Odd error saving a file in Windows 10

4 posts in this topic

Having migrated my PC across to W10, I am getting an odd behaviour when executing a script that works perfectly under W7... Wondered if anyone else had come across this:

So, my script runs an external program called Deep Sky Planner. It opens two reports to calculate positions in the night sky for each of the 8 planets, plus the Moon and Sun. It then saves each of these reports as a HTML file, and a PDF file. I upload these to my astronomical societies web-site. One report is a set of basic data, then a more detailed one is run.

Each report is named with the month-year-object, so 1015Venus.html or 1015Sun_det.pdf

Under W7 (64bit), no problem. On my W10 machine, the change of the filename to be saved is not recognised by the 'Save As' dialogue box, even though the new file name is clearly there in the text edit box! So, I get an error saying that the file already exists!

I've attached a picture of the dialog box error so you can see what I mean.

I've also attached my code (feel free to rip this apart :) )

Has anyone else seen this? Any suggestions??

 

Thanks
Daz

AstronomerDaz,

I would check that you are actually deleting the files in the "; Clear out any files that may have been run already for this month" section as it appears from your image that there is indeed an exisitng file of that name still present.

Hi,

Yes, the files are being deleted - most definitely.

What the image is showing is:

1 The file 1115Sun.htm is NOT the name of the file being saved - The file being saved is 1115Mercury.htm. 1115Sun was saved on the first iteration of the loop

2. The background shows the console of the editor - where I print out the names of each report to be saved as a debug, so I can see the file name is being generated correctly

 

The filename 115Mercury.htm is being entered into the File Name box in the dialog, but the dialog box is not seeing it - it still thinks it is 1115Sun.html

AstronomerDaz,

My apologies - I can only blame the small screen I was using earlier - and my old eyes!

Looking at this function (which appears to be the source of the problem)

Func ExportHTML (ByRef $object , $type)

   local $in=$savePath & $object, $out=""
   local $varSave

   $varSaveLabel=$varSaveHTMLLabel



   if $type = "B" then
   $in = $in & ".htm"
   Else
      $in = $in & "_det.htm"
   Endif

   send("!feh")
   WinWaitActive($varSave)
   Do
      ControlSetText($varSaveLabel, "" , "[ID:1001]", $in)
      Sleep(500)
      ControlSetText($varSaveLabel, "" , "[ID:1001]", "")
      Sleep(500)
      ControlSetText($varSaveLabel, "" , "[ID:1001]", $in)
      Sleep(500)
      $out=ControlGetText($varSaveLabel, "", "[ID:1001]")
      If $in<>$out Then
         ConsoleWrite("HTML path does not match - rewriting" & @CRLF)
         Exit
      EndIf

   Until $in=$out
   ControlClick($varSaveLabel, "", "[ID:1]")

EndFunc

I am struck by 2 things:

  1. You do not declare a value for $varSave and yet you use it in the WinWaitActive command.
  2. Are you sure the Control IDs you are using are the same in the Win10 dialog as they obviously were in Win 7?

Either of those might be causing a problem.

      Hello,
      I'm having some problems with SciTe, when I copy and paste, select text, or etc., there's sometimes text blinking(not the cursor, but the whole text!), or black lines, they blink(like cursor do).

      When I reinstalled AutoIt all SciTe settings were left, and when I open up scite editor, I had same problem. (Btw., I use theme)

      How to fully uninstall AutoIT and SciTE, and install it again without leaving any settings or etc.?

       
      Solved: System restore helped me...

      Hello all,
      Long story short: I am updating a program I created many years ago for our Help Desk. I haven't used AutoIt in a while so I downloaded it again. Of course there were several script breaking changes so I opted to download an older version of AutoIt (3.3.8.1) which worked. However when downloading the full Scite it produces the attached error when trying to compile my script. I need the full version of Scite to compile with options. Is it possible to download older versions of Scite or is there an easy fix for this issue? I have attempted reinstalling, uninstalling/rebooting/reinstalling to no avail.
      Thanks!

      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.

      Weird story. Been using Autoit for more than a year now. But recently moved to a new machine, so did a fresh install, and suddenly I saw menus I never saw before in the editor.
      For example, I Always used to have: Tools>Compile and then it would compile my au3 code. Now, the tools menu has a lot of options but after pressing Compile it goes to a whole new screen specifically for au3 code to select more options, also it debugs my code, which prevents compiling if badly coded.
      Of course this is fine, but I would really like to recompile some old crappy code I wrote, regardless of the mistakes that are still in there, also I am really used to the old setup I had,
      so kind of not done, but how do i get this 'bad'  configuration back? Does it have to do with the au3.properties file? What should I do with it....
      Thanks

      Hi,
      After I updated SciTE to v3.6.6, whenever I write a fold-able line (e.g. Do, For, While) SciTE will unfold all the code below it by it self.
      Before writing "While" at the beginning of the script:

       
      after writing While:

       
      Is this normal? if yes, can I stop it?
