Windows 7: Batch Scripts

Batch Scripts

I am trying to run/create a batch script for the users on my domain to install a program that will download and update flash and java. I have the .exe stored on the network share and currently have most of the script written. The part where i need help is to have to .exe run as one of our network administrators. Below is the code I have, where/how do I tell it to run as domain.local\networkadmin plus the account's password.

@echo off
cd C:\
mkdir CCFlash
copy \\toohey\CareCloud\CCFlash.exe C:\CCFlash
START C:\CCFlash\CCFlash.exe /silent S:\IT\CCFlashReports\reports.txt /repair

All help is appreciated.

EDIT: This script will run on XP Pro and Windows 7 Pro machines. 32 and 64 bit.

Take a look at the runas command, it should give you what you need


RUNAS [ [/noprofile | /profile] [/env] [/savecred | /netonly] ]
/user:<UserName> program

RUNAS [ [/noprofile | /profile] [/env] [/savecred] ]
/smartcard [/user:<UserName>] program

RUNAS /trustlevel:<TrustLevel> program

/noprofile specifies that the user's profile should not be loaded.
This causes the application to load more quickly, but
can cause some applications to malfunction.
/profile specifies that the user's profile should be loaded.
This is the default.
/env to use current environment instead of user's.
/netonly use if the credentials specified are for remote
access only.
/savecred to use credentials previously saved by the user.
This option is not available on Windows 7 Home or Windows 7
Starter Editions
and will be ignored.
/smartcard use if the credentials are to be supplied from a
/user <UserName> should be in form USER@DOMAIN or DOMAIN\USER
/showtrustlevels displays the trust levels that can be used as arguments
to /trustlevel.
/trustlevel <Level> should be one of levels enumerated
in /showtrustlevels.
program command line for EXE. See below for examples

> runas /noprofile /user:mymachine\administrator cmd
> runas /profile /env /user:mydomain\admin "mmc %windir%\system32\dsa.msc"
> runas /env / "notepad \"my file.txt\""

NOTE: Enter user's password only when prompted.
NOTE: /profile is not compatible with /netonly.
NOTE: /savecred is not compatible with /smartcard.

Sorry for confusion - the runas is a replacement for the regular start command

you should also be able to add the parameters from you start instruction in you original script, but you may need to "play" with the quotes to get it to accept them

You do realize you're going to need to either hardcode the domain admin password into that file (not smart) or have to type it in at runtime, right?

Windows Startup scripts.. exactly when?
I have a vbscript that starts a Virtual PC Machine - the script runs perfect when executed manually or from the command line. I've placed it in the all users startup, but when I reboot it does not run until I log in. Is this the expected behavior? How can I have it start when Windows starts up.....

message about scripts on bootup?
Hi this is probably not a windows 7 problem but has only arisen since I changed from Vista, when I switch on and log in , as soon as my desktop appears I get a message (attached) can't seem to get rid of it, maybe I'm missing something obvious here?:confused:
