Yet another ShellExecuteWait Question

Recommended Posts

Hello and Good Day to All!

I am trying to install .NET 3.5 on Windows 10 x64bit via autoit (via ShellExecuteWait + PowerShell).

If I run this line, it will runs without issues:

ShellExecuteWait('PowerShell.exe', '-executionpolicy Bypass -File "' & @ScriptDir & '\OJP83BU523.ps1' & '"')

"OJP83BU523.ps1" contains: DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFX3 /All /Source:D:\Sources\sxs /LimitAccess

However, since I won't know in advance the drive letter of the "sources" folder, I created a script to generate a PowerShell Script to give a correct path for it.

With the modified script below, PowerShell only blinks and nothing happens

ShellExecuteWait('PowerShell.exe', '-executionpolicy Bypass -File "' & @ScriptDir & '\' & $filename & '"')

or

ShellExecuteWait('PowerShell.exe', '-executionpolicy Bypass -File "' & $filename & '"')

 

I wish I know the difference with "$filename" and "\OJP83BU523.ps1" usage, as for me, it should be the same.

Attached is my entire autoit script.

any help is appreciated!, many thanks in advance!

You left the handle to the file open without closing it. The easiest solution would be to ditch the FileOpen line.

FileOpen returns a handle to a file. FileWrite will put the data in the file, but it won't be able to be read until the file handle is closed with FileClose. Instead, you can directly open, write, and close the file all with FileWrite.


All my code provided is Public Domain... but it may not work. ;) Use it, change it, break it, whatever you want.

Can you try

Local $hFilePath = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\" & $filename, 2)
    FileWrite($hFilePath, 'DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFX3 /All /Source:' & $dDrive & 'Sources\sxs /LimitAccess')
    FileClose($hFilePath)

Or something like

RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFX3 /All /Source:' & $dDrive & 'Sources\sxs /LimitAccess')

Or PowerShell -Command from cmd.

@seadoggie01

Thank you for pointing out my issues with FileOpen/FileWrite..., it works now.

@Subz

Thank you for the heads-up on _TempFile

Also, I have settled with a long one liner you posted

RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFX3 /All /Source:' & StringLeft(@ScriptDir, 3) & 'Sources\sxs /LimitAccess')

      I need to save the execution result as a text file. Is there any solution?
      ShellExecute ( "filename" [, "parameters" [, "workingdir" [, "verb" [, showflag]]]] )    if  parameters have " > " can't Execute correctly, 
      Example 1:
      ShellExecute("diskspd.exe", "-b128K  -c64M f:\estfile.dat > test123.txt", "", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)  ;Error
      ShellExecute("diskspd.exe", "-b128K  -c64M f:\estfile.dat", "", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)                         ;OK
      Example 2:
      ShellExecute("help", "dir > helpdir.txt", "", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)  ;Error
      ShellExecute("help", "dir", "", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)                         ;OK

      For my next project I would like to send files with "alternate data streams" by email in ZIP format.
      I can not use any external program like 7-Zip or WinRAR. (They would fit😥)
      Who knows how to create a ZIP file with "alternate data streams" included with the Powershell command "Compress-Archive"? 
      Here a test script:  (save as "ADSTester.cmd")
      @rem Try to create a zip file with alternate data streams (ADS) included @rem Housekeeping @cls @del ADSTester.zip >nul: @RD /S /Q Extracted >nul: @del ADSTester.txt >nul: @rem End of Housekeeping echo This is the ADSTester.txt file >ADSTester.txt echo This is the ADSTester.txt:Part1 file >ADSTester.txt:Part1 echo This is the ADSTester.txt:Part2 file >ADSTester.txt:Part2 dir /r ADSTester.txt @rem See the 3 files @rem **************************************************************** @rem **************************************************************** @rem Please alter the next lines to include the alternate data streams. powershell Compress-Archive -Path .\ADSTester.txt -Update -DestinationPath ADSTester.zip powershell Expand-Archive -Path ADSTester.zip -DestinationPath .\Extracted\ dir /r Extracted\ADSTester.txt @rem Only one file left :-( pause

      Which Powershell command in the PowerCLI module for VMware ESX used to interact with UI apps?
       
      When I launch any exe/any exeutable using powercli on guest VM using powercli command.
      Invoke-VMScript, I am able to run them in the background but not in the foreground.
       
      i.e., UI apps are not launching but showing the background as running in the task manager.
       
      We need our UI Automation scripts to execute in the VM, but it is not working.
       
      We are able to do in virtualbox and hyper-v but not in vmware esx using powercli.
       
      Please suggest.

      There are a number of posts on the forum regarding use of Selenium in AutoIt. I recently had a go at using the PowerShell Selenium module, and was amazed at how easy it is. Thought I would post an example here; if anyone is interested this could probably be incorporated into AutoIt code pretty easily. 
      Pre-Req - The true star of this script is the ChroPath extension, available for Edge, Chrome and FireFox. With it installed, you just click on the element, select Inspect, and then ChroPath generates the XPath to the element for you. Here is an example based on a simple form I created on one of my sites.
      $myForm = Start-SeChrome -StartURL "http://logancomputerser.com/Appointment.html" -Maximized $firstName = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_First']" $lastName = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_Last']" $address = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_Street1']" $city = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_City']" $zip = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_Zip']" $state = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//select[@id='formElement_State']" $phoneDay = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_DaytimePhone']" $phoneNight = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_EveningPhone']" $email = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_liamE']" $user = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_48564']" $pw = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='formElement_f403c']" $submit = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='wstForm_Contact_Submit']" $reset = Find-SeElement -Driver $myForm -Timeout 30 -XPath "//input[@id='wstForm_Contact_Reset']" Send-SeKeys -Element $firstName -Keys "Joe" Send-SeKeys -Element $lastName -Keys "Blow" Send-SeKeys -Element $address -Keys "111 S. Main St." Send-SeKeys -Element $city -Keys "AnyCity" Send-SeKeys -Element $zip -Keys "90210" Send-SeKeys -Element $state -Keys "CA" Send-SeKeys -Element $phoneDay -Keys "555.867.5309" Send-SeKeys -Element $phoneNight -Keys "555.888.1212" Send-SeKeys -Element $email -Keys "1Adam12@gmail.com" Send-SeKeys -Element $user -Keys "JBlow" Send-SeKeys -Element $pw -Keys "MyPassword" Start-Sleep 1 Invoke-SeClick -Element $submit Stop-SeDriver -Driver $myForm  
      As mentioned, this is just another way to skin the cat, but I found it a pretty fast way to initiate some easy testing in Selenium, and have used it a couple of times in projects now, both straight through PowerShell and wrapped in AutoIt.
