Stop a service require an answer

Recommended Posts

Valnurat

Hi,

If I run this:

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'net stop ' & '"' & "Windows Management Instrumentation" &'"', "", @SW_SHOW)

I get a question if it is ok to closed other services. I would like to send the letter "y" and the "Enter".

How can this be done?

Or is there another way to stop a service?


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

@Valnurat you can use WMI to stop/start the service. I would suggest searching the forum for ScriptOMatic. Here is an example snippet you should be able to modify to your needs:

#RequireAdmin
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

$oWMI = ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\.\root\cimv2")
$oServiceList = $oWMI.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service where DisplayName='Windows Search'")

For $sService in $oServiceList
    MsgBox($MB_OK, "", $sService.Name)
    $sService.StopService()
Next

Thank you for the hint.

I tried it, but the service will not stop.

 

#RequireAdmin
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

$oWMI = ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\.\root\cimv2")
$oServiceList = $oWMI.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service where DisplayName='Windows Management Instrumentation'")

For $sService in $oServiceList
;    MsgBox($MB_OK, "", $sService.Name)
    $sService.StopService()
Next

 


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

Eh, you're using WMI to stop WMI...let's think about that one for a second :)

I found out I can do this:

#RequireAdmin
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'net stop ' & '"' & "Windows Management Instrumentation" &'" /y', "", @SW_SHOW)

What Logan means is that you tried to stop the WMI service in your example , using WMI :) . Try with WMI to stop another service and it should work.

Yes, I get it now, but I need to stop WMI service so I can delete a folder that it used by SMS.

Are you sure WMI is responsible for locking the folder for deletion ? What is the full path ?

If we have problems with SCCM we has a procedure to stop WMI.

We can't delete C:\Windows\system32\wbem\Repository because it is locked.

Services as "SMS Agent Host" are depending of WMI. I think SMS Agent Host is locking the folder we should delete.


Yours sincerely

Yes , this is a WMI folder. So you cant use the WMI to stop the service = stop it with the :

#RequireAdmin
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'net stop ' & '"' & "Windows Management Instrumentation" &'" /y', "", @SW_SHOW)

      My program has to first search for names in Column D that do not match up with column C. I got that search to work using arrays. It was slow and I could not figure out how to delete them so I just manually put coded the names that do not belong. I found their cell location but I do not know how to store that location and delete it.
      This is what I have so far.
      Local $NameToDelete1[6]  = _Excel_RangeFind($OpenWorkbook, "Smith, Bill") _ArrayDisplay($NameToDelete1, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment") _Excel_RangeDelete($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $NameToDelete1[2], $xlShiftUp)  
      Please help, I wanted to have this program done yesterday but I did not see this problem until yesterday.

      So Im trying to make a simple 2d game and make some sort of collision detection so why not to make a 2 dimensional array but i have no clue how  to write it in multiple lines
      Global $map[5,5] = [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0] something like this but it doesn't work

      #include "..\Include\Array.au3" #include "..\Include\File.au3" #include "..\Include\AutoItConstants.au3" Local $aRetArray Local $sFilePath = "n.csv" _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, ",") ; _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, $FRTA_COUNT, ",") _ArrayDisplay($aRetArray, "Original", Default, 8) The above code shows two versions of _FileReadToArray and both don't work as expected.
      The first one doesn't use the comma as a delimiter. (so I get a single column array)  I tried adding "Default" between $aRetArray and "," then it told me it had an incorrect number of parameters. 

      I looked again at the documentation:
       
      #include <File.au3> _FileReadToArray ( $sFilePath, ByRef $vReturn [, $iFlags = $FRTA_COUNT [, $sDelimiter = ""]] )
      And I with or without the flags params I should be getting a 2D array due to my file being a csv. 
      I then tried a regular flag, $FRTA_COUNT, and it tells me that I'm using a variable $FRTA_COUNT while it's not declared. Tried putting in 1 instead and it told me again, incorrect number of params.

      I need to perform a subtotal in excel and I would like to automate this process using Autoit if possible like always any and all help will be greatly appreciated. 
      I can not find a good example but the two from Microsoft. Here is one of the two from msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vba/excel-vba/articles/range-subtotal-method-excel
      I do not really understand how to translate this into AutoIt, but I gave it a try and here is what I have.
      $OpenRange      = "A1:E200" $xlSum          = -4157 $Added_Array[2] = [2, 3] $OpenRange.Subtotal("B1", $xlSum, $Added_Array, True, False, True) I just need to perform a subtotal on a range based on a header called department, and then perform a sum on the results.

      How to use _Excel_RangeSort to sort my excel file by three different headers Column A1, B1, and C1 have headers on which I want to sort by. The headers on which I want to sort are department, employee type, and name.
      I still really new to AutoIt so I do not actually know how to properly start this line or lines of code, to be honest. The example code is the best I can do.
      _Excel_RangeSort($OpenWorkbook, Default, "A1:C1", "1:1", $xlDescending, Default, $xlYes, Default, $xlSortRows) I just need to sort by those three headers in that order of department, employee type, and name, plus in descending order.
       
      any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!
