Problem with GUI Driver Installation

Recommended Posts



I'll appreciate if somebody know anything about this problem (i'm a french people sorry if my english is not well) :

I want to automate a driver installation ( for a printer) from a .exe

When the driver installation is launched, i want to track changes on the installation window (button display, bitmap changes in order to verify every result...).

But the problem is that WinWait/Active won't work with it because the window is the same until the installation finishes.

There is unfortunately no COM interface available to capture events for this driver.

Is there any other way to do this via AutoIT?

You can check the buttons and text areas out with AU3Info.exe, the AutoIt Window Info Tool, to see if they can be checked for text, enabled status, etc.

BTW, there is a very active native French AutoIt site: AutoIt Français: Communauté Francophone AutoIt They even have an anti software patents banner on their home page!
