AU3Recorder not recording mouse clicks

Recommended Posts

kenster89

When I run AU3Recorder from SciTE, no mouse clicks are recorded (Yes, the "Record Mouse" checkbox is checked.) Here is some information about by setup:

  • AutoIt version: 3.3.12.0
  • SciTE version: 3.4.1
  • OS: Windows 8 x64
  • Additional info: two-monitor setup, account has administrator privileges

Here are the entire contents of my script file after the recording:

+>         SciTEDir => C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE   UserDir => C:\Users\accountname\AppData\Local\AutoIt v3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper   SCITE_USERHOME => C:\Users\accountname\AppData\Local\AutoIt v3\SciTE 
#region --- Au3Recorder generated code Start (v3.3.9.5 KeyboardLayout=00000409)  ---
#endregion --- Au3Recorder generated code End ---

Thanks in advance for your help.

That is odd, as I am unable to reproduce under the exact same setup. Did it just start for you as a problem, or has it always been this way under WIN8?

#region --- Au3Recorder generated code Start (v3.3.9.5 KeyboardLayout=00000409)  ---
_WinWaitActivate("C:\Users\Hades\Desktop\Test2.au3 * SciTE","")
MouseMove(799,433)
MouseDown("left")
MouseMove(816,598)
MouseUp("left")
#endregion --- Au3Recorder generated code End ---

While we obviously want to get the recorder working for you, if you can explain just what you're trying to do we can probably offer suggestions on a workaround that may be even better at accomplishing your primary goal.

I installed AutoIt and SciTE for the first time today and it has never worked properly.

What I am trying to do is automate a series of clicks to generate a license for one of our products.

Any 'anti-keylogger' type software is going to interfere. Virus protection, Hp Security software. AutoIt recorder needs to set a system wide "hook". If it can't... it doesn't work.

LarryDalooza,

I do have Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection running at the moment. Before I disable it, Is there any way to confirm definitely that Forefront is the problem? Why doesn't the recorder prompt you that this is happening??

I am also having the same issue on Win 8.1

Steps to replicate:

Have IE window open in background

Have SciTE open on front

Start recording

Now press Alt Tab (this will bring IE window on front)

Do mouse clicks on this IE window

it will not record for me.

I too had the same issue but on Windows 10.

The best solution for this is to UN-CHECK the "Record Mouse" Check-Box and then start recording, Due to some glitch the checkbox flag might be reversed, its an defect from AutoIT.

Hope this helps :)

Happy Automating.
