Security warning.

Recommended Posts

Newbie here, so please forgive me if this is the wrong place to post this.

I am attempting to automate installation of a list of programs, starting with 7-Zip.

Currently working in WinXP.

When I start up 7-Zip, a security warning box pops out asking me to click Run or Cancel.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to find the &Run button and press/click it.

Here is my current code progress, the commented out code reflects previous attempts at getting things to work:

ShellExecute(@ScriptDir & "7-Zip 9.2.exe")
;ShellExecuteWait(@ScriptDir & "7-Zip 9.2.exe")
_WinWaitActivate("Open File - Security Warning","")
ControlClick("Open File - Security Warning","","[CLASSNN:Button1;]")
;ControlClick("Open File - Security Warning","","[CLASS:Button; TEXT:&Run;]")
;ControlClick("Open File - Security Warning","&Run","")
Thanks for taking the time to read this.

this is not a answer to your question, but you may want to check out ninite.com

They offer an amazing (free) tool to automatically install many applications. I use it since a very long time.

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

Unfortunately 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 bypassing of security measures - 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. :)
