AutoitExe not working on Win 10

5 posts in this topic

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

@afallenhope let me start out by saying :x on using autoit to control batch to control (I'm assuming) MSI. Will be much less headache for you down the road if you stick to a single language (which we can help with).

Secondly, you will find that it is very rare that we will be able to assist problems with code when you don't actually post the code. By posting the full code (or at least something that reproduces the issue) we can test on our end and give suggestions. Without that, we're left to peer into our crystal balls and take a guess :)


When you're dead, you don't know you're dead - it's only difficult for those that know you. It's the same way when you're stupid...

@JLogan3o13 thanks for your response and sorry for tagging multiple topics. I'll make note of that :)

This is a snippet from the AutoitMainFile

;Starts Batch file that will open C# installer and launches XInstaller.exe
            ShellExecute("C:\Users\NTS\Desktop\Autoit\cmdprmt.bat", "")
            sleep(10000)
            ShellExecute("C:\Users\NTS\Desktop\AutoIt\XInstallerAuto.exe")
            ;Waits for XInstaller to display the word success
            WinWaitActive("XInstaller","Success")
            WinKill("[CLASS:XInstaller Software Installation]", "Finish")

            Sleep(5000)
            WinKill("[CLASS:Restart XPlan]", "restarted")

This is my cmdprmt code

@echo off
CD "C:\Users\NTS\Desktop\AutoIt\XPlanUnzipped"
start XInstaller.exe
CD "C:\Users\NTS\Desktop\AutoIt"
start XInstallerAuto.exe
exit

The XInstallerAuto.exe is the executeable made by Autoit. I have seem to have misplace the original source code for that file. What it was comprised of was just wait 5 seconds send Alt+N keystroke then wait another 5 seconds etc.

      Hello.
      I had made a bot that clicks and doing stuff. It is working fine, but when i move it to another PC ImageSearch stop working. I captured same image of a button again and i observed that they are a little bit different. How to deal with this? I wonder if i will make black and white detection might work, or not ... i don't know. The point is i am not willing to re-do photos on each and every PC i move the scripts.
       
      ClickOnImageWithToleranceFast("images/fb_about.bmp",16) Func ClickOnImageWithToleranceFast($image_path,$tolerance) If SearchForImageOnScreenWithTolerance($image_path,$tolerance) Then If $x <> 0 And $y <> 0 Then MouseMove($x+5, $y+5,0) Sleep(500) MouseClick("left") Sleep(500) EndIf EndIf EndFunc

      Hi,
      I was wondering is this all inputs can be done in 1 box with 3 fields and not to use another gui.
      And how can i validate data for example if i don't enter username he prompt me a message box all time until field is empty.
      I try like this but it give me a msgbox and continue on another field.
      $username = InputBox("Add new user", "Username", "", "", 200, 130, Default, Default, 0) if $username <> " " then msgbox(0, "", "Please enter username") endif $email = InputBox("Add new user", "Email", "", "", 200, 130, Default, Default, 0) $password = InputBox("Add new user", "Password", "", "*", 200, 130, Default, Default, 0)

      'm trying to make an autologin script for facebook which prompts u to enter an email and a password and then opens the browser and logs you with the info u entered but im having a problem with the text entered in the input box. What i basically want it to do is take what's written on the inputbox and replace it on the email form in the facebook site and the password. Don't mind the other buttons in the gui , i just wanted to focus on the facebook button first. Any help will be appreciated
