Convert VB to AutoIT

Recommended Posts


Hey All,

I am a total noob, sorry in advance. I found a VB script and am trying to convert it to Autoit. I will include the VB script, and what I have so far. Please take a look. Please try to make your answers as simple as possible, I am seriously new at this and trying to get the hang. I am running on Vista. It is not working yet, so what is wrong/missing? Thank you!!

VB Script as Posted

strComputer = "localhost"

If Not strComputer = "" Then

strComputer = trim(strComputer)

set objAltirisAgent = createobject ( "Altiris.AeXNSClient", strComputer )

ignoreBlockouts = 1

sendIfUnchanged = 1

objAltirisAgent.SendBasicInventory sendIfUnchanged, ignoreBlockouts

End If

[u][b]Converted to AutoIT (So Far)[/[/u]b]
dim $computer
$computer = "localhost"
$objAltirisAgent = ObjCreate ("Altiris.AeXNSClient", $computer)
With $objAltirisAgent
    .ignoreBlockouts = 1
    .sendIfUnchanged = 1

ignoreBlockouts and sendIfUnchanged seem to be variables.

Try this


$strComputer = "localhost"
If $strComputer <> "" Then
    $strComputer = StringStripWS($strComputer, 3)
    $objAltirisAgent = ObjCreate ( "Altiris.AeXNSClient", $strComputer )
    If Not @error Then
        $ignoreBlockouts = 1
        $sendIfUnchanged = 1
        $objAltirisAgent.SendBasicInventory ( $sendIfUnchanged, $ignoreBlockouts )

I think all you need there is

Global $computer = "localhost", $ignoreBlockouts = 1, $sendIfUnchanged = 1
$objAltirisAgent = ObjCreate ("Altiris.AeXNSClient", $computer)
$objAltirisAgent.SendBasicInventory ($sendIfUnchanged, $ignoreBlockouts)

That's just going by the posted code. If you can provide a link to the page you found it on, there may be more information there.

Thank you both, I was able to use both of them. I got it working right before my boss walked in and told me we don't need to add that piece. :-)
