How to scan, and record locations of exes


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if autoit is capable of scanning, and recording to an ini file, the locations of exes in a directory, AND it's subdirectoies (Even if you don't know their names)

I'm trying to setup a security software for my school.

Thanks in advance.

Try the DOS batch file command DIR C:\*.EXE /S > yourfile.ini

This is standard DOS stuff thats been around for years.

Comment: Some executable files are not "exe"s - DLL's, SCR's, etc, and often students will rename things to keep them from prying eyes and careless administrators.

I've used the script that you suggested, however, i would wish that it dir'd "C:\Documents And Settings\User" for exe's i've tried doing it using my limited DOS knowlage, however i haven't been able to get it to work.

Alternatively:

You could help me anylize the lengthy log file that is generated for the portion that entails the directory.

This is the code i've started:

$LogTag = FileOpen(@ScriptDir&"\logfile.ini", 0)

$log = _FileCountLines(@ScriptDir&"\logfile.ini")

While 1=1

$line = FileReadLine($LogTag)

If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop

If $line = " Directory of ......" Then

;This is where i need help!

Endif

Endif

Wend
