Run .exe only once on each PC in AD domain.

I need to run the following command (which will install the Citrix Online Plugin with specific provisions) run ONCE on each computer in my domain.

\\domain.domain.com\NETLOGON\CitrixOnlinePluginFull.exe  /silent ADDLOCAL="ICA_Client, PN_Agent,SSON" ENABLE_SSON=YES ENABLE_DYNAMIC_CLIENT_NAME=YES SERVER_LOCATION="Citrixserv"

Open in new window


I have a script that I found online that SHOULD take care of it, but I keep getting an Expected: end of statement error after the first quotation mark under ADDLOCAL.

This is the script:

Dim objShell, objFSO

Const ForWriting = 2

Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

If Not objFSO.FileExists("C:\Marker.txt") Then
    objShell.Run "\\domain.domain.com\NETLOGON\CitrixOnlinePluginFull.exe /silent ADDLOCAL="ICA_Client, PN_Agent,SSON" ENABLE_SSON=YES ENABLE_DYNAMIC_CLIENT_NAME=YES SERVER_LOCATION="Citrixserv" "

    Set objMarker = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\Marker.txt", ForWriting, True)
    objMarker.Write "CitrixOnlinePlugin.exe has ran!"
    objMarker.Close
End If

Set objShell = Nothing
Set objFSO = Nothing
Set objMarker = Nothing

Open in new window


Can anyone help with making VBScript recognize that this command needs to run in it's entirety?

Thanks in advance.

Try:
Dim objShell, objFSO

Const ForWriting = 2

Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

If Not objFSO.FileExists("C:\Marker.txt") Then
    objShell.Run "\\domain.domain.com\NETLOGON\CitrixOnlinePluginFull.exe /silent ADDLOCAL="""ICA_Client, PN_Agent,SSON""" ENABLE_SSON=YES ENABLE_DYNAMIC_CLIENT_NAME=YES SERVER_LOCATION="""Citrixserv""""

    Set objMarker = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\Marker.txt", ForWriting, True)
    objMarker.Write "CitrixOnlinePlugin.exe has ran!"
    objMarker.Close
End If

Set objShell = Nothing
Set objFSO = Nothing
Set objMarker = Nothing

Open in new window

There's not enough quotes on that line.  It should be:

    objShell.Run "\\domain.domain.com\NETLOGON\CitrixOnlinePluginFull.exe /silent ADDLOCAL=""ICA_Client, PN_Agent,SSON"" ENABLE_SSON=YES ENABLE_DYNAMIC_CLIENT_NAME=YES SERVER_LOCATION=""Citrixserv""", 0, True

Regards,

Rob.

better should be to check existence of the file: C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\pnagent.exe
Somebody can delete your Marker.txt.

Rob: Thanks, your version of the command did work for me.

Tominov: This was actually a much better idea than what I had planned. Thanks for pointing me in that direction.
