Hi folks,

I'm hoping someone can help me out here.

Background:
I have the need to run a program with admin credentials (#RequireAdmin), and then get the SID of the locally logged in account. Not the admin account.

If you look at the attached script, Line 16 uses the @UserName variable and returns the SID for the admin account I used to launch the app.
I want to use line 17 which passes the result of the _GetUsername function which is a username using  ($UserName) to the WMIService.

I'm getting " The requested action with this object has failed.:" error message.

Any suggestions would be appreciated! :D

I'm no expert with "winmgmts", but i can say the reason why the object fails, is the method "Get" with your properties is throwing an exception. And AutoIt does not work well with object exceptions, without catching object events.

I would think the code below MIGHT be a solution.

MsgBox(0, "", _Security__SidToStringSid(_Security__GetAccountSid($UserName)))

otherwise something like this:

$objAccount = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT SID FROM Win32_UserAccount WHERE Name='"&@UserName&"'"); i use @UserName, as the return from "_GetUsername()" contains string terminating char(s) and makes the query fail.
For $row in $objAccount
    ConsoleWrite($row.Name&@CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite($row.SID&@CRLF)
Next

 

Anyway, i hope some of this will be helpful.

Here is a way to get the list of logged on users (from the registry)  :

#RequireAdmin


#include <Security.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Local $aLoggedOnUsers = _GetLoggedOnUsers()
_ArrayDisplay($aLoggedOnUsers)

Func _GetLoggedOnUsers()
    Local $sSubkey, $i = 0, $aUserInfo, $aResult[1][2], $iCount
    While 1
        $i += 1
        $sSubkey = RegEnumKey("HKEY_USERS", $i)
        If @error Then ExitLoop

        If StringRegExp($sSubkey, "^S-1-5-21-(\d+-){3}\d+$") Then
            $iCount += 1
            $aUserInfo = _Security__LookupAccountSid ($sSubkey )

            Redim $aResult[$iCount + 1][2]
            $aResult[$iCount][0] = $aUserInfo[1] & "\" & $aUserInfo[0]
            $aResult[$iCount][1] = $sSubkey
        EndIf
    WEnd
    $aResult[0][0] = $iCount
    Return $aResult
EndFunc

Thank you so much genius257! This works like a charm but it take a considerably longer time to generate the SID. Not sure why but it works :)

Oh this is a much quicker way to obtain the SID. Thanks so much jguinch!

Happy to help :)

Yeah, i imagine a better, faster way exists, but i don't know enough about it to be able to help, I'm afraid :)

      Hello everyone,
      I started this project alone in May 2020 as project in my spare time at work, I'm working for a IT company that started opening their services to residential customers few months ago and now my position in the company kind of drifted in the doom and gloom world of repetitive tasks like: Reinstallation + Configuration 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 (BATCH / POWERSHELL / VB) ? 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 helping/collaborating in this project? A: I will personally take the responsibility 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 will 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) (Work but missing configuration in GUI - AutoIt only)
      Download & Install up to 600+ softwares (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool + 50/50 Powershell/AutoIt)
       Auto prediction of Apps name of text typed inside input (Tested & Working - AutoIt Only)
      Change OEM Informations (Tested & Working -  AutoIt)
      Disable hibernation (Tested & Working - AutoIt only)
      Change Computer Name (Work but require testing - AutoIt only) 
      Show Computer Information and Smart status on GUI (Tested & Working - AutoIt Only)
      Change .pdf / .pdfxml from Edge to Adobe Reader DC (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool)
      Change Edge to Google Chrome as Default Browser (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool)
      Windows Updater (Seems to work but require further testing - AutoIt only)
      Install Office 365 / 2013 + Activation (To Do)
      Add L2TP VPN Configuration for Windows Built-in VPN (To Do)
      Save / Load tasks configuration profile in (.ini file) to avoid repeating same configuration twice (In progress - AutoIt Only)
      (EXPERIMENTAL) Install Apps from Microsoft Store with UIAutomation UDF made by @junkew(Work if you know what your doing)
         P.S: Installing Apps from Microsoft Store will require usage of  UIA spy tool made by @LarsJ which you can download & learn how to use it on UIA Spy Tool thread.
      ***  If this project interest you, Reply here This will greatly help me to see if you'd like this project to become real  ***

      I have a string containing the full path of an executable and an array of executables without their paths. I am trying to compare the string to the list in the array and if a match is found, remove it from the array. The entry get removed from the array successfully, and after checking its return result, uses it to update the ubound if it succeeded, but it doesn't want to update to the new value. Any ideas what I am doing wrong? It acts like it is read-only.
      #include <Array.au3> #include <File.au3> Local $sApp_Exe = "F:\App\Nextcloud\nextcloud.exe" Local $aWaitForEXEX = [3, "Nextcloud.exe", "nextcloudcmd.exe", "QtWebEngineProcess.exe"] For $h = 1 To $aWaitForEXEX[0] If StringInStr($sApp_Exe, $aWaitForEXEX[$h]) <> 0 Then $iRet = _ArrayDelete($aWaitForEXEX, $h) If $iRet <> -1 Then $aWaitForEXEX[0] = $iRet ;this line doesn't work. $aWaitForEXEX[0] doesn't update and shortly gives Error: Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.: _ArrayDisplay($aWaitForEXEX) EndIf Next

      Hi All,
      I'm not sure if its possible that I'm trying to achieve, I've looked into https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/docs/SciTE4AutoIt3/AutoIt3Wrapper.html and such resources for help, but I cant really find the answer to my question.
      So upon compiling the script in SciTE, the exe file is given a Description under file Properties>Details. I understand, that  one can enter info manually there and it can even implement the version automatically with each compilation.
       
      What I'm trying to achieve is to somehow include the "@ScriptName" in the Details>File Description Field. But as I see no variable can be taken after "#" in this case.
       
      Do You think its achievable? (Win 10)
       
      Much obliged for taking time on reading this.
       
      Kind Regards,
      Brave

      Hey everyone,
      Was wondering how I would be able to implement this on a local computer instead of using connectserver? 
      Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Hi,
      I have a specific situation:
      Is it possible to run autoit script/.exe as a task which in turn is automating a desktop user interactive application on windows 10 where user will not be logged in - at best I can get user locked? 
      If so how will this work or is there any tool available to do this?
      I am trying z-cron task scheduler but it runs only some part also I tried windows 10 task schedule with option to allow task to run which is user interactive type but that too does not work.
      Looking forward to hear from you to help me out of this situation.
      Thanks,
