SCCM & simple script

1 post in this topic

AutoIt noob here. v3.3.8.1

Intuit distributes QuickBooks patches in an executable with no silent install command line and which ignores keystrokes. I'm trying to push it via SCCM, so I need to automate it with button clicks. Here is my script:

;Runs QBWebPatch.exe unattended.
; Launch the updater
Run("\\server\share\path\qbwebpatch.exe")

; First window, during decompress, is named "Setup"; no interaction required
; Wait for the updater itself to become active
WinWaitActive("QuickBooks Update,Version 22.0"); no space between comma and V
ControlClick("QuickBooks Update,Version 22.0", "&Install Now", 1043)
; This msgbox is posted when update is finished
WinWaitActive("Update complete")
ControlClick("Update complete", "OK", 2)

Questions:

  • It works correctly when I run it. But when SCCM runs it, it launches QBWEBPATCH and then the script terminates. It's set up to run with admin permissions and allow user interaction.
  • Assuming we can get it to work at all, I'd prefer it to run hidden if a user is logged on, and to also run if a user isn't logged on. Is that possible?
TIA
