Having trouble with winMove and some programs

5 posts in this topic

Hi I'm currently having some trouble with winMove as it dosen't seem to work with some programs.

One of these programs is Firefox. Lets say I wanted to move a firefox window to 0,0:

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
WinMove("Firefox", "", 0, 0)

This dosen't seem to work even though I can use the same code for other programs:

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
WinMove("SciTE", "", 0, 0)

Can anyone tell me how to fix it or show me an easy way to get around the problem. Right now I'm considering doing a loop where I match pixel until it finds the firefox logo. But I´m sure there must be an easier solution.

I also ran it some time ago without any trouble, but that was on WinXP and now I´m on Win7. What OS are you running?

Found the problem now. Some other hook-proces I was running was apparently preventing me from moving some of my programs.
