Blockinput Bug/behaviour In Xp..

8 posts in this topic

hello again,

got another one..

in XP, "blockinput,on" prohibits sending ALT (or "!"). for example

"sendkey,!a!b!c" sends "abc".

not sure if this is just how it is or if it is a bug. :D

It indeed should send ALT+a ALT+b and ALT+c... Strange, and nasty.

Microsoft broke the Alt key and BlockInput in one of their critical updates a long time ago. This is a known issue with both versions of AutoIt with no know workaround.

also {ALT}letter often opens the menus.

But not with BlockInput on under Windows XP, which is what this thread was about...

Very annoying problem indeed :D especially when you have so many scripts affected...

Any new info about this BLOCKINPUT - ALT KEY - WinXP problem folks? Does anyone know which MS critical update that breaks this?

Cheers - Andre
