Script exits immediately in SciTE

Recommended Posts


Can anyone say why this script exits immediately in SciTE?  Its strange, SciTE reports that the script has finished even though its still running in the background.  As a result, I am not getting output written to the SciTE console and my for loop at line 20 is only executed once.  SciTE actually reports that the script has finished executing before my test MsgBox on line 11! 

Here's the code:

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>


Global $servers[1]
Global $arrMA[1]
$CommServes = "cs1,cs2"
$CommServes = StringSplit($CommServes,",")
$CommServes = _ArrayUnique($CommServes,1,1)

$strPassword = InputBox("Enter Password","Enter Password for user","","•",200,135)

For $cs in $CommServes


Func CSConnect()

ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "Connecting to " & $cs)
    RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c qlogin -cs " & $cs & " -csn " & $cs & " -u admin -clp " & $strPassword & "|clip", @WindowsDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDOUT_CHILD)
    $result = ClipGet()
    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & ClipGet())
    If StringInStr($result,"Error") > 0 Then
        MsgBox(4096,"Logon Error","Error during logon attempt.  Exiting" & @CRLF & @CRLF & $result)
        RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c qlist mediaagent -cs " & $cs & "|clip", @WindowsDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDOUT_CHILD)
        $qlist = ClipGet()
        $qlist = StringStripWS(StringReplace($qlist,@CRLF,","),$STR_STRIPALL)
        If StringRight($qlist,1) = "," Then $qlist = StringTrimRight($qlist,1)
        $qlist = StringSplit($qlist,",")
        $qlist = _ArrayToString($qlist,",")
        ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "Disconnecting from " & $cs)
        RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c qlogout -cs " & $cs & "|clip", @WindowsDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDOUT_CHILD)
        ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & ClipGet())


Func ScanThem($ma)
    $strComputer = $ma
    $PS = Run("powershell.exe get-wmiobject -computer " & $strComputer & " win32_volume | where-object {$_.driveletter -eq $null -and $_.caption -NotLike '\\?\Volume*'} | select ""@{Name='Date';Expression={$((Get-Date).ToString('MM-dd-yyyy'))}},@{Name='Media Agent';Expression={$_.systemname}},@{Name='Mount Path';Expression={$_.Caption}},@{Name='Capacity (GB)';expression={[math]::round(($_.Capacity/ 1073741824),2)}},@{Name='FreeSpace (GB)';expression={[math]::round(($_.FreeSpace/ 1073741824),2)}}""|Export-CSV C:\export.csv -notype -append",@SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDOUT_CHILD)
    $result = StdoutRead($PS)

The #RequireAdmin function forces the script to run as administrator.

Since your SciTE is not run as admin it can't execute your script with admin privileges, so it won't be the owner of your process.

Thanks guys.  That was correct.  I am not sure what happened, but I had the same SciTE process open all weekend and suddenly it started doing that this morning (between edits actually) despite the fact that #RequireAdmin was there all along. Sure enough, re-launching SciTE as an elevated process got it working once again.
