Inetget and InetRead don't recognize IE cookies on Windows 10 and so can't be used on password-protected sites

3 posts in this topic

Ever since I upgraded to Windows 10, scripts using Inetget and InetRead no longer seem to recognize Internet Explorer cookies. This makes them useless for websites that require you to be logged in to. Has there been some sort of change to IE cookies because of the upgrade and new Edge browser? Is there a way around this?

According to the help file you need to provide userid/password in the URL:

Quote

To use a username and password when connecting simply prefix the servername with "username:password@", e.g.
"http://myuser:mypassword@www.somesite.com"

      Hi Guys, 
      Since I'm able to get a Dell equipment warranty status thanks to my API key, I'm using an UDF to extract data from an XML file and get the end date. > 
      Thing is, when using InetGet, the original file is in JSON format and the UDF is not working anymore, even if I download the file with the xml extension. Therefore, and when I manually download the page with Chrome, I have a proper XML file where the UDF is working fine.
      Here's my code:
      I even tried to convert the json to xml > https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/185717-js-json-to-xml/
      I took a look here https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/104150-json-udf-library-fully-rfc4627-compliant/ but I don't understand anything :/
       
      The XML read UDF is just perfect for my needs but I'm stuck here... 
      Thanks for any help you can provide

      As the title says, does anyone know of a way to open the Windows 10 action center using AutoIt. Maybe via rundll or some other applet?
      My intention is to just hide the normal icon, then have an AutoIt system tray icon that will open the action center on click. And I can't just send the Win+A hotkey because I have it disabled. 
      Thanks for reading.

      Hi folks,
      I'm hoping someone can help me out here.
      Background:
      I have the need to run a program with admin credentials (#RequireAdmin), and then get the SID of the locally logged in account. Not the admin account.
      If you look at the attached script, Line 16 uses the @UserName variable and returns the SID for the admin account I used to launch the app.
      I want to use line 17 which passes the result of the _GetUsername function which is a username using  ($UserName) to the WMIService.
      I'm getting " The requested action with this object has failed.:" error message.
      Any suggestions would be appreciated!

      I’m wondering how to add a Windows Hello option to the additional PIN, Fingerprint, and Facial Recognition options? I'd like an interface that could be linked to the Windows Hello authentication system and AutoIt itself.
      I understand that this discussion did not meet the Forum Rules, I apologize about that. I'd like to point out that this post is asking for a way to attach into the Windows Hello service. I'd like to follow the same concept that YubiKey's interact with Windows Hello as seen here: https://www.yubico.com/2016/09/yubikey-works-windows-hello/.

      Hello all! 
      I am having a bit of trouble and was wondering if anyone may have a workaround for my issue. I made a script that would automatically install a piece of software each night on a Windows 7 Box. Now I have been instructed to do the same with a Windows 10 box since the application is now being tested on Windows 10. 
      The way I did the win7 installation was that I made a script and then made an executable that I call with a batch file along with the Installer. So the process is 
      AutoitMainFile calls batch file, batch file opens Installer, and the automatedinstaller.exe  The automatedinstlaller waits 10-20 seconds to make sure the Installer has been fully loaded.
      When I try to do the same both get loaded but the automatedinstallation.exe does not send commands to the installer. The code does work and nothing from the program we are wanting to install has changed as our Windows 7 runs every night no problem. 
       
      Do I need to make a new automatedinstall script for windows 10? 
      Any advice is appreciated 
      Thanks,
      Richard
