ObjGet from a vbscript

3 posts in this topic

I have a vbscript that I want to convert to an AutoIt script that sets the password for the specified local account.

Here is the vb script:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")

strComputer = WshNetwork.ComputerName

strPSWD = "password"

Set objUser = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "/jdoe,user")

If Err.Number = 0 Then

objUser.SetPassword strPSWD

objUser.SetInfo

End If

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is the AutoIt Script:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

$Password = "password"

$objUser = ObjGet("WinNT://" & @ComputerName & "/jdoe,user")

If @error = 0 Then

$objUser.SetPassword $Password

$objUser.SetInfo

EndIf

------------------------------------------------------------------------

The vbscript works fine but I get an error with the AutoIt script. The error is with the line "$objUser.SetPassword $Password". The error message is "The requested action with this object has failed"

Anyone know what the problem is?

Thanks,

Joe

I tried different things and "$objUser.SetPassword($Password)" worked.

I wish there was more documentation on the correct syntax with Objects.

Thanks,

Joe
