See helpfile for InputBox and FileWrite functions ! Posted Image

$value = InputBox ( "Title", "Enter IP.", "", "" )
$file = FileOpen ( @ScriptDir & "\IpSave.txt", 1 )
If $file = -1 Then Exit MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
FileWrite ( $file, $value )
FileClose ( $file )

Trying to create a automated script and am using the Send("!+n) to simulate the Alt-N key stroke needed.

It works sometimes and other times it stops .

Is this the best way to run a setup.exe and not have to touch the keyboard for the installation?

Thanks again..

also, is there a difference between _WinWaitActivate and just WinWaitActivate, I see them both used and dont really even know what WinWaitActivatre means..

_WinWaitActivate("my program to install - InstallShield Wizard","")

Send("!N")

_WinWaitActivate("my program to install - InstallShield Wizard","")

Send("!+t")

_WinWaitActivate is a function created by the Au3Recorder program when it's reading from a window that you're interacting with.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
