Help with reading hardware and run script

Recommended Posts


I have a Windows image I've put together that runs on both laptops and desktops. The desktops need software removed, a few registry entries are deleted or changed and files removed so I put together a basic script to accomplish this. We also have some laptops that need things altered and have a second script.

I would prefer to have one script that will read the model and if "OptiPlex 7xx"" to run the desktop, if "Latitude xxxx" run the laptop script. I used Scriptomatic for AutoIt to read the model (attached below) but not sure how to proceed from here. Can someone offer any pointers?

Thank you!

I would convert your two separate scripts to functions. Then use StringInString, to check for OptiPlex or Latitude for the the output. e.g.

If StringInStr($Output, "OptiPlex 7") Then
ElseIf StringInStr($Output, "Latitude") Then

Thank you!! Works great in my quick test. I really appreciate the help. I'm still learning this and thanks to you I just learned StringInStr
