AutoIt running very slowly

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

I just switched my AutoIt scripts from my 4 year old laptop to a 6 year old Desktop. The laptop is a Intel Core Duo 1.6ghz Dell with 1 gig of RAM. The desktop is a single core 3.4ghz Pentium 4 with 1 gig of RAM. They're both running Windows XP. The problem is, the desktop runs very, very slowly. For instance, this:

#include <FF.au3>

$URLfile = FileOpen("ColumbiaURLS2.txt", 0)

$datefile = FileOpen("Columbiadates.txt", 0)

$docketfile = FileOpen("Columbiadockets.txt", 0)

$titlefile = FileOpen("Columbiatitles.txt", 0)

$URL = ""

$date = ""

$docket = ""

$filename = ""

$title = ""

AutoItSetOption ("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)


Sleep (300)

MouseClick("left", 1070, 250, 1, 1)







If NOT _FFOpenURL ("", True) Then

MsgBox ( 64, "" , "Cannot Open Comparative Law Project, Columbia Page")



...takes about 20 seconds on the laptop, and well over 5 minutes on the desktop. It opens up firefox readily enough, but then it just hangs. The text files are only 80kb max. I tried pulling back to the version on my laptop, the latest stable, and the latest beta. Nothing doing. Any ideas about what's going on?

PS) I attached the whole file.
