Win10 suppresses Run() with @SW_HIDE option

Recommended Posts

Hi

Only on some Windows 10 PCs do I get the issue that the Run() fails with the   @SW_HIDE = Hidden window (or Default keyword) option.  Not all Win10 machines, only some, but then consistently.  I have put UAC to lowest level, no joy.  As if the OS does not allow the hidden window to be created...

Seems that @SW_MINIMIZE = Minimized window or  @SW_MAXIMIZE = Maximized window does not suffer the same fate.

I will have more info in a day or so.

Anybody else with similar experience?

Whay do you mean "fails" and what do you execute? If I execute "cmd.exe" It works dfine for me with all three possible flags, although with the @SW_HIDE it looks like nothing happens, but the process is created and I can see it and kill it through the task manager. Is your @error set after execution?

My system info (found out my machine was still called w8-home :) ):

I use the Run to launch a batch file

I have had another look.  It does not fail. What I meant originally was that the process does not start.  I was wrong.

However, the batch file seems limited to local resources.

For instance, I execute lines like these:

net use f: \\myshare s0m3t1n /P:yes
start f: /max
c:
cd\
md textfilefolder
copy F:\*.txt c:\textfilefolder

note that the local commands all work.  The "net use" is executed, the local folder is created.  

The command "start f: /max" shows a Windows msgbox stating that the resource is not available and blocks the rest of the batch.

The copy from the mapped shared does not work.

And, yes, the remote PC is on an available for browsing in Explorer at this time.

I am guessing that this has something to do with privileges for the batch process... but not sure where to look.  

@SadBunny, I will look at the @error, good suggestion. Thx

Hi @Danp2, I may do that in due course.  How do I know the "net use " command works? Coz I see the mapped drive appear...

I have since learned about DACL :)

I believe the solutions to my problem lies here:

https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/134508-set-acl-permissions-udf/?page=7

I am first going to see if I can change the share settings manually, if I know that solves the problem, I can start looking at scripting the solution. WinXP was so much simpler... :)

Thanks, will revert

      Hello everyone!
      I've started this project alone in May 2020 as project in my spare time at work, I'm working for a IT compagny that's started opening their services to residential customers few months ago and now my position in the compagny kinda drifted in the doom and gloom world of repetitive tasks like: Reinstallation of Windows 10.
      The procedure is very repetitive and I started feeling like being a robot which is the main reason I started this project.
      ==============================FAQ==================================
      1. Q: Do you want this project to be accomplished with the usage of AutoIT ONLY or 3rd party tools / Scripts (BAT / CMD / VBS) ? A: No, if I cannot find a way using AutoIT to accomplish a task I will move to my Plan B which consist of automating an 3rd party tool to accomplish the affected task until a solution is found. 2. Q: What do I get from contributing/participating in this project? A: I will personally take the responsability to mention you in the credits of this project. 3. Q: If I have more questions, can I ask? A: Certainly! feel free to ask any questions related to this project! 4. Q: What is the main goal of this project? A: Automating Windows 10 configuration without user interaction needed (as much as possible) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
      Current progression of the project (more might be added in future)
      « Blue = Info || Yellow = Unfinished/Untested || Purple = Could be better || Green = Done ||Red = Not Yet Started »
      *** Very early Stage ***
      Connect Network Attached Storage(NAS) (Tested & Working - AutoIT only)
      Install Adobe Reader DC, 7zip, Google Chrome (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool)
      Change OEM Information (Tested & Working - contains both AutoIT version and CMD script)
      Disable ScreenSaver (Require testing AutoIT only)
      Change Computer Name (Require testing AutoIT only) 
      Change Default Browser (Work - using 3rd party tool)
      Change .pdf / .pdfxml from Edge to Adobe Reader DC (AutoIT only)
      Change Edge to Google Chrome as Default Browser (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool)
      Windows Updates (Currently working on it - AutoIT only)
      Install Office 
      Activate Office (Tested on 2010 & Working - CMD Script)
      Pin to taskbar Excel, Outlook, Word, Chrome (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool)
      GUI currently featuring the following options 
      - TreeView to check case of desired tasks
      - RichEdit to display ConsoleWrite with _NowTime()
                 *** To Do ***
       - Read informations needed for tasks like: OEM, ComputerName, NAS user/password etc... from a file
       - ListView for Windows Updates
       - Probably more
       
      ***  Reply here if this project interest you,This will greatly help me to see if anyone want this project to become real  ***

      Dan - thanks for all that you do - this stuff is great. 
      Hoping you can assist with an issue we are having now that we have moved to Windows 10/Server 2016. The Chrome interactions were working flawlessly until moving over. Now my code fails when attempting to create the session. As you can see, our Chrome install is not in a standard location but I have validated the path to the binary. I have attached some detail below including system info, console output and the chrome log detail. I have tried several recommendations that have seen in various forums but none have made a difference
      Any assistance you can give would be greatly appreciated. 
      Thanks in advance,

      Hello!!!  
      In the past I had problems adding an application as a default for an extension in Windows 10. (It was easy in windows 7 using Registry) But since Windows 8 It requires to do some steps more. I wrote a tool (in other programming language) months ago for handling it. But now I just want to share an AutoIt version.
       
      Check on GitHub.

      Hello everyone.
      I always try to work with old Windows 10 versions as much as possible because I know mane compatibility issues with Windows 10 upgrading. 
      But I couldn't do anything else (I got drivers problem), and nothing couldn't help me besides upgrading, so I upgraded from 1807 to 1903.
      And...get another problem 😃
      I use AutoitX library in external project like this.
      ObjectAutoIt=New COMObject("AutoItX3.Control");
      ObjectAutoIt.AutoItSetOption("WinTextMatchMode",2);
              While ObjectAutoit.WinExists("",WindowHeader) Cycle 
                  ObjectAutoIt.WinClose("",WindowHeader);
              EndCycle;
      After upgrade I get that this line code 
      While ObjectAutoit.WinExists("",WindowHeader)
      become extremely low - ~ 20 seconds even if 10 windows open. But before upgrade it takes 0.5 s for a max.
      And every time that this code line passes through  - it takes ~20s, (20.115, for example), not less, not more. Something pauses it to work.
      How can I diagnose, what is that?
      I tried reinstall whole AutoIt, but no results.
      Thanks to all.
