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.

      Dummy Control Not Triggering
      By OldGuyWalking
      I wanted a quick way to identify screen coordinates and created a simple form.  I also wanted to collect the information. Goal was to move the mouse to different locations, hit a key combination and have the program  collect info for that position and write it to a file.
      I couldn't use a button on the form and HotKeys was not recommended (according to some posts I'd read on here).
      I discovered GUIAccelerators but I'm stuck on what triggers the accelerator key.  I've looked at the help file for GUISetAccelerators which references GUICtrlCreateDummy and used the code from both of those.  I'm not getting any errors and everything seems to run okay except when I press Ctrl + [F3] nothing is captured. 
      This is a work in progress so there's extra code that I haven't cleaned up yet.
      Any help would be appreciated.

      I have a folder that holds a main script. In the main folder I have sub folders with scripts that include certain functions. How do I access the scripts in the sub folders.
      I can assume @ScriptDir wouldn't work with include to search the current folder?
