WMI Object not working with #RequireAdmin

Recommended Posts

lrstndm

Hi all,

I have a problem with a script when I run it as admin. I am trying to get all the mapped drives from the local pc. This is the script I am using

;~ #RequireAdmin ; This switch is going wrong

#include <Array.au3>

If isAdmin() then
    MsgBox(0,"ADMIN","ADMIN")
Else
    MsgBox(0,"NOT ADMIN","NOT ADMIN")
EndIf

$x = getMappedDrives()
_ArrayDisplay($x)

Func getMappedDrives()
    Dim $aDrives[0][2]
    $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & @LogonDomain & "\root\CIMV2")
    $sQuery = "Select * From Win32_LogicalDisk Where DriveType = 4"
    $colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery($sQuery, "WQL", 48)

    If IsObj($colItems) Then
        For $objItem In $colItems
            ReDim $aDrives[UBound($aDrives) + 1][2]
            $aDrives[UBound($aDrives) - 1][0] = $objItem.DeviceID
            $aDrives[UBound($aDrives) - 1][1] = $objItem.ProviderName
        Next
        Return $aDrives
    Else
        SetError(-1, -1, -1)
    EndIf
EndFunc

When I run it without the '#RequireAdmin' switch it works fine. When I turn on the '#RequireAdmin' switch is gives me an empty array.

This code is part of a bigger project and my project always runs as admin. I dont know why it is doing this, because I am not using #RequireAdmin in the project.

Is there an other better way to get the mapped drives that works for me? Or am I doing something wrong?

I hope someone can help me.

Regards,

When using #RequireAdmin a new process with elevated permissions and a new environment is being started. This process does not inherit mapped drives from the starting process.
Search the forum. There has been some discussion on this subject lately.

But then why is my project running as administrator when I don't want that? Could you explain that?

Do you have some links about these discussions?

You are sure you removed or commented the "#Requiredmin" line? And then compiled the script again?

Yes I am sure. But the project I am compiling is much bigger. I read something about some features (from windows) that will ask the program for administrator permissions if you use them. Is that possible? How can I overrule it then?

You could insert

MsgBox(0, "", "The current user has administrator privileges: " & IsAdmin())

to make sure about the used privileges.

      Good evening everyone
      I'm working on a little project of mines, and I was trying to use WMI Object.
      The question which I don't find an answer is: 
      Once I do the query with WMI Object, something like "SELECT * FROM Win32_LogonSession", instead of specify the field of the collection returned, ( i.e. $colItems.Caption ), can I loop though each property and each value of the property, writing so one row of code only?
      Hope my question was clear enough.
      Thanks in advance.

      Best Regards.

      Hello,
      I am trying to make a program that will uninstall some software, provided by some form of a list. I have this
      ; Generated by AutoIt Scriptomatic June 08, 2010 ;#RequireAdmin $sPartialName="java" $wbemFlagReturnImmediately = 0x10 $wbemFlagForwardOnly = 0x20 $colItems = "" $strComputer = "localhost" ;$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $strComputer & "\root\CIMV2") ;$objWMIService=ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & @ComputerName & "\root\cimv2") $objWMIService=ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & @ComputerName & "\root\cimv2") $colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_Product", "WQL", $wbemFlagReturnImmediately + $wbemFlagForwardOnly) If IsObj($colItems) then For $objItem In $colItems If StringInStr($objItem.Name,$sPartialName)=1 Then ConsoleWrite("Full name:" & $objItem.Name & @CRLF) RunAs("USERNAME",@ComputerName,"PASSWORD",0,@ComSpec & " /c" & ' wmic product where name="Java 9.0.4 (64-bit)" call uninstall /nointeractive',"C:\WINDOWS\system32\wbem",@SW_MAXIMIZE) ;Run('wmic product where name="Java 9.0.4 (64-bit)" call uninstall /nointeractive',"",@SW_MAXIMIZE) ExitLoop EndIf Next Else Msgbox(0,"WMI Output","No WMI Objects Found for class: " & "Win32_Product" ) Endif The script above fails uninstalling software despite providing username and password for admin account. If I run script with admin rights then the software gets uninstalled.
      At the following link there is a script by JLogan3o13 but it does not either uninstall software, unless run as admin..
      Is there some way to uninstall software using wim or wimc by providing user name and password?

       Hello all"
      I have curious problem with com object implementation of Sapi 5.1.
      In some cases }Some Voice engines] the metods for retrieve the voice parameters fails with error :Member not exists:.
      But the Retrieved Voice object can speak the given text, so It exists and work.
      Example of this type of Engine can be this one: http://download.kobavision.be/KobaSpeech3/KobaSpeech 3 With Vocalizer Serena - English (Great Britain).exe (can work as demo)
      So my question is> Is there some way to workaround or solve this issue?
      What i tryed:
      1. Typical use of Sapi.spvoice object:
      $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc"); Install a custom error handler
       
        $spvoice = ObjCreate("sapi.spvoice")
      for $voice in $spvoice.getvoices()
        msgbox(0, "Voice", $voice.getdescription())
      next
      Func MyErrFunc()
      $HexNumber = hex($oMyError.number, 8)
      Msgbox(0,"","We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF &"Number is: " & $HexNumber & @CRLF &"Windescription is: " & $oMyError.windescription)
      SetError(1)
      Endfunc

      2. Implement workaround based on Nvda Screen reader sapi5 Library at https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/blob/master/source/synthDrivers/sapi5.py
      Thys code in Pascal should work, so i tryed to reproduce it in Autoit.
      Pascal code just as example:
                   SOTokens:=SpVoice.GetVoices('','');
                   for i:=0 to SOTokens.Count-1 do
                   try
                        SOToken:=SOTokens.Item(I); s:=SOToken.GetDescription(0);
      end
      In Autoit I tryed it like this:
      $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc"); Install a custom error handler
        $spvoice = ObjCreate("sapi.spvoice")
      for $i = 0 to $spvoice.getvoices.count-1
      $name = $spvoice.getvoices.item($i).getdescription
      msgbox(0,"Voice", $name)
      next
      Func MyErrFunc()
      $HexNumber = hex($oMyError.number, 8)
      Msgbox(0,"","We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF &"Number is: " & $HexNumber & @CRLF &"Windescription is: " & $oMyError.windescription)
      SetError(1)
      Endfunc
      Both of this methods returning same Error ("Member not exists.").
      Thanks a lot for help.
