Windows 7: GPL error 193 in script using C:\windows\system32\appwiz.cpl

GPL error 193 in script using C:\windows\system32\appwiz.cpl

Hi

I'm using a script, that enables hidden password, domain and username to run a command. It works in Windows XP SP2, but not in Windows 7 Home Edition or Windows 7 Enterprise.

Using my script this command doesn't work in Windows XP SP2:

%SystemRoot%\system32\appwiz.cpl

I don't know why, but using my script this command works in Windows XP SP2:

%ComSpec% /C %SystemRoot%\system32\appwiz.cpl


But no one of the above works in Windows 7, where I get an 193 error about not having the needed credentials.

If I in Wndows 7 change my command to:

%ComSpec% /K %SystemRoot%\system32\appwiz.cpl

I get the same error, but I can now use the command line box, and if I type SET, I am told, that my domain and username is my domain administrators credentials.

It's strange because some other cpl commands works when using my script, but the appwiz.cpl doesn't work. These one works on Windows 7 using my script:


%ComSpec% /C %SystemRoot%\system32\collab.cpl
%ComSpec% /C %SystemRoot%\system32\hdwwiz.cpl
%ComSpec% /C %SystemRoot%\system32\inetcpl.cpl


I also tried this one with no luck:
%ComSpec% /C %SystemRoot%\system32\control.exe %SystemRoot%\system32\appwiz.cpl

If I use the Start button and just type appwiz.cpl it works.
If I use the Start button and types cmd.exe, and in the command lne box just types appwiz.cpl it works.

I've found out that my script that enables the hidden password, domain and username needs that the seconday logon service is running. and it is. If I run my script from my own computer using e.g. pseexec.exe to get access to a remote computer, both computers must run the secondary logon service. And the secondary logon service needs the workstation service and netlogon service. The netlogon service only runs on domain computers, not on workgroup computers. And I am working on a domain computer, and all 3 services is running. But if I was working on a workgroup computer, my script wouldn't work, because the netlogon service would only start and immidiately stop again (because of the workgroup).

Please note, that my problem isn't about the script I use, it's a general problem using appwiz.cpl in Windows 7, maybe using Windows builtin runas.exe commad, or e.g. sysinternals pseexec.exe.

If anybody wants to know I'm using the latest version 3.3.8.1 from www.autoitscript.com, but as already told, it's the same problem using a .cmd, .bat or .vbs script

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
