Recommended Posts





I want to run a Windows DLL from a different path

32-bit Windows, DllOpen() can be executed in a different path  (ex, [F:.], [ In usb path] )

$i=DllOpen(@ScriptDir & "\user32.dll")

DllCall($i, 'int', 'keybd_event', 'int', 0x41, 'int', 0, 'int', 0, 'ptr', 0)
DllCall($i, 'int', 'keybd_event', 'int', 0x41, 'int', 0, 'int', 2, 'ptr', 0)



64-bit Windows7, the system32 folder only DllOpen() can be

I need DllOpen () will run on a special environment

Please help me

Are you running the script as a 32 bit process?

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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

I tested using VMware (Windows7 64bit)
The execution script is not the problem. 
However DllOpen () continues "-1 failure" Returns

DllOpen("c:WindowsSysWOW64 user32.dll")

"1"  Returns


After copying to a different path User32.dll


"-1"  Returns


32-bit is not a problem. Only 64-bit only is this.

Just a wild guess... might there be certain dependencies and the user32.dll just might no work from a different directory than the default one?


Maybe >re-registering the user32.dll might work? But that's no-men-land I will not test. Be very careful, I guess this might just crash / corrupt your whole system o:)

AFAIK there is no way to natively mix x64 and x86 modules within a single Windows process, or am I months late about system news?
