Here a small tool I wrote to update my Sysinternal tools collection without the need to download always the whole package or visiting the site to check for updates. I know that there are several tools available (also some tools written in AutoIt) but here another one for the collection. It was good exercise for me to code it.
Some files from cannot be downloaded although they are visible on the web site!
Here the download link of the source code only: AutoIt Sysinternal Tools Synchronizer v0.99.1 build 2017-10-23 beta.7z (1353 downloads previously)
-=> Requires AutoIt version 18.104.22.168 or higher / tested on Win8.1 real machine and some VMs: Win7 / Vista / Win10
Compiled exe only: @MediaFire
Just select the Sysinternal Tools folder or create one and press the synchronize button to download the selected items. Click on AutoIt label (near to left upper corner) to open menu.
Special thanks to LarsJ, Melba23 and mesale0077 for their help.
I've still some ideas to implement which are more gimmick related, so it is not finished yet...
If you want to add your language please check out #Region Language. Thanks.
Please report any bug or if you have any suggestions.
The language of the tool tip from each of the executable in the left list view were automatically created using Google translator and weren't checked for correctness.
I've written the code below which launches chrome in incognito mode and then proceeds to go to the autoit website.
From my understanding, the Run() command is also supposed to output the PID number related to the application that got launched from the Run command.
However when I run the below lines, it outputs a PID number that is different from the newly launched chrome browser's PID number, does anyone know why and possibly explain how I could retrieve the accurate PID number associated with the newly launched browser?
Global $iPid = Run(@ComSpec & ' /c start chrome.exe https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/ -incognito' ,"", "") msgbox(0,"",$iPid) Thank you,
I've been trying to figure out how to launch Google Chrome in the background (hidden) but it doesn't seem possible. I've tried the following methods:
ShellExecute("C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe", "", "", "", @SW_HIDE) Also I've tried:
ShellExecute(@ComSpec, "/c start chrome.exe","","",@SW_HIDE) Lastly I tried:
But all of them launch my chrome browser without hiding it. Does anyone know a workaround for this or if AutoIT just can't Chrome?
Bonus points if you know how to make it launch chrome hidden and make it go to https://www.autoitscript.com
I'm trying to get the output data from https://www.guilded.gg but it uses a web app that generates that output on the fly and this doesn't show up in the page source.
Only in web inspector of each browser does this data show up. How do I read this data in autoit (equivalent to the web inspector)
We can select elements in IE using their IDs as below.
Local $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "x-auto-16-input") But to one button in the webpage, there is no ID to it.
In selenium we have option to select this element using the CssSelector and clicked the button using below code in c# selenium.
driver.FindElement(By.CssSelector("button.x-btn-text")).Click(); What is the alternative for this in AUtoIT?
