StdinWrite and Special characters

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am working on a script that is gonna ease the domain migration of 100+ computers, one of the steps in the script is to create a local account and add it to the local administrators group. 

This all works fine on my test machine running english windows, but on a Swedish OS where the Administrator group is called "Administratörer" it doesnt find the group because it misinterprets the letter Ö.

Here is a short script demonstrating the same problem but when adding a user with Ö in the name. The result will be a user called "tempadmin÷"

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_requestedExecutionLevel=requireAdministrator


#include <Constants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>


$RunPid=Run(@ComSpec & ' /K', '',"",$STDIN_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD + $STDERR_CHILD)
Sleep(1500)
StdinWrite($RunPid, 'Net User ' & "tempadminö" & ' ' & "secretpassword" & ' /add' & @CRLF)
Sleep(2000)
$result=StdoutRead($RunPid)
StdinWrite($RunPid)
ProcessClose($RunPid)


MsgBox(4096,"test",$result)

 

I have tried playing around with chcp and cmd /U, cmd /A but haven't really gotten any where, is there anyone that can nudge me in the right direction?

FYI: to my knowledge this script must be compiled and then run as admin before it will create any user.

Hello,

You said that you used chcp with no result but as it is working to me, could you try this?.

$RunPid=Run(@ComSpec & ' /k chcp 1250', '',"",$STDIN_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD + $STDERR_CHILD)

Cheers,

I made some functions to help with languages changes.

I share it with you, maybe it can help.

It's very slow because of the use of Winnt object...

Local $sUser = "tempadminö"
Local $sPassword = "secretpassword"

Local $sAdminGroupName = _GetAdminGroupName()

If _CreateLocalUser($sUser, $sPassword) Then _AddUserToGroup($sAdminGroupName, $sUser)



Func _GetAdminGroupName()
    Local $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & @ComputerName & "\root\CIMV2")
    If $objWMIService = 0 Then SetError(1, 0, 0)
   
    $colGroup = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("select * from Win32_Group Where SID = 'S-1-5-32-544'")
    If NOT IsObj($colGroup) Then SetError(1, 0, 0)

    For $oGroup In $colGroup
        Return $oGroup.Name
    Next
    
    Return 0
EndFunc



Func _CreateLocalUser($sUsername, $sPassword, $bPasswordNeverExpires = 1, $bUserCannotChangePassword = 1)
    Local $colAccounts = ObjGet("WinNT://" & @ComputerName & "")
    Local $objUser = $colAccounts.Create("user", $sUsername)
    Local $Flags = $objUser.Get("UserFlags")
    
    $objUser.SetPassword($sPassword)

    If $bPasswordNeverExpires Then $Flags = BitOr($Flags, 0x10000)
    If $bUserCannotChangePassword Then $Flags = BitOr($Flags, 0x0040)
    
    $objUser.put("Userflags", $Flags )

    $objUser.setinfo
    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    
    Return 1
EndFunc



Func _AddUserToGroup($sGroup, $sUser)
    Local $objGroup = ObjGet("WinNT://" & @ComputerName & "/" & $sGroup & ",group")
    If NOT IsObj($objGroup) Then Return 0
    
    Local $objUser = ObjGet("WinNT://" & @ComputerName & "/" & $sUser & ",user")
    If NOT IsObj($objUser) Then Return 0
    
    $objGroup.Add($objUser.ADsPath)
    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    
    Return 1
EndFunc
