WinWaitActive issues with windows 7


Recommended Posts

Run('\[location]\Print-2-Image_7.1.0.9_setup.exe')

_WinWaitActivate("Setup - Print-2-Image","Welcome to the Print")

Send("{ENTER}")

_WinWaitActivate("Setup - Print-2-Image","Select Destination L")

Send("{ENTER}")

_WinWaitActivate("Setup - Print-2-Image","Setup is now ready t")

Send("{ENTER}")

_WinWaitActivate("Setup - Print-2-Image","Completing the Print")

Send("{ENTER}")

********************************

Func _WinWaitActivate($title,$text,$timeout=0)

WinWait($title,$text,$timeout)

If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text)

WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout)

WinSetState($title,$text,@SW_HIDE)

EndFunc

The above snippet worked fine on windows XP. With windows 7, the windows never really attains focus so we cannot feed any keys to it. As you can see, we are trying to install an application.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Your function accepts parameter $timeout but you never pass it so it defaults to 0.

0 means: Don't wait for the window.

So the window might be there or not. But you don't handle the situation "No window with the specified title and text found" in your function.

You should either wait forever for a window to exist or handle the situation when the window doesn't exist after x seconds.
