WMIC and AutoIt

Recommended Posts

blumi

Found a nice command line which I want to use in an autoit script, but don't know how.

Don't know if it is possible or not, who can help?

WMIC /node:%computername% /namespace:\\root\ccm path sms_client CALL TriggerSchedule "{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000003}" /NOINTERACTIVE

More info about WMIC

Do you just want to run the command (in this case use Shellexecute) or do you want to process the returned data?

Hi,

I think this is what you need,

snatched straight from helpfile:

#include <Constants.au3>
;~ Local $foo = Run(@ComSpec & " /c dir foo.bar", @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
$Cmd = 'WMIC useraccount list brief'
Local $foo = Run('WMIC useraccount list brief', @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
Local $line = "STDOUT read:" & @CRLF
While 1
    $line = $line & StdoutRead($foo) & @CRLF
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    MsgBox(0, "STDOUT read:", $line)
WEnd
$line = $line & @CRLF & "STDERR read:" & @CRLF
While 1
    $line = $line & StderrRead($foo)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    MsgBox(0, "STDERR read:", $line)
WEnd
MsgBox(0, "Command Output", " " & $line)
Exit

But Can somebody tell me why if I quote out the first 2 MsgBoxes

the 3rd MsgBox appears tiny in the bottom of my screen?

Make sure that you check

This script creates AutoIt code and uses COM to access WMI. No need to use STDOUT/STDERR to get the results.

@water

No return data is needed just want to run this code with Shellexecute

seems to out of date, I get a lot of errors when I want to run the script. (Variable used before declared)

@hawkair

Thank you hawkair I will try your code and take a look.

@blumi

You're welcome

If you don't need any data returned then simply

Run('WMIC useraccount list brief', @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)

will do the job

I figured why the previous didnt work: the result had to many blank lines

so the following works OK

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
;~ Local $foo = Run(@ComSpec & " /c dir foo.bar", @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
$Cmd = 'WMIC useraccount list brief'
Local $foo = Run('WMIC useraccount list brief', @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
Local $line = ""
While 1
    $line = $line & StdoutRead($foo)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
WEnd
While 1
    $line = $line & StderrRead($foo)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
WEnd
$msg = StringRegExp ($line, "[^rn]+", 3) ;remove empty lines
MsgBox(0, "Command Output", _ArrayToString ($msg, @CRLF))
Exit

For the Scriptomatic to work just add this line at the top

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
