Hi all,

I have a 1080p screen, after I upgraded to windows 10 AutoIt (and AutoIt window Info) detects my screen as if it was 1536*864. I checked and the screen resolution on display proprieties and it was 1920x1080

All the scripts with mouse movements I wrote before work for a 1080p screen do not work anymore... Anybody cn help me solving this?

 

Thanks in advance

Thanks but for the script I designed I can't. It's just a screen resolution error is there any way I can input the screen resolution with autoit?

Is that for a game?

it's for a scraper on a website that can only be explored with mouse clicks (too many bot security controls). My script is meant to copy-paste the values. 

Yes I could read the html code for the copy part but I would still need to click in order to browse between he pages. Also the script I have took me many days to write and works just fine. I just need to adjust the screen resolution.

I am also having this same issue. I have code that does data entry that about 150 people are using at my workplace. I had to use mouse clicks because the system we have to enter data into is resistant to using shortcut keys. Two users recently received a new computer. Now, even though their resolution is set to 1280x1024, AutoIt detects the screen size as 819x1024.

Any ideas?

If your script is specifically built for only x1080 res, why are you even bothering to looked at @screenheight and @screenwidth? 

 

Sounds suspect to me. If you're the one running the script, just force the values and be done with it.

I have an idea. In Win 7 example u have a settings.

Sry if i am not correct on words, but my win is not english so have no clue what is the correct english word for them in windows.

so check this:

Console / screen settings / to improve the readability of screen contents

Google translator FTW :D

You have a settings for 100% 125% and 150%. Maaaaaybe this is the problem. Like i said, i am just guessing.

Sry for my bad English, and double sry, but I am learning AutoIT language by myself. :)
