    I have to admit to knowing hardly anything about batch files, but i am currently tring to get a network audit program to run on every pc within the network using a batch file in a login script.

    I have been sucessful in getting the program to run. The trouble is that i cant take the batch file out of the login script until everyone in the network has logged on and auditted their pc.

    Any users that have completed the audit of their machine are fine until they log-off. Upon logging-on again the program reappears prompting them to them to audit their computer again, i expected this would happen.

    What i want to happen is the batch file to recognise that the audit program has been run and information (ie the audit files) has been sent to a particular directory or even simply that the batch file has been run previously on this computer and thus does not run again.

    Anyone who knows of a way of doing this please help!
    Thanks in advance

    Hiya and welcome

    Just bumping this up, as I'd like to see how this is done :)

    Also, which version of Windows are you running these on?

    I'm assuming, with what you posted, that each machine will have it's own audit file in a specific directory, correct? If that is true, you will need to grab environmental variables (ev) from that machine and use these ev in an "IF EXIST" statement, (Win9x) for example:


    \\Server\Netlogon\Putinenv L > nul
    \\Server\Netlogon\Winset Username=%Username% > nul
    \\Server\Netlogon\Winset Computername=%Computername% > nul

    IF EXIST \\Server\AuditDirectory\%COMPUTERNAME%.txt GOTO END


    This is basically saying, if you find this computername in the server's audit directory, the audit has been run and you can quit, otherwise run my audit commands. For 9x machines you will need two files (Putinenv & Winset) to grab the ev information. You won't need these for NT machines. Let me know if you want me to email them to you (very small files). Let us know some of the questions we've asked you and maybe post your code for us to look at...I'm feeling very nostalgic all of a sudden...

    Hope that helps,
