Control Click, not clicking?

Recommended Posts

I'm applying some security settings to files, a bunch of the files I don't have permission on, which is another issues that's going to be fixed after this.

Anyway, I need to click Continue a couple thousand times without destroying my wrist. Here's what I have so far.

 WinActivate("Error Applying Security")
 ControlClick("Error Applying Security", "&Continue", "[CLASS:Button: INSTANCE:1]")

I'll worry about looping it once I've got it working right.

I used the window info tool to get what I've got there, but it just doesn't click the button. I run the script, nothing happens. I've also tried using MouseMove to that location and MouseClick, with similar results, mouse moves, nothing happens.

Is this because it's a virtual machine that I'm connected to? I don't have AutoIt installed on the server, I'm compiling the script and running it locally on the server I've just been connecting to it via RDP, I also tried the vSphere Console as well to no avail.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Windows shown through vsphere are just pixels...you won't be able to hook into the handles.

You'll need to execute the script on the VM, locally.

You can also do something like this (again through vSphere):

Until WinExists("Error Applying Security")
WinActivate("Error Applying Security")

Assuming it only takes 1 TAB to highlight the OK button, if not use additional Send commands.
