Preferred Solution: unable to run my selenium scripts through .bat file

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Using the assoc and ftype commands, I was always been able to associate certain extensions/filetypes with certain Batch scripts. But, this didn't appear to be be working in Windows 10.

The following commands (run in a Admin command prompt) work fine in Windows 8.1 but not Windows 10:

assoc .foo=Foobar
ftype Foobar=C:\WINDOWS\system32\foo.bat %1
echo @echo off > foo.bat
echo echo The filename is %1>> foo.bat
echo hi > foo.foo

The result should be the output:

The filename is C:\WINDOWS\system32\foo.foo

Windows 10 appears to do nothing, but then I thought of changing the foo.bat script to redirect to a log file, so foo.bat now looks like this:

@echo off
echo The filename is %1 > foo.log

When running foo.foo, foo.log is created, so we know that the file association (.foo files associated to foo.bat) is working and foo.bat is running. It's just that there's no output in the DOS window.

Also, adding a "pause" command at the end of foo.bat does NOT pause at all, so this shows that input and output are both broken/redirected.

What could be causing this input/output redirection? Remember, it only happens when running the foo.foo file directly. If you run "foo.bat foo.foo", it's fine.


A:Unable to associate extensions/file types with BAT scripts

Looks like Microsoft changed the polarity of a setting in the registry for Windows 10, and there's a simple fix for it.


Set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\InheritConsoleHandles to 0.

Unsuprisingly when I try to run CGI sites or the site that runs it, the scripts won't run and I am with a page that doesn't have it. However, anything that I run in /cgi-bin results in an internal server error (500), including html, cgi, and even txt. Anything I could do that I might have forgotten?

PS: Just to make sure, the CGI directory for this website could be mainwebsite_cgi or does it have to be specifically cgi-bin?

The Uploading type was ASCII and I already CMOD the CGI to 755

A:Unable to run CGI scripts

Not all hosts support CGI. Check if they do .PHP instead.

I just bought a new Vista Home Premium 64 bit from HP. I have the latest Java downloaded and installed. I frequent the National Weather Service website for weather updates. This website uses Java to display storm movements. When I get to this page it says it requires an add on but when I click the tab I get a
"Windows has blocked this software because it can not verify the publisher."

I used this same web site for the previous 2 years with my last Vista computer with no problems.

Where can I turn off this block and download the software necessary to make this run again. Details please.

I have a file that contains 'scripts' and I am not sure what this file is or what it is for. It is filled with 1468 websites. Is this a form of cookies?
The file name is: C:\Program Files\Common Files\GMT\Scripts

Also, Should I go through and delete my cookies periodically. I have been doing it and wonder if I should be.

Thanks for any responses!

A:GMT/Scripts File

Hiya and welcome

Lets take a look at that file. Rightclick on it and choose Properties. What is the extension? Also, what OS are you using?

As to the cookies, if you have a load, yes you can, but all I delete are the spyware ones.

If you want to know which are spyware, go here and download AddAware www.lavasoftusa.com
Install and run, ensuring Deep Registry Scanning is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or new.net If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

Whilst you're there, download and install RefUpdate to get the latest updates.

Hi all,

I'm getting issue in starting selenium. Actually my thread class has selenium.start() in run() method. So when I'm using below lines of code,

//some another class
class someclass{

ScrapeThread nidleThread = new ScrapeThread("nidleThread");
Thread scraper = new Thread(niidleThread);

as thread.start() method internally calls run() method, so in run() method of thread class only first two three lines of code are getting executed and when it executes comes to selenium.start() and executes, then selenium is giving issue in starting means I can see only two commands getting executed in command history of selenium remote and then getting struck there.

But when i m using below code and directly calling the run() method of my thread class

//some another class
class someclass{
ScrapeThread nidleThread = new ScrapeThread("nidleThread");
here it's working properly and I'm getting proper output as I want.

What could be the issue in starting selenium when I'm executing the thread in normal way i.e. by calling scrapper.start() method?

