Need some direction for my script.

Recommended Posts

peterj04

I have the automated pieces of my script built, but now I need to figure out how to add some options. I am always confused as to when to use Cases, switches etc.

In the case that my script errors out and I have to cancel it and then run it again. I want to have options built in that verify if the folder created exists and if so continue to the next "block" of instructions.

As you can see in between each Sleep(15000) is instructions for a new a driver to install. Below you can see my example of how my script starts. There are more drivers after what I have pasted, but these are the first three drivers I want it to run.

;Prompt to install drivers
  
  $answer = MsgBox(4,"Dell D630 Setup","Do you want to install the Dell drivers now?")
    
;Check Answer
  If $answer = 7 Then
   Exit
  EndIf
 
    ;R181862  - Dell System Software
    BlockInput(1)
    ShellExecute("E:\XP Setup disk\Drivers\Laptops\D630\Drivers\01 - Dell System Software\R181862.exe")
    WinWaitActive("System Utilities: Dell Notebook System Software Utility")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("System Utilities: Dell Notebook System Software Utility")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("System Utilities: Dell Notebook System Software Utility")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("System Utilities: Dell Notebook System Software Utility","OK")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("Dell System Software - InstallShield Wizard","Next")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("Dell System Software - InstallShield Wizard","Finish")
    Sleep (1000)
    Send ("{DOWN}")
    Send ("{tab}")
    Send ("{enter}")
    BlockInput(0)
 
  
   Sleep(15000)
  
    ;R151327 - Broadcom NIC Driver
    ShellExecute("E:\XP Setup disk\Drivers\Laptops\D630\Drivers\04 - Broadcom\R151327.exe")
    BlockInput(1)
    WinWaitActive("Network:Broadcom 57XX Gigabit Integrated Controller,59XX 10/100 Ethernet Controller Driver","Continue")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("Network:Broadcom 57XX Gigabit Integrated Controller,59XX 10/100 Ethernet Controller Driver","Ok")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("Network:Broadcom 57XX Gigabit Integrated Controller,59XX 10/100 Ethernet Controller Driver","Yes")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("Network:Broadcom 57XX Gigabit Integrated Controller,59XX 10/100 Ethernet Controller Driver","Ok")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("Broadcom Gigabit Integrated Controller - InstallShield Wizard","Next")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("Broadcom Gigabit Integrated Controller - InstallShield Wizard","Next")
    Sleep (3000)
    Send ("{Up}")
    Sleep (3000)
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("Broadcom Gigabit Integrated Controller - InstallShield Wizard","Install");Install Start
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("Broadcom Gigabit Integrated Controller - InstallShield Wizard","Finish");Install Complete
    Send ("{enter}")
    BlockInput(0)
 
  
   Sleep (15000)
  
    ;R180759 - QuickSet
    ShellExecute("E:\XP Setup disk\Drivers\Laptops\D630\Drivers\05 - QuickSet\R180759.exe")
    ;Create Driver Folder
    BlockInput(1)
    WinWaitActive("Application: Dell QuickSet Application","Continue")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("Application: Dell QuickSet Application","OK")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("Application: Dell QuickSet Application","Yes")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("Application: Dell QuickSet Application","OK")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("QuickSet - InstallShield Wizard","Next")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("QuickSet - InstallShield Wizard","Next")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("QuickSet - InstallShield Wizard","Install")
    Send ("{enter}")
    WinWaitActive("QuickSet - InstallShield Wizard","Finish")
    Send ("{enter}")
    BlockInput(0)

Not sure, but hopefully this helps:

What if you made functions for each driver installation, or separate scripts. Then create a driver script that calls those functions.

Instead of using a wait statement, you could try doing a process check to see if the installation process is still running before you start up a new one too.

Also, if you use a driver script, you could get a little more elaborate and have the user select which drivers to install via GUI or msgbox.
