Scripts are not running

20 posts in this topic

Hey there.

I'm trying to write a simple installation script using Scite but it doesn't seem to work.

What's wrong with the script below?

Opt("WinWaitDelay", 100)
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
Opt("WinDetectHiddenText",1)
Opt("MouseCoordMode",0)
Run('C:AppzNotepadnpp.6.6.6.Installer.exe')
 
 
I'm using Windows 8.1 Update 1 x64
 
Thanks!

The script itself is fine, as long as 'C:AppzNotepadnpp.6.6.6.Installer.exe' exists.

Have you double checked the path and file names?

The Opt statements you have listed will not have any effect on the Run command.  I assume you are including those for something else that will be added to the script later.  You might want to read up on the WinTitleMatchMode option in the help file.  The value 4 is for backwards compatability, so there might be a better value to use for your purposes.

@willichan is right.

Try this:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Opt("WinWaitDelay", 100)
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
Opt("WinDetectHiddenText",1)
Opt("MouseCoordMode",0)
Local $sFielFullPath = 'C:\Appz\Notepad\npp.6.6.6.Installer.exe'
if FileExists($sFielFullPath) then
    Run($sFielFullPath)
Else
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Info", "File not exists", 10)
EndIf

I just reinstalled Windows 8.1 prior Update 1 but the problem persists...

Now I'm wondering if I'm using the right Scite version

What's not working? Does the program not run? Do you get any errors? Have you checked to see if @error is set after the run command? 


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.

The problem (VLC installer for instance) doesn't run at all with the script I wrote. I haven't tried to set @error but the Scite log shows no error

Thanks. It works perfectly with WinZip but I can't make it work with VLC, Trillian and some other softwares.

Where can I find some kind of 'compilers' compatible list?

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    AutoIt Version: 3.3.12.0
    Author:         3jameo3

    Script Function:
    VLC Installer

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

; Script Start - Add your code below here
; This is an unfinished version i'll let you fix it

run("vlc-2.1.3-win32.exe")
WinWaitActive("Installer Language")
Send("{ENTER})")
WinWaitActive("VLC media player 2.1.3 Setup")
send("!n")
WinWaitActive("VLC media player 2.1.3 Setup")
send("!n")
WinWaitActive("VLC media player 2.1.3 Setup")
send("{UP}")
send("!n")
WinWaitActive("VLC media player 2.1.3 Setup")
send("!i")
WinWaitActive("VLC media player 2.1.3 Setup") ; error here
send("!f")
WinWaitActive("Privacy and Network Access Policy")
send("{ENTER}")
WinWaitActive("VLC media player")
WinClose("VLC media player)")

unfinished but it will automate to the last page of the installer if you want it to go further then fix it i commented where the error is. and its an easy fix if you look at the rest of the coding. the way i have it setup is to run the program IF its in the same folder/area as this script should be an easy change to make it go to a different folder in your computer kinda like a .bat script. enjoy hope this will help you learn how one is made

also note i'm running windoes 7 64 bit and that is actually a 32bit application but it works for me

Looks like there's something wrong somewhere around here. This script executes but don't launch the installer.

Maybe its some new update issue since only a few application installer arent being launched by AutoIt and I use Windows 8 since its beta and never got any kind of problem. What runs in Win 7 runs smoothly in 8, at least here

Thats ok, to launch the installers with a batch file is an easy workaround

i have an idea to make your workaround somewhat easier just have the bat run the script after opening the installer or vise versa have the script run the bat to open the installer then have it wait until the installer window activates etc

What do you get if you run this?

If FileExists('C:\Appz\Notepad\npp.6.6.6.Installer.exe') Then
    MsgBox(0,'file check', 'Executable was found')
Else
    MsgBox(0,'file check', 'Executable was NOT found')
EndIf
