I need to replace a desktop applications functionality. I'll call it App "A".
The application has defined 2 hot keys one that toggles between it and another window, App "B", and one that triggers keystrokes to App "B" to get data where App "A" can access it. Then tells app "A" to fire off processing of data.. Unfortunately when App "B" is a 64bit application this functionality no longer works.
For now I've hobbled together a work a round solution by using 2 apps with what appears to be similar abilities. AutoIt and a desktop application that allows me to define the 2 hot keys. The SutoItX Dll is great for my processes within App "A" as it uses VBA for event driven tasks.
The second app allows me to define the Hot keys and which windows they belong to.
My fail is on how to use AutoIT to define the hot Keys and link to specific windows.
So as I see this working:
App "A" launches and fires off internal VBA code that in turn sets up HotKeys. If App "B" is not found code shuts down without enabling the hotkeys.
A hot key of CTRL-F1 toggles, activates window, back and forth between App "A and "B" So the hotkey is captured only when either App "A" or "B" is currently the active focus. and swaps the active focus application window.
A hot key of CTRL-F2 from App "B", Send Key strokes to App "B" to place App "B" windows' content into windows clip board then switch to App "A" and send a keystroke, CTRL-F3, to trigger processing the clip board through App "A"'s normal event handlers. App "A" already knows that CTRL-F3 means to run custom VBA code to process the clipboard.
Any help would be appreciated here, thanks.
I see couple of ways to import module , one with specifying absolute path of the file to get imported, by this logic i believe to import a specific module will be like #include <c:\modulepath\duplicatemodule.au3>
but i see some registry changes also made in this link , can someone explain why that registry change is really required.
I am trying to execute a exe file in auto it as elevated previlage , but not successful till now . below are the methods i tried till now.
Disabled UAC access from windows and selected run only as administrator from executable properties. i logged in as administrator but still exe needs to launch as run as administrator.
Used Below methods from forum still no luck. anything i missing? i tried to use powershell.ps1 intead of exe as well.
1. Local $iPID = RunAs($sUserName, @ComputerName, $sPassword, $RUN_LOGON_NOPROFILE, "c:\Exec.exe", "", @SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED)
2. RunWait("C:\Automation\TestScripts\Writefilter.exe", @WindowsDir, @SW_MAXIMIZE) - Std out error
This command gives out put as running with admin rights
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #RequireAdmin Example() Func Example() ; Change the username and password to the appropriate values for your system. Local $sUserName = "Admin" Local $sPassword = "PASSWORD" Local $iPID = RunAs($sUserName, @ComputerName, $sPassword, 0, "noetpad.exe", "", @SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED) ; Run Notepad with the window maximized. Notepad is run under the user previously specified. ;~ RunWait(@WindowsDir & "C:\automation\TestScripts\Writefilter.exe", @WindowsDir, @SW_MAXIMIZE) EndFunc
I have below code which execute well when all prerequisite met, when window pop up is not available its throwing an error. i want to capture error instead of error out.
error handling added in the code to capture it but it does not work still giving me error saying Variable must be of type "Object".
$oCurWin.FindAll($treescope_subtree, $oCondition, $pElements)
How to catch error properly .
I have to execute below block of code in elevated previllage, as that particular wmic class will work only with admin previlage.
i am getting out put when i launch autoit as administrator, but i will not be able to launch autoit as admin in this particular case but my user have admin rights.
is there any better way i can run those command as administrator.?
tried below steps:
i have tried #RequireAdmin but that creates a user prompt Tried using Runas command but gives error as wrong username or password , stuck with that step.
