $aUserList[$X] = $UserList[$I]
                $X += 1
        EndSelect
    Next
EndIf
ReDim $aUserList[$X]
_ArrayDisplay($aUserList)

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.

ok that was odd. tried to access this post and others and got the 403 no soup for you blocked.

Anyway.... Thank you again Brew! It does appear to at least gather and filter the information i need faster.

See code below for the changes i needed to make.

#include <array.au3>
#include <File.au3>

Global $TxtLog = "_LoggedOn.txt"
Global $TxtDir = "C:\temp\"
Global $CurrentLoggedOn, $Pid_CMD, $CountLines

If RegRead($PsExecReg, 'EulaAccepted') = '' Then RegWrite($PsExecReg, 'EulaAccepted', 'REG_DWORD', 1)
If RegRead($PsLoggReg, 'EulaAccepted') = '' Then RegWrite($PsLoggReg, 'EulaAccepted', 'REG_DWORD', 1)

$Wname = InputBox("Enter Workstation Name", "PC NAME:")

    _Trimmy()

    For $I = 1 To $UserList[0]
        ReDim $aUserList[$X + 1]

            Case $UserList[$I] = @UserName
            Case Else

_ArrayDisplay($aUserList)


Func _Trimmy()

    $Text = StringStripWS($CurrentLoggedOn, 3)
    $Result = StringTrimLeft($Text, 3)
    $CurrentLoggedOn = $Result


EndFunc   ;==>_Trimmy

However, I am stuck yet again on trying to get this to loop through over and over until everything is completed.

I need this part of code to re-run until the array is empty.

$UserList = _FileListToArray("\\" & $Wname & "\C$\Documents And Settings", "*", 2)

    If @error Then
        MsgBox(0, "error", "ERROR")
        Exit
    EndIf

    FileDelete($TxtDir & $Wname & $TxtLog)

    $Pid_CMD = Run(@ComSpec & ' /c ' & $PL & ' -l -x \\' & $Wname & '| FIND "AD\" >> ' & $TxtDir & $Wname & $TxtLog)

    _Trimmy()

    For $I = 1 To $UserList[0]
        ReDim $aUserList[$X + 1]
        Select
            Case $UserList[$I] = "All Users"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "Default User"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "NetworkService"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "LocalService"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "Administrator"
            ;Case $UserList[$I] = ""
            ;Case $UserList[$I] = ""
            Case StringRight($UserList[$I], 3) = "adm"
            Case $UserList[$I] = $CurrentLoggedOn
            Case Else
                $aUserList[$X] = $UserList[$I]
                $X += 1
        EndSelect
    Next
Else
    $UserList = _FileListToArray("C:\Users", "*.*", 2)
    For $I = 1 To $UserList[0]
        ReDim $aUserList[$X + 1]
        Select
            Case $UserList[$I] = "All Users"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "Default"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "Default User"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "Public"
            Case $UserList[$I] = @UserName
            Case Else
                $aUserList[$X] = $UserList[$I]
                $X += 1
        EndSelect
    Next
EndIf
ReDim $aUserList[$X]

This

DirRemove("\\" & $Wname & "\C$\Documents And Settings\" & $aUserList[$x], 1)

needs to be inserted right here

Case $UserList[$I] = "LocalService"
            Case $UserList[$I] = "Administrator"
            ;Case $UserList[$I] = ""
            ;Case $UserList[$I] = ""
            Case StringRight($UserList[$I], 3) = "adm"
            Case $UserList[$I] = $CurrentLoggedOn
            Case Else
                $aUserList[$X] = $UserList[$I]
                $X += 1
        EndSelect


>>>>>>>> DirRemove("\\" & $Wname & "\C$\Documents And Settings\" & $aUserList[$x], 1) <<<<<<<<<<<<


    Next
Else

I am assuming?

Then i need it to start the entire process over again. Need to recheck the currently logged on person. then delete the next profile from the pc and array if it isnt one of the exclude ones.

The code I posted gives you an array of user names that are listed in the Users folder or the Documents and Settings folder on the computer. You don't reuse that code to delete the other users, you use the array that's created and loop through that once to delete the folders you need.

For $x = 0 to Ubound($aUserList) - 1
    DirRemove("\\" & $Wname & "\C$\Documents And Settings\" & $aUserList[$x], 1)
Next

Just put that after the code that I posted, in place of the _ArrayDisplay and it will loop through the array and delete the folders.

EDIT: or you could put that code in the Case statement that builds the array in the first place like this, so you wouldn't have to build the array at all.

Case $UserList[$I] = @UserName
    Case Else
            DirRemove("\\" & $Wname & "\C$\Documents And Settings\" & $UserList[$i], 1)
    EndSelect
