Unable to open DLL files

4 posts in this topic


I am trying to open a dll using DLLOpen, however everytime i try to do so the function fails and returns -1 result. 

I have the dll in the same folder as the auto it script. 

Local $hDLL = DllOpen("C:\Users\310255155\Downloads\COMMGvv2\commg.dll")
DllCall($hDLL, "int", "MessageBox", "hwnd", 0, "str", "Some text", "str", "Some title", "int", 0)

Using nirsoft's free DLL Export Viewer @, I could not find the export function, "MessageBox" in the "commg.dll" file.

To dllcall a message box, see the  _WinAPI_MessageBoxIndirect function.

First, look up _WinAPI_MessageBoxIndirect in the AutoIt help file and try the example, then;
Secondly, open the include file, WinAPIDlg.au3, and look at the actual workings of the _WinAPI_MessageBoxIndirect function.
You'll see "MessageBoxIndirectW" is the export function used from the "user32.dll" file.

Note : The return values of  the _WinAPI_MessageBoxIndirect function is the same as the return values of  the MsgBox function, which depends on which button is pressed in the message box.

      I was trying to create a script with a GUI but when I start the script via pressing the startbutton in my GUI and then trying to stop the script it won't close/stop.
      Here is the script:
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form= Global $GUI = GUICreate("AlphaAgility", 218, 65, 1147, 123) Global $StartButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 24, 16, 75, 25) Global $StopButton = GUICtrlCreateButton("Stop", 120, 16, 75, 25) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) #EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ### While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $StartButton while(1) Agility() WEnd Case $StopButton Exit EndSwitch WEnd Global $agility = False Func Agility() MouseClick("Left",random(466,500),random(634,669),1,random(10,20));Balancier-Stamm If Not(@error) Then $agility = True sleep(random(0,200)) MouseMove(random(408,661),random(632,749),random(10,20));random Mousemovement Balancier-Stamm Else EndIf sleep(5500) MouseClick("Left",448,820,1,random(10,20));Netz If Not(@error) Then $agility = True sleep(random(0,200)) MouseMove(random(334,557),random(774,876),random(10,20));random Mousemovement Netz Else $agility = False EndIf sleep(3750) MouseClick("Left",480,706,1,random(10,20));Ast If Not(@error) Then $agility = True ;sleep(random(0,200)) ;MouseMove(random(95,953),random(117,1067),random(10,20)) -> kein random Mousemovement nötig Else $agility = False EndIf sleep(2750) MouseClick("Left",727,608,1,random(10,20));Balancier-Seil If Not(@error) Then $agility = True sleep(random(0,200)) MouseMove(random(723,891),random(572,676),random(10,20));random Mousemovement Balancier-Seil Else $agility = False EndIf sleep(6750) MouseClick("Left",698,633,1,random(10,20));Ast If Not(@error) Then $agility = True ;sleep(random(0,200)) ;MouseMove(random(95,953),random(117,1067),random(10,20)) -> kein random Mousemovement nötig Else $agility = False EndIf sleep(4000) MouseClick("Left",random(372,459),random(136,202),1,random(10,20));Netz If Not(@error) Then $agility = True sleep(random(0,200)) MouseMove(random(388,510),random(140,212),random(10,20));random Mousemovement Netz Else $agility = False EndIf sleep(6250) MouseClick("Left",random(362,401),random(363,409),1,random(10,20));Röhre If Not(@error) Then $agility = True ;sleep(random(0,200)) ;MouseMove(random(95,953),random(117,1067),random(10,20)) -> kein random Mousemovement nötig Else $agility = False EndIf sleep(7000) MouseClick("Left",14,654,1,random(10,20));Startposition If Not(@error) Then $agility = True ;sleep(random(0,200)) ;MouseMove(random(388,510),random(140,212),random(10,20)) -> kein random Mousemovement nötig Else EndIf sleep(4000) EndFunc Thanks in advance

      We are trying to automate the installation testing before sending to end users, our product.
      For Silent Installation, we have completed this part.
      But for GUI, the default installation is completed by sending the keys based on the window.
      But for GUI custom installation, we are struck.
      How to enable or disable features in the below screen using GUI automation.?

      I have a GUI with a parent window that has a menu and shortcut buttons at the top, and a child window which displays a list which is scrolled vertically.
      When the list is relatively small, like no more than 100 or so lines then it scrolls fine.  As the list gets larger, scrolling begins to slow, and if you start mixing up the scroll method (mousewheel, left-clicking the scrollbar box, etc) then it begins to hang.  When it hangs, dwm.exe CPU usage maxes out, and I can't even switch to another window.  Each line in the list is 1000px wide X 30px tall, and the lines alternate between a gray background and a white background, in case that matters.
      When a non-Aero theme is active, everything works fine.  So, I could disable DWM every time someone fires it up, but changing a client's color scheme is not ideal.
      I tried to utilize _WinAPI_DwmSetWindowAttribute($oGui_Parent,  $DWMWA_NCRENDERING_POLICY, $DWMNCRP_DISABLED), and although it succeeds in disabling DWM for that window, it doesn't seem to make any difference as far as the scrolling lag is concerned.
      The code is several thousand lines long and contains proprietary information, so I'm trying to avoid posting that, but these are the lines which are creating the GUIs.  Is there anything that anyone can think of off the top of their heads, or is there anything jumping out at you from this snippet of code?  Any help is appreciated!
      $oGui_Parent = GUICreate("Data Viewer", 700, 500, Default, Default, BitOR($WS_CAPTION, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX, $WS_POPUPWINDOW)) WinSetTrans($oGui_Parent, "", 255) _WinAPI_DwmSetWindowAttribute($oGui_Parent, $DWMWA_NCRENDERING_POLICY, $DWMNCRP_DISABLED) GUISetFont(9, 500, 0, "Calibri") GUISetBkColor(0xFFFFFF) $oGui_Child = GUICreate("", 700, 400, 0, 100, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_MDICHILD, $oGui_Parent) WinSetTrans($oGui_Child, "", 255) _WinAPI_DwmSetWindowAttribute($oGui_Child, $DWMWA_NCRENDERING_POLICY, $DWMNCRP_DISABLED) GUISetFont(9, 500, 0, "Calibri") GUISetBkColor(0xFFFFFF)

      I would like to create a window like the one shown below. The requirements are as below
      1. The title bar should be opaque.
      2. The parent window/Main screen will be below the side menu/child window
      3. The left side of the side menu window should be opaque.
      4. The right side should be semi-transparent. 

      Any idea to help?
