AutoIT with Windows 10

20 posts in this topic

Hello.

Anyone suffering from some Bugs on Windows 10 when using AutoIT?

I've seen some. 

Currently, I'm working a way around this:

$oIE = _IECreate("intranet.website.net", 1, 1, 0) ;works
WinSetState("[CLASS:IEFrame]","",@SW_MAXIMIZE) ;works
Local $oForms = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE) ; <--- crash

Console says:

--> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Warning from function _IEAttach, $_IESTATUS_NoMatch
"C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3" (1784) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
Return SetError($_IESTATUS_Success, 0, $oObject.document)
Return SetError($_IESTATUS_Success, 0, $oObject^ ERROR

 

Same code on a windows 7 and 8 works.

Adding a COM error handler won't fix the fact that _IECreate fails with $_IESTATUS_NoMatch.

Edit:

Seems like the issue is that the page isn't loaded before the call to _IEFormGetCollection. Adding a call to _IELoadWait seems to solve it.

Yep, it's clarifying, thanks a lot, but not the issue, I think... I've had a debug line for every command on my script before just to make sure.

I also had to go through this problem before: 
https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/137279-ieau3-wend-error/ 

Adding a COM error handler won't fix the fact that _IECreate fails with $_IESTATUS_NoMatch.

Yup.

Weird thing that it works perfectly in the same AIT version, on W7 and W8, all with IE11.

I had already tried that too. 

It crashes somewhere else:

 

$oIE = _IECreate("intranet.site.net", 1, 1, 0)
local $Teste1 = _IELoadWait($oIE)
ConsoleWrite("Output from IELOADWAIT is " & @error & @CRLF)


ConsoleWrite says:

 

--> Press Ctrl+Alt+F5 to Restart or Ctrl+Break to Stop
--> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Warning from function _IEAttach, $_IESTATUS_NoMatch
--> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IESTATUS_ClientDisconnected (-2147023179, Browser has been deleted prior to operation.)
Output from IELOADWAIT is 9

Looks like the site decided you have no rights to look at it.

Hmmm that's what this means? I didn't really know what it was. Thought it was the IE UDF acting up...

Does anyone know why that happens?

Local $ieLoadWait = _IELoadWait($oIE)
MsgBox(0, "Cod Error", @error)

 

MsgBox says 4:

Success: 1. 
Failure: 0 and sets the @error flag to non-zero. 
@error: 1 ($_IEStatus_GeneralError) - General Error
3 ($_IEStatus_InvalidDataType) - Invalid Data Type
4 ($_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType) - Invalid Object Type
6 ($_IEStatus_LoadWaitTimeout) - Load Wait Timeout
8 ($_IEStatus_AccessIsDenied) - Access Is Denied
9 ($_IEStatus_ClientDisconnected) - Client Disconnected 
@extended: Contains invalid parameter number 

 

 

Why Invalid Object Type?

What's the actual URL you are using in _IECreate? Does the site redirect you from non-secure (HTTP) to secure (HTTPS)?

Yeah, Dan. Its an intranet site for the Citrix Environment. Even if I call as a http://, it automatically turns to https://

I suggest trying an _IEAttach after the initial site is opened. I believe that will solve the issue of the object becoming invalid or going out of scope.

so, I think you need initially use url like this:

$oIE = _IECreate("https://intranet.site.net", 1, 1, 0)

Hello, guys.

Thanks for the help!

$oIE = _IECreate("https://intranet.site.net", 1, 1, 0)

Sleep(100)

$oIE = _IEAttach("Citrix Access Gateway - Internet Explorer") ;title copied from AU3Info
MsgBox(0, "Cod Error1", @error)

Local $ieLoadWait = _IELoadWait($oIE)
MsgBox(0, "Cod Error2", @error)

Exit

I did what you suggested (and some other things too). Still can't seem to get past the IELoadWait errors. Usually they return 4 or 3 from my tests.

For this one in the code up there: 

cod error1, it returns me 7,
7 ($_IEStatus_NoMatch) - No Match

cod error2 returns me 3.
3 ($_IEStatus_InvalidDataType) - Invalid Data Type
 

I didn't know that working with IE was so hard haha

This is telling you the the _IEAttach failed. You might try shortening the title text (ie: "Citrix Access Gateway") to see if that make a difference. You need to have error checking throughout your script because when one function fails (_IEAttach) then is doesn't make sense to continue with other commands (_IELoadWait) that depend on the earlier functions success.

