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

 


√-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.


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)

      Hello friends, I have a query, it happens that I have a matrix nxn, the first column of this contains each cell a number with 21 digits, when I pass this matrix to Excel I obviously write that number as 1,10016E + 20, I solved it by adding a * at the end of each cell, but I want it to be written as a text so that I do not have to remove that *, I searched in Google but could not find an effective solution, thanks in advance.

      Hi, This is my first post on the AutoIt Forums, I most of the time was able to get help from this community by merely searching though google and have been able to solve hundreds of problems this way, though in this case I was incapable of finding a solution to my problem. I am quite confident that it is a user error (And my fault) but I haven't been able to determine what I did wrong, any and all help would be greatly appreciated! I have uploaded my whole script pardon passwords to provide as much information as possible.
      I declared a global array at the top of the script and am having issues when I try to set it's value, and I fail to understand why.
      Error Message:

      Hey. I'm working on a new project and was wondering if there is a better way to "update" my Column E array. 
      Here is my code: 
      Local $nI  = 0                                                            ;Creates a name index of 0: nI = Name index Local $nII = 1                                                            ;Creates a name index of 1 for second loop: nII = Name Index 2 For    $iN = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1                                       ;Checks the roster for any names that appear twice      For $iN2 = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1          if $d_Names[$nI] == $d_Names[$nII] And $d_Names[$nII] <> "" Then              Local $timeSheetName = _ArraySearch($e_Names, $d_Names[$nI], 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)              ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Found it", $d_Names[$nI] & " In column E on Row " & $timeSheetName)              Local $eI  = $timeSheetName + 1              ;ConsoleWrite($timeSheetName & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite($eI & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)              _Excel_RangeInsert($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, "E" & $eI & ":F" & $eI, $xlShiftDown)                                                                          ;Inserts a empty cell in columns E and F.              _Excel_RangeWrite($OpenWorkbook, $OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $d_Names[$nII], "E" & $eI)                                                                         ;Fills the empty cell in columns E with the doubled name              $aArray_Index = 2                                           ;Array element counter              For $Index = 2 To $IndexRows Step 1                        ;Loops through every row in the Excel file unto no rows are found or a null row is found                  $Array_Value_E = _Excel_RangeRead($OpenWorkbook, Default, "E"&$Index)                  $e_names[$aArray_Index] = $Array_Value_E                ;While the code loops every value in column E is stored in the E array (updating the array)                  $aArray_Index += 1              Next              ExitLoop          EndIf      Next      $nI  += 1      $nII += 1 Next Basically, It checks a roster for people whose name appears twice then inserts a new "row" for that person because they work in two different departments.
      I have to find that name however in Column E if two appear in column D. My code works but I think it is not as efficient as it could be. 
      Any ideas on how to improve the "update" for my array?
      (once it finds the double names in Column D it then searches for that name by going name by name in the Column E array and once it finds it inserts a new row. However, the E array doesn't have that new row stored in it so I have to "update" the array to properly find the next name)
      Any and all tips would be greatly appreciated. 
       
      NOTE: Just assume I'm opening the excel file properly please do not add that code in, it only complicates your answer.
