specific exe won't let me script

Recommended Posts


I am new to Autoit, try to find out but may have missed the thing so please excuse if this is a common issue.

I have very simple script where I wish to click a control on a specific app called Player



ControlClick("Player", "" , 4037)

4037 being the control ID I wish to click on.

This was not working so to try additionnal things, I add


MouseClick("primary", 715, 499, 2)

the app "Player" is activated by the script but then the MouseMove don't even work

If I replace "Player" by an other app like Firefox I can see the Mouse moving, but not with this particular "Player" app, the mouse won't move.

Any idea??

Thanks for your help

Since your Player window is active, try using $var = WinGetTitle("[active]") to get the active window name and then passing $var to your ControlClick(). It may be that the title isn't what it seems. I once had a window title with a space at the end that caused me trouble.

Also try Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) to match any text within the title.

The script is activating the window so the title is right.

The speed of youe mouse "100" will take a week to move, try leaving that param out or change to 10

Your control click ID most likely changed with each time the app starts, try using its class.

Hi thanks for your feedback

It appears that my script was ok but failing with the 64 bits version

I tried the 32 bits and it was working properly with this "Player" application as well!
