TrueCrypt 7.0a Install Script

Recommended Posts


Hi Folks,

I am trying to automate the install of TrueCrypt but am getting stuck on the first window where I have to tick to accept the terms of the license. Window details below. Once the tick box is checked the rest of the install uses normal controls if you accept the defaults.

I'm relatively new to scripting, and I can't seem to find anywhere else on the Forums where this is discussed (or it could be that I don't know what to search for :huh2:. Feel free to point me to another post if you think that will help.

I'm trying to use the code below to specify the co-ordinates in the window that I want to click:

ControlClick("TrueCrypt Setup 7.0a","","[CLASS:#32770; INSTANCE:1]","Left",1,9,231)

but it's just not working and I suspect I'm missing some fundamental 'this-is-how-it-works' knowledge.

The the control-click co-ords (below) are the location of the check box needed to be checked to continue.

I'm not worried about getting the encryption going, this is just to install the program.

Thanks in advance.

I'm starting to prefer ControlClick more than sending keystrokes, but I am also having trouble getting it to work with TrueCrypt. You can always do it the old fashioned way:


#include <ByteMe.au3>

Hey sleepydvdr,

Sorry for the delayed response - yep that works nicely. I agree, I think the ControlClick is far more precise and probably less prone to error. Why oh why do so many companies have these 'odd' installer pages? Just to make life difficult? Ah well, problem solved till the next version :huh2:

Thanks again
