I created an application to catch keyboard programmed keys. Some of the keys open URL's via ShellExecute and then they open in the default browser. The problem I am having is that when the browser is opened in this manner 3rd party applications such as Logitech Setpoint for Logitech mouse and keyboards and programs like auto password form filling stop working with the browser. In the mouse specific situation the Cruise Up and Cruise Down buttons, normally back and forward, do not work. If I open the browser manually via the browsers icon and then press the keyboard buttons to open the web page everything works normally. I have two questions: 1: Why does ShellExecute("http://www.autoitscript.com") when the browser is not open and then is launched, via the above line, cause third party apps to not be able to interface with the browser? 2: What is a better way to launch URL's if not via ShellExecute? The application is NOT using #RequireAdmin and is not 64bit.
Just a quick & simple question that I'm sure some can answer in a jiffy. I only use MSIE so I'm asking. In a script, if I use 'ShellExecute($myURL)' it will automatically launch my IE with the URL, which is the expected behaviour as IE is my default browser. Will this also work properly if Chrome or Firefox are installed and set as default browser ? Why don't I test it ? Last time I did Chrome (unawares as it was one of those installed along with another app), it took me several hours to get it off & cleaned from my system and Firefox has not behaved / played well with some of the tools I use related to other dev work. Thanks in Advance
