Start IE with script

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,

I don't understand why my script doesn't launch IE:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 1)


Local $iPID
$iPID = Run("iexplorer.exe","C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer")
MsgBox ( $MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Valeur retournée", $iPID )

The returned value is still 0 and IE is not started. I'm running Win7 x64.

I tried: but don't start ie neither:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 1)


Local $iPID
$iPID = Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe")
MsgBox ( $MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Valeur retournée", $iPID )

Why don't you use the IE UDF that comes with Autoit?

Also iexplorer.exe does not exist... It is iexplore.exe.

Your first example cannot work because you must specify the full path to the program (if it's path is not defined in the PATH environment variable).

$iPID = Run(@ProgramFilesDir & "\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe")

I'm sure you didn't want to mark your post as "Best answer" ;)

Which one solved your problem?
