Stop a service require an answer

12 posts in this topic

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

 


√-1 2^3 ∑ π, and it was delicious!

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.

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)

      I am maintaining all the reusable code in a separate file as library.au3.
      In that file I have referenced some dependent files using fileinstall, so that they will be extracted when necessary.
       
      Problem is, if I use a function in the library.au3 in another script which doesn't require this dependent file, as I am including the whole file using include tag, it is embedding that file also.
      Is there any way to exclude that.
