vbs launching

Recommended Posts

polizzi82

I would never claim to be great at AutoIt but will Google and tinker until I get my script working.

Today after 5 hours of frusteration I finally created an account on this awesome board for help...

I need to launch a vbs file with a modifier (not sure if that's the right terminology).

From the run command when I put CopyMembership.vbs "username1" "username2" it runs the vbs which references the 2 provided usernames.

The only way I can incorporate running this script is popping open a Run Window and 'send'ing the complied text and running.

It's tacky and I'd like to Run/Shell Execute it.

Here's the code that works but is ugly:

FileCopy ("\\Shcsd.sharp.com\sharp\soc\groups\ISD Common\.TemporaryItems\CopyMembership.vbs", "C:\Temp\")
Sleep (2000)
Local $CopiedFrom = InputBox ( "Membership Copy", "Please enter the username of the user you are copying FROM", "", "")
Local $CopyTo = InputBox ( "Membership Copy", "Please enter the username of the user you are copying TO", "", "")
$OKorCancel = MsgBox ( 1, "Please verify", $CopyTo &" will get " & $CopiedFrom & "'s groups" )
Switch $OKorCancel
   Case 2
   FileDelete ("C:\Temp\CopyMembership.vbs")
   MsgBox (16, "HALT!", "Cancelled by user")
   Exit
   Case 1
   Send ( "#r" )
   WinWait ("Run")
   Sleep (300)
   Send ("C:\Temp\CopyMembership.vbs " &'"' &$CopiedFrom & '" ' &'"' &$CopyTo &'"')
   Send ("{TAB}{ENTER}")
   Exit
EndSwitch
Exit

I would love to have something like:

FileCopy ("\\Shcsd.sharp.com\sharp\soc\groups\ISD Common\.TemporaryItems\CopyMembership.vbs", "C:\Temp\")
Sleep (2000)
Local $CopiedFrom = InputBox ( "Membership Copy", "Please enter the username of the user you are copying FROM", "", "")
Local $CopyTo = InputBox ( "Membership Copy", "Please enter the username of the user you are copying TO", "", "")
$OKorCancel = MsgBox ( 1, "Please verify", $CopyTo &" will get " & $CopiedFrom & "'s groups" )
Switch $OKorCancel
   Case 2
   FileDelete ("C:\Temp\CopyMembership.vbs")
   MsgBox (16, "HALT!", "Cancelled by user")
   Exit
   Case 1
   ShellExecute ("C:\Temp\CopyMembership.vbs " &'"' &$CopiedFrom & '" ' &'"' &$CopyTo &'"')
   Exit
EndSwitch
Exit

I even tried compiling the path into a variable with no launching luck (the notepad is just for troubleshooting and verification of the path being legit)

FileCopy ("\\Shcsd.sharp.com\sharp\soc\groups\ISD Common\.TemporaryItems\CopyMembership.vbs", "C:\Temp\")
Local $CopiedFrom = "polzo"
Local $CopyTo = "polza"
Local $Path = "C:\Temp\CopyMembership.vbs " &'"' &$CopiedFrom & '" ' &'"' &$CopyTo &'"'
WinActivate ("Untitled - Notepad")
Send ($Path)
Sleep (2000)
Send ("{SHIFTDOWN}{HOME}{SHIFTUP}")
Sleep (200)
Send ("{DEL}")
ShellExecute ($Path)
;or something like that, I've tried dozens of combinations
Exit

This may be a case where I don't know the terminology or maybe a limitation?

Thanks a gazillion in advance for any help in advance and I apoligize if my code is yucky,

Mike

What's in the vbs file that can't be done in AutoIt? Because from what I've seen, almost anything that can be done with VBScript can be done with AutoIt.


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

That's where I got the CopyMembership.vbs from...

It copies the memberships from one User to another.

I eventually need it for COmputer group transfers so I've been learning how to manipulate AD from AutoIt here:
