Issue with Windows Forms Buttons

Recommended Posts


I am new to Autoit and thus far love the tool.. I am attempting to create a software silent install package.. After the software installs the window changes to a Windows Form with an install and don't install button to also install an Excel Plugin. I have been looking for resolution on the Forums and have found some ideas but nothing has worked to allow me to select the install buttons.. Here is what I have tried..

WinWait('[TITLE:Microsoft Office Customization Installer; CLASS:WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.378734a]', 'Argus.ArgusOBA.ExcelAddin2007')
WinActivate('[TITLE:Microsoft Office Customization Installer; CLASS:WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.378734a]', 'Argus.ArgusOBA.ExcelAddin2007')
MouseClick('left', 423,247, 1, 1)

ControlClick('[Title:Microsoft Office Customization Installer; CLASS:WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.378734a]', '[CLASS:WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.378734a; Instance:2]')

I have even tried

Send('{left}{Enter}') after the window activation..

Here is the Window Summary

This package will be used in a KACE Deployment for our pc images.. If I cant find a way to terminate this window the deployment will hang thinking that the software install is not completed and the systems will not finish.. So regardless of how the plugin is installed I still need a way to get past this GUI.. As this plugin install comes after the software package I need was created and completed. I am not calling the vsto.. It is being call by an installation however I may be able to turn this off and then use VSTOInstaller.exe to do the install that this GUI is prompting.. I will give it a shot.
