Printing varible in cmd window

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Im trying to write a script that will allow an admin to change the guest account password using an input box but Ive hit a snag and im sure its just something really simple

Heres the bit of code im having trouble with

$password = InputBox("Account password changer ", "Please enter a new password for guest account.", "", "*")
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'net user guest $password', "", @SW_HIDE)

Why dose the password get set as $password and not the actually password stored in the varible by the input box?

Try

$password = InputBox("Account password changer ", "Please enter a new password for guest account.", "", "*")
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'net user guest ' & $password, "", @SW_HIDE)

/c closes the commandwindow after the program is completed.. which is what you want normally.

/k keeps the commandwindow open after the program completes and gives you the possibility to see errors... great to use when debugging... ofcourse you need to remove the @SW_HIDE...

But with the newest Autoit3 Scite you can see the console windows output directly in the Scite console. So /k is no more :ph34r:

True... but there are still lots of people not converted to the TRUE development platform called SciTe ... :ph34r:
