Error creating IE with local html

Recommended Posts


Hi, I am using this code to create an IE window with my local html:

$oIEC = _IECreate('file:///C:/Users/Kinhow/Desktop/script/index.html')

Then I get this error:

C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3 (560) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:



>Exit code: 1

Then I tried using WebMatrix to create a localhost so I would have a "real" url and see what could happen but I get the same error

$oIEC = _IECreate('http://localhost:60399/')

Anything I am missing here?

Security zone issue, most likely.

Try _IECreate with nowait, wait for the window to load and then use _IEAttach

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
