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

5 posts in this topic

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?

      Ok so im using this program. clarify for school. I would like to have a program that takes every word i type in microsoft word and searches on it in claryfi. is this possible. I would like to have the program not stopping me from typing more after that word. Like when i type a word it auto search it on clarify without making me stop typing and if i want to change i can do that and if im fine that word i can just keep typing and it will search after the next word.

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.

      I need to open an application and send it keys in Session 0.  I have exe's working locally, I can see the application open in session 0 through interactive services, but my send commands do not go to the application.  The following article running-autoit-session-0, directs me to use ControlSend() however my application has no controls that can be identified by AutoIt v3 Window Info.  Get All Windows Controls also returned nothing for the application's handle.  
      What are my options?  
      Can this be done with AutoIt?
      Is there a different "relatively simple" library/tool to use? (I am familiar with C# if there is a viable library there )

      Hey all,
      Has anyone created any queries for youtube? I was thinking it might be something like this but can't quite figure it out:
      $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() _IENavigate($oIE,"https://www.youtube.com") Local $oForms = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "form") Local $sTxt = "" For $oForm In $oForms If $oForm.id = "masthead-search" Then $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input") For $oInput In $oInputs If $oInput.id = "masthead-search-term" Then _IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "cards") _IEFormSubmit($oForm) EndIf Next EndIf Next

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
      Thx
