Two questions about getting this PS code to run in Autoit...


Recommended Posts

Hey all! I'm going a bit crazy with this, so maybe you guys can help. (I'm also extreamly tired, but I'm pretty sure that's not effecting the fact that this doesn't work.)

Right so, I'm trying to run this PS code that disables Windows Defender.

Set-MpPreference -DisableRealtimeMonitoring $true


But that code needs to be run as administrator.

The other problem is, the code that I tried didn't work at all. And I have no idea why.

 
Run("C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe Start-Sleep -Seconds 20 -Milliseconds 300" )

 

So, could someone help me figure out why that code doesn't work, so that I can get the other code to work?
Basically I'm trying to do this, but I need it to be ran as Admin.
 

Run("C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe Set-MpPreference -DisableRealtimeMonitoring $true" )



Thanks for yalls time.

For the first snippet, it is no wonder it is not working, that is incorrect syntax for the Start-Sleep command. I would suggest reviewing the help on that.

Ah, thanks for letting me know that. I'm so new to powershell, that I thought I had written that correctly. I'm learning. :)
Okay, I think one of the reasons this code isn't working is because I'm not running powershell as admin. How do I do that?

I would suggest Googling "powershell script require run as admin", the syntax is very close to AutoIt's....
