Winactivate not work for apllication in 64 bit

Recommended Posts


Hello ,

I am start working before few day to automate my task using AutoIT.

I was wright AutoIT script for windows base  application (our own company application, "X"), My task is automate it so I decide to go with AutoIT

I wright code in my 32bit system and it work fine with our application "X"

But when I am going to run it with my colleagues computer on 64 bit it not activate window , so I was try to debug it, and found that problem start with Winactivate function.

(my script work fine up to interacting  with  our application "X", once script  start to interact with our application "X" the application not response to anything this happen in 64 bit system only)

but  when I test script on my other colleagues computer with 32 bit  system and it work very fine .

I stuck on this problem I was search on web too, but unable to find solution.

I have question that "is problem in  32/64 bit system or in our "X" application?"

my script is like below.


;;start script

;; Comment



; call function as per need



Func Runcp();;;;;;create function to run application "x"

 WinActivated("Out Application Title","")


send("^N");create new controller window ctr + shift + n


;do somthing




;;;script end here

In your function, you wrote WinActivated ...

WinActivate works fine on my x64.

Try this:

WinActivate ( "[TITLE:كتب الشاملة]" ,"" ) 
;كتب الشاملة is only a subscript of the full title!

      I am trying to use the ControlClick in a "save as"-window to select the path of where to save the document.
      I found out that when in press the icon in front of the path, i select the path. So I am trying to press that button (i have attached a print screen of this window).
      While trying to figure out how i had to use the ControlClick, it said somewhere that i could us Au3Info to find out what title,... i should use with the ControlClick.
      The result of the Au3Info I have attached aswel.
      The ControlClick that i tried are these: (and none of these even move the mouse)
      ControlClick("[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:4]", "", "", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      ControlClick("[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:4]", "", "1001", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      ControlClick("[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32]", "", "", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      ControlClick("Save project as", "", "", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      I don't know what I am doing wrong.
      Should I use a controlID? is my windowtitle wrong?
      Can anyone help me?
      Thanks in advance,

      I need to add a column with data daily at the end of the column and calculate the difference between last two columns in put it in a seperate column. So i need to get the  position of the last column.
      Local $count = $oWorkbook2.Worksheets(1).UsedRange.Columns.Count MsgBox(0,"",$count) ; ***************************************************************************** ; Copy a single cell from another workbook. Pass the source range as object. ; ***************************************************************************** Local $oRange = $oWorkbook2.Worksheets(1).Range("A1:A15") _Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oWorkbook1.Worksheets(1), $oRange,"H1:H15") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook1, $oWorkbook1.Worksheets(1), "=C2-H2", "I2:I15", False) this code copies to a specific column H with a range 15. But i need to keep that column range to update automatically when columns are added.