//in thread class
selenium = new DefaultSelenium(config.getHost(), Integer.parseInt(config.getPort()), config.getBrowser(), config.getUrl());
Thanks in advance

Not sure if this question belong in this part of the forum.
So recently our company has just installed a mandatory update that broke Internet Explorer in many ways and Selenium WebDriver is one of them. For more info, I'm using Selenium in C# and we are NOT allowed to roll back any mandatory update (only adjust parts
of GPL but we have to have compelling evidence). The last time we installed any update was on 04/22/2019, Last Windows 10 Security update that we got was KB4493478 and KB4493441)
So after the update happens, Selenium Sendkeys runs extremely slow on the website (1 letter per 1-2 seconds). Before that, we ran the same exact code on the same exact website and it ran fine. I tried looking up some additional help but to no avail at this
point. Any idea may help!
Thanks a lot!

I had a folder on my Desktop that just won't delete. I tried deleting it and moving it to another location. It deleted everything within the folder, yet the folder still remained.

I've been having the problem of my Desktop not updating when files/folders are deleted, so I have to manually refresh after a delete to show it gone. Well, the folder decided to stick around. I tried Renaming, Deleting, changing Folder Permissions, Reboot of the Computer.....Nothing seems to help.

If I try to open the folder, I get a "Location is Not Available" along with the "Access Is Denied" error. Going to Properties>Security prompts me that I don't have permission to view or edit permission settings. Under Advanced says the same thing and for Owner it says "Unable to Display Current Owner."

During a TrendMicro virus scan, it found an archive that was infected. A quick check of the archive (Which I'd grabbed months before, but never ran) showed it was actually an application, so I went to shift+del the file (No sense dumping a virus into the recycle bin), and poof it's gone.

Then I went to delete the folder it was in, but... it wouldn't let me. Told me I didn't have the permissions to do so. A quick check of the folder's contents revealed the virus/app was back, as if it had never been deleted.

If I try doing a regular delete, it tells me Destination Folder Access Denied.

So I started poking around the file's security properties.
"Unable to display current owner."

I tried changing the owner, but it wouldn't let me do that.
I downloaded Unlocker, right-clicked on the file and unlocked it, but nothing seemed to happen, and same results when I try to delete it.

I'm running Vista 32-bit, not connected to a local network (Just one computer), and I'd really like to delete this virus/app off my machine. TrendMicro was unable to get rid of it, and I can't seem to get rid of it either.

A:Solved: Cannot delete file / No Permissions - Unable to display current owner of file

Ha, nevermind. Unlocker just took an enormous amount of time in actually starting up, and turns out the virus scanner had a process linked to the file. So, problem solved. Nothing to see here.

i've got a client's computer with a W32/Brontok-CJ infection

below is the HJT log file b4 i cleaned it with HJT after stopping all the worm process, but as i thought that the F2 Reg entry is created by the worm, i checked those as well, and thinking it's an everyday worm, i didn't make backups.. (idiot thing that i'll never do again...)

afterwards, whenever i tried to run exe file (say notepad or regedit) it opened open with box instead, but surely if i try to open a text file, windows successfully load notepad in working order as if nothing had happened, that goes with html and various other software as well(i didn't try everything, but i assume all other file association is still intact, except for exe of coz)
i'm able to run explorer and iexplore, so windows essentials is not affected i suppose...

is it really the F2 that causes exe assc to fail, since it's shell=explorer.exe

Hi I really need help,

recently I created an online Radio that streams from my Ip code, but I've noticed that everytime I shutdown my pc the Ip changes and I have to re-set all the program back.

So I was wandering if I could create a static Ip just like companies and ISP servers, so I could stream my music without worrying of updating the Ip

I know a friend that has a similiar radio and he doesn't have to change his Ip everytime... he told me though it was a secret, but he gave me a clue, he said he created a script that went to www.whatsmyip.com and copied the ip everytime someone played the radio...

so please could anyone give me some tips or give me a script?

If i download updates/patches (ie... WIndows updates) and put them on one place on the network. Is there a way to write a log in script that automaticallys these updates on users machines when they log onto their computer? help....


A:log in scripts or other....

It all depends on how your nework is configured (Domain or Workgroup) and how the updates need to be installed.

If you have a Domain, and the users are logging into the domain, you can put it in their login script.

If you have a Workgroup it is much more difficult to push these down if steps haven't been taken ahead of time. One way is to have a local batch file in the startup folder that calls another one that is on a central server. This way you can just edit the one on the server.

As far as what to put in the batch file, that would depend on each update and if it can be done that way. If it is just an executable, you could just list them one at a time on each line.

Q: Scripts

Ok i have a logon script that i created using logon script creator as a .vbs and then converted it to a .cmd script but when i try to execute it it does not work.

