Force script to run locally

3 posts in this topic

I have some compiled AutoIt scripts that run from a network drive. The scripts worked fine on XP. With Vista, the scripts would only work if run locally. (UAC is disabled; I think the issue was with some nested RunAs magic and how Vista handles credentials.)

Anyway, the following fixed all my scripts that broke with Vista:

If FileGetLongName(@TempDir) <> FileGetLongName(@ScriptDir) Then
    FileCopy(@ScriptName, @TempDir & "\" & @ScriptName)
    Run(@TempDir & "\" & @ScriptName)
    Exit
EndIf

;This script is running locally now.
MsgBox(0x1000, "Test", "Running locally now" & @LF & @ScriptDir)

; Optionally use the _SelfDelete() UDF to clean up after self...

P.S. It's been too long since I've been on the forums!

You bet it has. Welcome back. And yes, your sig does need a minor update. It looks like it's from 3 years ago.

That's interesting. It took me a moment to figure out the first If statement, but it's pretty sound.
