So I just got a new computer, and instantly went and installed Autoit onto it. I selected run script as default action when clicking on an au3 file, however every time I do this it opens the script in the editor. I can from there run the script no problem.
I've tried reinstalling and checking the settings by hitting "Ctrl+1" and have confirmed it is set to run, but yet it just continues to open in the editor.
Any ideas why this is happening or how to solve?
New system is windows 10, old was windows 7
Been looking for and playing around with a script that would prompt me for a UserName and Password then Map a network drive.
I have included the code:
#AutoIt3Wrapper_icon=your_icon.ico #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Obfuscator=y #obfuscator_parameters=/striponly #NoTrayIcon #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $Form1 = GUICreate("Connect To Your Drive", 265, 135) $username_id = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 88, 16, 153, 21) $password_id = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 87, 44, 153, 21, $ES_PASSWORD) GUICtrlCreateLabel("&Username", 24, 16, 52, 17) GUICtrlCreateLabel("&Password", 26, 46, 50, 17) $connect = GUICtrlCreateButton("&Connect", 24, 80, 217, 33, BitOr($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_BUTTON, $BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON)) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $connect $username = GUICtrlRead($username_id) $password = GUICtrlRead($password_id) If $username = '' Or $password = '' Then MsgBox(16, 'Error', 'Empty username or password') ContinueLoop EndIf If DriveMapGet("X:") <> '' Then ; very fast MsgBox(16, 'Error', 'The device is already assigned') ContinueLoop EndIf GUISetCursor(15,1) DriveMapAdd("X:", "\\Server\share\filestore\" & $username, 0, $username, $password) ; slow If @error Then Switch @error Case 1 $err_message = 'Undefined / Other error. Windows API return code: ' & @extended Case 2 $err_message = 'Access to the remote share was denied' Case 3 $err_message = 'The device is already assigned' Case 4 $err_message = 'Invalid device name' Case 5 $err_message = 'Invalid remote share' Case 6 $err_message = 'Invalid password' EndSwitch GUISetCursor(2) MsgBox(16, 'Error', $err_message) Else ; everything OK Exit EndIf EndSwitch WEnd
When I attempt the build I get the following:
Obfuscator support has been discontinued and is replaced by Au3Stripper using "#Au3Stripper_" directives.
! The directive to run Au3Stripper is: #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Au3Stripper=y ; Default is n
! #Au3Stripper_Parameters options are:
/pe : Replace and reference to a Global Const variable with its actual value.
/tl : Create Au3Stripper.Log with a trace of all actions.
/debug: add Debug information to Au3Stripper.Log.
/so : This is the default when no parameters are provided. same as /sf + /sv
/sf : Strip all unused Func's
/sv : Strip all unused Global var records.
/mo : Just merges the Include files into the source and strips the Comments.
This is similar to aut2exe and helps finding the errorline.
/mi : Sets the maximum Iterations Au3Stripper will perform. Default is 5.
/rm : Rename Variables and Functions to a shorter name.
/rsln: Replace @ScriptLineNumber with the actual line number.
/Beta: Use Beta Includes.
- Icon not found: your_icon.ico ==> Changing to default ICON.

When I attempt to run the executable I get the following:
Many thanks in advance
Im trying to launch a .exe file that is nested within the program files (x86) folder structure. i have already used the standard RunAs Syntax and found that it fails to launch the application. I have switched to Run and that seems to work. My issue is I have to use RunAs as the applicaton would need to run under a completely different account. The Current logged in user is a Local User on the machine, however, the application must be run as a domain user. The Machine is domain connected.
have tried the following:
RunAs("username","logonpassword", $RUN_LOGON_PROFILE, "D:\Program Files (x86)\Vendor\Application Name\Exe Location\Executable.exe") The above fails to launch, there are no errors or syntax issues, it just does nothing when the variables are replaced for the correct values.
I did the same using the Run command
Run("D:\Program Files (x86)\Vendor\Application Name\Exe Location\Executable.exe") That seems to work fine, but runs in local user context. Any thoughts? Could it be a local Machine rights issue? Or have i missed something glaring in my script
i have searched a lot about how to run external programs with the administrator privileges without the script running with administrator privileges using autoit
But all my attempts failed
Finally, today I found the VBS function doing this task
I immediately transferred it to our beloved language (autoit) and i decided to share it with you
i hope you like it
This is a simple example about how to use the function
runAsAdmin("cmd.exe", "/c @echo off & cls & echo test & pause", "c:\", @sw_show)
this is the function
func runAsAdmin($program, $parameters = "", $workingDir = @workingDir, $show = "") local $oShell = OBJCreate("Shell.Application") if isOBJ($oShell) then local $result = $oShell.ShellExecute($program, $parameters, $workingDir, "runas", $show) else $result = false endIf return $result endFunc
The Run command on my machine suddenly stopped execution.
Anyone of you facing the same issue?
#include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <FileConstants.au3.> #RequireAdmin $ExeName = FileOpenDialog("Select AutoIt executable", @ScriptDir & "\", "(*.exe)", $FD_FILEMUSTEXIST) If not @error Then If FileExists($ExeName) Then $iPID = Run($ExeName, "", @SW_HIDE, $STDIN_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) If @error Then msgbox(0,"Failed", "Failed execution with @error: " & @error) EndIf Else Msgbox(0,"", "File does not exist") EndIf EndIf The above code always fails to execute the executable file. It was working perfect and stopped working now.
I have tried adding the files and folders to windows defender exclusion list and uninstalling the anti virus but still no luck.
