winmove won't work on a certain window

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

so, i've never had a problem moving and resizing windows until now

this certain application won't let itself be resized by autoit it seems, it's resizable by normal means (with manual mouse resizing)

i know winmove works on my other applications because it resizes them (notepad, chrome, firefox)

have you guys ever experienced somethign like this? what would a program have that would seemingly block its window from being moved/resized by autoit

fyi, every other autoitfunction seems to work on it (with and without admin privileges), so i can't figure this out for the life of me

hello,

it's a video game, i'm trying to set it up so that it resizes every time i start it up as windowed, the game doesn't have the built in option

it's a seemingly normal executable file

i hope this isn't relevant, only because i can't seem to understand how a program could block this specific winmove function and leave every other function working

my mind is blown

rotatorkuf,

I feared as much - you appear to have missed the Forum rules on your way in. Please read them now (there is also a link at bottom right of each page) - particularly the bit about not discussing game interaction - and then you will understand why you will get no help and this thread will now be locked. :naughty:

See you soon with a legitimate question I hope. :)
