I never was that great with scripting... I am trying to perform the following remotely:

## 2.

Using another script, execute the file
The second step is a script that was provided to me by N-able, the application I'm trying to remotely download. The end-game is that I'm currently using a tool called GFI Max RemoteManagement. I'm switching from GFI to N-able and want to automate the N-able deployment.

When I run my BITSadmin script, I am presented with an error message:

C:\PROGRA~2\ADVANC~1\scripts>bitsadmin.exe /transfer "N-able" http://itworksllc.net/downloads/EXECUTABLE.exe C:\Windows\TEMP\EXECUTABLE.exe

BITSADMIN version 3.0 [ 7.5.7601 ]

BITSAdmin is deprecated and is not guaranteed to be available in future versions of Windows.
Administrative tools for the BITS service are now provided by BITS PowerShell cmdlets.

Unable to complete transfer.
ERROR CODE: 0x80200013 - The server does not support the necessary HTTP protocol. Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) requires that the server support the Range protocol header.

ERROR CONTEXT: 0x00000005 - The error occurred while the remote file was being processed.


I don't care how I download the file. I need to be able to use Windows 7 to download this file. I may also need to download it on Vista or XP. GFI states: Supported script types: js, vbs, cmd, bat, pl, php, py, rb, ps1

Obviously the computer needs to be able to support these types of scripts... Assume these are out of the box versions of Windows 7 - both Home and Professional.

Hopefully someone can help!

I not quite sure if I understand correctly what you are trying to do remotely.  However if you just want to download a file from the internet via a scrip on a windows system, get the wget.exe utility from the internet.

Then in a batch file write:
@echo off


Cheers!

I need to be able to perform the download on 90 computers that are on separate networks. It wouldn't make sense for me to figure out how to deploy wget to all of them (some don't even have servers/domains) when I could just deploy n-able to all of them individually.

I'm really hoping to get a script that will allow me to download a file from the internet across all of these devices.

Using Powershell:
$source = "http://itworksllc.net/downloads/EXECUTABLE.exe"$destination = "C:\Windows\TEMP\EXECUTABLE.exe"

$wc = New-Object System.Net.WebClient$wc.DownloadFile($source,$destination)

HTH,

I think the extension for that is just .ps right?

.ps1, usually

Got it. So I right clicked the PS1 and selected "Run in PowerShell" to see if it would work. I was asked if I want to trust the script. I guess I just assume this will happen on all of the workstations I try to run this on remotely. Any way around this?

I am testing it on a Windows 8 machine - I guess I should clarify that most endpoints are Windows 7, so just let me know if this won't apply on Windows 7.

You can run it like this, from the command prompt:
powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass &'X:\path\to\script.ps1'

GFI is so frustrating... I can only do all of this with a single script.  >:(
