Just had an idea and wanted to know where to start. I want to download a screenshot of a website automatically into a .png .jpg ect format so I can then set it as my desktop background.
This might be for for news: When the latest news is added to a website a screenshot of that website is saved and added to my desktop background.
I have tried using website that already do the screenshot but you have to open the website and click the button for it to generate one and thus InetGet does not help.
Hi, for a script of mine, I wish to keep a time frame on till how the program will work.. basically, I want the program to read the date and if the read date < 'a particular date', the program continues, else it exit. I don't want to read the time from the computer as the program can be fooled by resetting the pc time. is there a way to read time from internet - so that the user cannot fool the program by date reset? thanks
I have an aws cloud machine where I kept all the build process to create some set of zip files and uploading them to OneDrive.
Once it is completed, I have another local machine in our environment which is a acting as a local share server also.
Is there anyway to notify this machine(without public IP) to start downloading these files.
I have written an AutoIT exe to download these files and copy them to respective locations.But don't know how to notify this from the remote machine.
Help please: AutoIT mapping network drive in WinPE 10 does not work, but a batch file or command line does!By ModemJunki
I solved it - only had to add a sleep for 10 seconds or so to make sure the shell could see the I.P. address change.
I'm working in Windows PE environment (10.0.10586). I think I have some permissions issue related to AutoIT
I've tried with Net Share and with DriveMapAdd - neither work.
So finally I made the script output a batch file with a pause and what I found is that in WinPE, the batch file behaves differently if it's run at the command prompt or if it is spawned by AutoIT.
If spawned by AutoIT, the net use command gives error 1231 "The network location cannot be reached". I assume this is the same problem that DriveMapAdd is having.
But if I run the same batch file under the command shell in the Windows PE instance, it works.
I also made a simple test with Ping() and it always returns 1 (host is offline) but I can ping it from the command line in the same PE session.
Are there service dependencies for this to work? What is preventing AutoIT from accessing the network?
Below sample is kind of dirty but illustrates what I'm doing. Could use a lot more refinement for error checking etc.
