5 posts in this topic

Hello,

I made a script to run programs automatically. While I am double clickng on the script, it runs fine. so, I place it on startup folder so that when windows start, the script runs automatically.

But while windows start, script gives me a error "Windows can't find 'program.lnk'. Make sure you typed the name correctly..."

But then I exit the script and double click on it...it starts everything fine !!

What is the problem here? Need some help.

OS:- Win 8.1 64bit

Hard to say without seeing what it is you're trying to do in the script. Post a reproducer script that demonstrates what you're doing and that doesn't work as expected when run from the start up folder.


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.

Does your script have #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_RequestedExecutionLevel=requireAdministrator, or #pragma compile(ExecLevel, requireAdministrator) in it?  If it does, Windows will not allow it to run on start up.

Ok..here is the script:- very simple scirpt:-

First..it runs default program(default.lnk), then program 1 (1.lnk)

then It click on certain button inside default program, then next select program 1 and click inside it.

AutoIt Version: 3.3.10.2
 Author:         myName

 Script Function:
    Template AutoIt script.

#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

; Script Start - Add your code below here
ShellExecute("Default.lnk", @desktopDir)
sleep(300)
ShellExecute("1.lnk", @desktopDir)
sleep(300)
sleep(100000)
WinActivate("[CLASS:Default.lnk]","")
ControlClick("", "", "[CLASS:Default.lnk:Chrome_RenderWidgetHostHWND; INSTANCE:1]","left",2,614,245)
sleep(1000)
WinActivate("[CLASS:1.lnk]","")
ControlClick("", "", "[CLASS:1.lnk:Chrome_RenderWidgetHostHWND; INSTANCE:1]","left",2,614,245)
WinMinimizeAll()

It works fine when I double click and run. But when in startup folder, it says it cant find default.link and program.lnk  in desktop !!

No.. I dont have nothing like this !!

Ok..I find a nother strange things... While in startup folder, I double click on it, it says cant find those .lnk files.

But in desktop while I click, it opens normally !!

ok..another thing is... if I place this script file in any place except desktop, its giving me this error !! so I guess...it is path finding problem I guess?
