using secedit in a script

5 posts in this topic

I need to run the following command as an administrator. I know how to do the runasset part but what I don't know is how to include the command using @comspec.

secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\repair\secsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb /quiet /areas USER_RIGHTS

That should be all one command. It is supposed to reset the security settings to ms defaults

$rc = runwait(@comspec & " / c secedit.exe /configure /cfg " & @WindowsDir & "\repair\secsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb /quiet /areas USER_RIGHTS")

This still gives error message. Error: Unable to execute the external program. the system cannot find the file specified.

Looks like i have a typo, there is a space between "/ c" ... try this version:

$rc = runwait(@comspec & " /c secedit.exe  /configure /cfg " & @WindowsDir & "\repair\secsetup.inf /db secsetup.sdb /quiet /areas USER_RIGHTS")

When it doesn't work you can check the following:

- is the secedit.exe in you standard seach path.. iow... can you runn it from the cmd prompt?

- run the above command with /k in stead of /c for testing. it will leave the cmd window open.