Dan,

I just found out that it works on Win7. I might just end this script and put to run on a W7. I don't really know why, but the function (in a clean script) works on W7 and doesn't on W10.

But I'll continue posting the results here, until I find a proper solution.

But I can say that a bunch of funcions in the IE UDF doesn't work on W10. Maybe the author should be notified, I think it's worth to look into.

try this:

#include <IE.au3>
Local $oIE = _IECreate("https://intranet.website.net")
If IsObj($oIE) Then
    WinSetState("[CLASS:IEFrame]", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
    Local $oForms = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE)
If IsObj($oForms) Then
    ;the rest of your code
Else
Msgbox(0,'','error oforms')
EndIf
Else
Msgbox(0,'','error oIE')
EndIf

Read the parameters for _IECreate.  The first parameter if set to 1 will try and match a window, you don't want this.  Thats why your getting the 'No match' because yes, it didn't match any existing windows because the window doesn't exist.

I'm not sure if it's OS related.

I've got a lot of issues with the IE UDF on Windows 10 but also have issues for Windows Server 2008 R2. (Both of these are running IE11)

I don't have these issues on IE9 (tested on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7).
It also works flawlessly on IE8 (tested on Windows XP)

 

The wierd thing is that it does sometimes work flawlessly on IE11 but often fails miserably and crashes. (without any changes on my side)

Functions such as _IEGetObjByName are unreliable.

_IEGetObjByName($oIE, "unit1")

Errorlog:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3" (1875) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
If IsObj($oObject.document.GetElementsByName($sName).item($iIndex)) Then
If IsObj($oObject.document^ ERROR


Even _IENavigate doesn't always work properly. (this function does work most of the time though)
I'm currently using $oIE.navigate($url) as a workaround. It seems to work better for some unknown reason.

It would be awesome if the author could take a look but for now, i'll be downgrading to an older version of IE.

I suppose you are using AutoIt 3.3.14.x
It is know bug, and I hope this will be fixed in next Beta/Release.

Please provide any example for your _IENavigate issue.

Which one "older version of IE.au3" do you mean ?

      When I want to test Example 1 of Function _IECreate (AutoIt Help File), I see that function _IECreate doesn't work in Windows 10.
      Syntax Check (Ctrl+F5) gives no errors.
       
      Example 1:
      ; Create a browser window and navigate to a website #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("www.autoitscript.com")  
      The error I receive with F5 (Tools, Go) in SciTE:

      The DriveGetDrive command returned all drives (option "ALL") for years now and my program could always rely on that function. Suddenly a drive letter that was created with the subst command does not appear in the list of drives anymore. And it clearly did, because I used to react to a certain subst command by reacting to new or revoked (subst /D) drive letters.
      Why is that? I think this a bug because there's no way left to list ALL drive letters anymore.
      And why should I use an API command for that when this was already built in for years?

      I'm making a program that has a combo control in a gui and back in win7 when the window was focused the scroll wheel could be used to scroll through it's contents, now i'm using win10 and i have to put the mouse on that control to scroll up and down.
      Since now the scroll wheel works depending on where the mouse is, is there a way to make it no matter where on the gui the pointer is?
      Also if the only way to do it is some complex hotkey functions will it work with pressing space to toggle a checkbox?
      If you need to see what i have so far let me know and i'll copy it here.

      Hello,
      In Windows 10 PowerShell, one can do this to change the metric for a NIC in Windows 10:
      Get-NetAdapter | Where-Object -FilterScript {$_.InterfaceAlias -Eq "Ethernet 2"} | Set-NetIPInterface -InterfaceMetric 2 I know I can script the above PowerShell line (and it works!), but I wanted to try something I hadn't done before after looking into jguinch's most excellent Network configuration UDF. I wanted to make use of the SetIPConnectionMetric method in the WMI classes. There is an example VBscript here but this is not for Windows 10. Using AutoIT would also give better control over capturing error return codes than with PowerShell.
      But I cannot get my script to work! The return from SetIPConnectionMetric() is 0, which would indicate success. Yet the change does not happen. I also tried WMI methods using .put_ but this fails.
      Anyone more experienced than I have ideas to make this work?
