I'm having a heck of a time trying to figure out how to call/invoke a WMI method through Autoit. I have a Powershell script that checks if a reboot is required using multiple checks including a WMI method related to ConfigMgr/SCCM but I want to do this in Autoit because I have a script that does other things and prompts the user to reboot if needed. I've given up on trying to make Autoit run the Powershell script and capture the true/false return value so since I know how to do everything the Powershell script does in Autoit, minus this WMI method call, I figured I'd take a stab at doing all of it in Autoit.

The WMI method involved is called DetermineIfRebootPending in the root\ccm\ClientSDK namespace in the CCM_ClientUtilities class. I've done some searching on the forums here and saw many references to the Scriptomatic so I downloaded that and when I run it, since (I'm guessing) there are no properties in the CCM_ClientUtilities class, it doesn't show up as an available option in the class dropdown (see attached image), so it doesn't seem like Scriptomatic is going to help me here unless I'm missing something. Here is the Powershell part that I'd like to convert to Autoit.

$CCMClientSDK = $null
$CCMSplat = @{
     NameSpace='ROOT\ccm\ClientSDK'
     Class='CCM_ClientUtilities'
     Name='DetermineIfRebootPending'
     ComputerName=$ComputerName
     ErrorAction='SilentlyContinue'
}
$CCMClientSDK = Invoke-WmiMethod @CCMSplat

If ($CCMClientSDK.IsHardRebootPending -or $CCMClientSDK.RebootPending)
{
     $SCCMReboot = $true
}

So as you can see, its invoking the DetermineIfRebootPending method and then checking the IsHardRebootPending and RebootPending properties to see if they are True or False. If either are true, it sets the $SCCMReboot to true and later on down the script, it returns that value to the pipeline after checking some other registry locations to determine if reboot is required. 

If anyone could help me either 1) convert the above code to Autoit or 2) figure out how to run the powershell script from within Autoit and capture the return value, I'd be forever grateful. Thanks!

For all WMI related stuff Scriptomatic in the Example Scripts Section is a good starting point. It creates AutoIt scripts to query WMI for you.

      For my next project I would like to send files with "alternate data streams" by email in ZIP format.
      I can not use any external program like 7-Zip or WinRAR. (They would fit😥)
      Who knows how to create a ZIP file with "alternate data streams" included with the Powershell command "Compress-Archive"? 
      Here a test script:  (save as "ADSTester.cmd")
      @rem Try to create a zip file with alternate data streams (ADS) included @rem Housekeeping @cls @del ADSTester.zip >nul: @RD /S /Q Extracted >nul: @del ADSTester.txt >nul: @rem End of Housekeeping echo This is the ADSTester.txt file >ADSTester.txt echo This is the ADSTester.txt:Part1 file >ADSTester.txt:Part1 echo This is the ADSTester.txt:Part2 file >ADSTester.txt:Part2 dir /r ADSTester.txt @rem See the 3 files @rem **************************************************************** @rem **************************************************************** @rem Please alter the next lines to include the alternate data streams. powershell Compress-Archive -Path .\ADSTester.txt -Update -DestinationPath ADSTester.zip powershell Expand-Archive -Path ADSTester.zip -DestinationPath .\Extracted\ dir /r Extracted\ADSTester.txt @rem Only one file left :-( pause

      Which Powershell command in the PowerCLI module for VMware ESX used to interact with UI apps?
       
      When I launch any exe/any exeutable using powercli on guest VM using powercli command.
      Invoke-VMScript, I am able to run them in the background but not in the foreground.
       
      i.e., UI apps are not launching but showing the background as running in the task manager.
       
      We need our UI Automation scripts to execute in the VM, but it is not working.
       
      We are able to do in virtualbox and hyper-v but not in vmware esx using powercli.
       
      Please suggest.

      Hello and Good Day to All!
      I am trying to install .NET 3.5 on Windows 10 x64bit via autoit (via ShellExecuteWait + PowerShell).
      If I run this line, it will runs without issues:
      ShellExecuteWait('PowerShell.exe', '-executionpolicy Bypass -File "' & @ScriptDir & '\OJP83BU523.ps1' & '"') "OJP83BU523.ps1" contains: DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFX3 /All /Source:D:\Sources\sxs /LimitAccess
      However, since I won't know in advance the drive letter of the "sources" folder, I created a script to generate a PowerShell Script to give a correct path for it.
      With the modified script below, PowerShell only blinks and nothing happens
      ShellExecuteWait('PowerShell.exe', '-executionpolicy Bypass -File "' & @ScriptDir & '\' & $filename & '"') or
      ShellExecuteWait('PowerShell.exe', '-executionpolicy Bypass -File "' & $filename & '"')  
      I wish I know the difference with "$filename" and "\OJP83BU523.ps1" usage, as for me, it should be the same.
      Attached is my entire autoit script.
      any help is appreciated!, many thanks in advance!

      There are a number of posts on the forum regarding use of Selenium in AutoIt. I recently had a go at using the PowerShell Selenium module, and was amazed at how easy it is. Thought I would post an example here; if anyone is interested this could probably be incorporated into AutoIt code pretty easily. 
      Pre-Req - The true star of this script is the ChroPath extension, available for Edge, Chrome and FireFox. With it installed, you just click on the element, select Inspect, and then ChroPath generates the XPath to the element for you. Here is an example based on a simple form I created on one of my sites.
      $myForm = Start-SeChrome -StartURL "http://logancomputerser.com/Appointment.html" -Maximized $firstName = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_First']" $lastName = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_Last']" $address = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_Street1']" $city = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_City']" $zip = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_Zip']" $state = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//select[@id='formElement_State']" $phoneDay = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_DaytimePhone']" $phoneNight = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_EveningPhone']" $email = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_liamE']" $user = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_48564']" $pw = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_f403c']" $submit = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='wstForm_Contact_Submit']" $reset = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='wstForm_Contact_Reset']" Send-SeKeys -Element $firstName -Keys "Joe" Send-SeKeys -Element $lastName -Keys "Blow" Send-SeKeys -Element $address -Keys "111 S. Main St." Send-SeKeys -Element $city -Keys "AnyCity" Send-SeKeys -Element $zip -Keys "90210" Send-SeKeys -Element $state -Keys "CA" Send-SeKeys -Element $phoneDay -Keys "555.867.5309" Send-SeKeys -Element $phoneNight -Keys "555.888.1212" Send-SeKeys -Element $email -Keys "1Adam12@gmail.com" Send-SeKeys -Element $user -Keys "JBlow" Send-SeKeys -Element $pw -Keys "MyPassword" Start-Sleep 1 Invoke-SeClick -Element $submit Stop-SeDriver -Driver $myForm  
      As mentioned, this is just another way to skin the cat, but I found it a pretty fast way to initiate some easy testing in Selenium, and have used it a couple of times in projects now, both straight through PowerShell and wrapped in AutoIt.
