Out of Office Script not working on 64bit server

Postby dgradwell » Sat Jan 08, 2011 7:53 pm

Hi there everyone,

I have been using Mail Enable for about a year now (excellent product), however, I have now come to upgrade my webserver and my supplier has given me a 64 bit installation on Windows Server 2008 R2.

I have migrated everything across and the new version of Mail Enable 5.02 is great and works fine but the OoO script which you can download does not work. Has anyone else had this issue?

Your help is greatly appreciated

That script is written by a third party and it seems to be a Windows Script file.
Windows script has limitations and changes on 64 bit windows. You should first ensure that a basic MsgBox style windows script works on your server. Eg: a sample WSF file that simply displays a message box.

This blog explains some possible workarounds:

We have the same issue, and now all the server are on 64bit (Windows 2008 Server R2 is only 64bit)

Can you give a bit to solve this problem?

Hi!

I had the same problem, but I finally managed to solve it! :)
You have to start the 32-bit-version of cscript.

So in the delivery event you have to write instead of

Code: Select all

cscript.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\Mail Servers\Mail Enable\Abwesenheitsnotiz\out-of-office.wsf"


the following:

Code: Select all

C:\windows\syswow64\cscript.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\Mail Servers\Mail Enable\Abwesenheitsnotiz\out-of-office.wsf"


It works like a charm for me! :)
Windows Server 2008 64bit
MailEnable Standard 6.5
Plesk 11


Notes:
You have to download Version 0.1.8 from the developers site (http://mailenable.exhalus.net/out-of-office/out-of-office.zip) f
On the mailenable website there is currently an old version. (0.1.6)
