WPI | cond[pn] = helpMe


Recommended Posts


i use

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

from Incroyable HULK's hotfixes page .

is any way to check IF this registry setting exist

into a

cond[pn]=['existREGsetting("reg_path","reg_Key","value")'] ====>>> true if exist , false in rest

2. same thing about a file who exist or not exist on a specified path , and contain or not a string .


if file mrt.log who is places in %windir%\debug folder contain the string "v1.10"

then the condition is true , else is false

something like

cond[pn]=['IsStringInFile("file_path","file_name","string_to_find")'] ====>>> true if exist , false in rest

false is if file dont exist at the specified path .

or maybe i want to much ?

any ideas ?

i change my boolean from post #1 .

i have 33 critical hotfixes for 35 total , who create %windir%\kbXXXXXX.log.

so , i have for each of these 33 hotfixes , 2 entries in WPI .

both entries do same thig : install the hotfix .

but , one of them have as condition

cond[pn]=['getOSver()==XP" && FileExists("%cdrom%\\Windows\\XP\\XP_UpDates\\SP2_UpDates\\KB901214.exe") && !FileExists("%windir%\\KB901214.log")']
and the other
cond[pn]=['getOSver()==XP" && FileExists("%cdrom%\\Windows\\XP\\XP_UpDates\\SP2_UpDates\\KB901214.exe") && FileExists("%windir%\\KB901214.log")']

so i have only one of them showed in WPI when is runned .

at first i write there with red KBxxxxxx - UNinstalled

at second KBxxxxxx - installed , lightblue colour .

so , at first sight , i view very easily on a computer which hotfixes are installed and which not .

so , for those 2 hotfixes KB 890830+873374 (malicious + GDI+) , microsoft do not provide

the log files , so my logic was to create them.

[edit] sorry , i press the wrong button . i will continue next post .

so the ideea was to create the two log files .

; ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
; AutoIt Version: beta
; Language: English
; Platform: WinXP
; Author: oneLess , 25 nov 2005 , ver 1.0
; Script Function:
; create log files for KB893803(GDI+) and KB890830(malicious)
; ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
; Script Start
; ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
#include <GuiConstants.au3>

If WinExists ( "My Computer" ) Then WinClose ( "My Computer" )

$path2 = EnvGet ( "windir" ) & "\Debug\"
$filelog2 = "KB873374.log"
$filelog2_ = "_" & $filelog2
verific_reg ( $path2 , $filelog2 , $filelog2_ , "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\GdiDetectionTool" , "GDITool" , 1 )

$filelog1 = "KB890830v110.log"
$filelog1_ = "_" & $filelog1
verific_reg ( $path2 , $filelog1 , $filelog1_ , "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\RemovalTools\MRT" , "Version" , "1F5BA617-240A-42FF-BE3B-14B88D004E43" )


; ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Func verific_reg ( $path , $filelog , $filelog_ , $key , $value , $data)
Local $file , $var
$file = FileOpen ( $path & $filelog , 0 )
if $file = -1 then
FileClose ( $file )
$var = RegRead( $key , $value)
if (@error <> 0) or ( $var <> $data ) then
IniWrite ( $path & $filelog_ , "Settings" , $filelog , "setat cu metoda .reg" )
IniWrite ( $path & $filelog , "Settings" , $filelog , "setat cu metoda .reg" )
FileDelete ( $path & $filelog_ )
FileClose ( $file )
FileDelete ( $path & $filelog_ )
; ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

the script is run via wpi.cmd , so is run every time WPI is running

the function verific_reg , check

if exist the log file (then the hotfix is already installed , so do not do anything else)


    check in registry if the hotfix is installed

    if yes create the log file

    if no, create another log file with same name but with a "_" in front of name like _kbXXXXXX.log

in my wpi first entry with INSTALL check after kbXXXXXX.log

the second entry with UNinstall check after _kbXXXXXX.log , and the second command line is like

cmd1[pn]=['regedit /s %cdrom%\\Windows\\XP\\XP_UpDates\\SP2_UpDates\\873374.reg']

cmd2[pn]=['rename %windir%\\Debug\\_KB873374.log KB873374.log']

in case of malicious hotfix i added the version number "v110" to the log name

work here . the script must be changed every new version of malicious

to keep unchanged the .exe file ,

probably it need to make 2 parameters to the command line (version of malicious+reg_key_malicious)

i choose the folder %windir\debug to store the two log files , can be anyware

no matter what is writed inside of theese two log files , the script check if they exist only

the line in front with WinClose ( "My Computer" )

is not related with the script function . just i close my computer windows after i start WPI from this window.

You can also use the condition statement to check for existence:


to check for non-existence:



cond[pn]=[!WshShell.regRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\KB873339\DisplayName")==Windows XP Hotfix - KB873339]

gcond[] above with WshShell.regRead generate here an error in vmWARE .

beside that , on my real computer works .

i will burn anyway and test it in the real world with a fresh install .

till then any ideea why this error ?

edit :

in real world , the things happend like in vmWARE .

error in uA mode and same error after installation when i launch WPI separately ...

probably in my computer is installed something who

make this gcond+WshShell.regRead to work properly .

any help ? :whistle: till then i will reverse to mine solution (above) ,

because i tried this with a single one hotfix and

if i will replace the gcond for 38 critical hotfixes + 5 optional hotfixes

then i will have 43 errors .
