Hello, im back, just a quick question

6 posts in this topic

Hi, long time since my last spot!

I'm not sure if I should ask this in GH or here, but as I saw from the downloads my fav scripting language isnt yet compatible with win10? I can understand it, its a "fresh" thing (I try to say tht I'm not suprised, I only have a few questions about this)

1

If autoit will be comaptible with win10 I will be able to write scripts to older versions of windows right? Testing them would be pretty tricky, and I would like to test my script in the envirement they will run, but i could code in win10 then take my script to a win 7 or vista and use it (considering that of course i wrote the script to run on vista/win 8 for example), right?

2

When can we expect autoit to be running in win10? I see that last update was in July, and I'm not sure how much of a hassle it is to make it run on the new OS, but I would like to know if there is something of a notion of a compatable version (like next 2-8 months, or something)

Thank you for your help, and keep up the good work!

Ohh, nothing I havent tried it yet, I just read the list of compatible system, and I havent tried to download it. I assume now that Its actually compatable? :)

Other users have already tested it on Windows 10 and Autoit just seems to work fine.

I am running it for a week now and haven't had any issues yet but am not using scripts on a daily basis.

Technically it should work all that work in window view and 7 that is not obsolete even XP. Micrsoft will not spend time or money on rewriting the Windows loader or worse create a new API . of course improve is always wellcome. I think the most important thing in these cases is to be continually reading Microsoft page and see what's new and obsolete.

      I have a working script that changes the core affinity and process priority of multiples of a specific application I have running.  
      I have that part figured out.

      I would like to make a little modification to it.

      Windows10 introduced virtual desktops.  I am trying to have different core affinity and priority of processes on the visible and non-visible desktops.  
      What I need is a bool function that could be described as IsWindowOnCurrentDesktop($hWnd).  I have searched the winAPI.au3 but I do not believe anything like that exists built it.
      I have searched multiple places before asking for help. I found a Microsoft supplied example of the function I need using C#, but I am unfamiliar with C# to a degree that I cannot port the system call over.
      https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/winsdk/2015/09/10/virtual-desktop-switching-in-windows-10/
      Help is appreciated but not expected.  Thanks in advanced.   In the meantime I will be learning C# syntax and class structure.

      Hi
      I need help.
      I have re-installed AutoIt, but the problem persists.
      My script uses an #include <tourney_mymain.a3x> which Scite fails to read.  To be clear, as long as it is in .au3 format, it works.  The moment I build it as .a3x, it fails.
      ;#include <tourney_mymain.a3x> #include <tourney_mymain.au3> _MyMainFunc() The file tourney_mymain.au3 exists in the same folder, and the header looks like this

      Any ideas would be appreciated.  This is a new pet project of mine and this is just the start, so I am willing to zip ALL of it and send it along if anyone wants to see inside.
      Thanks.

      This thread will focus on the scripts that write/execute bash scripts, and return the data (whereas my other thread is more just a spit sink).  Currently you are relegated to piping to a file from the bash script, hopefully there are other options coming.
      This AutoIt script writes a bash script containing an fdupes command based off the Directory you want to search, and whether or not you want it to recurse.  It writes the script in Temp, runs it, writes the stdout to a file in Temp, then parses that file and returns you an array.
      * You need to sudo apt-get install fdupes for this to work, btw.  fdupes is stupid fast at what it does and being able to leverage linux features, not hunt down a windows equivalent, is great fun.
