machine stuck in a loop

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I created an installation srcipt to auotmate the install of an application. Now the machine is stuck in a loop where it just keeps launching the executable. I've tried to stop this by using task manager but it will not respond. I have powered off the machine but when it reboots the process picks up where it left off. IS there anything I can do to stop this?

Save boot and then remove what needs to be removed ?

I have found that if you try to have a script execute something that the user does not have enough rights to do, it will loop. For example, I wrote a script that rebooted a computer using the shutdown command, but it would constantly loop the app when logged on as a restricted user. I believe it loops because you do not have any error handling, no end statement or another thing I just forgot the name of.
