How to send hidden variables to a VB script ?

4 posts in this topic

Hi all

In an AutoIT script, I have to execute a VB script (with the RunWait command : RunWait("C:\WINDOWS\system32\wscript.exe " & $ScriptName,$PathToScriptFolder,@SW_HIDE) ).

This VB script has to connect to a database using a password.

But I don't want this password to be wrote in the VB script (because he can be visible by anyone editing the VB script).

I would rather like to write it in the AutoIT script and then to send it to the VB script in a confidential way.

Do you have a solution (or a begining of solution!) for me ?

Thanks !

FYI, There is a VBS encoder from MS that can encode the script into something that others cannot read.

Pass arguments to the VBS file and then process the arguments within the VBS file

Au3 snip of code

$switches = '"My password here"'
RunWait('"C:\WINDOWS\system32\wscript.exe" "' & $ScriptName & '" ' & $switches, $PathToScriptFolder, @SW_HIDE)

VBS snip of code

Set oArgs = WScript.Arguments
If oArgs.Count() > 0 Then
    Password = Args.item(0)
End If

Great !

Thank ya very much MHz ! ;)

This solves my problem.

See you

ps : I just bring a little correction to your VB snip of code :

Set oArgs = WScript.Arguments
If oArgs.Count() > 0 Then
    Password = oArgs.item(0)      'Here : oArgs instead of Args
End If
