Documentation for IfWinNotExist function for Autoit version 2.5

Recommended Posts


Hi All,

(I am new to autoit... Currently looking at some errors in a script that was written some time ago....)

I have a block in an autoit script from version 2.5, which works ok, unless the IfWinNotExist function is called...

sleep, 1000
IfWinNotExist, Setup - Symbol OPOS Scanner Driver,Select Start Menu Folder,,goto, stage4
WinActivate, Setup - Symbol OPOS Scanner Driver,Select Start Menu Folder
send, !N

It seems like there is a problem with the args, but I can't find any documentation for that version of the function.

Any idea where I can get that from?

Many Thanks!

You might be in luck, but why not change the script to use the latest AutoIt release rather then one from more than 15 years ago?


AutoIt v2 code looks very similar to current AHK code - if you search around a bit you will understand why.....

Heh. I just read the history, it really is vintage ;-)

it looks like it would be straightforward to convert it, so I'll have a crack at that.
