AutoitExe not working on Win 10
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
[Solved] New "sys tray" access problems under Windows 10
One of my GUI applications requires that a particular third-party application not only be running, but be present in the "sys tray" (aka Taskbar). When this 3p app is active but not in the systray/taskbar, it is not ready for proper use, and I must inform the user about this.
Here is a code snippet that used to work fine under Windows 7:
; ; #FUNCTION# ========================================================================================================= ; Name...........: _Get_Systray_BtnIndex ; Description ...: Determines if an appllication with the specified title is running in the Systen Tray ; and if so, returns the relative index number of it's button on the tray. ; Syntax.........: _Get_Systray_BtnIndex($iTitleText) ; Parameters ....: $iTitleText -> The (tool-tip) title of the desired application ; Return values .: Success - Returns the index number of the desired appliction button, 1 being the first ; Failure - Returns 0 if desired application is not found in the System Tray ; Sets @error as follows: ; 0: Normal return ; -1: System Tray was empty (i.e., no appllications running the tray) ; -2: No System Tray was found ; Remarks .......; Setting any parameter to -1 leaves the current value unchanged ; Setting the $iStyle parameter to 'Default' resets ALL parameters to default values <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< ; Setting any other parameter to "Default" only resets that parameter ; Author ........: Poster "war59312", and code was found at URL: ; http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/40550-check-if-program-is-running-under-system-tray/#entry902746 ; Modified by mjb on 26-June-2014 to return @extended error code rather than using MsgBox() to report errors. ; Func _Get_Systray_BtnIndex($sToolTipTitle) ; Find systray handle Local $hSysTray_Handle = ControlGetHandle('[Class:Shell_TrayWnd]', '', '[Class:ToolbarWindow32;Instance:1]') If @error Then Return SetError( -2, 0, 0 ) EndIf ; Get systray item count Local $iSystray_ButCount = _GUICtrlToolbar_ButtonCount($hSysTray_Handle) If $iSystray_ButCount = 0 Then Return SetError( -1, 0 , 0 ) EndIf ; Look for wanted tooltip For $iSystray_ButtonNumber = 0 To $iSystray_ButCount - 1 If StringInStr(_GUICtrlToolbar_GetButtonText($hSysTray_Handle, $iSystray_ButtonNumber), $sToolTipTitle) > 0 Then ExitLoop Next If $iSystray_ButtonNumber = $iSystray_ButCount Then Return 0 ; Desired application is NOT running in the System Tray Else Return $iSystray_ButtonNumber ; Application was found in the SysTray EndIf EndFunc ;==> _Get_Systray_BtnIndex ;
But what's happening under Windows 10 is that the "_GUICtrlToolbar_ButtonCount()" always returns 1, even though there are 10-14 items visible in the Task Bar. Unsurprisingly, the single item returned has nothing to do with the 3'rd party application in question.
As you probably know, Microsoft made significant changes to the systray/taskbar since Windows 7 (or at least by Windows 10). I spent quite a while searching MSDN for some other way to accomplish what I need, but I must be too stupid to figure it out.
Please help. Thanks!
Setting ACLs using alternate credentials
I've been using this UDF to set ACL permissions to some network folders, everything works great (no issues). However, I want to apply these permissions using elevated domain credentials supplied by the user and not the user that's currently running the script. As a temporary solution, I've implemented a RunAs function, but that's not the solution I'm looking for. I'm not fluent with using Dlls, but I have been trying out different methods.
My RunAs Function:
Func _RunAs($sUser, $sPass) If @Compiled Then RunAs($sUser, @LogonDomain, $sPass, 4, FileGetShortName(@ScriptFullPath), "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) Else RunAs($sUser, @LogonDomain, $sPass, 4, FileGetShortName(@AutoItExe) & " " & FileGetShortName(@ScriptFullPath), "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) EndIf EndFunc ;==>_RunAs I tried LogonUser and I know that I can take that token to ImpersonateLoggedOnUser, but I'm not sure how to implement that or if that's even the right method. I also need to RevertToSelf once completed.
Func _LogonUser($sUsername, $sPassword, $sServer = @LogonDomain) ; Returns True if user exists Local $stToken $stToken = DllStructCreate("int") Local $aRet = DllCall("advapi32.dll", "int", "LogonUser", _ "str", $sUsername, "str", $sServer, "str", $sPassword, "dword", 3, "dword", 0, "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($stToken)) ;$hToken = DllStructGetData($stToken, 1) If Not @error And $aRet <> 0 Then Return True EndIf Return False EndFunc ;==>_LogonUser Any assistance, suggestions or idea's would be helpful.
RegWrite with Windows 10
I am having an issue with windows 10 and regwrite. when i run my script it acts as though it has updated the registry but when i view the registry it has not updated the keys. I added error checking to the script but it is not showing errors. now if i remove #requireadmin i will get error 1 - unable to open requested key.
her is my code.
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> #include <Process.au3> ; Declared Variables Global $userName = "user" Global $userPassword = "Ktesting" Global $autologin = "1" Global $notification = "0" Global $balloon = "0" If @OSArch = "X64" Then Global $HKLM = "HKLM64" Else Global $HKLM = "HKLM" EndIf ; Looks for switch on program start If $CmdLine > 0 Then ; looks for switch on startup If $CmdLine = "/boot" Then BootMachine() Else MachineInstallation() EndIf ; Setup Kiosk for first time Func MachineInstallation() #RequireAdmin MsgBox (1, "Installation", "Starting Install") ; Add Program to Run registry Key RegWrite ($HKLM & "\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run", "DL Kiosk", "REG_SZ", "c:\temp\DL Testing Kiosk\dl testing kiosk.exe /boot") If @error Then MsgBox (1, "error", @error) EndIf ; Add Automatic Logon Registry Key RegWrite ($HKLM & "\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon", "AutoAdminLogon", "REG_SZ", $autologin) If @error Then MsgBox (1, "error", @error) EndIf RegWrite ($HKLM & "\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon", "DefaultUserName", "REG_SZ", $userName) If @error Then MsgBox (1, "error", @error) EndIf RegWrite ($HKLM & "\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon", "DefaultPassword", "REG_SZ", $userPassword) If @error Then MsgBox (1, "error", @error) EndIf ; Pop Ups and Notification Center Registry RegWrite ("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer", "DisableNotificationCenter", "REG_SZ", $notification) If @error Then MsgBox (1, "error", @error) EndIf RegWrite ("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced", "EnableBalloonTips", $balloon) If @error Then MsgBox (1, "error", @error) EndIf MsgBox (1, "Installation", "Install completed") EndFunc Exit
i think i figured out my problem. I was missing the space between Windows and NT. user error, sorry.
[Solved] WinMenuSelectItem doesn't work with my Dutch Notepad
I have a Dutch version of Windows 10.
The Dutch word for "File" = "Bestand" and for "Page Setup" = "Pagina-instelling".
WinMenuSelectItem doesn't select this items. What can be the reason?
Run("notepad.exe") WinWaitActive("[CLASS:Notepad]") WinMenuSelectItem("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Bestand", "Pagina-instelling...") Sleep(4000) WinClose("[CLASS:Notepad]")
