ProcessWait and ProcessWaitClose

Recommended Posts


Since upgraded to autoit (from these funtions seems to not work at all.

example, I have several such check to install vcredists :

; vcredist 2005_sp1 x64 MFC
$var = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{ad8a2fa1-06e7-4b0d-927d-6e54b3d31028}", "DisplayVersion")
If $var <> "8.0.61000" Then
    $command = '\\GANESH\Ressources\Repository\GlobalNetwork\VCredist\Microsoft_VC_2005_SP1_MFC\vcredist_x64.EXE /q'
    RunAs($Loginadmin, @ComputerName, $Passadmin, 0, $command, @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)
    ProcessWait("vcredist_x64.EXE", 400)
    ProcessWaitClose("vcredist_x64.EXE", 400)
    _report("Installed vdredist 2005_sp1 x64 MFC")
; vcredist 2005_sp1 x86 MFC
$var = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{710f4c1c-cc18-4c49-8cbf-51240c89a1a2}", "DisplayVersion")
If $var <> "8.0.61001" Then
    $command = '\\GANESH\Ressources\Repository\GlobalNetwork\VCredist\Microsoft_VC_2005_SP1_MFC\vcredist_x86.EXE /q'
    RunAs($Loginadmin, @ComputerName, $Passadmin, 0, $command, @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)
    ProcessWait("vcredist_x86.EXE", 400)
    ProcessWaitClose("vcredist_x86.EXE", 400)
    _report("Installed vcredist 2005_sp1 x86 MFC")

or :

$Command = 'ROBOCOPY "mysourcepath" "mydestpath" /E'
$PID = RunAs($Loginadmin, @ComputerName, $Passadmin, 0, $Command, @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)
ProcessWaitClose($PID, 200)

in both cases, all command goes all in a few milliseconds, not waiting previous ProcessWaitClose

What's wrong with such code ??

Does the process actually run? What's the return from the RunAs command? Also, remove the @SW_HIDE from the RunAs command lines until you can see what is happening when you attempt to run the programs.

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.

Yes the process run fine. Didn't tried return code, will do.

Anyway, I've changed all these to RunAsWait and RunWait and seems lot better. Just there is no timeout, but I can live with that.

I never had such problem with previous autoit version so I really suspect a bug here !
