Hello,

You guys helped me years ago to address logging in with a different account than the user.  I have sense modified it over the years due to laptops syncing with AD which is why you will see 3 different passwords.  So, this script snippet has worked for me in many things i have written but I am all the sudden having an issue getting it to work.  I have verified that the password i am using for the local user account is $pass.  Verified by doing a run as different user on Chrome and cut and pasted the password out of the script just to make sure i was not fat fingering something.  

I get a fail back from RunAs every time.   

Any chance you guys see something i am doing wrong?

 

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPIFiles.au3>
;#RequireAdmin

If $CmdLine[0] > 0 Then
    If $CmdLine[1] = "/Install" Then RunUpdate()
    Exit
EndIf

;;Will check users account to determine if admin, if not will Run with admin rights --------------------------------------------------------------
;;Varables Start
Local $user = ".\user"
Local $pass = "password1"
Local $pass2 = "password2"
Local $pass3 = "password3"
Local $filetorun = @ScriptFullPath & " /Install"
;;Varables End


If IsAdmin () = 0 Then
    If RunAs ( $user, @CompterName, $pass, $RUN_LOGON_NOPROFILE,$filetorun) = 0 Then
        ;If RunAs ( $user, @ComputerName, $pass2, 0,$filetorun) = 0 Then
            ;If RunAs ( $user, @ComputerName, $pass3, 0,$filetorun) = 0 Then
                ;MsgBox (0,"Installation Error", "This installation was interrupted due to an incorrect Admin Password")
                ;Exit
            ;EndIf
        ;EndIf
    EndIf
    Exit
Else
    Run ($filetorun)
EndIf


Func RunUpdate()
MsgBox(0,"worked","worked")
EndFunc

It always amazes me how one little thing can cause so much havoc

Why do you have the user name set to ".\user"?  It should just be "user".  You are already specifying the domain as @ComputerName, so the ".\" is not needed.  Also, RunAs requires the user name only for the first argument, not "domain\username".  Also, RunAs does not request the Admin Token when it runs a command, so the account run as does not have full admin rights.  There are workarounds for this, here is one.

      I am new to AutoIT although MANY years ago I used a similar program called WinBatch to automate morning routines.
      I am having some issues running code from the command line.
      If I use this line in my script
      Run ('cmd.exe /K "C:\start microsoft-edge:https://app.flowalgo.com/users/login"') It opens the cmd screen but the directory is set to the directory where the script that is running is located.
      C:\Autostart-Workstation\AMStart, and I need it to run from the C prompt
      I can get it to open at the C prompt with
      Run ('cmd.exe /K "cd\"') Is there a way to force the code to run from the root prompt ("C:\")?
      or how do I send the code to the cmd screen once I've changed to the root drive

