How to share a folder ?

15 posts in this topic

Hello.

I do not see an AutoIt function to share a folder.

Is sharing a folder with AutoIt possible, without of course calling an external program ?

Thank you.

What do you mean by "a function to share a folder"? Do you mean sharing a specified folder on your network?

If this is what u want you can do it by using the "net share" command, here is the full documentation http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documen...e.mspx?mfr=true

Hello.

What I mean by "share a folder" :

In AutoIt, there is, between others, functions to work with map drives (DriveMapAdd, ...).

I have to install a legacy program (setup is on a network share that I can map in the script with DriveMapAdd).

This legacy program needs a share on the local c:\temp folder for the installation (and also after for execution).

Hence I want to do the equivalent windows command "net share temp=c:\temp", but with a function in AutoIt, but also WITHOUT using run("cmd /C net share...") in AutoIt.

$strComputer = @ComputerName
$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\"& $strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
$objNewShare = $objWMIService.Get("Win32_Share")
$errReturn = $objNewShare.Create("C:\Finance", "FinanceShare", 0, 25, "Public share for the Finance group.")

This may help you...

Hi,

ConsoleWrite(_freigebenOrdner("c:\downloads", "saugen", "Dies ist ein Freigabe test!"))
Sleep(5000)
ConsoleWrite(_freigebenOrdner("c:\downloads", "saugen", "", 1))

Func _freigebenOrdner($pfad, $freigabeName = "Datenfreigabe", $beschreibung = "Freigabe", $delete = 0)
    If $delete <> 0 Then
        Return RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c net share ' & $freigabeName & ' /delete', '', @SW_HIDE)
    Else
        Return RunWait(@ComSpec & ' /c net share ' & $freigabeName & '=' & $pfad & ' /remark:"' & $beschreibung & '"', '', @SW_HIDE)
    EndIf
EndFunc  ;==>_freigebenOrdner

So long,

Thank you very very much.

This works perfectly.

$strComputer = @ComputerName
$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\"& $strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
$objNewShare = $objWMIService.Get("Win32_Share")
$errReturn = $objNewShare.Create("C:\Finance", "FinanceShare", 0, 25, "Public share for the Finance group.")

^^ did you read the "but with a function in AutoIt, but also WITHOUT using run("cmd /C net share...") in AutoIt." before posting :whistle:

Thank you.

But, if possible, I prefer not to launch another runwait by an external program (cmd.exe or other).

I don't get it... why is using wmi/vba/whatever better than using cmdline?

You don't see anything at all and you may read out all the stderror or stdout that's generated by cmdline-programs.

Just wondering... in this case, net is even bundled with windows. :whistle:

@dabus : I had a few examples for this, for example if you are in a safe Citrix session (or internet cafe system with very restricted programs) you won't allow any cmd.exe or net to work... I also think that using run and things like that isn't the cleanest solution...

Hi,

I found it funny because there are several solutions and nevertheless there is still a discussion.
