Run Powershell command line from AutoIt

Recommended Posts

Jibberish

Hi all,

I need to read a log file into an array, but the log file is encoded as $FO_UTF16_BE_NOBOM (2048) = Use Unicode UTF16 Big Endian (without BOM) per FileGetEncoding (it returns 2048).

I have searched how to convert these log files to UTF-8 and finally found a Powershell command. Since then I have been racking my brain trying to get the function to work. The command itself works from a Powerscript prompt:

C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -Command Get-Content C:\Logs\Myplayer_10-10-17-02-31.log | Set-Content -Encoding utf8 C:\Logs\Myplayer1.log

This is my sandbox;

#include <array.au3>
#include <File.au3>

Local $aArrayLogFile
Local $sLogDir = "C:\Logs\"
Local $sLogFile = "Myplayer_10-10-17-02-31.log"
Local $sConvertedLog = "ConvertedLog.log"
Local $sLogDirFile = $sLogDir&$sLogFile

RunWait("C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -Command Get-Content "&$sLogDirFile&" | Set-Content -Encoding utf8 "&$sConvertedLog,$sLogDir)

_FileReadToArray($sLogDirFile, $aArrayLogFile)
_ArrayDisplay($aArrayLogFile)

Also tried

RunWait("C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -Command Get-Content "&$sLogDirFile&" | Set-Content -Encoding utf8 "&$sConvertedLog,$sLogDir)

and

ShellExecuteWait("C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe"," -Command Get-Content "&$sLogDirFile&" | Set-Content -Encoding utf8 "&$sConvertedLog,$sLogDir)

Tried without -Command and a bunch of other parameters that were sprinkled throughout the internet from people trying to get this to work.

Thanks

This one works for me :

RunWait("C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -Command Get-Content 'c:\SessionChange_20.06.2016 _ 12.53.11.log' | Set-Content -Encoding utf8 'c:\SessionChange_20.06.2016 _ 12.53.11222.log'")

I have done it with hard coded names for simplicity - using variables also works.

      THANKS TO RASIM, MARTIN, AND BOOMINGRANNY FOR TEACHING ME HOW TO DO THIS. 
      SCRIPT ONE WORKS ON MY PLATFORM.  IT CREATED THE ATTACHMENTS.
      IMPROVEMENTS ARE WELCOMED. 
      SEE BOLD TEXT BELOW.
      PURPOSE:
      WRITE AN AUTOIT3 SCRIPT THAT WHEN RUN IN A WINDOWS SCHEDULED TASK WILL PRODUCE SCREENSHOTS OF THE DESKTOP, START MENU, QUICK ACCESS MENU, AND DEVICE MANAGER WITHOUT INTERACTION.  IF MULTIPLE SHOTS ARE REQUIRED THE SHOTS CAN BE COMBINED STACKED OR SIDE-BY-SIDE.  SCRIPTS ARE WRITTEN TO RUN ON WINDOWS 10.0.17134.286 PRO 64-BIT IN AN ACCOUNT WITH ADMIN PRIVILEGES IN A WINDOW WITH ADMIN PRIVILEGES AND AUTOIT3 v3.3.14.5
      PROCEDURE:
      WHAT ARE THE COORDINATES OF THE SCREENSHOTS?
      WHERE DO YOU WANT TO CREATE THE SHOTS?
      WHAT DO YOU WANT TO CALL THE SHOTS?
      TAKE THE SHOTS.
      PROCESS THE SHOTS:
      WHERE ARE THEY? WHAT ARE THEY CALLED? WHERE DO YOU WANT THEM TO GO? WHAT DO YOU WANT TO CALL THEM? DO YOU WANT THEM STACKED, SIDE-BY-SIDE, OR NEITHER? TWEAK TO ELIMINATE ERRORS.
      RESULTS: SCRIPT TWO I'VE INCORPORATED THE SUGGESTION OF @BOOMINGRANNY AND MADE A SECOND SCRIPT.  MY WAY OF FINDING THE SHOT COORDINATES OF THE DEVICE MANAGER DID NOT WORK WHEN STARTING THE DEVICE MANAGER THIS WAY . #include <Coordinates.au3> finds incorrect coordinates.  They are shifted down ~50px.  Does not work on menus exposed by right clicking or the start menu. WORK NEEDS TO BE DONE TO ELIMINATE THE BLACK BAR WHEN THE SHOTS ARE NOT THE SAME HEIGHT and ARE BEING DISPLAYED SIDE-BY-SIDE. 
      SEE    If $Position = "right"
      CONCLUSION:
      UNFINISHED AS OF THIS TIME.
      MAKE ROBUST.  A ROBUST SCRIPT FAILS LESS THAN 1% OF THE TIME AND RUNS ON WINDOWS 10 64-BIT THROUGH WINDOWS XP 32-BIT SP0 IN AN ACCOUNT WITH STANDARD/USER/LIMITED PRIVILEGES IN A WINDOW WITH STANDARD/USER/LIMITED PRIVILEGES.   IT WOULD BE NICE TO MAKE THE SCRIPT FASTER AND LIGHTER.

      I am Very new to Autoit and I'm trying to figure out how to input text in an administrator Level Command prompt on windows 10. this is what I currently have
      Send ("#r") WinWaitActive("Run") Send("runas /user:Administrator cmd") Send("{Enter}") WinWait("C:\WINDOWS\system32\runas.exe") ControlClick("", "", "[CLASS:ConsoleWindowClass]") Send("test-Password") Send("{Enter}") The issue I am having is I can not send the "test-password" to the command prompt.  I cried adding the ControlClick command to place the cursor in he CMD box, but its still not working. What am I doing wrong?

      autoit3 under Win7 (x64)
      Here's a very simple script that reports the number
      of parameters it's called with:
      cmd_line_nparm.au3
      $nparm = $CmdLine[0] ; number of parameters
      MsgBox(0,"","nparm: " & $nparm)
      If I start a dos session and cd to the folder where
      this file is stored and run
      cmd_line_nparm.au3 abc def
      the response is nparm: 0 ; but if I provide the full
      path to the autoit exe file    I get the correct answer (2).
      Can anyone tell me what I need to do to avoid having to
      provide the full path? (Hopefully without needing to
      re-install autoit3)
      Thanks!

      Not sure if this is possible or if someone has already tackled this. Is it possible to embed PowerShell into a GUI? Autoit is great for quick function but sometime I need to run a command thru PowerShell. It be great to have PowerShell console embedded into the gui.

      After much searching I finally found a method to get eMails from an Exchange eMail account inbox.  I was hoping for AutoIT or vbscript but I couldn't find any that would read the inbox messages without using Outlook.
      I needed this because I'm testing a web-form that generates an eMail sent to a shared mailbox "not what my current outlook is configured for".  so, I needed to connect to a different account, then get the inbox messages, and see if the auto-generated eMail message body contains what I submitted in the form.
       
      I found a PowerShell script that was close and modified it to do just what I want, but I'd still like it to run in AutoIT but I'm not sure how to use the Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.dll
      Anybody have some ideas?
