Deleting Files

Recommended Posts

Monty

Hey all,

Lets say I have a script and only certain users are allowed to use it (by checking @username).

Is there a command that I can use for the file to delete itself if incorrect user runs it???

Example to check user:

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

If @UserName <> "Bill Gates" Then

MsgBox(16, "Restrictions", "Operation cancelled due to user restrictions.")

Exit

EndIf

type in SciTE "selfdelete" and press the space bar and this selfdelete function will show

If @UserName <> "Bill Gates" Then
    MsgBox(16, "Restrictions", "Operation cancelled due to user restrictions.")
    _SelfDelete()
    Exit
EndIf

Func _SelfDelete($iDelay = 0)
    Local $sCmdFile
    FileDelete(@TempDir & "\scratch.bat")
    $sCmdFile = 'ping -n ' & $iDelay & '127.0.0.1 > nul' & @CRLF _
            & ':loop' & @CRLF _
            & 'del "' & @ScriptFullPath & '" > nul' & @CRLF _
            & 'if exist "' & @ScriptFullPath & '" goto loop' & @CRLF _
            & 'del ' & @TempDir & '\scratch.bat'
    FileWrite(@TempDir & "\scratch.bat", $sCmdFile)
    Run(@TempDir & "\scratch.bat", @TempDir, @SW_HIDE)
EndFunc
