Running AutoIt script remotely

Recommended Posts



I am trying to use an AutoIt script to automate some tasks on a Windows box. The tasks involve opening up a program and compiling some code and changing some configurations.

I have the script running as a service (Q4 from the FAQs)

From a Linux box I am trying to start the service by sshing into the Windows box (has ssh-cygwin server on it) and running "net start service_name".

I am getting this error

Administrator@CGYVMSRV03 ~

$ net start service_name

System error 5 has occurred.

Access is denied.

I am logged in as administrator so I figure I should have permission to do anything I want.

I have the service set to Logon as: Local System Account (with a check mark on "Allow service to interact with desktop")

Can someone tell me if what I'm trying to do is possible (since I am trying to start the service without a graphic interface) or if there is a better way to do this?

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure as this is really an AutoIt related issue?

Sorry, it's not really an Autoit issue ... I'm not sure where else I could ask a question and I'm just wondering if anyone has a better solution for me. I have read about psexec but that won't work for me because I'm using a Linux box.
