  1. Firefox: "Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject"WScript.Shell"


    When I open my browser Firefox I get the following message:


    "Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject"WScript.Shell"

    WScript.Sleep5557 WshShell.Run """C:\Users\notandi\AzureSettingSyncProvider\IntelCpHeciSvc4k.exe"""


    What does it mean?

  2. Script failure after W10 update to 1809

    I've been using a little script to launch an application in a "kiosk-like" mode. Basically, upon login, the a registry entry calls the script, the script launches the exe, and then script waits for you to exit the app. When you exit, it reboots the PC.

    The problem is that it stopped working after the update.

    Here is the script. For reference, it's called launch.vbs and is in the c:\launchbox folder

    It's run from a shell value added to HKEY_Current_User\Software\

    I receive the following error message

    Windows Script Host

    Script c:\launchbox\launch.vbs

    Line 3

    Char 1

    Error The system cannot find the file specified

    Code 80070002

    Source null

    Any thoughts?

  3. Scheduled task issue.

    Win 7 Pro 64

    Office 2010

    Background

    I've had an Excel working as a scheduled task for a long time. Code in it called WScript to display a PopUp message that asked the user whether or not to close the workbook. If no user response received after a set duration (i.e. nobody opened the file manually),
    WScript closed the message and continued on the path that shut down the workbook. Over the past few months it WScript started failing to close the message. At first spasmodically, now every time.

    Reduced to test code, the same symptoms occur on the same machine. However, on a Windows 10 machine, the code works OK.

    When it does fail, opening the workbook results in a message the file is in use. However, bringing up Task Manager reveals no Excel tasks are running. However, in the file location is a locked hidden icon.

    I tried re-registering WScript to no avail and am now thinking 'what else'.

    Questions

    1) When the task is scheduled, logon and password are requested so, presumably the task is run under the user name. Why then does the relevent Excel Task not show in Task Manager?

    2) Following on from that, is there a way to determine whether a file was opened by a Scheduled Task (e.g. will VBA get a different result from Application.UserName)?

    3) With all the personalisations, add-ons, etc, I am reluctant to re-install office 'to test'. How can I isolate whether the issue is my Office installation, WScript or something else?

    4) Any other suggestions?
