x64 and WindowFromPonit

3 posts in this topic

Can someone else please confirm there is a problem with WindowFromPoint running on x64 when compiled as x64. I'm getting the wrong window handles returned. Compiled as x86 the returns are correct. Just move the mouse around, as x86 you should get different window handles. As x64, not so much.

Next would be to determine if this is an AutoIt problem or a win32 API problem. Thanks in advance.

My test setup:

Win7 Ultimate x64

AutoIt 3.3.5.1

#AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=y

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Exit")

While 1
    $a = DllCall("user32.dll", "hwnd", "WindowFromPoint", "long", MouseGetPos(0), "long", MouseGetPos(1))
    $b = DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "GetWindowTextW", "hwnd", $a[0], "wstr", "", "int", 1024)
    ConsoleWrite($a[0] & " : " & $b[2] & @CRLF)
    Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Func _Exit()
    Exit
EndFunc

Thanks, that's the same fix I came up with when playing around a bit more (and the same theory I had).
