CreateProcessWithLogonW() Error 1326 When Starting VBS-File

Hi there

I need to execute a VB-Script as a specific User. I use the RunAsUser()-function which you can find here.

I execute it as following:

RunAsUser "user", "password", "mydomain", "\chsfile01Projects_Test\__ScriptsProject_NewCustomer.vbs", ""

When executing this code, i get "CreateProcessWithLogonW() failed with error 1326". When i use an EXE-File instead of a VBS it works fine.

What can I do?

Thanks in advance,

ReSolved - 'Can't Find File DAO350.dll' Error Comes When Open Vb6 Project Or Starting Vb6
Hai ,

I strucked with the problem , it occurs when i try to start the VB or Open the project, i am getting the following error.

Quote:Can't find file DAO350.dll

I don't have any application to run which uses DAO, can any one help me regarding this thank you.

The file DAO350.DLL is located in the following directory

Quote:C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedDAODAO350.DLL

i tried by registering it manually by giving the below command in the Run box

Code:regsvr32 LoadLibrary("C:Program")failed - The specified module could not be found.'

Yesterday i UnInstalled a Software from my system. I think it removes the DAO350.DLL file, but the removed software is not related to VB6. If u have a application which uses DAO350.DLL, kindly post here, hope running the application can register the DLL properly and after the VB6 could start without the error.

Can any one please help me

Starting To Pull Hair Out. On Error Ignore Error Control. Help!
Ok i posted about this yesterday and tryed a few things but it still did not work for me.

A runtime popup error occures when the first "If Dir" executes. But only if I do not have access to the share. Even though the "on error" code is there. I have tryed using a goto and label also but that doesn't work either. I have the settings on the general tab set to "Break on unhandled errors"

On Error Resume Next
If Dir("\" & strServerName & "c$
avplay.exe") <> "" Then
If Dir("\" & strServerName & "c$
avplay.exe") <> "" Then
Text = "Installed"
Text = "Not Installed"
End If
Text = "Not Installed"
End If

CreateProcessWithLogonW API
Platform: XP/Vista
Language: Visual Basic 6

Can anyone tell me how to use the CreateProcessWithLogonW API?

I'm an administrator trying to make certain programs run at logon with administration privileges.

I've tried using the group policy editor but the programs still run with user privileges.

The DOS runas command requires a password to be inputted each time which can be annoying.

Any help please?

I need to run programs on other machines 'as' someone else. I am using the CreateProcessWithLogonW API but can not get the syntax correct. Has anybody else succesfully used this? All my machines are Win2k.

As some of you may be aware, it seems as though you can't use the CreateProcessWithLogonW API with Windows XP SP2. What I need to do is run a software installation package as an administrator user from an ordinary user account.

Error In Starting Up Excel 2003 Because Of Add-In?

normally i'm using Office XP, and now i'm using Office 2003. If i'm starting up Excel, this error message comes :
"Cannot open Microsoft Excel Add-In for editing. Please edit the source document instead."

If i deactivate my add-in then this error message doesn't show up in starting up excel. Sometimes after rebooting makes excel no error message too..

In previous versions of Excel (2000 and XP) there are no error messages in starting up Excel.

Is this a bug in Excel 2003?

Starting My App From A Text File
I have developed a application that parses an XML file. That part works well. I have figured it out with the registry creating a new file extension that will start my program, but it won't parse the file and display the information. I was wondering how I could open my new file type into my program and have it automatically parse the file and display the information.

I was thinking that maybe there was a parameter, but I don't know what it is.

Starting An Application From A File
My question is: How do I get my application to start by double clicking on a
file. I have made my application to save files with a specific extension.
I associated those files to my application through the standard routine of
windows (double clicking, a pop up menu asks me what application I want to
start this file with etc.). However, if I click on a file, it does start
the application but I do not see the contents of the file. Instead, I need
to go to the "File, Open" menu and re-open the file to get all the data. It
is like clicking on a word document and starting MS Word but it is all
Could someone please let me know what I need to add to my application to
read the existing files when I double click them so that I don't need to use
the File-Open menu?
Thank you in advance for the help.

Starting A File In A Folder That Has Spaces In The Name
Hi there,

I am using VB to write to a CSV file and then open it in Excel once it has finished writing. The code I have used is below:

Call FindExcel.GetExcelLocation

Shell ExcelLocation & " " & App.Path & "Plant.csv", vbMaximizedFocus

This works fine if the Directory structure for App.Path doesn't have any spaces in the name.

When I run it from "c:plant & equipment" excel cannot find the files because it looks for c:plant.xls

If the location of the file including the directory structure has double quotes around it excel opens it OK, but I can't figure out how to get double quotes around App.path + my file name.

Could someone shed some light on how this can be done.

Starting My Program By Double Clicking A Text File
i have been using system.environment.commandline to determine if my program was started by double clicking a file with an extension .xxx or if my program's .exe file was opened. if the program was started by the .xxx file then the commandline value would have a .xxx extension.

the problem is when i use xp everything works well, but when i try to install it on a 2000 server machine the commandline is always the same, the .exe location.

i have tried using the system.environment.currentdirectory but it doesn't return the exact file path.

any suggestions....

