Which browser to work with AutoIt

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone ,
                           I am really confused right now about which browser to choose to work with AutoIt. I have been using IE but honestly, IE crashes more often and is not really as customized as any other browsers out there. So here are my questions.
1. which browser to choose ? (e.g: firefox, chrome, etc)

2.why?

That's it .

Would like to here everyone's detailed suggestions, so as to make a really good decision.

Thank you All.

Hehe .. There is nothing wrong with my computer. its just that when ever my script goes over more than 2 hours of usage of IE it crashes.

But, Thank you for your views on the topic, will keep in mind.

What makes you sure that the same problem will not arise with FireFox or Chrome?

Good question, I don't know and that is why I am asking the question here before trying it for myself and wasting my time learning everything. Mostly, someone or the other might have worked with it and they can show their generosity by sharing their views, so that I can take a decision.

Thank you

I would first try to find the cause of the crash. "Running for 2 hours" sounds like you are running the script in a loop. There might be a memory leak causing the crash.
Which error message do you get when your script crashes?

Can you post your script so we might have a look at it?

Yes, I am running the script in a loop. Sorry I cant share the script. But, probably the cause is due to cache memory, i.e. what I think. the script includes constantly opening webpages, and the loop runs for almost 2k times and maybe the cache is the cause.

And I don't get any error message, the script just waits for the web page to load and exits. Meanwhile, internet explorer stops working and windows ask me to debug the IE or close IE.

Check the memory consumption while running. Maybe you need to release some ressources after each loop.

Why automate? Just start the Task-Manager and then your script and watch how memory consumption increases.

Check if you cannot use inetget functions.

No need to Fix your computer, just use Firefox.

Details: all others are simply a right royal pain in the arse to use ... especially IE.

Whenever I run my script I close the applications first run ccleaner and then run my script and I leave. I return back to my system after couple of hours. That is why I want a solution to this problem in a way that I don't have to do anything manually.

      Hi All,
       
      I am new to this AUTO IT and I have created a script that will open an app,enter pin and copy the code generated to clipboard. My java code call this autoIT script and use the copied generated code from clipboard.
      This works fine when server  window is on focus. My server is an windows server. 
      But when I minimize or disconnect the server, the script opens the app.exe but doesn't copy any value to clipboard.  
      Can anyone help me on this 😐
       
      Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\RSA SecurID Software Token\SecurID.exe")
      Local $hWnd=WinWait("abc - RSA SecurID Token") ; waits until the window is the active window
      $hWin = WinGetHandle("abc - RSA SecurID Token");
      ControlSend($hWnd,"","","1111") ; simulates pressing the Home key
      ControlSend($hWnd,"","","{ENTER}");
      ControlSend($hWnd,"","","^c");
      Sleep(1000) ;
      ControlSend($hWnd,"","","^c");

      Hi All,
      So I have created a small autoIT script to enter pin into a RSA token(app which generate new code every 30 second), and copy the generated code.
      I have a java application which requires this code so every time my java-code requires this RSA code, it runs the autoIT script and the copied generated code is then used in my java application. 
      I have deployed this code on a windows server and it works fine when I am logged in and the window is on focus, But as soon as I schedule task and disconnect the server (not logged out only disconnect), or even minimize the server window, the autoIT scripts fails and its not able to copy the value.
       
      Please find below the code for AUTOIT.
       
      WinActivate("rsa - RSA SecurID Token") ; activates the window that has old in the tilte bar
      WinWaitActive("rsa - RSA SecurID Token") ; waits until the window is the active window
      Send("1111") ; simulates pressing the Home key, enters password to get the code
      Send("{ENTER}") ; simulates pressing the Enter key
      Sleep(1000) ;
      Send("^c") ; simulates pressing the CTRL+c keys (copy)
       
      Also I saw some post regarding that WINACTIVE only works when window is active. But my below AUTO IT script to handle windows pop up  works perfectly fine when the server is disconnected. 
       
      Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 1)
      WinWait("https://url","","10")
      WinWaitActive("https://url","","10")
      Sleep(2000)
      Send("userid")
      Sleep(1000)
      Send("{TAB}")
      Sleep(1000)
      Send("passwrd")
      Send("{TAB}")
      Sleep(500)
      Send("{ENTER}")
