IE.au3

4 posts in this topic

I am trying to load up a script that goes to a flash application on 64 bit Vista.

IE8 64 bit does not support flash 10 and so the application does not load. To fix this problem I was hoping to change IE.au3 to load up the 32 bit version of IE instead of the 64-bit version but after a while I gave and came here to seek advice.

Can you even have the 32-bit and 64-bit versions both installed at the same time? :)

I wouldn't have thought so, but never tried. If so (big IF), then all you have to do is launch the other one with Run() and _IEAttach() for $oIE. After that it should be fine.

Apparently you can, but there appears to be no way directly through COM.

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
WshShell.Run("%windir%\SysWOW64\wscript.exe " & Chr(34) & "C:\Program Files (x86)\IE_InternetExplorer.Application.vbs" & Chr(34))

You should be able to adapt. You should be able to Run or ShellExecute the script, then _IEAttach to it and use it

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

I think you should just compile / run AutoIt in 32bit mode :)
