Help w/ winmgmt /verifyrepository in script.

10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I have this line in my script along w/ winmgmt /backup and winmgmt /syncperf

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c winmgmt /verifyrepository" , "", @SW_hide )

All of them work cept the one shown above. It throws an 8007007e error(I think thats module not found). It runs fine if I run it in cmd prompt directly. It just wont work through my script.

Any ideas?

Have you tried putting this line only in it's own script and running it from there? Are you trying to scan the backup that you are making or the active WMI repository? Perhaps you left out the 'Wait' portion of RunWait on another line and you're trying to hit the repository with two commands at once.

I had no trouble with the above line running on my Win7 machine.

Active repository, Ive tried it on its own line in its own script. Ive run it on several diff win machines. All same result =/

Try RunWait(@ComSpec & " /k winmgmt /verifyrepository" , ""). This way the cmd prompt sticks around and doesn't run hidden. Maybe it can give you more insight.

Just curious, if you are running the command with @SW_hide, where are you seeing the results? How are you capturing the 8007007e error?

Im running it in the console w/ a sleep(5000) timer to see the result of output. Ive tried it w/ @SW_show and /k already. It happens if its not compiled to exe and if it is compiled to exe

Have you tried running it with elevated privileges?

; Change the administrator and password below to an administrator account username and password
RunAsWait("administrator", @ComputerName, "password", 0, @ComSpec & " /k winmgmt /verifyrepository")

Do you get the same results with this command?

Look at the help file section: Running under Windows 64-bit Edition

Either compile script as x64 or use the disable redirection call

;#AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=y
DllCall("kernel32.dll", "int", "Wow64DisableWow64FsRedirection", "int", 1)
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c winmgmt /verifyrepository" , @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)

Ah, very interesting. I need this single script to work on both 32 and 64bit so woulld I just put a conditional statement and run the stated above code in the 64bit branch?

Or, could I just run the dllcall either way, and it just error out "behind the scenes" on a 32bit machine? and keep running script.

just check the OS architecture

If @OSArch = "X64" Then DllCall("kernel32.dll", "int", "Wow64DisableWow64FsRedirection", "int", 1)
