Computer Plucker is a fork and a "restoration" of Computer stats utility by @Rogue5099 (link)
You can obtain various data about local machine, as from the screenshot.
But my goal is not (only) to provide another PC stats tool, but to develop a very basic remote inventory tool, like (a small subset of) the abandoned Spiceworks or the Microsoft SCCM.
So this script can be deployed on a machine as a standalone executable (yes you need only ONE file to distribute) , and launching the .EXE it installs itself to a folder (es. c:\autoit\computerplucker)
In tools menù you can set two tasks and not only
one for creating every week a file.ini with all the data of the machine. another one for creating every week a file.ini with all the data of the machine PLUS uploading a CRYPTED record of the machine in a free mysql DB online For my needs, I am deploying the .exe and schedule the second task, uploading data one time a week.
In tools menù you will find also commands for:
manual creating the .ini data file to upload the data in crypted records to upload the data in clear text records (for testing..) total uninstall of ComputerPlucker, with a simple security code. many other tasks in not so logical order.. next version I have to tidy the menù... So my plan is to deploy this on my machines, and have the data in a online DB, this DB will be for me only a "cache" for data records to be downloaded (and deleted) by another script.
As today the account of this TEST DB is embedded in code, using the "File to Base64 String' Code Generator" by @UEZ (used also for embedding icons and XML task definitions)
Local $mysqlhost = "sql11.freemysqlhosting.net"
Local $mysqlport = "3306"
Local $mysqldb = "sql11403701"
Local $mysqluser = "sql11403701"
Local $mysqlpsw = "QtL7T9U5GV"
The DB is one table of 30 mysql tinytext fields... very simple indeed...
You can try to upload data to this DB and access (phpmyadmin or a random mysql browser app) to see the results.
Or you can use my ComputerPluckerDBbrowser (see at the end of this post) a script to collect and manage the data.
PRIVACY warning: you are uploading data of your PC account and PC data, test as your risk (or test in another account...)
I also created a small post in a blog for not so geek friends, and I have a more advanced version of the data browser, you can have more info lookin' here. 😀
Attached you will find the code, and all the necessary includes are at this >link<.

Autoit-Socket-IO is a event driven TCP/IP wrapper heavily inspired from Socket.IO with focus on user friendliness and long term sustainability.
I constantly want to make this UDF faster and better, so if you have any suggestions or questions (beginner and advanced) Do not hesitate to ask them, I will gladly help!
Simple API 99% data-type serialization thanks to Autoit-Serialize Can easily be extended with your own functionality thanks to Autoit-Events "Educational" examples Data encryption thanks to _<Crypt.au3> Limitations
Speed. This UDF will sacrifice some speed for convenience Read more in the official thread
I having some hard times getting false-positive, probably because I am trying to execute my AutoUpdater.
Here is my code:
Global $iUpdateTimer = 0 While 1 checkUpdates(10) WEnd Func checkUpdates($iDelay = 10) $iDelay = $iDelay * 1000 * 60 If TimerDiff($iUpdateTimer) > $iDelay Then ConsoleWrite('checking for updates...' & @CRLF) $iUpdateTimer = TimerInit() If FileExists('AutoUpdater.exe') Then ShellExecuteWait('AutoUpdater.exe') ; this is the line which cause my problem EndIf EndFunc And AutoUpdater code:
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <FileConstants.au3> Global $sExecName = 'test.exe' Global $sUpdatePath = @UserProfileDir &'\desktop\AnyAppName\update\'& $sExecName Global $sUserPath = @UserProfileDir &'\desktop\AnyAppName\'& $sExecName Global $sCopyright = 'someUniqueStringHere' If Not FileExists($sUpdatePath) Then Exit 0 If FileGetVersion($sUpdatePath, $FV_LEGALCOPYRIGHT) <> $sCopyright Then Exit 0 ; checking if we really want to update and execute the file If FileGetVersion($sUpdatePath) > FileGetVersion($sUserPath) Then $iResponse = MsgBox(BitOR($MB_YESNO, $MB_ICONQUESTION),'AnyAppName', 'There is an update available, would you like to update?') If $iResponse == $IDYES Then If ProcessExists($sExecName) Then ProcessClose($sExecName) Sleep(500) EndIf FileCopy($sUpdatePath, $sUserPath, $FC_OVERWRITE) Sleep(3000) ShellExecute($sUserPath) Exit 1 EndIf EndIf Exit 0 I am not trying to ask, why is my code is getting recognized as false-positive, because this is quite obvious, but is there any other way to get things done without running external process?
hello autoit team
is there any wey to check if any process run as admin or no?
i mean e.g if i want to restart any process, now i have the ability to get the process path and commands line
what i need is a wey to check if the process was runing as admin or no to restart it with the same state.
here is the part that am using it to restart the process
func _processRestart($i_pid, $s_ProcessPath) if not (ProcessExists($i_ProcessPid)) then return SetError(1, 0, -1) local $s_ProcessWorkDir = _WinAPI_GetProcessWorkingDirectory($i_ProcessPid) ProcessClose($i_ProcessPid) ProcessWaitClose($i_ProcessPid) ProcessWait(ShellExecute($i_pid,"", $s_ProcessWorkDir)) ProcessesGetList() return true endFunc thanks in advance
