Nice work. Haven't tried it out yet, but it looks good. Are you working on a function to set the flags? I found that sometimes setting the registry key will change the settings but they don't take effect unless I manually interact with the compatibility tab.

great !

Just to make it cleaner, you could replace your For loop by a While in both functions :

Func _IsProgramInCompabilityMode($sFileFullPath)
    Local $sRegKey = 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers'
    Local $sValue
    Local $i = 0
    While 1
        $i += 1
        $sValueName = RegEnumVal($sRegKey, $i)
        If @error <> 0 Then ExitLoop
        If $sFileFullPath = $sValueName Then
            If StringRegExp(RegRead($sRegKey, $sValueName), $__sACF_REGEXP_Compability) Then
                Return True
            EndIf
        EndIf
    Next
    Return False
EndFunc   ;==>_IsProgramInCompabilityMode

Func _IsProgramRunWithSetting($sFileFullPath, $sSetting)
    Local $sRegKey = 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers'
    Local $sValue
    Local $i = 0
    While 1
        $i += 1
        $sValueName = RegEnumVal($sRegKey, $i)
        If @error <> 0 Then ExitLoop
        If $sFileFullPath = $sValueName Then
            If StringInStr(RegRead($sRegKey, $sValueName), $sSetting) Then
                Return True
            EndIf
        EndIf
    Next
    Return False
EndFunc   ;==>_IsProgramRunWithSetting

I found that sometimes setting the registry key will change the settings but they don't take effect unless I manually interact with the compatibility tab.

 

Did you check LogOut and LogIn to Windows ?

a mistake ...  not related content...

I try different scenario and I still had a problem.

 

here is info about: Declaring DPI Awareness: 

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd464660%28VS.85%29.aspx

and here is exactly what I need to use (I think so):

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd464660%28VS.85%29.aspx#declaring_dpi_awareness

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms701681(VS.85).aspx

so I have question:

How to use this:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms633543(v=vs.85).aspx

in AutoIt ?

      Hello,
      as a start in Autoit i tried something i was missing since im using Autoit. 

      I build a custom MessageBox which has a large amount of custom options and which scales its size on the parameters you set. 

      Aviable Settings:
      -Title
      -Unlimited Buttons
      -Text Color (Buttons, Text)

      -Background Color (Msgbox, Buttons, Label) 

      -Button Timeout
      -Autoclose Timeout
      -Icon (Default, No Icon, Custom)

      -Label/ Button Style. 
      -Transparency

      I tried to keep this as close as i could to a Msgbox i was used too on my batch times.

      After i was ready i realised, @Melba23 probably build a way better msgbox which would have suit my needs enterly, anyway thanks to @Melba23 because i use his Stringsize UDF. 

       
       
      local $Message = _sMsgBox("Test", 6, "Continue?") if @extended <> -1 Then MsgBox(0, @extended, $Message&" Button pressed")

      Dear members, 
      I am working on a project where, emails from outlook are to be read and moved to various folders within the mailbox, based on the content of the emails.
      I used the below code for moving mails. It works fine when I run it against individual mail ids. But when I run it on Shared mailbox, the mails are not moved to respective folders.
      _OL_ItemMove($oOutlook, $sEntryId, Default, $sDestinationFolder) The value of $sEntryId is saved in an excel report initially. The current process reads the $sEntryId from the excel and passes it to "_OL_ItemMove" statement.
      Requesting the guidance of the forum members in this issue.

      Good evening everyone
      I am working with Word UDF ( thanks @water! ), and, especially, with the function _Word_DocFindReplace().
      The replace does work everywhere in the document, but, it does not work in Headers or Footers.
      Am I missing something or am I forced to use the code below?
      I have already looked in the Help file ( about _Word_DocFindReplace() ), but there are no mentions about replace text in Headers/Footers.
      Sub FindAndReplaceFirstStoryOfEachType() Dim rngStory As Range For Each rngStory In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges With rngStory.Find .Text = "find text" .Replacement.Text = "I'm found .Wrap = wdFindContinue .Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll End With Next rngStory End Sub Thanks everyone in advance


      Best Regards.
