Auto confirm pop-up Window

5 posts in this topic

Autoit is a bit new for me but I'm wondering if this is possible (maybe you can also tell me how).

As an Administrator I have to deal with an installation. This installation takes very long (almost 3 hours) and the only thing I need to do is install the first steps and then wait for maybe 100 pop-up windows and press the "ok" button or just hit Enter for each window.

Do you think it would be possible to write a small app that just presses the OK button or hits enter when the pop-up window appears on the screen? Any help would be nice! Thanks!

Here is par of a script I use for program installatio. It runs a loop that checks if a certain window is shown and performs a specific action. The last step, once complete jumps out of the loop.

This is not really a working example as it was culled from a large script, but will be a good starting point for you. The most useful functions used are 'ControlClick' and 'WinActive'. Look these up in the help. Use the 'AutoIt Window Info' program to determine the button names or window text. This is in the AutoIt start menu.

Personally, I would not use MouseClick or Send, the 'ControlClick' is the way to go.

$ThisIsLastWindow = 0
$SetupTitleBarName = "Blah Blah Setup"

While 1
    
    Sleep(500)
    
; Welcome Screen
    $WindowText = "Welcome to the"
    If WinActive($SetupTitleBarName, $WindowText) Then
    ; Click 'Next' button
        ControlClick($SetupTitleBarName, $WindowText, "&Next >")
    EndIf
    
; 'License Agreement' Screen
    $WindowText = "License Agreement"
    If WinActive($SetupTitleBarName, $WindowText) Then
    ; Click 'I accept' button
        ControlClick($SetupTitleBarName, $WindowText, "Button1")
    ; Click 'Next' button
        ControlClick($SetupTitleBarName, $WindowText, "&Next >")
    EndIf
    
; 'Ready to Configure' screen
    $WindowText = "Click Install to begin the installation."
    If WinActive($SetupTitleBarName, $WindowText) Then
    ; Click 'Install' button
        ControlClick($SetupTitleBarName, $WindowText, "&Install")
    EndIf
    
; 'Setup Complete' screen
    $WindowText = "Setup Complete"
    If WinActive($SetupTitleBarName, $WindowText) Then
    ; Click 'Next' button
        ControlClick($SetupTitleBarName, $WindowText, "Finish")
        $ThisIsLastWindow = 1
    EndIf
    
;Quit loop if the previuos window the installer will raise
    If $ThisIsLastWindow = 1 Then ExitLoop
    
WEnd