      Greetings,
      I've found and used @TheDcoder's ProcessEX UDF, and have found it and invaluable tool in my scripting arsenal. Recently, I found myself needing to create a script which then attempts to run another program as a different user. I was able to heavily borrow from the _Process_RunCommand function to create _Process_RunAsCommand:
      ; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Name ..........: _Process_RunAsCommand ; Description ...: Runs a command or an executable under a different user security privilege. ; Syntax ........: _Process_RunAsCommand($iMode, $sUserName, $sUserPass, $sUserDomain, $sExecutable [, $sWorkingDir = @TempDir [, $iRunOptFlag = $STDERR_MERGED]]) ; Parameters ....: $iMode - Mode in which this function should operate, See Remarks. ; $sUserName - User name under which you would like to run the command/executable. ; $sUserPass - Password for $sUserName. ; $sUserDomain - Domain name to which the $sUserName belongs. ; $sExecutable - The command to run/execute (along with any arguments). ; $sWorkingDir - [optional] The working directroy for the command. Default is @TempDir. $sUserName must have ; privileges to create/modify files on this directory. ; $iRunOptFlag - [optional] The Opt flag for the Run function. Default is $STDERR_MERGED. ; Return values .: Success: Mode $PROCESS_RUN : Will return the process handle & @extended will contain the PID of the command ; Mode $PROCESS_RUNWAIT : Will return the output & @extended will contain the exit code for the function ; Failure: Will return False & @error will contain: ; 1 - If the $iMode flag is invalid ; 2 - If the command is invalid ; Author ........: J. Sanchez, heavily borrowing from code by TheDcoder ; Modified ......: N/A ; Remarks .......: 1. The ONLY valid modes are: $PROCESS_RUN & $PROCESS_RUNWAIT ; $PROCESS_RUN : Will act similarly to Run function, See Return values ; $PROCESS_RUNWAIT : Will act similarly to RunWait function, See Return values ; If you use $PROCESS_RUN then use _Process_GetExitCode to get the exit code & use StdoutRead to get the output of the command ; 2. Use $PROCESS_COMMAND to run commands like this: $PROCESS_COMMAND & "ping 127.0.0.1" ; 3. Add $PROCESS_DEBUG to $iMode to automagically debug the command, $PROCESS_RUN is equivalent to $PROCESS_RUNWAIT in this case ; Related .......: RunAs, RunWait ; Link ..........: http://bit.ly/ProcessUdfForAutoIt ; Example .......: Yes, see example.au3 ; ===============================================================================================================================; Functions Func _Process_RunAsCommand($iMode, $sUserName, $sUserPass, $sUserDomain, $sExecutable, $sWorkingDir = @TempDir, $iRunOptFlag = $STDERR_MERGED) Local $iExitCode = 0 ; Declare the exit code variable before hand Local $sOutput = "" ; Declare the output variable before hand Local $bDebug = False ; Declare the debug variable before hand If BitAND($iMode, $PROCESS_DEBUG) Then $bDebug = True If BitAND($iMode, $PROCESS_RUN) Then $iMode = $PROCESS_RUN ElseIf BitAND($iMode, $PROCESS_RUNWAIT) Then $iMode = $PROCESS_RUNWAIT Else Return SetError(1, 0, False) EndIf ; If Not $iMode = $PROCESS_RUN Or Not $iMode = $PROCESS_RUNWAIT Then Return SetError(1, 0, False) ; If the mode is invalid... ;Local $iPID = Run($sExecutable, $sWorkingDir, @SW_HIDE, $iRunOptFlag) ; Run!!! :P Local $iPID = RunAs($sUserName,$sUserDomain,$sUserPass,BitAND(0,4),$PROCESS_COMMAND & " " & $sExecutable,$sWorkingDir,@SW_HIDE,$iRunOptFlag) If @error Then Return SetError(2, @error, False) ; If the command is invalid... Local $hProcessHandle = _Process_GetHandle($iPID) ; Get the handle of the process If $iMode = $PROCESS_RUN Then If Not $bDebug Then Return SetExtended($iPID, $hProcessHandle) ; If the function is in Run mode then return the PID & Process Handle $sOutput = _Process_DebugRunCommand($hProcessHandle, $iPID) ; Debug the process $iExitCode = _Process_GetExitCode($hProcessHandle) ; Note the exit code Return SetExtended($iExitCode, $sOutput) ; Return the output & exit code EndIf If Not $bDebug Then While ProcessExists($iPID) $sOutput &= StdoutRead($iPID) ; Capture the output Sleep(250) ; Don't kill the CPU WEnd $sOutput &= StdoutRead($iPID) ; Capture any remaining output $iExitCode = _Process_GetExitCode($hProcessHandle) ; Note the exit code Return SetExtended($iExitCode, $sOutput) ; Return the exit code & the output :D EndIf $sOutput = _Process_DebugRunCommand($hProcessHandle, $iPID) ; Debug the process $iExitCode = _Process_GetExitCode($hProcessHandle) ; Note the exit code Return SetExtended($iExitCode, $sOutput) ; Return the output & exit code EndFunc The issue that I currently have is that, regardless of what the errorlevel returned by the program being executed, the errorlevel returned by the _Process_RunAsCommand is 259, which, according to this page it means that there's no more data (I'm guessing from the STDIO and STDERR?)
      Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi AutoIters!
       
      Im trying to launch a .exe file that is nested within the program files (x86) folder structure. i have already used the standard RunAs Syntax and found that it fails to launch the application. I have switched to Run and that seems to work. My issue is I have to use RunAs as the applicaton would need to run under a completely different account. The Current logged in user is a Local User on the machine, however, the application must be run as a domain user. The Machine is domain connected.
       
       have tried the following:
      RunAs("username","logonpassword", $RUN_LOGON_PROFILE, "D:\Program Files (x86)\Vendor\Application Name\Exe Location\Executable.exe") The above fails to launch, there are no errors or syntax issues, it just does nothing when the variables are replaced for the correct values.
      I did the same using the Run command
      Run("D:\Program Files (x86)\Vendor\Application Name\Exe Location\Executable.exe") That seems to work fine, but runs in local user context. Any thoughts? Could it be a local Machine rights issue? Or have i missed something glaring in my script

      Hey I'm writing on a script which places a link in the context menu so you can choose several mp3 files and rename them using id3 tag udf and year / time stuff variables.
      My problem: I'm renaming the files through "FileMove", But HOW can I get the current directory of the chosen files only? I can't use stringsplit cz there are more than 1 delimiter "\". and I can't trim the string because the stringlength changes every time. How can I get ONLY the directory where the files from $cmdline chosen are?

      HI GUYS,
      I'm trying to run this script with an advanced domain user, but when compiling the cmd it returns access denied, as if it did not recognize the user of AD.
       
      RunAsWait("administrator", "CONTOSO", "Services.1", 2, "C:\Users\albert.frizz\Desktop\test.bat")
       
      can you help me please?
