ImageSearch Dll not working on 32bit

Recommended Posts

Miliardsto

Hello i got problem with ImageSearchDll.dll

It works for me perfect always I made program which one use a lot of ImageSearch funcs on 64bit.

I got 64bit and i copied to c:/Windows - ImageSearchDll.dll 64bit version

But I encountered some friends got 32bit OS and then if I compile program for 32bit then they put ImageSearchDll.dll 32bit ver on windows dir and program crash when function is call.

it happens always :/

 

How to run this func on 32bit?

How about showing your code, rather than having us guess? ;)

EndFunc


While 1
    sleep(200)
WEnd

 

it not working on 32bit but only on 64.

no no - just copy and paste your code here. I'm not gonna download a rar file just to look at code. When you compile to your 64 bit - we want to see THAT code you compile. Not an example either. The actual code please. Its the only way we can see what is happening and be able to help you.

IMPORTANT: Now seeing how this is for image search and this sort of thing is frequently used for games (and your new) - let me make this clear for you: If this is for a game, please understand game automation is against forum rules. If it is, just say so, a mod will close the thread and it will be the end of it.

      Hello, 
       
      I currently have a problem that deals with moving the mouse to a given location + or - a certain distance.
      $search1 =_WaitForImageSearch("envelope.bmp", 10, 1, $x, $y, 20)
      $search2 =_WaitForImageSearch("envelope2.bmp", 10, 1, $x, $y, 20)
       
      If $search1 = 1 Then
                  Sleep(100)
                  MouseMove($x, $y, 10)
                  sleep(99)
                  MouseClick("left")
                 Sleep(99)
      ElseIf $search2 = 1 Then
                 Sleep(100)
                 MouseMove($x, $y2, 10)
                 sleep(99)
                 MouseClick("left")
                 Sleep(100)
      Else
                Sleep(150)
                MouseMove($x2, $y, 10)
                Sleep(150)
                MouseClick("left")
               Sleep(150)
      EndIf
      The problem about this is that i defined $x2 = $x - 175  and $y2 = $y + 35
      I got these numbers ( 175 and 35) with the autoit helper and just subtracted point where it is to the point its supposed to move but it doesnt work.

      is there any proper way to find the distance between 2 points in pixels?
       
      Imgsearch doesnt always work for this picture so i want it to have a backup
       
      edit: could it be that the definition of $x and $y  from the previous image search arent there anymore and thats why it moves my mouse to strange places? 
      is there a way to preserve the $x $y from the previous img search untill the next succesful one?

      Hello im using Imagesearc function and almost always it works great but i have seen on 2 computers this function not works. I dont know why and cant figure out whats going on.
       
      So there are windows 8 64bit and 10 64bit.
      I use script like below so in program folder I got there 4 files
      ImageSearchDLLx32 ImageSearchDLLx64 msvcr110 msvcr110d And it should work I think, it would chose proper file to windows and use it.
      Should I copy Imagesearch to windows directory or system32 directory too or if it is on program folder it is enough?
      I have tried other imagesearch dll and with no success.
      Tried change resolution, colors, some graphic settings etc and no effect
       
      Maybe someone know what can causing problem with functionality imagesearch function?
      And where I should finally put imagesearch dll file to be sure it would be loaded correctly?
       
      There are these 4 files
