ICACL Run error..

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

When I run the following manually in cmd prompt

icacls fileonmyserver /T /grant user:F

It successfully changes the permissions.

When I run the following:

$sUser = GUICtrlCreateInput("username", 8, 60, 153, 21)
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /k icacls ""majordc01home" & GUICtrlRead($sUser) & " /grant " & GUICtrlRead($sUser) & ":F /T""")

I get the following:

majordc01homecspitz /grant user:F /T: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
Successfully processed 0 files; Failed processing 1 files

This obviously part of a larger GUI which I didnt include for clarity's sake..

Any ideas?

Thanks

What is this "majordc01homecspitz" supposed to say? Is it correct? Where in that string is there a mistake from what it's supposed to be, and what should it be? Give us SOME kind of clue what you are working with and what's not working.


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.

No mistake : ..

majordc01 <- name of the server

home <- share name

cspitz <-directory

As far as I can tell there is no mistake.

Thanks

There seems to be a problem with what you posted.

This

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /k icacls ""majordc01home" & GUICtrlRead($sUser) & " /grant " & GUICtrlRead($sUser) & ":F /T""")

Will not give you an output like this:

majordc01homecspitz /grant user:F /T:

The user after the /grant should be cspitz, it would never be just user. Your /T command has an extra ":" after it that's not in the runwait command, so is that the actual RunWait command, and is that the actual output when you get an error?

Seems I was confused with all the quotation marks.

I changed it to:

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c icacls majordc01home" & $user & " /setowner " & $user &" /T", "", @SW_HIDE)

and it worked.

Thanks for trying to help.
