# Newbie question regarding opening existing html files

## 5 posts in this topic

I am new at this and was hoping to use this tool to automatically open an existing html file in a browser and have the tool select a button to kick off an external script. This would be running during a build overnight so I can't be there to do so. Can this tool do this? I didn't see anything about opening existing files.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

I installed the beta version (3.1.1.84) and obtained the Au3Check syntax definition files in V1.46 and placed them in \program files\AutoIt3\SciTe\Au3Check as directed. When I attempted to run any of the examples you provided I get the following error message. Can you let me know what I am missing?

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3(275,39) : ERROR: ObjName(): undefined function.

Thanks, that worked great.

Next question, I need to get past some activeX warnings in the window that I am bringing up. Should I simply navigate them via the standard autoIt or should I be using the autItX app for this?
