Legal AutoIt

17 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm asking here because I can't get an answer at the official contact mail.

Is it legal to name software products using "AutoIt" word in it. I saw some 3rd party tools with "AutoIt" word that's why I'm asking.

So is it legal to name something e.g.:

"AutoIt Extractor"

"AutoIt Editor"

etc.

?

Can you say something more? Is there any official document about it?

It would be an utility for AutoIt static source code analysis.

For what purpose? In my experience, static code analysis is generally used for breaking down code to search for vulnerabilities, such as what a WhiteHat would do to find vulnerabilities in a piece of commercial software.

I can't really say right now. Do you have any other information than JohnOne about the issue I was asking about?

You need to say, even if it is in PM, to ensure this is something we are going to be willing to support...

I will also point out that you have already been warned against using this site to promote your own payware, so I trust you are intelligent enough not to do so again.

I don't understand why you're talking to me like this. Why should I tell you anything? Who are you?

Did I say anything about promoting my software here. I have asked about legal issue and you're asking me non relavant questions.

For me it's clear - it's not trademarked, I've checked the TESS database about "AutoIt" entry - nothing there. Thank you @JohnOne for pointing me into the right direction with this.

JLogan3o13 is asking you, because he is a moderator of the forum, and his job is too keep threads that are against forum rules, down.

Your description could be something to do with reverse engineering AutoIt.

No need to be defensive, just be straight.

Nah, don't worry it won't be a decompiler (maybe next time hehe) ;), I don't understand this decompiler paranoia here, why is it so sensitive topic? Decompilers are pretty common for almost every programming technology and by denying their existance - well, you're only fooling yourself.

And with that, the thread is locked and you go on Moderation :)

Future posts will need to be approved before they appear on the forum; no patience for this kind of thing.

      Dummy Control Not Triggering
      By OldGuyWalking
      I wanted a quick way to identify screen coordinates and created a simple form.  I also wanted to collect the information. Goal was to move the mouse to different locations, hit a key combination and have the program  collect info for that position and write it to a file.
      I couldn't use a button on the form and HotKeys was not recommended (according to some posts I'd read on here).
      I discovered GUIAccelerators but I'm stuck on what triggers the accelerator key.  I've looked at the help file for GUISetAccelerators which references GUICtrlCreateDummy and used the code from both of those.  I'm not getting any errors and everything seems to run okay except when I press Ctrl + [F3] nothing is captured. 
      This is a work in progress so there's extra code that I haven't cleaned up yet.
      Any help would be appreciated.

      AutoitExe not working on Win 10
      By afallenhope
      Hello all! 
      I am having a bit of trouble and was wondering if anyone may have a workaround for my issue. I made a script that would automatically install a piece of software each night on a Windows 7 Box. Now I have been instructed to do the same with a Windows 10 box since the application is now being tested on Windows 10. 
      The way I did the win7 installation was that I made a script and then made an executable that I call with a batch file along with the Installer. So the process is 
      AutoitMainFile calls batch file, batch file opens Installer, and the automatedinstaller.exe  The automatedinstlaller waits 10-20 seconds to make sure the Installer has been fully loaded.
      When I try to do the same both get loaded but the automatedinstallation.exe does not send commands to the installer. The code does work and nothing from the program we are wanting to install has changed as our Windows 7 runs every night no problem. 
       
      Do I need to make a new automatedinstall script for windows 10? 
      Any advice is appreciated 
      Thanks,
      Richard

      Include/Calling scripts from sub directories

      I have a folder that holds a main script. In the main folder I have sub folders with scripts that include certain functions. How do I access the scripts in the sub folders.
      I can assume @ScriptDir wouldn't work with include to search the current folder?
