Batch File not executing correctly.


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have not been able to complete the execution of this batch file.  I have verified that it is indeed correct in syntax, as it runs locally just fine.  

TASKKILL /f /im iexplore.exe
CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer"
timeout /t 5
start iexplore.exe

In essence the code is meant to close Internet Explorer, and restart it upon the 5 second timeout period.  But, it seems like it only executes the first part of the code successfully.  Internet Explorer closes, but nothing else happens. (no errors in pulseway log).  Feel free to run the code as it isn't malicious.  Am I missing something to make work?

Thanks and I hope to get a response soon.  I would greatly appreciate the continued support.

Please note that scripts will run in an isolated session (session zero) which means that all GUI applications will run in a session that's not visible to the console. This has been done to enhance the security and privacy of the end user and to support running scripts while there is no logged in user. You could try using the Enter-PSSession PowerShell cmdlet to join a user session.

Hello,

I put in the Enter-PSSession, and saved it as a Powershell script.  

Enter-PSSession -ComputerName computer1
TASKKILL /f /im iexplore.exe
CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer"
timeout /t 5
start iexplore.exe

It receives the following response. 

ERROR: Input redirection is not supported, exiting the process immediately.

It still closes the program, however still does nothing else.

I found out 

ERROR: Input redirection is not supported, exiting the process immediately.

Was associated with time timeout command.  Upon removing that, the command ignores the following:


CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer"
start iexplore.exe

      Hi all,
      I recently did a clean upgrade to Windows 10 on 2 WKSTs previously running Windows 7 with Pulseway installed.  I am now at a loss as to how to re-add these units to my Pulseway instance.
      I see they are still showing up in the “Deployment Successful” tab under “Discovery & Deployment”.
      Is there a way to re-add these units without manually installing the Pulseway app on these WKSTs?

      Hello, I have a question about the Pulseway app. When the pc is on all of the commands work great and are perfect for managing the pc. But I am attempting to turn on my pc when I am away from my home and then be able to fully control it like I was there. The issue is how the wake up command from sleep or from powered down will not work even when on my home network. How can I fix this. Also a side question, is there a way I would be able to see a live view of the screen or does it only allow screenshots of the screen. Thanks

      We reinstalled Pulseway on a re-imaged system and after the install we noticed issues. In the patch mgmt section, the status was "assign failed" in red. We rebooted the system and then the service was not starting. We checked the service, it was set to start automatically and in the event log it was generating this error: "Service cannot be started.  The handle is invalid"  We removed the system from Pulseway, uninstalled, and reinstalled. Service is starting normally, but still getting the same issue of the patch policy failing to assign. I tried moving the system to another group that did not have a patch policy at all and got the same result.

      I've implemented a script that retrieves and stores the Windows Build Version number to a custom field in the system overview.   It works fine on MOST systems.  However, there are a small number systems that are unable to run the script.  The error message displayed includes: Start-Process : This command cannot be run due to the error: The system cannot find the file specified.
      I used the "Insert Output Variable Code" in the script and verified that it includes the inserted text "Start-Process -FilePath "$env:PWY_HOME\CLI.exe" -ArgumentList ("setVariable  .....".
      For some reason, a few systems do not seem to have the environment variable PWY_HOME set.
      It appears that these systems are using the Enable PowerShell User Impersonation option under Pulseway Manger > Settings > Runtime.
      What is the easiest way to make sure that all of my systems have the PWY_HOME variable set so that any future scripts will not fail because of a missing environment variable?
      Thanks,
      Brant

      I had installed Pulseway and then wanted to delete it but I was not able to find Pulseway in the control panel uninstall feature and so I tried manually uninstalling files but that also did not work. I tried running the .msi installer again but an error came up saying that Pulseway is already installed but it still was not showing up. Please help me with this.
