Rebooting machine and script continues

4 posts in this topic

Hi All,

Can some one tell me how can I write script for below scenario.

I have to invoke my application 25 times, for each iteration I have to reboot my machine.

After rebooting script should continue next iteration until it finishes.

Can some one help me on this?

Thanks,

Chaitanya

I would say the best way would be to write a .ini file with where your script left of when it shutdown, then put it in Startup folder. So when it next starts it would read the file and know where it left off.

IniRead

IniDelete

.... check the helpfile

1.You need to auto start your script in Windows - there are several ways :

a. Registry

b. Scheduled task

2.You need to write to a file the number of iterations and read it in the beginning and execute until it reaches 25.

I have some script that I use to configure some installs. What I do is increase the dword value before I force a reboot.

RegWrite ("HKLM\SOFTWARE\ALTIRIS","FLAG", "REG_DWORD", "1")

I place my autoit exe in the all users startup folder. That way it runs when the workstation restarts and logs in. The script starts and reads the value of the dword, then the script uses a case select to know where to start the next config stage. Each time changing the value of the dword once it gets done with the script.

Hope this helps.
