invalid command name: "General

#1 ·  Posted

Let me start by saying that I am VERY new to Auotit but, I am trying to build a simple script to run some reports that are now done manually. I have the script built but 8 times out 10 I get an error "invalid command name: "General". The program does run sometimes but will not the majority of the time. When I run the command manually from the shortcut it always works but I can not login with Autoit or even cmd line without getting this pop up error.

 

Below is the login portion of the script.


$Login = 'xxxxxxx'
$Password = 'xxxxxxxx'
 

ShellExecute("C:\Program Files (x86)\Ericom Software\PowerTerm Enterprise\Sessions\mir00p10.PTS")
AutoItSetOption('MouseCoordMode', 0)
WinWait('(A) Soutwest P10 : PowerTerm Pro Enterprise Suite')
WinActivate('(A) Soutwest P10 : PowerTerm Pro Enterprise Suite')
Sleep(5000)
Send($Login)
Send('{Enter}')
Send($Password)
Send('{Enter}')

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Any help would be appreciated!

Moved to the appropriate forum, as the Dev forum clearly states:

Do not create AutoIt-related topics here, use the AutoIt General Help and Support

Just a wild guess. "General" is the user name to login?

The ericson site states, that the product supports VBA (http://www.ericom.com/powerterm/pro-enterprise). Did you give VBA a try?

I did not, and there is a VBA associated but I'm less familiar with VBA than my meager knowledge of AUTOIT

Visual Basic and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) are very similar to AutoIt. I suspect, that the documentation of the product will contain a few examples how to use VBA.
So it might be easier to start with VBA.

On the other hand I would insert a Sleep after you entered the userid so the program can process the input:

$Login = 'xxxxxxx'
$Password = 'xxxxxxxx'

ShellExecute("C:\Program Files (x86)\Ericom Software\PowerTerm Enterprise\Sessions\mir00p10.PTS")
AutoItSetOption('MouseCoordMode', 0)
WinWait('(A) Soutwest P10 : PowerTerm Pro Enterprise Suite')
WinActivate('(A) Soutwest P10 : PowerTerm Pro Enterprise Suite')
Sleep(5000)
Send($Login)
Send('{Enter}')
Sleep(5000) ; <== Inserted
Send($Password)
Send('{Enter}')

I am also curious as to the contents of the PTS file? Are you making changes to the General tab, maybe the parsing of that file is causing the issue?
