Strange issue with my Scrip (install an app) Newbie trying to learn RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello 

    I have been asked to put together a script to uninstall an application and install another application (this will be deployed through SCCM). Pleased to report I managed to get the script working. 

    Basically, the script needs to stop two processers before uninstalling the application -

    Needs to temporary stop explorer (application needs to remove a folder from the user's library)

    We then uninstall the application, then installs the new application 

    This all works (amazingly) 

    the issue I have is when I restart explorer.exe - I get a command prompt called explorer.exe 

    I have checked my Shell environment and it points to explorer (in the registry) 

    Same on any computer I run the script on 

    @echo off
    set Installpath=%~dp0
    tasklist|find "BoxSync.exe"
    goto found
    taskkill /f /im BoxSync.exe
    goto BoxMonitor
    tasklist|find "BoxSyncMonitor.exe"
    goto found
    taskkill /f /im BoxSyncMonitor.exe
    goto explorer
    taskkill /F /IM "explorer.exe"
    MsiExec.exe /X{CD5CB679-159B-4E4C-B847-B29B492D106E} /quiet
    %Installpath%BoxSyncSetup.exe /uninstall /quiet
    del C:\Users\%userProfile%\Box Sync
    %Box-x64.msi /quiet
    start "explorer.exe"
    start "BOX.exe"
