What changed is the latest versions of Autoit?

Recommended Posts



Just after updated Autoit to the latest version (the older version was around one year old), things like the following stopped working.

$oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1")
$oHTTP.Open("POST", "http://example.com/s.php", True)
$sPD = ""
MsgBox(4096, 'return', $oHTTP.Status)

It doesn't give any errors, it just doesn't return anything.

Any help?

"What changed?" - Please check the history. There is a section about script breaking changes as well.

There is absolutely no error checking in your script.

Make sure that no function call returns an error before executing the next statement.

$oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1")
If @error Then Exit MsgBox(0, "Error", "ObjCreate: Error occurred: @error = " & @error)

BTW it seems that a simple If @error Then is going to stop working in the near future (sigh!).

Thank your for the fast reply, I should have checked before posting.

Seems that replacing True with False on $oHTTP.Open (async) returns the correct 200 status.

      I want use WinHttpRequest to access a OpenShift API server, it use a self signed certificate.
      Does now work...
      I never try with a self signed certificate, how do this?
      Best regards
      Global $oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1") $oHTTP.Open("GET", "https://openshift.domain:1234/api/", False) $oHttp.Option(4) = 0x0100 + 0x0200 + 0x1000 + 0x2000 $oHTTP.Option(9) = 0x0080 ;WinHttpRequestOption_SecureProtocols ;~ $oHttp.SetClientCertificate("LOCAL_MACHINE\\Personal\\certificado.crt") $oHttp.Send() $oHttp.WaitForResponse() Local $oAllHeaders = $oHttp.GetAllResponseHeaders() $oReceived = $oHttp.ResponseText $oStatusCode = $oHttp.Status $oHttp = 0 If $oStatusCode = 200 Then ConsoleWrite("$oAllHeaders--------------------" & @LF & $oAllHeaders & "$oAllHeaders--------------------" & @LF) Else ConsoleWrite("< error = " & $oReceived & @LF & $oAllHeaders & @LF) EndIf

      Hi Guys,
      I am having an issue with multiple Windows 10 systems (actually all systems running Windows 10 running the same script have this issue) I have a script which calls the winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1 object and allows me to get sites HTML source, I am using multiple Open commands on the same object which I didn't assume would be an issue.
      The issue I am getting is quite often the Send command to the object will fail (in fact I have not been able to finish running the script because it fails everytime) with an Error
      Now this exact code was working fine in Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 7 before I upgraded the systems to Windows 10, anybody know what's going on here?
      P.S when I say I use multiple Open and Send commands I mean I have two instances of winhttprequest objects open and it probably does a total of about 600 Open and Sends but as I mentioned this had never been an issue until Windows 10.

      Not familiar with "winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1" Object, Ergo: Just experimenting a bit with it.
      When using the 'ResponseStream' option ... AutoIt crashes.

      - Anything I'm doing wrong (or missed) ? (or potential issue/bug)

      Don't know much about a 'IStream', other than that 'ResponseStream' is supposed to return a pointer to it.

      msdn: WinHttpRequest Object

      main() Func main() Local $oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1") Local $sType = 'GET' Local $sUrl = 'http://www.autoitscript.com/site/' Local $sData = '' ;; optional parm. _HTTPRequest($oHTTP, $sType, $sUrl, $sData) EndFunc Func _HTTPRequest($oHTTP, $oMethod, $oURL, $oData = "") ;; http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384106 Local $iResult = 0 ;; debug $oHTTP.Open($oMethod, $oURL, False) ;; empty -> ok. $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("User-Agent", "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008120122 Firefox/3.0.5") ;; empty -> ok. If $oMethod = "POST" Then $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded") ;; empty -> ok. EndIf $oHTTP.Send($oData) ;; empty -> ok. ;~ ;; options: ResponseBody, ResponseStream, ResponseText, Status, StatusText ;~ $iResult = $oHTTP.StatusText ;; "OK" -> ok. ;~ $iResult = $oHTTP.Status ;; 200 -> ok. ;~ $iResult = $oHTTP.ResponseBody ;; binary(ResponseText) -> ok. ;~ $iResult = $oHTTP.ResponseText ;; html page/content -> ok. $iResult = $oHTTP.ResponseStream ;; crash with & (Win.Xp.32b) EndFunc
