I just upgraded from version 4.53 to the latest and for some reason it's not running. We normally ran it by running kix32.exe in AD logon script under the profile tab.

I also tried different commands like:
kix32.exe kixtart.kix
kix kixtart.kix
kix32.exe
etc

Nothing has changed except the version. Could there be something different about the newest version that affects how it is supposed to be run?

Thanks,

You may have to include the path to the kix executable.

kix32 scriptname.kix should be all it needs.

Actually if I try that Allen, it gives me a failure to find script error. Of course I have no domain, so this is just running it from the windows directory.

wkix32.exe kixtart.kix
ERROR: failed to find/open script [kixtart.kix]!

wkix32.exe C:\windows\kixtart.kix
Script runs successfully.

Not sure why.

"C:\windows\wkix32.exe kixtart.kix" also works. Wonder if I just have another copy somewhere that is getting run when the path is not specified.

Kix loads the script from the same path where Kix32 was run from unless an explicit path is specified. For the kix32.exe kixtart.kix to work,both files must be in the same folder, or Kix32 must be in the PATH and Kixtart.kix in the current folder. During the login process, \\domain\netlogon is in the path, insuring that it will work.

Jeff - is your script Tokenized? If so, you'll need to re-tokenize the source to run it with any 4.6x release. The script may not run, may throw a strange error, or may work depending on the functions called by the script. The source is backwardcompatible, but the tokenizing engine made small changes.

Yeah it's weird. I know that's how it's supposed to work. But I even checked my %path%. The first and the only directory listed that contains kix32.exe is the 'C:\Windows' directory. I have a kixtart.kix file in that same directory that simply pops up a messagebox. But if I go to Start/Run and type in "kix32.exe kixtart.kix", I get the failed to find script error. And if I simply run "kix32.exe" it just flashes a console for a second with no error, and no messagebox. I don't know why it's not working, or if it's related to the posters problem...But...It doesn't seem to be working for me as expected.

This works fine running from a command prompt.. using START / RUN isn't the same.

I have some notes back in the office, but I'm on vacation until after labor day. I'll post my notes when I get back.
