AutoIt3Help viewer only displays help correctly if run in elevated mode

3 posts in this topic

After an update installation to Win 10 V.1607 (64bit) I have noticed that help does not show formatted properly anymore e.g. with Images missing, tables, headers, sample code mal formatted etc.

However, if AutoIt3Help.exe is run as Administrator everything works fine.

I have already uninstalled AutoIt and SciTE for AutoIt and reinstalled both in the latest version.  I have used default locations for the installation under:

C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\...

Any idea?

Just to close this topic.

Problem was not related to AutoIt etc. but was caused by an apparently corrupted Windows user profile

Migrated to a new user profile and all good.

… Sorry. :sweating:

      Hey there,
      I'm having some issues quick-sorting my 2d array imported from a database. Im trying to sort the array based on the name that would be returned in $array[$n][2]. The code i posted works for smaller arrays but for some reason when i try to sort my imported array (around 9000 indexes), I get "Recursion level has been exceeded". I understand that this is maybe due to lack of returns but i couldn't find an ideal spot to stick em and again it seems to work with smaller bits of code. Could it be that 9000 is too much?
      I would normally just trial and error it until i figured it out but due to the length of time to load and buffer my array it's become too time consuming. Really I'm just hoping there is a quick fix that someone with more experience happens to know.
      Thank you

      I was wondering if its possible to make anything like this in AutoIT

      function toArr(str) { var ret = Array((str.length + 3) >> 2); // String to array of 32 bit ints for (var i = 0; i < str.length; i += 4) { // FYI: // NaN << x === 0 // x | NaN === x ret[i >> 2] = (str.charCodeAt(i ) << 24) | (str.charCodeAt(i+1) << 16) | (str.charCodeAt(i+2) << 8) | str.charCodeAt(i+3); } return ret; } function megaKdf(pw) { var pwkey = [0x93c467e3, 0x7db0c7a4, 0xd1be3f81, 0x0152cb56]; var arrPw = toArr(pw); var aes = Array((arrPw + 3) >> 2); // Init aes keys for (var i = 0; i < arrPw.length; i += 4) { aes[i >> 2] = new sjcl.cipher.aes([arrPw[i]|0, arrPw[i+1]|0, arrPw[i+2]|0, arrPw[i+3]|0]); } // Generate password key for (var i = 0; i < 65536; i++) { for (var j = 0; j < aes.length; j++) { pwkey = aes[j].encrypt(pwkey); } } return pwkey; } function loginHash(pwKey, email) { var aes = new sjcl.cipher.aes(pwKey); var arrEmail = toArr(email); var hash = [0, 0, 0, 0]; // Compress email with xor for (var i = 0; i < arrEmail.length; i++) { hash[i & 3] ^= arrEmail[i]; } // Generate hash for (var i = 0; i < 16384; i++) { hash = aes.encrypt(hash); } return sjcl.codec.base64.fromBits([hash[0], hash[2]], true, true); } function badRand32() { return Math.floor(0x100000000 * Math.random()); } function generateMasterKey() { return [badRand32(), badRand32(), badRand32(), badRand32()]; } function confirmationLinkHash(pwKey) { var aes = new sjcl.cipher.aes(pwKey); return aes.encrypt([badRand32(), 0, 0, badRand32()]); } function updateHashes(email, pw) { var pwKey = megaKdf(pw); var masterKey = generateMasterKey(); var clHash = confirmationLinkHash(pwKey, masterKey); var lHash = loginHash(pwKey, email); var aes = new sjcl.cipher.aes(pwKey); return lHash; } function htmlentities(str) { return str.replace(/&/g,"&amp;").replace(/"/g,"&quot;").replace(/</g,"&lt;").replace(/>/g,"&gt;").replace(/'/g,"&#39;"); } function analyzeLink(link, pw) { var linkHex = "N/A"; var masterKey = "N/A"; var encMasterKey = "N/A"; var pwHash = "N/A"; var unknown = "N/A"; var email = "N/A"; var spacer = "N/A"; var name = "N/A"; var unknown2 = "N/A"; if (link.substr(0, 27) == "") { link = link.substr(27); } if (link.substr(0, 19) == "") { link = link.substr(19); } if (link.substr(0, 8) == "#confirm") { link = link.substr(8); } if (^[0-9A-Za-z\-_]*$/) == 0) { link = sjcl.codec.hex.fromBits(sjcl.codec.base64.toBits(link, true)); var pos; for (pos = 94; pos < link.length; pos += 2) { if (link.substr(pos, 2) == "09") { break; } } if (pos < link.length) { var pwKey = megaKdf(pw); var aes = new sjcl.cipher.aes(pwKey); var linkHash = aes.decrypt(sjcl.codec.hex.toBits(link.substr(32, 32))); if (linkHash[1] == 0 && linkHash[2] == 0) { masterKey = (new sjcl.cipher.aes(pwKey)).decrypt(sjcl.codec.hex.toBits(link.substr(0, 32))); masterKey = 'Base64: <span style="color:#f00; font-family:monospace;">' + sjcl.codec.base64.fromBits(masterKey, true, true) + '</span> (hex: <span style="color:#f00; font-family:monospace;">' + sjcl.codec.hex.fromBits(masterKey) + '</span>)'; } else if (pw != "") { masterKey = "Wrong password"; } encMasterKey = '<span style="color:#f00; font-family:monospace;">' + link.substr( 0, 32) + '</span>'; pwHash = '<span style="color:#080; font-family:monospace;">' + link.substr(32, 32) + '</span>'; unknown = '<span style="color:#00f; font-family:monospace;">' + link.substr(64, 30) + '</span>'; email = link.substr(94, pos - 94); spacer = '<span style="color:#0cc; font-family:monospace;">09</span>'; name = link.substr(pos + 2, link.length - 16 - pos - 2); unknown2 = '<span style="color:#000; font-family:monospace;">' + link.substr(link.length - 16) + '</span>'; linkHex = '<span style="font-family:monospace;">' + encMasterKey + " " + pwHash + " " + unknown + ' <span style="color:#888; font-family:monospace;">' + email + '</span> ' + spacer + ' <span style="color:#f0f; font-family:monospace;">' + name + '</span> ' + unknown2 + '</span>'; email = htmlentities(sjcl.codec.utf8String.fromBits(sjcl.codec.hex.toBits(email))) + ' (<span style="color:#888; font-family:monospace;">' + email + '</span>)'; name = htmlentities(sjcl.codec.utf8String.fromBits(sjcl.codec.hex.toBits(name))) + ' (<span style="color:#f0f; font-family:monospace;">' + name + '</span>)'; } } ge("linkHex").innerHTML = linkHex; ge("linkMasterKey").innerHTML = masterKey; ge("linkEncMasterKey").innerHTML = encMasterKey; ge("linkPwHash").innerHTML = pwHash; ge("linkUnknown").innerHTML = unknown; ge("linkEmail").innerHTML = email; ge("linkSpacer").innerHTML = spacer; ge("linkName").innerHTML = name; ge("linkUnknown2").innerHTML = unknown2; }