It says that it has executed on the client when i log onto it but it does not do what it is suppose to do and i can not figure out where i am going wrong. The script is suppose to add a specific printer and then map a drive.

Hi, i came across a site with tons of useful scripts for XP that were for everything and anything under the sun...i mean everything from basic home user stuff, all the way up to domain administrator stuff.

Sadly, i didnt bookmark it...left my house for 15 min only to come back home and have my messing around on the computer and i totally forgot about it. Well the was some 15 + days ago and i have no trace of the site anywhere on my computer / firefox temp or history files.

Anyways, the best i could come up with is kellys corner scripts, but the site im talking about had way more scripts, which details of its actions next to it.

Anyone got any ideas or suggestions??

Thanks for looking.

I remember the scripts as .vbs and .reg scripts but am not entirely certain about it..i would think most of them were from the looks of it...but i dont know that much about this stuff.

Q: Scripts


Does anyone out there know a good beginners book on writing scripts? At some places they have a script that automaticall maps drives to shared directories on servers. I would like how to do this. Or write a script that will create 40 folders and 2 subfloders each. I am an absolute beginner when it comes to doing this and dont know if you do this with java or other languages. Let me know if anyone has an idea on a absolute beginners book..



Funny you have mention this I have a script that just that mapped drives on networks. For mapped printers you can use a program from MS called Print Mapper saves network printers to cab file.

If you want to learn how to do scripts you can search on google and there are plenty of free sites on the subject with scripts you can use.

The script can be run on USB jump or CD. When you run on CD it acts differently it will prompt you where to save the info.

The way that script works is this...

Say you're at xyz company domain
You're at user x pc
User x has 6 or more mapped network drives
For you to copy them manually just by dragging to your USB zip drive.
With Get Drive
It will Get all network drives and then create x_drive.bat What you do with
this bat is run on it an the next new system you're build for the x user.

It also uses


NET USE z: \\xyz\shared\data
NET USE o: \\xyz\shared\data\shared
NET USE p: \\xyz\shared\data\shared\my_notes

net use /persistent:yes

I rather do this manually as it is easy to restore the mapped drives as you see in above example..

Novell mapped drives example below:


NET USE g: \\e-fin1\data\finprgs
NET USE o: \\e-fin1\data
NET USE s: \\phxapp013essb\ESSBDataShare
net use /persistent:yes

In MY Computer
Those network drives can be copied to a folder if you want to do it manually. The script program will do it, but might not catch all... Read more

I am trying to install Wordpress, and, having placed the relevant PHP files within C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wordpress, and, installed FastCGI, I have a difficulty browsing to, because the default browser behaviour seems to be to prompt me to download the php files rather than executing the .php scripts.

I have installed FastCGI that seems to be a safe requirement for PHP.

I am running WinXP SP3, and, there are other issues. mySQL installer cannot create the Windows Service (see screenshot.

I was wondering if there are any scripts that can make a page so that its only accessible from a link on on a specified page. What I want is that if there was a link to it from a different page or if someone typed it in the location bar then that person wouldn't be able to view it. I want it only accessible from one page, where that person would have to type in a password to view it, the password should be in the url when linking to it.

A:Looking for scripts

It depends on your platform.

I often use ASP for this type of thing. Referencing the HTTP_referrer, you could do something like this.

WhereFrom = request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER")
If WhereFrom = "http//www.mysite.com/origin.asp" THEN
Welcome to this page!
Your are NOT authorized to view this page!
End IF

Q: Scripts

Hello all, I am new to the IT industry. Thanks in advance for your help!

I am trying to learn about script writing, more than likely using VBScript. It will tremendously help me in my new job. I am trying to figure out how to write a script that will open delprof.exe when a user logs off.

I do not know where to start. Any recommendations, books, sites or other sources that I could reference to help me understand how to generate, test and apply scripts?

Thank you all for your help.



I would do it with a Group Policy.

Q: Scripts

Once in a while when I am trying to register or otherwise give information to a website for updates or similar functions, I get an error message about a scripti error which also asks if I want to continue using scripts. What is this and what is the correct answer and is there something that I should do to avoid this error in the future.




Web pages contain ActiveX and Java scripts (programs). So you are seeing that some web pages contain program errors. You can Disable Script Debugging so you don't see the warning. Open IE select Tools, Internet Options, Advanced tab, and scroll down and check the option.
