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?

      Good morning everyone, I thought I had already solved this issue but it turns out I did not. 
      My code finds unread emails with this specific subject line of "request" but when I change the subject to SKIPPED + "request" = ("SKIPPED request") the program still finds the email and tries to process it. I only want to process emails with the exact match subject of "request".
      Here is my code that "finds" the unread emails with the subject of "request" or so I thought. 
      Func ListUnreadEmails() ;******************************************************************************* ; Lists all unread E-mails from the folder Outlook-UDF-Test ;******************************************************************************* ; Stores all the unRead emails into an array Global $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, "*\Outlook-UDF-Test", $olMail, _ "[UnRead]=True", "Subject", "request", "EntryID,Subject", "", 1) ; Displays the array of unRead emails If IsArray($aItems) Then ;_ArrayDisplay($aItems, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind - Unread mails") Else MsgBox(48, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind Example Script", _ "Could not find an unread mail. @error = " & @error & ", @extended: " & @extended) EndIf ; Gets the number of unread emails Global $numberOfUnRead = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) - 1 ;MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails", $numberOfUnRead) EndFunc It acts as if any part of the subject containing the word "request" and the email is unread that it will try to process it. (I think)

      Good afternoon, I am in need of some help. I am sure this is a stupid question requiring only one or two lines of code. However, I would greatly appreciate the help I cannot figure this out. I also tried searching for the answer on the internet but no one except me apparently seems to be having a hard time figuring this out and or is asking about it. 
      I simply want to change the "status" of an email from unread to read once I have processed it. My code is over 500 lines and I would like not to clutter this post with it. Assume I have all my includes and connections properly defined and stuff. 
      Here is the bit of code where I am trying to change the email that was used from unread to read:
      Func ChangeEmailStatus() ;******************************************************************************* ; changes the status of an email from unread to Read ;******************************************************************************* Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (Before Change)", $iRows) _OL_ItemModify($oOutlook,$aItems[$i][0], Default, "Read=True") MsgBox("", "Array Display 1", $aItems[1][0]) MsgBox("", "Array Display 2", $aItems[2][0]) Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (After Change)", $iRows) EndFunc

      Hello,
      Is there any way to check for validity of a pointer to a DllStruct ?
      In the above code, a DllStruct is created from an invalid pointer. How to prevent from doing this ?
      local $tStruct = DllStructCreate("int i") DllStructSetData($tStruct, "i", 123) local $pStruct = DllStructGetPtr($tStruct) $tStruct = 0 ; destroy DllStruct ==> $pStruct becomes invalid ; how to check here for validity of $pStruct and prevent from doing the following ? $tStruct = DllStructCreate("int i", $pStruct) ; create DllStruct from invalid pointer... MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, @error) ; displays '0' : invalid pointer is not detected by DllStructCreate() MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, IsDllStruct($tStruct)) ; displays '1' : tStruct is assumed as a valid DllStruct object, which is not Thanks for help
