Scheduled Task - Script Won't Finish

Recommended Posts

First the Situation:

I'm trying to automate an image uploading utility which lives on the client side of some cloud based server/client software and which was not designed to be automated. I've got a 2012 R2 VM running with autologon enabled on a local account.  The account with autologon enabled has a scheduled task set up to run at 4AM daily.  This task merely runs my AutoIt script.

Now the issue:

If I remote into my VM and run the script manually, it runs perfectly. If I edit my scheduled task to run only a few minutes in the future, and then reboot the VM, it also works perfectly. If I leave it to run overnight, the script starts but never finishes. It seems to be getting hung up waiting for the first window to become active. I've tried many version of the script now with no luck.  The latest version is below.

#include <File.au3>

Dim $un = "username"
Dim $pw = "password"

; Login window
Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\CSI Software\Spectrum NG\Spectrum NG Client\SNGImageUploader.exe")
Dim $hLogin = WinWait("[CLASS:WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.2bf8098_r11_ad1]", "Version: ")
SendKeepActive($hLogin)
WinActivate($hLogin)
Send($un & "{TAB}" & $pw & "{ENTER}")
SendKeepActive("")

; Main window - 1/3
Dim $hMain = WinWaitActive("SNG Image Uploader")
SendKeepActive($hMain)
Send("{TAB}{ENTER}")
SendKeepActive("")

; File browser window
Dim $hBrowse = WinWaitActive("Browse For Folder")
SendKeepActive($hBrowse)
Send("{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{RIGHT}{DOWN}")
Sleep(2000)  ; Give the program moment to detect images in the directory
Send("{ENTER}")
SendKeepActive("")

; Main window - 2/3
SendKeepActive($hMain)
WinWaitActive($hMain)
Send("{TAB}{ENTER}")
SendKeepActive("")

; Upload complete window
Dim $hUpload = WinWaitActive("[CLASS:#32770]", "Upload complete. Please wait while servers process your request.")
SendKeepActive($hUpload)
Send("{ENTER}")
SendKeepActive("")

; Import complete window
Dim $hImport = WinWaitActive("[CLASS:#32770]", "Image import completed. Please check results in the Account Upload History screen.")
SendKeepActive($hImport)
Send("{ENTER}")
SendKeepActive("")

; Main window - 3/3
WinWaitActive($hMain)
WinClose($hMain)

; Cleanup
FileDelete("C:\CRPics\*")

I've added extensive logging to my script.  Here's the new version:

#include <File.au3>

Dim $un = "username"
Dim $pw = "password"

Dim $flog = FileOpen("C:\Users\CRPics\Desktop\SendCRPics.log", 1);
_FileWriteLog($flog, "")

_FileWriteLog($flog, "Running SNGImageUploader")
Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\CSI Software\Spectrum NG\Spectrum NG Client\SNGImageUploader.exe")
_FileWriteLog($flog, "Waiting for the login window to exist")
Dim $hLogin = WinWait("[CLASS:WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.2bf8098_r11_ad1]", "Version: ")
_FileWriteLog($flog, "Attempting to keep the login window active")
SendKeepActive($hLogin)

FileDelete("C:\CRPics\*")

FileClose($flog);

Maybe it helps when you also share the result of your logging? ;)

In general: Send() will not work when ran with the scheduler so you need to find a way to use CtrlSend()

Odd that it works when I schedule it for just a few minutes into the future then.  I'll post tomorrow when I get the log results.  I tried using ControlSend() in at least one version of the script, but I couldn't get it to work for the username/password boxes on the login screen.  Granted I'm a total novice, so I'll try again if I don't figure something else out really quick after looking at the log in the morning.

Oops - I forgot to restart the VM.  I left it logged into an RDP session all night.  The good news is it finished successfully, but it's not a good test of a typical run situation.  I played around a bit more with ControlSend() yesterday, and I think I'm getting it figured out, so I'm going to change the script to get rid of all the calls to Send().

