Recommended Posts

Hi guys, found on the Internet code to reload explorer.exe, the code works as expected, but the error takes:Error parsing function call

Run("explorer.exe",Call(ProcessClose("explorer.exe")))

How to hide error or fix this?

Thanks in advance!

The second parameter for Run is the working directory, you can't just throw a function call in there and expect it to work.


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.

      Hello!
      I want to make a script that changes the filesize of program files while still having them run as usual.
      I tried FileWrite() but then the program wouldnt be recognized as a runnable program, could you guys help me to the right path?

      Hi AutoIters!
       
      Im trying to launch a .exe file that is nested within the program files (x86) folder structure. i have already used the standard RunAs Syntax and found that it fails to launch the application. I have switched to Run and that seems to work. My issue is I have to use RunAs as the applicaton would need to run under a completely different account. The Current logged in user is a Local User on the machine, however, the application must be run as a domain user. The Machine is domain connected.
       
       have tried the following:
      RunAs("username","logonpassword", $RUN_LOGON_PROFILE, "D:\Program Files (x86)\Vendor\Application Name\Exe Location\Executable.exe") The above fails to launch, there are no errors or syntax issues, it just does nothing when the variables are replaced for the correct values.
      I did the same using the Run command
      Run("D:\Program Files (x86)\Vendor\Application Name\Exe Location\Executable.exe") That seems to work fine, but runs in local user context. Any thoughts? Could it be a local Machine rights issue? Or have i missed something glaring in my script

      This script used to work on an older version of AutoIT. Currently I am running AutoIT v3.3.14.5 and it's failing.
      Func PublicIP() ;Post public facing IP address Local $url = 'https://www.google.com/search?client=opera&q=what+is+my+ip&sourceid=opera&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8' Local $getIPaddress = BinaryToString(InetRead($url)) Local $sStart = 'clamp:2">' Local $sEnd = '</div>' Local $ipaddress = _StringBetween($getIPaddress, $sStart, $sEnd For $i In $ipaddress MsgBox(0, 'External IP', "Your public IP address is " & $i) Next EndFunc ;==>PublicIP The console output shows:

      I'm listing the error message strings, and roughly matching the error code
      Is this how to do error reporting?  Is there a more simple way I don't know about?
      I realise I might not need to trap @error inside $error.  I like it this way b/c I have no fear of overwriting @error now; I don't even use it.
      Func Send_Connect($address, $port)     $socket = TCPConnect($address, $port)     $error = @error     If $error <> 0 Then         Local $aError[4] = ["-2 not connected.", _                             "1 IPAddr is incorrect.", _                             "2 port is incorrect."]         $aError[3] = "10060 Connection timed out."         If $error < 0 Then $error = 0         If $error > 2 Then $error = 3         MsgBox(0, "TCP Connect Error", $aError[$error], 0)         $socket = 0     EndIf     Return $socket EndFunc

      Hi everyone,
      I am wondering if is there any autoit function that make the program ignore errors and move on and resume correct lines?
      Thank you