      Hi there, not sure if this is the right place, but I'm building a script for using premade answers in chat. It works and outputs the answers (stored in an ini file based on:  answer name = answer it also works with a new line if there is a tag <enter> in the answer text in the ini file. Now the problem is, that after the answer is pasted in the chat (you bring up the interface with ctrl+1) it gives an enter, thus sending the output straight away. I would like to be able to review the answer before sending it. can anyone help me by telling what's wrong in the script, I tried replacing the @crlf in the script with other options, no luck. Thanks in advance!

      I need to find a way to after x amount of seconds set the Autoit gui's ComboBox to next option available, and if it reaches the end of the list start back at beginning. This way I can cycle through checking if users are connected to a network. The combo is populated via a recursive file search that contains folders with each connected user's username. The ComboBox will contain something like " username\config " for every connected user. So I need to make so it cycles through constantly every X seconds I have the gui functioning, and all that I just can't get this one part to work.

      TL:DR - How do I make so an AutoIt GUI ComboBox will cycle through all of its options every X seconds, and when it reaches bottom of options cycle back to top and continue the process again.

      Thanks! I can't post any code due to NDA sorry...

      I honestly didn't try anything yet.
      But i was thinking about my next step would be to try creating a tetris bot for educational purpose only. Last time i created a automation script / bot for ClubPenguin, which was simply made with PixelSearch If NOT(@error) Then , bla bla u know the drill aight, so i thought i would give my self a little harder challenge instead of keep making Pixelbots, i would love to try making a Memory bot or w/e u call , i read something about memory read/record was used for Tetris bots, since i haven't used Memory, i would love to know if anyone could give me a good guide or smth to follow :-) Either a complete tetris bot guide or a guide that explains memory totally in depth ish. :-)
