Hi Guys,

I use kixtart95 for as the logon script on my network. I was wondering whether it would be possible to attach a batch file to it that could be used to copy various dll's, pnl's etc to a designated folder on the PCs when they logon to the network?

Hope that makes sense.

Regards

Yes it can..  

But it depends on what you need to do and whether what you want to do will require admin rights on the users machine.

To run a batch file in Kix use this command:

Run '%COMSPEC% /e:1024 /c "Path and name of batch file"'

Now heres the clever bit...  Say you needed to run this script and it needed admin rights but the users were just standard users..  What I did was create a specific NT account and made it a member of the domain admins group.  Now I call my batch program using this script:

SetTitle ("TITLEHERE")
Run '%COMSPEC% /e:1024 /c runas /user:[DOMAIN]\[USER] "Path and name of batch file"'
$trash= SetFocus ("Maxadm")
Sleep 3
$trash= SendKeys("kixtart{PASSWORD}")

I actually encrypt my script using kixcrypt (see www.kixtart.org) to prevent users from reading the password.

Hope this helps

Just noticed a mistake above..  

$trash=SetFocus("Maxadm")  should read:

$trash=SetFocus("TITLEHERE")

You need to set the title name and the set focus to be the same for the script to work..

Sorry

Sorry guys,

Thanks for the above. However my script writing skills are limited. What would such a script look like?

Erm..   Like the above.

It depends what you want to do.  Have a look at www.kixtart.org for loads of sample scripts.
