Script not working if run from shortcut

6 posts in this topic

Hello all!

I was in read-only until today, started to use Autoit 3 weeks ago. It can really make things easy, I really love it :)

I have some script now that works and make our job effective, but I have problems with the latest. It works if I open the script's folder and run the exe directly. If I use the shortcut that I created on the desktop, it's not working properly. Activates the window, but not opening/exporting my files, just opens the last msgbox. I use ftp becouse the PC and the destination PC is not on the same network.

Here's the script:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Comment=send file over ftp
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_Description=send file over ftp for process

$ftp=_FTP_Connect($hOpen, "**********", "******", "******")
If @error Then
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, '_FTP_Connect', 'ERROR=' & @error)
Else
_FTP_FilePut($ftp, @ScriptDir&"\lista.txt", "/lista.txt")
EndIf
Local $iFtpc = _FTP_Close($hOpen)
FileDelete(@ScriptDir&"\lista.txt")
MsgBox(0, "", "Playlist exported", 2)
Exit

Can you post the properties of your shortcut?

I think I got it. We have to try it with "Run as admin" checked. I think it's not running in admin mode, so after I disable input devices, autoit can't send the keystrokes. I check it tomorrow morning :)

Not working from the shortcut (I set it to run as administrator). It stops in the middle of the first send command, after sending the ALT key, before send "fo" keys. If I run the exe, it works. Any idea?

I do not see why it wont work, have you tried to turn off blockinput maybe that is the issue, that or its waiting for a window and holding up the script.

 

You can enable the debug modes and see what line the script is actually pausing on.

      hi guys, how are you ??  fine? good...
      Here is a little question: is it possible to know whish shortcut has been used to launch my autoit app ?
      i'm quite sure that there's nothing to do with autoit, but mostly windows ...
       
      My context: i have an app accessed from the network by my user.
      In my app i use FileCreateShortcut to point to \\myfileserver\myapp.exe
      Soon, in october, they are going to change my fileserver, so my app will be on \myNEWfileserver\myapp.exe
      So in my code, i just rewrite my shortcut on the desktop's user. Everything works fine.
      BUT..some users have several shortcut for my app (they just manually create another shortcut which i don't know the name).
      So maybe they don't use my shortcut but their own ...
      => i know I could list all file on desktop, and for all the .lnk i check if destination is myapp.exe and modify the path but do you see another way ?
       
      thanks
      have fun !

      I am trying to launch the shortcut through autoit, but I am getting below error.
      [Window Title] C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /c start "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\erwin\erwin Mart Server r9.8 (64-bit)\Create MartServer Service.lnk" [Content] Windows cannot find 'C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /c start "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\erwin\erwin Mart Server r9.8 (64-bit)\Create MartServer Service.lnk"'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. [OK] Launching the target directly is not feasible as it is dynamic.
      I tried.
      $r = ShellExecute(@ComSpec & " /c " & "start """& @ProgramsCommonDir & "\erwin\erwin Mart Server r9.8 (64-bit)\Create MartServer Service.lnk""")
       
      and also Run and RUnwait

      I am trying to launch a shortcut.
      But I am getting a file not found error.
      Even I kept a condition to check the file exist and it is there but still I am getting the below error on run command.
      $release = "r10.0" $bit = "64" $erwinShortcut = @ProgramsCommonDir&"\erwin\erwin Data Modeler "& $release &" ("& $bit &"-bit)\erwin Data Modeler "& $release &" ("& $bit &"-bit).lnk" Run(@ComSpec & " /c """& $erwinShortcut &"""", @TempDir, @SW_HIDE) [Window Title] C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\erwin\erwin Data Modeler r10.0 (64-bit)\erwin Data Modeler r10.0 (64-bit).lnk [Content] C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\erwin\erwin Data Modeler r10.0 (64-bit)\erwin Data Modeler r10.0 (64-bit).lnk The specified path does not exist. Check the path, and then try again. [OK] Any suggestions?
      Even I tried surrounding with both double and single quotes for the path of lnk.
      And even changed the working directory to startmenu folder and also exe folder.

      Translated by Google. Sorry for any mistakes.
      Sorry for creating this post based on other great creations but after 15 days searching for a solution to a problem beast I solved them.

      I saw a post dated 2013 about WinSetTitle not working in Win7 64bit. No answer there for me.
      I am trying to set the title of a window, the function returns success and the title is changed for about 50 ms and then reverts back to its original value.
      #RequireAdmin makes no difference in operation.
      I have tried using the handle, the title and the class to define the window. Operation is the same for all three ways.
      EG:
      WinSetTitle("Old Title", "", "New Title")
      WinSetTitle("[Class:Class name]","","New Title")
      WinSetTitle(handle,"","New Title")
      ;=======================================================================================
      All functions report success.
      WinActivate("PxxCXpbHG", "Text")
      WinSetTitle("PxxCXpbHG ", "Text","New title")
      $M1=WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]","")
      sleep (100)
      $M2=WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]","")
      MsgBox(0,"", $M1 & "  " & $M2) ;------------------> "New Title"  "PxxCXpbHG"
      If I change Sleep to 50 , then it is "New Title", "New Title" so somewhere between 50 and 100 ms it gets changed back,but by what??
      Thanks for any help in this matter.
