SERVICE PACK 3

6 posts in this topic

Good Morning Gents,

Can anyone tell me why when I run WINDOWS XP SERVICE PACK 3 manually, it shows me the progress bar as it is installing. Yet when I automate it with Autoit it does not. I have included the code below. Do I need to add something in my code to prevent it from happening? I cannot tell when it is done or where it is in the install without see the progress bar. Does using Autoit change it some how?

$WinTitle4 = "Software Update Installation Wizard"

Run("D:\automation\WindowsXP-SP3-x86.exe")
WinWait("Extracting Files")
WinWait($WinTitle4)
sleep(2000)
Controlsend($WinTitle4, "","", "{ENTER}")
Sleep(2000)
WinWait($WinTitle4, "license agreement")
ControlClick($WinTitle4, "", "[ID:11009]")
ControlClick($WinTitle4, "", "[ID:12324]")
ControlClick($WinTitle4, "", "[ID:12324]")
ControlClick($WinTitle4, "", "[ID:12325]")
Sleep(4000)

Don't even bother with Win*() functions. Use RunWait() and install it silently like a real man.