I got it working. The key was to switch to ControlSend() away from Send() as suggested. Thank you Jos. Here's the latest, hopefully final, version:

#include <File.au3>

Dim $un = "username"
Dim $pw = "password"

; Login window
Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\CSI Software\Spectrum NG\Spectrum NG Client\SNGImageUploader.exe")
Dim $hLogin = WinWait("[CLASS:WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.2bf8098_r11_ad1]", "Version: ")
ControlSend($hLogin, "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.2bf8098_r11_ad1; INSTANCE:1]", $un & "{TAB}")
Sleep(1000)
ControlSend($hLogin, "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.EDIT.app.0.2bf8098_r11_ad1; INSTANCE:1]", $pw)
Sleep(1000)
ControlClick($hLogin, "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.Window.8.app.0.2bf8098_r11_ad1; INSTANCE:4]")

; Main window - 1/3
Dim $hMain = WinWait("SNG Image Uploader")
ControlClick($hMain, "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.2bf8098_r11_ad1; INSTANCE:6]")

; File browser window
Dim $hBrowse = WinWait("Browse For Folder")
Sleep(10000)
ControlSend($hBrowse, "", "[CLASS:SysTreeView32; INSTANCE:1]", "{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{DOWN}{RIGHT}{DOWN}")
Sleep(2000)  ; Wait for the program to read the image directory
ControlClick($hBrowse, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]")
Sleep(2000)

; Main window - 2/3
ControlClick($hMain, "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.2bf8098_r11_ad1; INSTANCE:5]")

; Upload complete window
Dim $hUpload = WinWait("[CLASS:#32770]", "Upload complete. Please wait while servers process your request.")
ControlClick($hUpload, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")

; Import complete window
Dim $hImport = WinWait("[CLASS:#32770]", "Image import completed. Please check results in the Account Upload History screen.")
ControlClick($hImport, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]")

; Main window - 3/3
WinClose($hMain)

; Cleanup
FileDelete("C:\CRPics\*")

      Purpose (from Microsoft's website)
      The HTTP Server API enables applications to communicate over HTTP without using Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS). Applications can register to receive HTTP requests for particular URLs, receive HTTP requests, and send HTTP responses. The HTTP Server API includes SSL support so that applications can exchange data over secure HTTP connections without IIS.
      Description
      There have been several times in the past that I wanted to either retrieve information from one of my PCs or execute commands on one of my PCs, whether it was from across the world or sitting on my couch.  Since AutoIt is one of my favorite tools for automating just about anything on my PC, I looked for ways to make to make it happen.  Setting up a full blown IIS server seemed like overkill so I looked for lighter weight solutions.  I though about creating my own AutoIt UDP or TCP server but that just wasn't robust enough,  Then I found Microsoft's HTTP Server API and it looked very promising.  After doing a little research into the APIs, I found that it was flexible & robust enough to handle just about any of the tasks that I required now and in the future.  So a while back I decided to wrap the API functionality that I needed into an AutoIt UDF file to allow me to easily create the functionality I needed at the time.  It has come in very handy over the years.  Of course it wasn't all wrapped up with a nice little bow like it is now.  That only happened when I decided to share it with anyone else who could use it or learn from it.
      The example file that I included is a very granular example of the steps required to get a lightweight HTTP Server up and listening for GET requests.  The UDF is a wrapper for the Microsoft APIs.  That means to do anything over and above what I show in the example, one would probably have to have at least a general knowledge of APIs or the ability to figure out which APIs/functions to use, what structures and data is needed to be passed to them, and in what order.  However, the UDF gives a very solid foundation on which to build upon.  Of course, if anyone has questions about the UDF or how to implement any particular functionality, I would probably help to the extent that I could or point you in the right direction so that you can figure out how to implement your own solution.
      The APIs included in the UDF are the ones that I needed in the past to do what I needed to do.  If any additional APIs need to be added to the UDF file, please make those suggestions in the related forum topic.
      Being that this is basically an AutoIt wrapper for the Microsoft API functions, there's no need to create AutoIt-specific documentation.  All of the UDF functions, structures, constants, and enumerations are named after their Microsoft API counterparts.  Therefore, you can refer to Microsoft's extensive documentation of their HTTP Server API.  As stated earlier, if there is one or more APIs that you find yourself needing for your particular solution, please suggest it in the related Example Scripts forum topic.

      Hello Guys and AutoIt Scriptwriters!🎉❤️
      I've created a script to notify to me if RDP main IP changed then send a message via Telegram bot to me
      But some of my RDP's Main IP are @IPAddress1 or @IPAddress3 or Public IP Address...
      I want to detect automatically the IP that windows client can run RDP to remotely control
      This image can help you that what i say, there are three RDP with specified IP, i want to run script in these RDP's then capture those IP's changes then notify me via Telegram bot

      Hello,
      When new versions e.g. of your compiled script cannot be replaced on the server, as they are in use, you can use this script to manage to close the open handles and to replace the old file with your new version.
