#800 closed Bug (No Bug)

runas from a network path

Reported by: anonymous Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


I have written a script that will elevate an uninstall process to admin credentials. This works nicely when run from a local drive. However when run from a network path, the scripts pauses.

RunAs Command line reads:

RunAs($Admin, @LogonDomain, $AdminPwd,1,@ComSpec & ' /c ' & $RemoveOld)
As I'm using the @ComSpec /c, when running from local drive the command line box appears. When running same script (absolutely no changes) from a network path, this command line box does not appear.

To get around this I have created a .cmd file that copies the script file from the network path to the local drive and run script locally. Bit of a bummer!

  • Resolution set to No Bug
  • Status changed from new to closed

The user you are running as can not see the network drive. Read the first statement under "Remarks" for RunAs() in the documentation. This is not a bug in AutoIt.
