My program and windows 8

8 posts in this topic

Hey Autoit community! been using this program for some time now, and i've stumbled across a problem.. and just wondering if someone is able to help me out with that,

Alright so i coded my program to detect a specific color then send a command, this program worked for all OS, but windows 8, I've tried every color just to see if i can get my program running on w8 os. was unable to.

Am i able to modify my script to make such program work with w8 or is there something i could download for Autoit overall?.

Thanks for reading and hope you can help :).

You should probably check what the PixelGetColor returns for a value when you run it, then go from there. Because right now, all you know is that the color isn't one that you're checking for, but you don't show what it IS returning.


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.

Either it's your program or it's Windows 8, without checking the return value, you will never know. Also, are you trying to read a color while the Windows 8 start screen is up, or when the Desktop is visible, or are you trying to read the color from a specific program in the middle of the screen?
