Hi All, 

Once again returning back to this great community for much needed help. I am sure that I wont be disappointed and you guys will point me in the right direction. 

To begin with, I am very new here and I have been learning AutoIT. Few months ago I was able to write a script to automate a program to perform some desired task and it has been working great. But, all hell broke lose when I moved this to a Windows 7 VM the script wont even perform the first key commands and after few changes in the code it started working but break intermittently also the compiled scripts wont work at all.  Any help will be much appreciated.

Why using a UDF wich isn't standard? And why this UDF isn't attached?

Can you please be a bit more specific what happens? Do you get any error messages, does the compiled script crash?

As you can see there are couple of winwaitactivate in the script...the script keeps waiting for the window even when the window is active and sometimes it detects some other window. The version which works perfectly wont go past that point and the only way I was able to get it working was by re declaring the variable that stores the window title by    WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]")    ( $TalpacTitle2 = WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]"))   ( not the best way to do it but this is the only way I was able to get it to see the active window and move forward). Another way would be to create the array of absolute names and then loop through them. I haven't tried that yet but I am so confused now that why wont this work now. This has been working perfectly on workstations and the only difference now is that its on a WIN 7 Virtual Machine.

You could add

AutoItSetOption("TrayIconDebug", 1)

at the top of your script so you can see the line number where the script is waiting when moving the mouse over the tray icon.

I have this in the script and it shows me where it is pausing. Is this not the same as yours?

 

Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1) ;0=no info, 1=debug line info

AutoBert.... I wanted to use a UDF to keep only on instance running at a time and this seems to work really well.  Is there a standard way to do this? Please advise. 

 

Thanks

I didn't check your code: tl;dr.
As you know where the problem occurs you could use _ArrayDisplay to show the list of windows returned by WinList and check what AutoIt sees.

I think I found the problem ...testing now. But I will also use WinList to test in case the problem persists. 

Thanks

      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.
      Thx
