francoiste - Please close the "Report Log Window" to exit

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

i have just upgraded from to (including SciTE4AutoIt

this is my code

#include <Debug.au3>
_DebugSetup("MyTool - Debug", False)

; ...

Exit (0)

upon program exit there's an annoying windows opening with the message: Please close the "Report Log Window" to exit.

after commenting out the first to lines (the #include and the _DebugSetup(...)) the symptom dissapears.

i have just read the current documentation for "_DebugSetup".

there it mentions: If the "Report Log Window" type is used then the script will end only when closing the report window.

so the current behaviour seems to be "as designed".

i'm just surprised it was different in earlier versions.

even though i don't ever call "_DebugOut(...)" - and hence there will be no debug window - it insists i should close it on program exit.

Looking at the change logs, nothing has been changed in the UDF recently. In the help file page for the UDF it does say clearly:


If the "Report Log Window" type is used then the script will end only when closing the report window

so it is unsurprising that the report window stays open. Besides you surely wish to see the debug information you have collected? ;)

This thread from a few years ago suggests a possible solution - any use? :huh:


Edit: I see you have now read the Help file too! :D

Because the debug environment get's prepared by _DebugSetup.

As this UDF is for debugging only (not to be used in a production environment), there should be a call to _DebugOut as well.

So: Either remove thwe first two lines as you did or add some calls to _DebugOut.

      Hi, having an issue with an application i did, seems to crash randomly, and can take hours to do so.
      Simply says in the error msgbox:
      AutoIt Error
      Line 16392 (whatevermyapppath.exe)
      Error: The requested action with this object has failed.
      Recent changes to the script include this:
      ObjGet("winmgmts:\\localhost\root\CIMV2") $oSelect_active_network_cards = $objWMIService.ExecQuery('SELECT ProductName FROM Win32_NetworkAdapter WHERE NetConnectionStatus = 2 OR NetConnectionStatus = 9', "WQL") For $oSelect_active_network_card In $oSelect_active_network_cards $Adapter = $oSelect_active_network_card.ProductName Next Is the only thing i can see that can be related to an "object"
      This lines run only once at the top of the script.
      When i run the script itself and wait for a crash, it doesn't, or at least yet i didn't.
      What do you think this error could be?
      UPDATE: Runing the script eventually output this:
      "C:\script.au3" (894) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
      $oNetwork_cards = $objWMIService.ExecQuery('SELECT BytesReceivedPerSec, BytesSentPerSec FROM Win32_PerfFormattedData_Tcpip_NetworkInterface WHERE name LIKE "' & $Adapter & '"', "WQL")
      $oNetwork_cards = $objWMIService^ ERROR

      When an error occurs in a compiled script, the line number where the error occurred does not match. I noticed that blank lines and lines with only comments are ignored. in the attached example, it is advised that the error occurred on line 2, although in line 4. How to make it warned the correct line?

      I updated to the last version. Since then a lot of functions are not working.  For instance expanding abbreviation. My are correct and are including both import lines. The abbreviation is red but won't expand. Neither with space nor Ctrl+B.
      Debug to msgbox and console not working, list functions, jump to function, open include too.
      SciTE Jump works. Block and box comment too.
      I have the feeling all functions especially for autoit are not working.
      Any help? Regards, Conrad
