I have .exe compiled with, then I re-compiled it with and .exe stop at this point of code:

From the Changelog:

18th December, 2009 - v3.3.2.0

Added #764: Return Pid on ProcessWait() and handle on WinWait(), WinWaitActive, WinActivate(), WinActive(), WinMove() when successful.

So you need to look for a non-zero return rather than 1:

If WinWaitActive("Windowstitle","text text text text",3) <> 0 Then

should work for you. ;)

See the help file for winwaitactive function

Return Value

Success: Returns handle to the requested window.

Failure: Returns 0 if timeout occurred.

So your condition is bad.

Try :

If WinExists ("Windowstitle","text text text text") 
   WinActivate("Windowstitle","text text text text") 
   WinWaitActive("Windowstitle","text text text text",3)
