autoit Run ("a.exe") and click on "OK" in popup windows, causes problem

5 posts in this topic

When I clicked on "OK" in pop-up windows, it will return error when I brought up windows-application from autoit "Run" function script, such as Run ("c:\a.exe").  Why?  Do I miss anything in Run function, e.g.     Run ("c:\a.exe")

any idea?

But when I ran my windows application "a.exe" manually and click on "OK" in pop-up windows, then it showed menu and did not return error.

When I ran the windows application manually without running from autoit script, the windows application came up with the "OK" popup window, then I clicked on "OK", it will display the menu GUI.

My AutoIt-script has only one statement as "Run ("C:\a.exe")", and just ran it.

But, if I ran the autoit script with the "Run ("c:\a.exe")" statement from Autoit SciTE-script-editor, my window-application came up with the "OK" pop-up windows.   When I clicked on "OK" in the pop-up windows, it returned in an error pop-up window, indicated that "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly, Please close the program" error message.   I did not have this problem when I run my window-application manually.

It seems to me that Run function in Autoit could not run my window-application properly and brought it up properly.  But I did not know how to fix it in autoit Run function.  Did I miss anything in Autoit scripting ?

After I added the working directory in Run function, as :

Run("C:\APP-test\TEST\APP.exe", "C:\APP-test\TEST", @SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED)

It works now and did not return any error or caused any problem.

Thanks for your help !!
