_IEFormGetObjByName only works when running as administrator

Recommended Posts


In my script, I called something like this:

$o_loginForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($o_IE, "f1")

if Not IsObj($o_loginForm) Then
   MsgBox(0, "Error", "Failed to get login form")

From testing, it seems that if I login as a normal user (domain user), then the o_loginForm will not be valid. However, if I run this code from a command prompt that is "run as administrator", then it worked properly.

Is there a specific IE settings to configure this?

welcome to the autoit forums ykphuah, using code tags - [ autoit ] [ / autoit ] (<--- just take out the spaces and put your code inside) will wrap your code in color syntax highlighting. :)

I see that that is not your full script. Would you mind posting it?
