WinWait doesn't wait!

7 posts in this topic

I'm trying to write a script with winwait in it, but for some reason, winwait doesn't wait for the specified window to show up. It just goes trough the script launching all the commands one after the other. On one of my pc's the script works great, but on the other one I have the problem.

I'm new with AutoIT and I think that it's a great tool, but I really need some help with that.

Thanks

It may be easier to help if you showed some code.

You are using the same title...

WinWait("Uninstal")

Pick something that exclusively defines the next window...

example: WinWait("Uninstal","Select then folder")

Lar.

Both window have the exact same title...

Larry was trying to show you to set the "text" not the title.

Doesn't work, it does the same thing.

Here is my code :

***************************************************************************

Run("C:\\Winnt\\system32\\rundll32 nwsetup.dll NWUninstallClient")

WinWaitActive("Uninstal", "Are you sure you")

Send("y")

WinWaitActive("Uninstal", "You must shut down")

Send("n")

Sleep(2000)

Run("C:\\Program Files\\InstallShield Installation Information\\{F02DBC5D-33E3-45E9-B0F8-B7745229ED1C}\\Setup.exe -uninst")

WinWaitActive("NICI", "This will remove NICI")

Send("y")

WinWaitActive("NICI", "NICI U.S./")

Send("{ENTER}")

The text has to be exclusive to that menu. Use the Window Info Tool to find out what text is exclusive.
