Runas with @comspec

Recommended Posts


Hello all !


I try to make an Runas with @comspec here my code:

RunAs($sUserName, $sDomain, $sPassword, 0, @ComSpec & " /c copy prefs.js" @AppDataDir & "MozillaFirefox" & $IniRead & "", "", @SW_HIDE)

but no copy :(

I can't use a #requiadmin cause i need to get the real @AppDataDir from the computer, not the @AppDataDir from the runas... and impossible to use Filecopy cause i need more rights...

Try this:

RunAs($sUserName, $sDomain, $sPassword, 0, @ComSpec & " /c copy prefs.js " &  @AppDataDir & "\Mozilla\Firefox\" & $IniRead & "\", "", @SW_HIDE)

You were missing a space between the .js and the closing quote, and also missing "&" between that quote and @AppDataDir.

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.

You may have to set the WorkingDir parameter, or use the full path for prefs.js.

RunAs($sUserName, $sDomain, $sPassword, 0, @ComSpec & ' /c copy "' & $sFullPath & '\prefs.js" "' &  @AppDataDir & '\Mozilla\Firefox\' & $IniRead & '\"', '', @SW_HIDE)
