RE: cscript errors out from daemon


I don't see the problem on my w2k system :

~$ssh dan@localhost
You are successfully logged in to this server!!!
Microsoft (R) Windows Script Host Version 5.6
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation 1996-2001. All rights reserved.

Usage: CScript scriptname.extension [option...] [arguments...]


As to debugging your problem, I suggest:

1) login via telnet/ssh and type:
which cscript
This is WINNT/system32/cscript on my system.
2) try getting a dump of the crashed CSCRIPT. Run/Install Dr Watson as
default debugger, and instruct it to create a dumpfile:
c:\> drwtsn32 -i

Send me a zipped version of the dump file, or try  to debug it yourself
using windbg from the free Microsoft "Debugging Tools for Windows"

Subject: cscript errors out from daemon

cygwin              1.3.12-2

(See attached file: cygcheck.out)

I am trying to run a bash script than in turn calls a vbscript from cron
using cscript.exe. I get a dialog box displaying an error about cscript not
being able to initialize. Application popup: cscript.exe - Application
Error : The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click
on OK to terminate the application.

I have also noticed that I cannot run cscript after logging in via telnet
or ssh. I am assuming that cygwin has a problem of running cscript from
within a daemon?

Is there any solution to be able to run cscript from cron, ssh, telnet,

Thank you,
Brandon Saxe
