Syntax error running a COM object

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm in trouble with this expression

I don't know how It should be written in a autoit script,

in a .vbs I only need this:

Set WshShell = CreateObject(“Wscript.Shell)
WshShell.Run “Rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks”

and execute as myVBS.vbs $iniread[$j][1]

but in autoit syntax I got the error

what I wrote:

Run($WshShell.run & " " & '"Rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks"' & " " & $iniread[$j][1]

the error:

The requested action with this object has failed.:

Run($WshShell.run & " " & '"Rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks"' & " " & $iniread[$j][1])

Run($WshShell.run ^ ERROR

sorry if something like this was already answered ;)

EDIT: I set the $WshShell like this: $WshShell = ObjCreate("Wscript.Shell")

Heroes, there is no such thing

One day I'll discover what IE.au3 has of special for so many users using it.
C'mon there's InetRead and WinHTTP, way better

First, why are you using WshShell.Run instead of just using Run? Second, did you create the object for WshShell in your script?


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

using the run would be something like: Run($WshShell "Rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks")?

I added the object in the topic EDIT...

No, using run would be something like Run("C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe" & " advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks").

If you wanted to directly convert that VBScript to AutoIt, you would do this.

Global $WshShell = ObjCreate("Wscript.Shell")
$WshShell.Run("Rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks")

from what I read here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/mscomops/thread/83e1d0cb-ca82-4703-afe0-9b23d97d3df6

I was doing wrong the dll execution, 1st run the dll, after the software we want

thanks for the tips ;)
