Firefox crashes on WinSetState in Win XP

Recommended Posts


Firefox crashes on WinSetState("My Page - Mozilla Firefox","",@MAXIMISE)

Operating System - Win XP

Written in - Ruby 1.8.6 using the win32ole api that uses the AutoIt .dll


I seeing some strange behaviour from WinSetState when called appears to crash or close firefox.

Any comments?



#Create a firefox window and navigate to My Page

ai = WIN32OLE.new("AutoItX3.Control")

ai.WinActivate("My Page - Mozilla Firefox")

sleep 1

ai.WinSetState("My Page - Mozilla Firefox","",@SW_MAXIMIZE)

And what happens if you just do that in VBScript?

I'm thinking this is more about environment than AutoIt.
