AutoitExe not working on Win 10
I am having a bit of trouble and was wondering if anyone may have a workaround for my issue. I made a script that would automatically install a piece of software each night on a Windows 7 Box. Now I have been instructed to do the same with a Windows 10 box since the application is now being tested on Windows 10.
The way I did the win7 installation was that I made a script and then made an executable that I call with a batch file along with the Installer. So the process is
AutoitMainFile calls batch file, batch file opens Installer, and the automatedinstaller.exe The automatedinstlaller waits 10-20 seconds to make sure the Installer has been fully loaded.
When I try to do the same both get loaded but the automatedinstallation.exe does not send commands to the installer. The code does work and nothing from the program we are wanting to install has changed as our Windows 7 runs every night no problem.
Do I need to make a new automatedinstall script for windows 10?
Any advice is appreciated
How to restrict inputboxes to specific characters only?
I'm having trouble in making an input box where I can limit the characters that can be inputted. Anybody have an idea how this can be done in Auto IT?
Specifically I would like to create an input field where the user would enter a MAC address. What I would like to do is to limit the characters that can be inputted to only HEX values (A-F and 0-9 as well as the - character). This is so that the user cannot input invalid characters. The program is going to be used by very non-technical people, so the idea is to remove as many chances for errors that we can think of. I would also prefer to limit the field to only 17 characters, so that there is only enough space to enter the MAC address with the - character as the separator.
Thank you all in advance for any suggestions!
Recognizing when focus leaves the input field?
i am working on a translation app. There are a couple of regular input fields with text that the user is supposed to change to a new language.
I want to change the color of the input field as soon as the user leaves the input field. Is there a way to do that?
I know how to do this with a button, but i don't know how i can work with focus. Has any of you done something like this before?
How to login to the machine remotely
I have enabled admin sharing in the remote machine so that I can copy files to the remote machine use PSEXEC to execute our application remotely.
Now, if the machine is poweredoff we need to poweriton. So I checked whether the remote machine, it is of both VirtualBox or VMWare one. For VirtualBox or VMware, I have found command line utities to poweron. But to autologon by skipping the login screen.Can anyone suggest how to do the same.If it is a physical machine, then there is no need to poweron but autologon is required. I am trying for windows machines.Win 7 at present. For VirtualBox I checked below link with help og guestadditions but not working. http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch09.html#autologon The below procedure will save the password in that machine and it will logon automatically. http://www.howtogeek.com/112919/how-to-make-your-windows-8-computer-logon-automatically/ But it will give access to everyne.But my opinion is he should access only if have credentias.I mean through any commandline from another machine he should trigger logon also by passing credentials. Similarly this also http://www.cnet.com/how-to/automatically-log-in-to-your-windows-10-pc/ http://superuser.com/questions/28647/how-do-i-enable-automatic-logon-in-windows-7-when-im-on-a-domain http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows7/ht/auto-logon-windows-7.htm http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/windows7/windows7_auto_logon.htm https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/ee872306.aspx Please guide me how to proceed.
