setting path and adding a user

Recommended Posts

maybe someone can look at my code and see if they can spot a problem

this is an excerpt from my RunOnceEX file

REG ADD %KEY%\015 /VE /D "Updating Path" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\015 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Chpth.cmd" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\035 /VE /D "Add a User" /f
REG ADD %KEY%\035 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\user.cmd" /f

and the correspondng cmd files



Add user

@echo off
perl user.plx

and finally the perl code

use warnings;
use strict;

print "Please enter a username: ";
my $name = <STDIN>;
chomp $name;

print "Please enter a password: ";
my $password = <STDIN>;
chomp $password;
print "\n";

print "Thank You\n";

system "net user $name $password /add";
system "net localgroup Administrators $name /add";
system "net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited";

I have a feeling these the path and add user problem lies in the fact that if the path doesn't work neither will the add user (since it needs to know where perl is). Because I can run it (the perl file) locally and it works.

Thanks for taking the time to look at this.

thank you. Is pathman already there or is there someplace I can download it?
You got to download it. Start with clicking on pathman in my previous post :)

Added. I think it's packed in MSI, just install the MSI and you'll find pathman in system32. Drop pathman.exe into your OEM folders and enjoy :)
