How to use alternative to CType in Autoit?/Important Windows updates

Recommended Posts

Bester

Hello, 

i would like to ask for some help on how to write something like this in Autoit

If CType(update, WUApiLib.IUpdate3).BrowseOnly = True Then
    opt_updates = opt_updates + 1
 Else
    imp_updates = imp_updates + 1
 End If

I`m trying to find Important Windows updates only, but for some reason this code:

$ColNeeded = $objSearcher.Search("BrowseOnly=0 and IsInstalled=0 and IsHidden=0")

$update = $ColNeeded.Updates.Item($i - 1)

returns all update (important and optional) as important (even though BrowseOnly=0). I think i`m missing a reference to WUApi.DLL in my code but i couldn`t find anything else to help me :/

If someone could help me either by providing a Autoit alternative to 

CType(update, WUApiLib.IUpdate3).BrowseOnly = True

or another way to find only important Windows updates i would be very grateful.
Thank you

If anybody else got this problem of "BrowsOnly=0" not working and would like to do find only important updates for Windows i came up with this solution.
Hope it`s going to help someone:

 

$obj_search = ObjCreate("Microsoft.Update.Searcher")
    $obj_search.ServerSelection = 2
    $obj_search.Online = True

    ;looking for updates
    $obj_result = $obj_search.Search("IsInstalled=0 and IsHidden=0") ;you can change this to something else (BrowsOnly=0 will not work)
    $obj_updates = $obj_result.Updates

    For $i = 0 To $obj_updates.Count - 1
        $obj_categories = $obj_updates.Item($i).Categories
        $s_Cat = ""
        $s_Cat = $obj_categories.Item(0).Name
        If $s_Cat <> "Updates" Or $s_Cat <> "Drivers" Or $s_Cat <> "Feature Packs" Then
            ;!!-- Important updates only --!!
            $array[0][0] += 1
            $array[$array[0][0]][0] = $obj_updates.Item($i).Title
            $array[$array[0][0]][1] = $s_Cat
            $array[$array[0][0]][2] = Round($obj_updates.Item($i).MaxDownloadSize / 1024)
            $array[$array[0][0]][3] = 1 ;to indicate important updates in array
        Else
            ;!!-- All Optional updates --!!
            $array[0][0] += 1
            $array[$array[0][0]][0] = $obj_updates.Item($i).Title
            $array[$array[0][0]][1] = $s_Cat
            $array[$array[0][0]][2] = Round($obj_updates.Item($i).MaxDownloadSize / 1024)
        EndIf

    Next
    ReDim $array[$array[0][0] + 1][5]

      I have an array of subarrays, eg:
      local $a[3] = [ 1, 2, 3 ] local $b[3] = [ 4, 5, 6 ] local $c[2] = [ $a, $b ] I can read read a subarray element of the array, as follows:
      local $c12 = ($c[1])[2] ; result: $c12 = 6 However, when I try to set a subarray element as follows, it fails:
      ($c[1])[2] = 12 ; this fails to set subarray element local $c12 = ($c[1])[2] ; result: $c12 = 6 How to set a subarray element ?
      Thanks

      Good morning everyone, I thought I had already solved this issue but it turns out I did not. 
      My code finds unread emails with this specific subject line of "request" but when I change the subject to SKIPPED + "request" = ("SKIPPED request") the program still finds the email and tries to process it. I only want to process emails with the exact match subject of "request".
      Here is my code that "finds" the unread emails with the subject of "request" or so I thought. 
      Func ListUnreadEmails() ;******************************************************************************* ; Lists all unread E-mails from the folder Outlook-UDF-Test ;******************************************************************************* ; Stores all the unRead emails into an array Global $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, "*\Outlook-UDF-Test", $olMail, _ "[UnRead]=True", "Subject", "request", "EntryID,Subject", "", 1) ; Displays the array of unRead emails If IsArray($aItems) Then ;_ArrayDisplay($aItems, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind - Unread mails") Else MsgBox(48, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind Example Script", _ "Could not find an unread mail. @error = " & @error & ", @extended: " & @extended) EndIf ; Gets the number of unread emails Global $numberOfUnRead = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) - 1 ;MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails", $numberOfUnRead) EndFunc It acts as if any part of the subject containing the word "request" and the email is unread that it will try to process it. (I think)

      Good afternoon, I am in need of some help. I am sure this is a stupid question requiring only one or two lines of code. However, I would greatly appreciate the help I cannot figure this out. I also tried searching for the answer on the internet but no one except me apparently seems to be having a hard time figuring this out and or is asking about it. 
      I simply want to change the "status" of an email from unread to read once I have processed it. My code is over 500 lines and I would like not to clutter this post with it. Assume I have all my includes and connections properly defined and stuff. 
      Here is the bit of code where I am trying to change the email that was used from unread to read:
      Func ChangeEmailStatus() ;******************************************************************************* ; changes the status of an email from unread to Read ;******************************************************************************* Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (Before Change)", $iRows) _OL_ItemModify($oOutlook,$aItems[$i][0], Default, "Read=True") MsgBox("", "Array Display 1", $aItems[1][0]) MsgBox("", "Array Display 2", $aItems[2][0]) Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (After Change)", $iRows) EndFunc
