Installation successful page in a wizard doesn't get activate after instalation takes place

Recommended Posts

Mamatha

I am trying to automate (.exe file) the installation process of my product using autoit.

Everything works ok except the last before page.

When I hit next button on "ready to install" page, it goes to "installing" page (on this page it installs all the required files and it has no buttons / keys to sent to goto next page. This process takes about 3-4 minutes)

And then it automatically goes to "installation successful" page. On this page I have to hit "finish" button here to end up.

It stopped working at the "installing" page in the wizard.

Please find the code that I have been trying.

#requireadmin

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

Opt("WinTextMatchMode", 2)

$Version = "1234"

$sScriptName = "Installation Automater"

$exe = "C:\Setup"&$Version&".exe"

$ProcessName = "Setup"&$Version&".exe"

$windowname = "Matrix Setup"

$delay = 1000

ShellExecuteWait($exe)

;It waits for the 'welcome' page of the wizard to popup and become active

WinWaitActive($windowname)

sleep(500)

Send("!n")

Sleep($delay)

;Sends a mouse click command to 'I Agree' radio box on the license agreement dialog

ControlClick($windowname, "I agree to the terms of this license agreement", 602, "", 1)

Sleep($delay)

Send("!n")

;It waits for the 'installation folder' page of the wizard to popup and become active

WinWaitActive($windowname)

Sleep($delay)

Send("!n")

;It waits for the 'shortcuts' page of the wizard to popup and become active

WinWaitActive($windowname)

Sleep($delay)

ControlClick($windowname, "Next >", 100, "", 1)

;It waits for the 'ready to install' page of the wizard to popup and become active

WinWaitActive($windowname)

Sleep($delay)

Send("!n")

;It waits for the "lnstalling' page of the wizard to popup and become active

WinWaitActive($windowname, "Installing Matrix")

Sleep(180000)

;It waits for the 'installation successful' page of the wizard to popup and become active

WinWaitActive($windowname, "Installation Successful")

Sleep($delay)

Send("!f")

Exit

I don't see how it works at all because you start off with ShellExecuteWait(), pausing the script until the process finishes. That would prevent all the window handling after it.

:D

I changed ShellExecuteWait($exe) to Run($exe)

But the last bit still doesn't work

Hi Mamatha, I am also trying to automate an installation... Did you have any luck with this?

Hi, Mamatha. Rather than using WinWait and mouseclicks, have you looked into whether the product supports some mode of silent installation from the command line? This is often much easier than trying to script your way through the various windows. If you browse to the location of the executable from the command line and type in "exe name" /? does it return anything?

      Hey. I'm working on a new project and was wondering if there is a better way to "update" my Column E array. 
      Here is my code: 
      Local $nI  = 0                                                            ;Creates a name index of 0: nI = Name index Local $nII = 1                                                            ;Creates a name index of 1 for second loop: nII = Name Index 2 For    $iN = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1                                       ;Checks the roster for any names that appear twice      For $iN2 = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1          if $d_Names[$nI] == $d_Names[$nII] And $d_Names[$nII] <> "" Then              Local $timeSheetName = _ArraySearch($e_Names, $d_Names[$nI], 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)              ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Found it", $d_Names[$nI] & " In column E on Row " & $timeSheetName)              Local $eI  = $timeSheetName + 1              ;ConsoleWrite($timeSheetName & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite($eI & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)              _Excel_RangeInsert($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, "E" & $eI & ":F" & $eI, $xlShiftDown)                                                                          ;Inserts a empty cell in columns E and F.              _Excel_RangeWrite($OpenWorkbook, $OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $d_Names[$nII], "E" & $eI)                                                                         ;Fills the empty cell in columns E with the doubled name              $aArray_Index = 2                                           ;Array element counter              For $Index = 2 To $IndexRows Step 1                        ;Loops through every row in the Excel file unto no rows are found or a null row is found                  $Array_Value_E = _Excel_RangeRead($OpenWorkbook, Default, "E"&$Index)                  $e_names[$aArray_Index] = $Array_Value_E                ;While the code loops every value in column E is stored in the E array (updating the array)                  $aArray_Index += 1              Next              ExitLoop          EndIf      Next      $nI  += 1      $nII += 1 Next Basically, It checks a roster for people whose name appears twice then inserts a new "row" for that person because they work in two different departments.
      I have to find that name however in Column E if two appear in column D. My code works but I think it is not as efficient as it could be. 
      Any ideas on how to improve the "update" for my array?
      (once it finds the double names in Column D it then searches for that name by going name by name in the Column E array and once it finds it inserts a new row. However, the E array doesn't have that new row stored in it so I have to "update" the array to properly find the next name)
      Any and all tips would be greatly appreciated. 
       
      NOTE: Just assume I'm opening the excel file properly please do not add that code in, it only complicates your answer.

      How do I properly convert this to Autoit? This is a VBA macro that I recorded in Excel.
       ActiveSheet.Outline.ShowLevels RowLevels:=2 I need this to close my subtotal once it is finished. 
      any help will be greatly appreciated.

      Hi,
      I was looking into a way to delete a registry key (not a specific value, an entire key) if it is present. I was considering using RegRead and RegDelete. However, RegRead appears to only read values, not just keys. Is there a way to delete an entire registry key if it is present? I have heard that the below function may help.

      The purpose is to try find the difference in days. Any suggestion?
