"Error: Error parsing function call." ~ In One Of My Functions During Runtime

9 posts in this topic

Greetings,

I used to use this function a lot and never had any problems with it. I even recently added it to my UDF but now upon retesting it I get this error during runtime (No compile errors): Error: Error parsing function call.

Here is the function. It is for deleting IE and Flash cookies from the system:

#Include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Func _ClearCookies()
    ShellExecuteWait("RunDll32.exe","InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 2")
    $cookieFolders = _FileListToArray(@AppDataDir&"\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects","*",2)
    If @error Then
        Return "nonetorm"
    Else
        _ArrayDelete($cookieFolders,0)
        For $i = 0 To UBound($cookieFolders) -1
            $siteFolders = _FileListToArray(@AppDataDir&"\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\"&$cookieFolders[$i],"*",2)
            If $i = 0 Then
                _ArrayDelete($siteFolders,0)
            EndIf
            For $j = 0 To UBound($siteFolders) -1
                DirRemove(@AppDataDir&"\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\"&$cookieFolders[$i]&"\"&$siteFolders[$j],1)
            Next
        Next
    EndIf
    Return "cookiesremoved"
EndFunc

Thank you to anyone who can help.

Most of the time this error is caused by mismatching quotes.

I have commented out the flash cookies code and only left the line:

ShellExecuteWait("RunDll32.exe","InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 2")

Which is what is causing the problem. When I run the RunDLL32.exe from powershell or CMD with that argument it works fine.

Just to simplify your script a bit:

Func _ClearCookies()
    ShellExecuteWait("RunDll32.exe","InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 2")
    $cookieFolders = _FileListToArray(@AppDataDir&"\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects","*",2)
    If @error Then
        Return "nonetorm"
    Else
        For $i = 1 To UBound($cookieFolders) -1
            $siteFolders = _FileListToArray(@AppDataDir&"\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\"&$cookieFolders[$i],"*",2)
            For $j = 1 To UBound($siteFolders) -1
                DirRemove(@AppDataDir&"\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\"&$cookieFolders[$i]&"\"&$siteFolders[$j],1)
            Next
        Next
    EndIf
    Return "cookiesremoved"
EndFunc

Your second array was only deleting the 'counter' element on your first itteration through i, but it always will be there an each loop...switched to just skip it.

I just did another test, commenting out the Shell line and leaving the flash cookie code. Both seem to crash the script with the same error. I don't get it.

Thanks, I'll use that but now I have a really strange problem. I commented EVERYTHING out of that function and I still get the same error when calling it.
