Project Windows-10 Configurator [Looking for Collaboration]


Recommended Posts

2021.07.15 News: Project is NOT dead! I am still very devoted into accomplishing this project, I am spending my every bit of energy that is left at end of the day (when there is any) for this project and it really does challenge my knowledge in AutoIt language but I won't give up :) 

Hi,

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 in 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.

Sorry if it's quite challenging to understand me sometimes, there is 2 possible reasons to this:

#1. I am a native French speaker and learned English mainly from chatting with others players in online games.

#2. I have a developmental disorder mainly affecting my social abilities, way of thinking, understanding stuffs and explaining myself in which it can seem ironic of seeing me here, but I been working on getting better every days for an dozens of years now ^_^

Do not like my dirty code? It's fine, but in my opinion, the dirty codes are unique and I believe it's a good glimpse of how the mind of the person who wrote it thinks, and that, that's what I call a psychological deduction step by step in all its splendor.

Hi WilliamasKumeliukas,

I am interessed in Looking for Collaboration Windows 10 Configurator.
I love Silent apps, or a Unattended Windows.
I am not a programmer, I often test software.
Make apps silent, make apps portable too.
And test everything in a clean windows 10 in VMWare.

I hope i can help with something.

 

Greatz

      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

      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,

      So I have no example code currently because I'm not sure where to even start.
      We're using the parental controls on the computer and the kids each have their own user profiles with limited time. The problem we're encountering is when their time runs out, or if they just hit Win+L and leave the computer, their games are still running in the background. I was hoping to write up a quick AutoIt script and throw it in a recurring scheduled task to just sign off any of the kid's profiles that's not currently active. I found some suggestions to use "query session" and then "logoff [user]" in the command line (which it seems I could easily automate with AutoIt) but that's only available on Win Pro and this system is running Home (and I even tried copying the query.exe from a Pro system but it errors out). Is there some AutoIt equivalent to the query and logoff functions or am I stuck?
      Edit: I'm adding some clarification to exactly what I'm hoping to get out of this script.
      I'd like to setup a scheduled task that runs outside of the current user (perhaps under the SYSTEM account?) in case NO user is currently active, that will detect which users are currently signed in. If users from a predefined list are not currently active, sign them off entirely.
      So let me give two examples:
      Example #1:
      - I am logged in, but not active (I left my browser open and locked the computer) - Nephew A is logged in, but not active (his time ran out while his game was running and the computer auto-locked) - Nephew B is logged in, and currently playing a game When script runs, ignore my profile (leave it signed in), log out Nephew A (closing his game), and ignore Nephew B because he's actively using the computer. Example #2:
      - I am logged in - Nephew A is logged in - Nephew B is logged in - No users are currently active (Windows is sitting on the choose user / sign in screen) When script runs, ignore my profile, log out Nephew A and Nephew B.  
      I would perceive pseudo code, going as such:
      $aChildUsers = [ 'NephewA', 'NephewB' ] $aUserList = GetSignedInUsers() For $i = 0 to UBound($aUserList)-1 If Not UserIsActive($aUserList[$i]) Then For $j = 0 to UBound($aChildUsers)-1 If $aUserList[$i] = $aChildUsers[$j] Then LogOffUser($aUserList[$i]) Next EndIf Next Obviously, GetSignedInUsers(), UserIsActive(), LogOffUser() are not real functions. What I'm searching for is something of their equivalent.
      Thanks for your time!
