Hi All,

I seem to be having some problems with this following code snibett:
code:
  
:StartUp

;**********************************************************************

Dim $err, $key

$err = SetConsole("ALWAYSONTOP")
$err = SetColsole("FOREGROUND")
$err = SetConsole("SHOW")

Break Off

$key = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\ACI-GF\Settings\"

; Get Some User/Worstation/Network Information from our Registry Keys
$PG = ReadValue($key + "User Info", "Primary Group") ; User's Primary Group
$Priv = ReadValue($key + "User Info", "Privledge") ; User's System Privledges
$FName = ReadValue($key + "User Info", "User Name") ; Users Full Name
$UserId = ReadValue($key + "User Info", "UserID") ; Users ID
$Service = ReadValue($key + "User Info", "Comment") ; Group name assigned from comment field
$IPA = ReadValue($key + "Workstation Info", "IP Address") ; The User's Workstation IP Address
$WkSta = ReadValue($key + "Workstation Info", "Workstation Name") ; User's Workstation Name
$LPath = ReadValue($key + "Network", "Logon Path") ; Get Logon Server Path
$LServer = ReadValue($key + "Network", "Logon Server") ; Get Logon Server
$Domain = ReadValue($key + "Network", "Local Domain") ; Domain
$VPN = ReadValue($key + "Network", "VPN Status") ; Connected Via VPN?
$RAS = ReadValue($key + "Network", "RAS Status") ; Connected Via RAS?

:END
Exit(0)

We are using Win2K clients and it seems for some reason the text window does not become visible. It is always minimized on the desktop. The only way I can get it to become visible is to SetColsole("MAXIMIZE"). I don't want it maximized just visible in normal size.

Anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this?

Thanks.

Do a quick search for "RunLogonScriptSync" or check out the FAQ.

W2k - Keep the Window visible on login?

You need to spell "SetConsole" Correctly
You have it spelled SetColsole in your script
---------------------------------------
$err = SetConsole("ALWAYSONTOP")
$err = SetColsole("FOREGROUND")
$err = SetConsole("SHOW")

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the suggestions.
I figured it out after. I always find the answer right after I post a question. [Big Grin]

Anyway this is what I did:
code:
 
$enable = "1"
$key = "'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon"

; This setting defines whether the system should wait for the logon scripts to complete before
; starting the users shell or whether the scripts should run asynchronously.
If (ExistKey($key) = 0)
$err = WriteValue($key,"RunLogonScriptSync",$enable,"REG_DWORD")
Else
EndIf

$err = SetConsole("ALWAYSONTOP")
$err = SetConsole("FOREGROUND"); SPELLING MISTAKE BEFORE
$err = SetConsole("SHOW")

Thanks again,

Another question:

How do you hide the output from a SHELL statement from being displayed in a text box?

I have a SHELL command running in one of my scripts that copies files but I don't want the output to be shown on the screen. I tried this test script:
code:
 Dim $err

$err = Shell "%COMSPEC% /C COPY c:\temp\*.kix c:\kixtart"

But it don't work. Any ideas on this one?

Thanks again.....

Jes,

Use Windows for a little while and you forget all of your DOS stuff. [Frown]

I should have remembered this.

Thanks.

Dear,

FYI: additional info

For spelling problems we have upgrade our kixref tool. For different
kixtart releases we have different kixref releases.
What does it:
- shows all kind of keywords which can be "unknown" for kixtart.
- shows linenumbers for possible problems.
- shows summary report about keyword types and block structures.
Our call was:
kixref400.exe input.kix output /warnings
Output for your script
code:
   Warnings about unknown keywords

b ? 40 42 42 44 46 49 62 64 66 69 78
double ? 41
full ? 47
g ? 46
grid ? 43
n ? 44 62
setcolsole ? 15
single ? 65
w ? 49 66 69
y ? 40 64 78



Summary

boldsymbols 0
commands 7
functions 4
labels 2
macros 0
variables 14

env 0
udf 0
? 10

gosub 0
goto 0

37


Block Structure

do:until [0:0]
for|each:in|to:step|next [0|0:0|0:0|0]
function:endfunction [0:0]
if:else:endif [0:0:0]
select:case:endselect [0:0:0]
while:loop [0:0]

0 blocks

remarks about:
- b, g, n, w & y are related to "color" statement.
- double, full,grid & single are related to "box" function. advise to present them
as string (see also documentation)
- setcolsole is a spelling problem.

greetings.

I had cut-n-pasted the script into my messages EXCEPT that one line and thet's where the spelling mistake came from.

Spelling is NOT my strong point! [Mad]

Thanks...
