Recommended Posts

When running ie au3 in Windows IE7 getting a certificate error:navigation blocked page. Script ran fine on IE 6. Can be replicated on the following public website: https://savannah.gnu.org/ .

Example script:

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate ("https://savannah.gnu.org/", 0, 1, 0)

$sText = _IEBodyReadText ($oIE)

MsgBox(0, "Body Text", $sText)

Debug output:

>"C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\AutoIt3Wrapper.exe" /run /prod /ErrorStdOut /in "C:\Documents and Settings\newuser\My Documents\testcmshtml.au3" /autoit3dir "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3" /UserParams

I have tried adding the site to the trusted sites and installing the cert is not an option. Any other ideas as to how to get past this Windows IE7 "feature"?

Then you wait for the certification error to appear and then click the link "continue to the page" using IE functions.

This is the html code that you need to consider. Keep in mind that the error might not always appear if you dont close the browser so you need to check if the cert. error appears or not.

You can allow the script to continue and trap the error yourself. Please see _IEErrorHandlerRegister()

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?
