Error: Error parsing function call

Recommended Posts

acewarner

Hello,

I am brand new to using this application. ( In advance let me say that I have searched the forums for the answer and worked on this for some time before posting OPs) I have a script that I am working on and I will post the script below. (Its not orginally my script, but it would work for excactly what I need). Whenever I run it I get an Error parsing function call message referring to "Line 6 (File"C:\\Documents and settings\muse\desktop\uninstall.exe" file. I am not sure what I am doing wrong here and would appreciate ant help. Thanks!

;1.Launch uninstaller if it exists
;
If FileExists ("c:\Program Files\Pharos\bin\Uninst.EXE") Then

run("c:\Program Files\Pharos\bin\Uninst.EXE")
;2.Wait for the window to exist
WinWait("Pharos Uninstallation","Welcome to the Pharos Uninstallation program.")
;if it exists, continue
If WinExists("Pharos Uninstallation","Welcome to the Pharos Uninstallation program.") Then

Opt('SendKeyDelay',500); 500 milliseconds
;Send n for next
Send(enter)
;send space to select pharos
Send(" ")
;send alt-n to hit next
Send("!n")
;send alt-n to hit next again
Send("!n")
;send alt-s to hit start
Send("!s")
;Wait for finished window
WinWait("Finished","Press the Finish button to exit this program.",60)
;Make sure this window is active:
WinActivate("Finished")
;send alt-f to hit finish
Send("!f")
EndIf
EndIf

Send(enter) is wrong. Needs to be Send("{ENTER}")

Thanks that cleared the error, but the next window in the program installation process can take either of the following keystrokes to engage the "Next" radio button. Either an ALT N, a space, or an enter command works when I do it manually. I know how to use the Send("{ENTER}"), I have tried the Send("!n") for ALT N, and the Send("{SPACE}") for space. None of these work and I am still getting the same script error as I listed above. The program is pretty simple. But I am pretty sure that I am just screwing up something simple.

What is the error message you're getting, the exact message from the Scite console would be helpful, as well as any other pertinent information displayed there.


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.

Why not use Au3Info and ControlClick? Because using Send can cause problems if the window doesn't have focus or a window in the background pops up randomly.
