Script broke after IE9 -> IE11 upgrade

Recommended Posts

I just took over maintenance of our script used to collect information from newly deployed machines.  I have basic programming knowledge, but this is my first dive into AutoIT.

After we upgraded our machines to IE 11, the script stalls at a certain point and no longer proceeds. I'll include the section of code below that it stalls at and throws the error. Hopefully this is enough information.

Func encryption02()
    $hwindow = ""
    $pcondition1 = ""
    $pcondition2 = ""
    $plink = ""
    $olink = ""
    $pcondition = ""
    $ouielementarray = ""
    $puielementarray = ""
    $ielements = ""
    Local $hwindow = WinGetHandle("User Client")
    If Not $hwindow Then Return ConsoleWrite("Window handle ERR" & @CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite("Window handle OK" & @CRLF)
    Local $ouiautomation = ObjCreateInterface($sclsid_cuiautomation, $siid_iuiautomation, $dtagiuiautomation)
    If Not IsObj($ouiautomation) Then Return ConsoleWrite("UI Automation object ERR" & @CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite("UI Automation object OK" & @CRLF)
    Local $pwindow, $owindow
    $ouiautomation.elementfromhandle($hwindow, $pwindow)
    $owindow = ObjCreateInterface($pwindow, $siid_iuiautomationelement, $dtagiuiautomationelement)
    If Not IsObj($owindow) Then Return ConsoleWrite("Automation element from window ERR" & @CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite("Automation element from window OK" & @CRLF)
    Local $pcondition
    $ouiautomation.createpropertycondition($uia_controltypepropertyid, $uia_editcontroltypeid, $pcondition)
    If Not $pcondition Then Return ConsoleWrite("Property condition ERR" & @CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite("Property condition OK" & @CRLF)
    Local $puielementarray, $ouielementarray, $ielements
    $owindow.findall($treescope_descendants, $pcondition, $puielementarray)
    $ouielementarray = ObjCreateInterface($puielementarray, $siid_iuiautomationelementarray, $dtagiuiautomationelementarray)
    If Not $ielements Then Return ConsoleWrite("Find edit elements ERR" & @CRLF)

    ConsoleWrite("Find all edit elements OK. Elements: " & $ielements & @CRLF)
    Local $pedit, $oedit, $sname, $oproperedit
    For $i = 0 To $ielements - 1
        $ouielementarray.getelement($i, $pedit)
        $oedit = ObjCreateInterface($pedit, $siid_iuiautomationelement, $dtagiuiautomationelement)
        $oedit.getcurrentpropertyvalue($uia_namepropertyid, $sname)
        ConsoleWrite("Name of edit element " & $i & ": " & $sname & @CRLF)
        If StringInStr($sname, "Encrypting (") Then
            If StringInStr($sname, "Encrypting (80") Then
            MsgBox(0, $sesltitle01, "EXITING: Computer is still encrypting: " & $sname)


This throws the "Find edit elements ERR" into the console and stalls out at this point. Please advise if more information is needed.


Thank you in advance for your time and looking at this!

Anticipating Errors :  "Any program that accepts data from a user must include code to validate that data before sending it to the data store. You cannot rely on the data store, ...., or even your programming language to notify you of problems. You must check every byte entered by your users, making sure that data is the correct type for its field and that required fields are not empty."
