RunAsSet and @SW_HIDE

Recommended Posts

Hey,

When running the following script, notepad is hidden:

RunWait("notepad.exe","",@SW_HIDE)

But if I use the same line with RunAsSet, notepad is visible:

RunAsSet("administrator", "domain", "password", 0)
RunWait("notepad.exe","",@SW_HIDE)
RunAsSet()

Is there a way of hiding notepad (or any other programs) when running as?

Rerun your own script with specific parameters and in the beginning of your script check if the specific parameters were passed and then run notepad with @SW_HIDE.

Here is a way of getting around it, not very pretty but it works.

Split the script in 2, use the first to call the second as Admin

Script1

RunAsSet("administrator", "domain", "password", 0)
Run("script2.exe","",@SW_HIDE)
RunAsSet()

Script2

RunWait("notepad.exe","",@SW_HIDE)

Yes it is a bug in windows. I don't think AutoIt can work around it.

Yep, that's what I said. You can work around it. But I don't think AutoIt should have a workaround for this.
