_IECreate requirements?

Recommended Posts

grasshopper3

I am using _IECreate()... on some computers it works and on some it doesn't. What are the requirements for it to work. I use Firefox as default browser on both test computers, but on one _IECreate works and on one it doesn't. Does it work with all versions of IE?

_IECreate sets @error and @extended (according to the help file). What values do you get? Do you get any (COM) error messages?

The only time I've ever seen a problem (unless something has been done to specifically disable IE) is when there is a zombie iexplore.exe process running on your system. Kill all iexplore.exe processes (or logout or reboot) and try again.

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?

IE is installed on both computers, I can browse with no problems. I have the latest versions of IE on both computers with default settings. I am not at my computer to post the errors, but I will do that first chance I get.
