Help: Script to mount USB never exits

8 posts in this topic

WinWait("Login device DT4000","")
If Not WinActive("Login device DT4000","") Then WinActivate("Login device DT4000","")
WinWaitActive("Login device DT4000","")
Send("Password")
Send("{ENTER}")
WinWaitActive("My USB","")
Send("{ENTER}")
Sleep(2000)
Exit

I have a password protected USB that I want to auto login after mounting. The above script works but never closes. I have tried adding loops for closing when process is active, tried a win close if then loop etc, but nothing seems to work.

I tried making it a function and the script will then close, but it never passes the password into the "Login device DT4000".

 

So my questions are:

1. why will the above never close

2. If I add func LoginUSB() and endfunc, why are the send inputs not passed to the active window?

 

Thanks in advance

  1. I assume on one of the WinWaitActive() lines

Add 

Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1) ;0=no info, 1=debug line info

.. run the script and hover over the systrayicon to get the actual scriptline it is hanging on.

Its hanging by showing paused at line 15:

WinWaitActive("Login device DT4000","")

It sees the active window and passes in the commands, the window closes, it acknowledges the 2nd window which also closes, but the debug shows it hasn't exited from the first window for some reason

I tried adding a WinClose, but then it pauses at line 13:

WinWait("Login device DT4000","")

Here's what I added to try to force the first window to close:

Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1) ;0=no info, 1=debug line info
WinWait("Login device DT4000","")
If Not WinActive("Login device DT4000","") Then WinActivate("Login device DT4000","")
WinWaitActive("Login device DT4000","")
Send("Password")
Send("{ENTER}")
WinClose("Login device DT4000","")
WinWaitActive("My USB","")
Send("{ENTER}")
Sleep(2000)
Exit

I don't understand how its getting hung up on the first window

There are no 13 or 15 lines in your posted script. ;)

You probably also need to consider some sleep() statements between actions to give them time to process your send() commands.

Sorry about that, I cut out the default editor inputs:

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 AutoIt Version: 3.3.14.2
 Author:         myName



 Script Function:
    Template AutoIt script.

#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

; Script Start - Add your code below here
Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1) ;0=no info, 1=debug line info
WinWaitActive("Login device DT4000","")
Send("Password")
Sleep(2000)
Send("{ENTER}")
Sleep(2000)
WinClose("Login device DT4000","")
WinWaitActive("My USB","")
Send("{ENTER}")
Sleep(2000)
Exit

I tried adding sleep commands but to no avail. It keeps failing at line 13

WinWaitActive("Login device DT4000","")

I did notice that if I put any delay inside the WinWaitActive statement it never sees the window at all,

e.g.

WinWaitActive("Login device DT4000","",5)

without the delay it passes the information through. Its almost as if the script is looking for a different name, or the window has a different name than what the AU3Info window says it is called

Instead of using WinWaitActive, you could try with WinWait, and use ControlSend instead of Send.

Since you have WinWait() you know the window is there before proceeding.  You can then just put WinActivate() right after.  No reason to have a 2nd wait in the script when it already met the first prerequisite.

Thanks for all your help guys, but none of these seem to work. I think there must be something strange about this window.  I even  recorded a macro and that never closes either
