Error parsing function call

3 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

This is my first post in this forum, as I have never been able to help anyone as I am a proper n00b on Autoit, nor have I had the need to ask about anything since this forum normally has all the answers (together with the help docs). Now, however, I dont know where to start. I have created a script that should run with defined account details, uninstall and install a software called 'therefore'. If I run the msi straight off as an admin, it works fine, by itself as well as with the added line /qb REMOTESERVER=MYSERVER, but when executing it with my script, it uninstalls the old version fine, also installs the prerequisite softwares fine but at the end I get the error on line 1277, Error parsing function call and I suspect that it has something to do with my specified parameters with msiexec.exe. I have tried to compile the script for both x86 and x64 but no luck. I have tried to specify working directory but that doesnt work at all. I tried to get information about what happens on line 1277 in the exe but I cant figure out how to catch that issue. Any help at all is very appreciated! This is my code, I have edited to keep out internal information.

;I have tried to run just the install without the regkey if-statement. I have also tried:

;$iPid = RunAs($userName, $domain, $password, 0, 'msiexec.exe /i "SERVERPATH\Therefore Client\TheClientx64.msi" /qb REMOTESERVER=REMOTESERVERNAME', "", @SW_ENABLE)
;I suspect that it is "" '' or something like that that is ignoring the end of the msiexec-statement but apparently something is not done right.
Func installmsi()
    $Reg = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Therefore\Installation", "InstallVersion")
    if $Reg = "13.0.2" Then
        ;MsgBox(0,"","Therefore är redan installerat, reparerar.")
        $iPid = RunAs($userName, $domain, $password, 1, 'msiexec.exe /fvomus "SERVERPATH\Therefore Client\TheClientx64.msi" /qb REMOTESERVER=REMOTESERVERNAME', "", @SW_ENABLE)
    Else ;@error = 1 then
        ;MsgBox(0,"","Therefore är inte installerat, installerar.")
        $iPid = RunAs($userName, $domain, $password, 1, 'msiexec.exe /i "SERVERPATH\Therefore Client\TheClientx64.msi" /qb REMOTESERVER=REMOTESERVERNAME', "", @SW_ENABLE)
    While ProcessExists($iPid)
EndFunc   ;==>installmsi

(And the information given in splash screens is in sSwedish) :)
