hi am new and i just started learning autoit
am starting to do a little program that can help me in my work
i dont know how to do it correctly : a combobox that shows what com port are connected to devices in the computer and when i choose a port and click on a button called info_port i want that he desplay in $result the name of the device connected to the choosen com port.
i want to use this file to help me : CommMG.au3
#include 'CommMG.au3' ;comm ports library Global $result = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 364, 135, 568, 595) Global $info_port = GUICtrlCreateButton("Info", 291, 85, 56, 25) Global $Port = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 150, 85, 135, 24) $portlist = _CommListPorts(0) If Not @error = 1 Then For $pl = 1 To $portlist GUICtrlSetData($Port, $portlist[$pl]) Next EndIf While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg
Recently I was looking for a way to set DefaultInboundAction and DefaultOutboundAction for Windows firewall
First I tried 'netsh.exe advfirewall set allprofiles firewallpolicy blockinbound,blockoutbound'
However, it turns out group policy overrides these settings.
I then went looking for a way to set the Firewall group policy and the best I could find was making a policy and copying it to the system32\grouppolicy folder and then running gpupdate.exe /force
Instead of relying on such a rigid procedure I instead decided to parse the Registry.pol file and change the values within.
This code has only been tested on W7x64
The example as supplied sets the domain profile firewall off the sets it back to the previous settings after you click the message box
There are several options:
Func SetGroupPolicy_Firewall($iSetting, $iValue, $sPath, $sProfile = "")
Setting=0 Enable disable firewall , $iValue=0 Disable, $iValue=1 Enable
Setting=1 DefaultInboundAction, $iValue=0 Allow, $iValue=1 Block
Setting=2 DefaultOutboundAction, $iValue=0 Allow, $iValue=1 Block
Profile ="" SET ALL PROFILES
The profile can also be defined
Beware $iValue is only configured for 0 and 1 values there are a few more options on the inbound and outbound settings that I haven't given a way to set, so in this case you may need to copy back the registy.pol.bak file to revert to your previous settings
It doesn't seem to have any issues on reverting back to original settings if Block all Exceptions or NotConfigured are set It just won't work which in my case is acceptable
It wouldn't be too hard to add code to make these work as well:
"[SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsFirewall\DomainProfile" & CHRW(0) & ";DefaultInboundAction" & CHRW(0) & ";" & CHRW(4) & CHRW(0) & ";" & CHRW(4) & CHRW(0) & $iValue & CHRW(0) & "]" ;And Again for: ;[SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsFirewall\DomainProfile;DoNotAllowExceptions;;;] Do note that these would need to be added for each profile. Domain;Public;Private.
These locations do refer to actual registry locations but I haven't figured out a way to get those to change the group policy.
If you run into problems or make improvements let me know
a backup is saved as C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\Registry.pol.bak just in case

I want to write a script to toggle the opening and closing of a pdf file.
For example if i have a flie called myFile.pdf I want the script to open/load it. However if myFile.pdf is open then i want the same script to close it.
Could someone please tell me how I can know if the pdf file is open/loaded?

I'm trying to install AutoIT on a [Windows 2003] machine that has restricted access - I can't install any files, nor can I request or access Administrator rights.
So far I've tried installing AutoIT on another machine (into a folder called AutoIt-Transfer), zipping that file, and unzipping it on the Windows 2003 virtual machine. It does work, however it doesn't work well. There are many restrictions - MsgBox does not work for example.
Does anyone know of a workaround? For example, does AutoIT install files to the Windows directory? Maybe I can just copy/paste them in there?
