Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've beeen trying to set up a batch-script which should do the following:

First, install a exe file, preferrably quietly (of course check if it's already installed). Then traverse to where .net framework is installed. After the traverse, it should set Caspol rights and regasm. And then copy some shortcuts and a checkfile (to see if this has already been done).

Does anyone have any idea why this is not working? When I do the commands by copy & paste into my commandline, everything works, but not when the script is running.

Suggestions on what is wrong, and some improvements would be greatly appreciated.

REM Upgrade RS Framework 2.0V
@echo off

if exist "C:\CheckNet.txt" GOTO END

P:\RS\Klient\PClient.exe

cd\
cd C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727

caspol -machine -addgroup 1. -url \\Domain\Program\RS\* FullTrust -n RS -s on

regasm \\Domain\Program\RS\TE.HCW.PRS.RS.Wrapper.dll 

copy \\Domain\Program\TE\RS\ClientInstallation\CheckNet.txt c:\
COPY "\\Domain\Program\shortcut\RS\*.*" "c:\Documents and settings\All Users\Desktop"

:END

In what way is it not working ? Are there any error messages ? –  Iain Nov 22 '10 at 10:42

My guess is you have not explicitly set the drive to 'C:'. It possible that when the script runs it's current working directory is not on the c: drive.

UPDATED: full path to call caspol and regasm

Try this:

REM Upgrade RS Framework 2.0V
@echo off

if exist "C:\CheckNet.txt" GOTO END

P:\RS\Klient\PClient.exe

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\caspol -machine -addgroup 1. -url \\Domain\Program\RS\* FullTrust -n RS -s on
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\regasm \\Domain\Program\RS\TE.HCW.PRS.RS.Wrapper.dll 

copy "\\Domain\Program\shortcut\RS\*.*" "c:\Documents and settings\All Users\Desktop"
copy \\Domain\Program\TE\RS\ClientInstallation\CheckNet.txt c:\

:END

isnt that what this specific code does? "c:\ cd C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727" When I copy and paste this into my commandlinewindow, it jumps straight to my .net framework folder. –  Maclovin Nov 22 '10 at 11:53
    
not if you're on another drive to start with, also you're doing this in your batch file: "cd\ cd C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727" –  BoyMars Nov 22 '10 at 12:29
    
Thanks for all the help, dudes and dudettes. I have some follow up questions: How do I do the Caspol thing quietly? Right now I get "The Operation you are performing, will change your security policy. Are you really really sure you want to do this? The same goes with the application. Is it possible to get this to run quietly? –  Maclovin Nov 23 '10 at 7:21

If the script cannot find CASPOL or REGASM, then likely the path the script is running under is different than the path the command window is running under. In the command window type set path to see the paths that Windows will search looking for a file. Three ways to fix it: One) update the environment the script runs under Two) Add a set path command to the script to set the path before the CASPOL line. Three) Use the full path on the CASPOL and REGASM something like c:\directorypath\CASPOL ....

Can you give me an example on how to do this? –  Maclovin Nov 22 '10 at 17:55

technet says that CASPOL.exe has a -q option that suppresses the prompt temporarily. Haven't tried it myself, but it solve solve your problem. –  BillN Nov 24 '10 at 23:34
    
What I get if I use -q is the same that I get if I dont use -q. "The operation you are about to perform will change the security policy. Are you sure you want to do this? Yes / No –  Maclovin Nov 26 '10 at 14:18
