First Script Problems

Recommended Posts


Basically i have a script which allows you to enter workstation names into a GUI and click submit, on submit it will run two simple commands via DOS on a loop with the workstation name changed each time.

I'm currently using the code below which doesn't seem to be working for me but i may be setting the variables wrong and how do i get the DOS window to stay active instead of terminating?

The code below runs and displays the GUI, allows me to enter a workstation name and click Run but the CMD windows flashes then dissappears.

$Form1 = GUICreate("Toolbox", 419, 342, 513, 226)
$PageControl1 = GUICtrlCreateTab(0, 8, 444, 336)
$TabSheet2 = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Program")
$Edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 8, 56, 393, 241)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "Edit1")
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 8, 400, 0, "Arial")
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Run Script", 320, 304, 89, 25)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial")
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Clear Text", 16, 304, 81, 25)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial")
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter the workstation names below that you would like to remotely DelProf", 8, 32, 407, 19)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 9, 400, 0, "Arial")
$Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Export Script", 216, 304, 89, 25)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial")
$Button4 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Import File", 112, 304, 89, 25)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 400, 0, "Arial")

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $Button1

$EditValue = GUICtrlRead($Edit1) 
$StartService = 
$DelProf = 


Func workstation()
    RunWait (@ComSpec & " /k sc" & $EditValue & "config remoteregistry start= auto && sc" & $EditValue & "start remoteregistry pause" )
    RunWait (@ComSpec & " /k @C:\Program\Program.exe /c:" & $EditValue & "/u /ed:admin* /ed:123* )

Also how would i get multiple workstations that have been entered, i've been reading up that i could use StringSplit but then how would i get it to loop the two commands for each workstation?

Any help would be appreciated,

Any errors in your command-line may be causing it to fail.

I'm not aware you can pass something like


You need to be careful with conflicts too. C:\Program could be seen by the DOS interpreter as meaning C:\Program Files but incorrectly, as it should be something like C:\Progra~1 without quotes.
