Set computer name

4 posts in this topic

Hello!

I want to change the computer name but I don't know how. I've looked through the entire help file but did not find solution. Would you please help me?

Also I want to ask another thing. @Computername returns the computername so I thought that if I find where the macros get their values I'll find out how to change the computername but I couldn't find where the macros are defined. Can I see the definitions of the macros?

Thank you for your time

p.p. sorry for my english

i'm trying to improve it


I ran. I ran until my muscles burned and my veins pumped battery acid. Then I ran some more.

Look at the "@" symbol under "Index" in the help file for the macro names and defs.

Also... If you can't find it in help, try the Advanced Search Feature of the forum.


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

thanks

when I asked about the macro defs I didn't mean their description but how they get their values (something like @Computername=something)

anyway - thank you

I've found solution

RenameComputerName($userid)

Func _RenameComputerName($sComputerName)
    If Not RegWrite("HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ComputerName\ActiveComputerName", "ComputerName","REG_SZ", $sComputerName) Then Return(1)
    If Not RegWrite("HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ComputerName\ComputerName", "ComputerName", "REG_SZ", $sComputerName) Then Return(1)
    If Not RegWrite("HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters", "Hostname", "REG_SZ", $sComputerName) Then Return(1)
    If Not RegWrite("HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters", "NV Hostname", "REG_SZ", $sComputerName) Then Return(1)
    Return(0)
EndFunc

K, yeah... I have a list of those myself for another language.
