More AutoIt, less Psexec

3 posts in this topic

I have written a small script that will (among other things) launch IE as local system (using Psexec) on remote machines. This keeps me from having to use Runas on the end users device or type in the path to the exe using cmd line Psexec.

I would like to move away from relying on Psexec to do these things. Is there some way I can move to straight AutoIt code for this type of thing?

GUISetState()
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
            ;
        Case $msg = $Button_3
            $ReadInput = GUICtrlRead($Input_1)
            RunWait("psexec -s -i \\" & $ReadInput & ' "c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe"')
            ;
        Case $msg = $Button_4
            $ReadInput = GUICtrlRead($Input_1)
            Run("psexec -s -i \\" & $ReadInput & " c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe")
            ;
        Case $msg = $Button_5
            $ReadInput = GUICtrlRead($Input_1)
            Run("psexec -s -i \\" & $ReadInput & " c:\windows\regedit.exe")
            ;
        Case $msg = $Button_6
            $ReadInput = GUICtrlRead($Input_1)
            Run("psexec -s -i \\" & $ReadInput & " c:\windows\servicepackfiles\i386\msconfig.exe")

For IE you can use ObjCreate ( "classname" [, "servername" [,"username", ["password"]]] )

E.g. $oIE = ("InternetExplorer.Application", "remote-server", "username", "password")

You can then even further control the $oIE instance using the IE Management UDF.

Thanks for the reply. I will look into that.
