_IECreate 64bit only

Recommended Posts

Skorn

Hi,

I'm using _IECreate in my script and every single time that function is used it launches the 64bit version of IE only. I do not want this, I want 32bit only for compatibility and the 64bit version causes issues with webapps. Does anyone know how to fix this or launch 32bit only? Maybe I should launch the iexplore.exe directly to the x86 path instead of using _IECreate?

Thanks

Try adding this line #AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=n to the top of your script.


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.

Sorry but that did not work. The issue may be that my system wants to default to IE x64, i've tried to fix this but to no avail.

My laptop is running Win7 x64 and when I include the autoit3wrapper line, it runs the 32 version of IE, if I don't include it, it runs the 64 bit version.

You need to have the full SciTE editor, SciTE4AutoIt3 installed, the lite version you get with AutoIt lacks the wrapper. Then it will work.

I finally tried this and it works, however I do need to compile it as x86 for this to work correctly. Thanks for your help.