HELP: "Out Of Memory" Error (and More) When Starting Visual Basic 6.0
Let me first start by saying that I am using WinXP and have been working with Visual Basic 6.0 for a few weeks now without any problems. Everytime I am done with it, I save the project and close the Visual Basic 6.0 window.

I wanted to work on my project last night, so I double-clicked on my desktop icon for Visual Basic V6.0 to open it up which I always did before) but this time I get the following errors (shown in order as they come up):

Error 1) Out of Memory : Continue? (I click YES button)
Error 2) Object Variable or With Block Variable Not Set: Continue? (I click YES button)
Error 3) Object Variable or With Block Variable Not Set: Continue? (I click YES button)
Error 4) Object Variable or With Block Variable Not Set: Continue? (I click YES button)
Error 5) Automation Error Catastrophic Failure (I click OK button)
Error 6) Object Variable or With Block Variable Not Set: Continue? (I click YES button)

After error (6), the Visual Basic 6.0 window does come up and I can open my project, edit the project, click RUN to test/debug my project and save my project.

Can someone please tell me what in the world is going on? Why do I have these errors all of sudden on opening up the application and what should I do to correct the problems?

Also, there were two other things I noticed:

- I tried to access the MSDN Library for Visual Basic 6.0 (via the Help menu) but discovered that the help library has disappeared. The other MSDN libraries (Visual C++ , etc..) were still there, but the Visual Basic 6.0 one was gone. A window gets displayed telling me to reinstall the library from disc

- When I first started my project, I added some controls via the Components menu option. Two of these controls(RICHTX32.OCX and COMDLG32.OCX) I added but never used yet. I decided to use a richTextBox last night and realized that the richTextBox icon in the control window (or is it called the component window), as well as the Common Dialog icon, were changed to a plain white folder icon. Usually these icons would be seen as image icons. Anyway, I tried to drag a richTextBox in the Form and was told that it could not found (or something like that).

Get A Handle To A Windows File Editor When Starting Program From Within Another Program
I am trying to make a program that starts another program, and using sendkeyes to control what the new program is going to do and then close it. Basically the new program is going to open a db and store some data in a notepad file from the db.
I know how to start another program from within a program using shell, but

1) I do not want the new program to fill the screen like it does now. I know hat you can start the program and minimize it so the program icon shows at the bottom of the screen on the same line as the start button. But I would prefer the new program to not show. Can anyone help me with this ?

2) At one point in the process when using sendkeyes, the new program automatically opens/fetches a Windows list (where you can specify the name of the file and where it is going to be stored on your computer).
I need to find a way to get a grip on that windows list from my own program, so I can send a standard file name to it.
How can I do that?

Package And Deployment : Error 75 : Path/file Access Error
I am trying to build a setup package for a VB 6 project. I get a "Unexpected error 75:Path/file access error" and

I tried to remove all references but the error still persists. Could somebody please let me know what could be the possible solution to this.

RunTime Error 75: Path/File Access Error.
Hi all,

This is blowing my mind!

I have the following piece of code which I have been testing:-

file_name = "C:Documents and SettingsHomeDesktopTest1.xls"
save_to = "D:Test1_(" & Format(Now, "dd-mmm-yyyy") & " " & Format(Now, "hh_mm_ss") & ") " & ".xls"

FileCopy file_name, save_to
I have run the code 14 times (on separate cd's) and it's copied the file to the cd drive ("D:") every single time.

All of a sudden, I am getting a RunTime Error 75: Path/File access error . Why?

If I manually copy and paste to the D drive it works. I use FileCopy, it returns an error. I change the path from D to C, it works. I have searched millions of sites and cannot find an answer.

Thanks in advance,

RunTime Error :75 Path/file Access Error
the error message "RunTime error :75 path/file access error" appear in my application , the error raised not for all clients( all win2000/winXP ),the clients that have the user name that contains dot character( eg Moh.issam) have this error, but the users that hav nor contain dot character (eg Moh ) have not the error .

the error occured when i open the connection.


Run Time Error: 75 - Path/File Access Error

I have packaged a program with the Deployment Wizard, and have installed the program on my computer for testing. However when I go to run my app error 75 - Path/File access error pops up. Is it possible that the wizard has packaged a .ocx file or something that is used by some other application in windows 98? Or could it be something in my code? Thanks

Run-time Error 75 (path/file Access Error)
I am using a common dialog to search for a file, but when I click on Cancel and there is no filename in the filename field of the common dialog, I get the error on the highlighted line:



Run-time error '75':
Path/File access error.

VB Code:
Private Sub cmdImportDatabaseConnectionString_Click()    With cdlgImportDatabaseFile        .CancelError = False        .DialogTitle = "Import Database Connection Settings"        .Filter = "Database File (*.dbs)|*.dbs"        .ShowOpen        m_strFileName = .FileName    End With        [hl]FileCopy m_strFileName, App.Path & "" & m_strFileName & ".dbs"[/hl]End Sub

Run-time Error '75': Path/file Access Error
So I tried to create a program that created a folder in the Windows directory and then copied a certain file to that newly created directory. I have accomplished this, oddly, on my computer only. When I send the program to others to use they receive this error:

[run-time error '75'....path/file access error]

Anybody seem to know the problem?

I will paste partial code if needed.
