Script that fails - help debugging

5 posts in this topic

The following script is compiled together with the Firefox1.5.exe installer application. The resulting executable is launched on the target XP workstation from a remote Windows computer using "psexec \\client -u client\administrator -p pass -c autoit.exe." Without the -i option this is a non-interactive session. The return code is captured and displayed by psexec.

The problem is the "Firefox Setup" window, which is the first "interactive" window. Unless psexec is run with -i and a user is logged into the target workstation, this window is not active. It does not respond to "Send". Also its Next button responds in an unexpected way to "ControlSend" or "MouseClick": it promptly closes the window rather than "pressing" the button. :P The intention of this script is to automate the upgrade of Firefox on 250 workstations, so I need it to press the button and continue the install instead of killing the application.

Any thoughts?

I found out it's just the "Next" button that's behaving weird. The "Cancel" button works fine. So it looks like an error with the Firefox installer itself.

I'd be curious to hear if someone has suggestions to working around this.
