I have written a script in autoit for automation. It is scheduled and running on server but i have noticed it stops at some points. But when i am taking remote of server and running it runs fine. Is it problem of winActivate() or winWaitActivate() or any other method which i am using, is only run when screen is activated? If this is the may i get list of those methods and alternative of the same. I need alternative of winActivate() and winWaitActivate() methods. Any document or link is welcome. Please help ...

I am not able to fetch id of all GUI components through "auto it info" tool so i have used  send() method. Is there any other way to achieve the same will be helpful for me. And may i get where it is documented that Send() commands will not function in a scheduled program.

And what about  winActivate() or winWaitActivate()  methods. Any alternate?

I don't think such documentation exists.  There is a blurb in the help file for the function that mentions a couple of scenarios in which Send is unreliable or doesn't work.  Running as a scheduled task isn't one of them; however...I think this issue is more of a imposition of the OS rather than a limitation of the Autoit function.  Specifically in regards to Scheduled Tasks, I believe It has to do with whether or not process are running interactively.  If your script relies on manipulating an interactive GUI it won't be able to when the session/desktop is locked/disconnected.

      Ok so im using this program. clarify for school. I would like to have a program that takes every word i type in microsoft word and searches on it in claryfi. is this possible. I would like to have the program not stopping me from typing more after that word. Like when i type a word it auto search it on clarify without making me stop typing and if i want to change i can do that and if im fine that word i can just keep typing and it will search after the next word.

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.

      I need to open an application and send it keys in Session 0.  I have exe's working locally, I can see the application open in session 0 through interactive services, but my send commands do not go to the application.  The following article running-autoit-session-0, directs me to use ControlSend() however my application has no controls that can be identified by AutoIt v3 Window Info.  Get All Windows Controls also returned nothing for the application's handle.  
      What are my options?  
      Can this be done with AutoIt?
      Is there a different "relatively simple" library/tool to use? (I am familiar with C# if there is a viable library there )

      Hey all,
      Has anyone created any queries for youtube? I was thinking it might be something like this but can't quite figure it out:
      $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() _IENavigate($oIE,"https://www.youtube.com") Local $oForms = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "form") Local $sTxt = "" For $oForm In $oForms If $oForm.id = "masthead-search" Then $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input") For $oInput In $oInputs If $oInput.id = "masthead-search-term" Then _IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "cards") _IEFormSubmit($oForm) EndIf Next EndIf Next

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
