Scripting Question

Launching cscript from Kace Script causes C:\windows\system32 to open

10/29/2014 2401 views
I have an Online Kscript built that contains the following:

On Success:

1.  Launch "C:\Windows\System32\cscript.exe" with params "C:\ProgramData\Dell\Kace\kbots_cache\packages\443\RemoveSEP.vbs"

When I run the script all it does on the targer computer is open C:\windows\system32.  Kace reports that the script ran successfully.

I have tried using the Kace variables and I get the same results.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Thanks for responding SMal.tmcc. That was successful in stopping system32 from opening by the target PC still did not run the VBS script.

    What is odd is that I can put the same command in a command line and the script runs perfect. Not so much if the script is in Kace. I'm still trying to find out what I am doing wrong.
  • Try this



    /C C:\windows\system32\cscript.exe "$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\RemoveSEP.vbs"
