RunOnce

6 posts in this topic

I only have this in the msgbox.exe

MsgBox(0,"1","Test")

I have added a key to the RunOnce registry and it works.

RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce", "SCCM", "REG_SZ", "%logonserver%\netlogon\msgbox.Exe")

But when I reboot and I login to the computer I expect a msgbox to apear, but it does not.

Why can that be?


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

Did you compile the executable to require admin credentials?

Programs in RunOnce are run before the user has logged in.  I wrote a small script to delete every instance of index.dat on my C: drive.  I set it to RunOnce.  It could delete all the index.dat files because the user had not logged in yet(even if there is no explict login screen because the user login is automatic with no password.)  What happened in my case is I could see the system wait for all the files to be deleted before I got the desktop.

I guess it is similar to running a program as a service in that there should be no user interface.  RunOnce is most used by installers that clean up no longer needed files during the reboot after an install.

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

#RequireAdmin

If IsAdmin() Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "The script is running with admin rights.")

I tried this, but I get no messagebox.

How is it possible for me to continue a installation after a reboot?

I just learned this by searching now.  There is a program in system32 called runonce.exe.  Evidently it is a wrapper for the RunOnce key that kludges around the login issue.  You might ask on Inno Setup forum as that install maker is pretty open and the author may be willing to discus the nuances of the install spanning booting.

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
      Thx

      Hello. Im trying to make my scripts safe - unnable to decompile. I search for obfuscators and other security methods but the search has come to nothing.
      Then one guy gave that idea below. If I rightly understood this idea lets we talk about example program with this secutiy method.
      Program have two parts, first is only login gui and the second part is the main program Second part (main program) is uploaded on ftp server lets say that on http://xxx/autoit/main_program.au3 So we have the first gui with login, we put correctly login and pass and this is the moment when code from http://xxx/autoit/main_program.au3 will be downloaded and executed Finally main program will be appear This is the similiar way like new games are protected by cracking.
      I have few questions in this moment about this:
      Is something like that even possible to do with the autoit? First part of program (login gui) must have somewhere given that link to download the rest of code - http://xxx/autoit/main_program.au3 to make it execute. As we know this first part of program is easy able to hack and retrieve this web url http://xxx/autoit/main_program.au3 where located is main part of program. Is the way to encrypt or secure it? If only code will be stored in .php we know it cannot be previewed. So it could for example get code from .php file instead of .au3 I know that methods works in other languages (I dont know exactly how) thats becouse I only speculates, maybe something may looks different in these solution? Other way would be compiling second part of code on web server (there are available web autoit servers) maybe this way is possible? Tell me anything U know about this ideas and if its even possible to achieve.
      Thanks for ur any response, advice or thoughts
