Windows 7 and AutoIt

Recommended Posts

Thavos

First off, sorry if this has been asked before already. I did look around some but I couldn't quite find anyone with the problem I have.

To the point - my problem is quite simple. AutoIt script that had been working for a long time does not work on my PC anymore. I can open scripts fine, just they don't work no longer. Now I know that the fault does not lie in the script because I tested that same file on laptop (after it stopped working) and it worked fine there. This has happened to me before in the past on same computer and back then I didn't manage to fix it. 

So yeah.. if you guys can think of any reasons why AutoIt stops working all of a sudden like this on specific computer that runs windows 7, please let me know.

I am sure it line 20 in your script. ;)

Seriously: I am flattered that you feel the intelligence level in these forums are such that you can get an answer about your problem with the shared information, although I am sure the chances are way higher when you share some real information about what the script does and maybe even the script source.
What kind of debugging did you do?
What defines "stopped working"?
Etc ...

... that and are you talking of a compiled script or just some .au3 file?
Which AutoIt version(s)?
Etc.

Apparently it was windows updates that caused the problem. After system restore everything works fine again.

What can I do to avoid windows updates from being a problem in the future?

Or...post your script so we can actually see what you're doing, as Jos tried to allude to (sadly, apparently too subtly). Then you can determine what change likely caused the issue, and what sort of updates might affect it in the future.

Also sorry about being so vague, I just knew for sure that it had nothing to do with the script but windows, that's why I gave that little info to begin with.

Maybe you want to re-read that last bit and think how that comes across.
I would love to give a serious reaction but you are making it damn hard. ;)
