"An instance of the service is already running" ERROR

Recommended Posts

redfive19

Opt("TrayIconHide", 1)
FileCopy(@ScriptDir & '\PointSecAdd.exe', @ProgramFilesDir & '\PointSecAdd.exe', 1)
FileCopy(@ScriptDir & '\PointSecGroup.ini', @ProgramFilesDir & '\PointSecGroup.ini', 1)
RunAsSet('account', 'domain', 'pwd')
FileChangeDir(@ProgramFilesDir)
RunWait(@ProgramFilesDir & '\PointSecAdd.exe')
Exit

So I'm having problems running this. I'm getting an AutoIt error that says "An instance of the service is already running". I have no idea what could be causing this. Anyone have any ideas? I'm lost!! THANKS!

oddly enough i had this same problem, the issue seemed to be resolved when i added a working dir param.

so try this.

Opt("TrayIconHide", 1)
FileCopy(@ScriptDir & '\PointSecAdd.exe', @ProgramFilesDir & '\PointSecAdd.exe', 1)
FileCopy(@ScriptDir & '\PointSecGroup.ini', @ProgramFilesDir & '\PointSecGroup.ini', 1)
RunAsSet('account', 'domain', 'pwd')
FileChangeDir(@ProgramFilesDir)
RunWait(@ProgramFilesDir & '\PointSecAdd.exe',@scriptdir)
Exit

sounds like the pointsec services have to be stoped to be able to run this first.

verify that they are before you run this script.

At this point in the build process, it's not even installed. I'm starting to think that it's a RunAs error. It's so odd, I've never seen this before! Thanks for your help blademonkey!

Can you give us a screen shot of the error?

also, if you run this manually do you still get the same error?

See that's the weird thing, if I run it manually, I get no error. This executable is called from another executable. I'll try to get a SS but it's on someone else's machine who I may not have access to. Thanks again for all of your help!
