      Au3toCmd  ---  Avoid false positives
      Since many virus scanners sometimes prevent a "compiled autoit EXE" from being executed as "false positive", the "*.A3X" format is a suitable format to avoid this problem.
      In order to simplify this procedure, I wrote the Au3toCmd script. Here a *.Cmd file is generated from a *.Au3 file. The necessary files Autoit3.exe and *.A3x are added to the "*.Cmd" file as "alternate data streams".
      Now the Autoit Script can be called by clicking on the cmd file and the anti-virus scanners do not recognize the "false positive".
      If the short-term flashing of the CMD window bothers you, you can create a link that runs in a minimized window.
      Unfortunately, because of the "alternate data streams", this CMD file cannot be distributed via FTP or email.
      Only a USB stick or removable disk formatted with NTFS can be used.
      To solve this problem, Au3toCmd can be used to create a ZIP file that is email and FTP compatible.  Only possible on Win10 due to Powershell 5.0
      Expand this ZIP file on the target system and execute the "*.ADS.Run-me-first.cmd" script. The original CMD file is created again and the auxiliary files are deleted.
      The new version also accepts A3X and EXE files. This means that A3X and EXE files that have been compiled with special options can be used.
      As a side effect, other EXE files can also be included in the CMD file and therefore not detectable by virus scanners.
      Here the source of Au3toCmd.au3 
      ;============================================================================================================== ; Script Name: Au3toCmd.au3 ; Description: Creates a CMD file from any AU3/A3X/EXE file. ; The CMD file will contain the compiled version (A3X) of the AU3 input file ; and the AUTOIT3.EXE file as alternate data streams. ; Alternativly it will contain any EXE file. ; This avoids the problem with the false positives of the virus scanners. ; If the short-term flashing of the CMD window bothers you, ; create the shortcut on the desktop that runs in a minimized window. ; ; Syntax: Au3toCmd (input-file) ; Default: none ; Parameter: Name of an AU3/A3X/EXE file (optional) ; Requirement(s): When using Zip feature: Powershell 5.0 or higher (Windows 10 is ok) ; Example: Au3toCmd testfile.au3 ; ; Author: Exit ( http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/user/45639-exit ) ; SourceCode: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=201562 Version: 2020.07.08 ; COPYLEFT: © 2020 Freeware by "Exit" ; ALL WRONGS RESERVED ;============================================================================================================== #AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w 4 -w 5 -w 6 -w 7 #include <File.au3> Global $rc, $sSourcepath, $sTargetpath, $sA3Dir, $aPathSplit, $sDrive, $sDir, $sFileName, $sExtension, $sIconPath, $iIconNumber = 0 Exit _Main() Func _Main() $sA3Dir = RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\AutoIt V3\AutoIt", "InstallDir") If Not (FileExists($sA3Dir & "\autoit3.exe") And FileExists($sA3Dir & "\au3check.exe") And FileExists($sA3Dir & "\Aut2Exe\Aut2exe.exe")) Then Exit MsgBox(16 + 262144, Default, "Error: Autoit not installed on this system.", 0) _Sourcepath() $sTargetpath = $sDrive & $sDir & $sFileName & ".cmd" FileDelete($sTargetpath) FileDelete($sTargetpath & ".ADS.*") FileDelete($sTargetpath & ".ADS") If Not FileWriteLine($sTargetpath, _ "@echo off & cls" & @CRLF & _ "rem @echo on & dir /R %~nx0 & pause" & @CRLF & _ "for /f ""delims="" %%F in ('dir /R %~nx0 ^| find /C ""$DATA"" ') do set mycount=%%F" & @CRLF & _ "if .%mycount% == .0 echo Invalid copy of %~nx0.

      I am trying to print items from Outlook in a Citrix machine. I am printing the items into PDF files using ‘Microsoft Print to PDF option’. I am using OutlookEX.au3 for printing items.
      Everything is working fine except handling the ‘Save Print Output As’ dialog appearing while trying to print the file to PDF.
      I have set the default printer to ‘Microsoft Print to PDF’ from the control panel ( Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Devices and Printers) and using the following method to print the item.
      _OL_ItemPrint($oOutlook, $OL_Item) ;print item I am not able to handle the ‘Save Print Output As’ dialog initiated by the print statement in the Citrix machine. The WinActive method always returns false. I have tried with ControlSetText, ControlClick and Send methods also.
      Can anyone please help?
      Func _SavePDF($sFilePath) WinActivate ( "Save Print Output As", "") WinWaitActive ( "Save Print Output As", "",5 ) If WinActive("Save Print Output As") Then sleep(500) Send($sFilePath) sleep(500) Send("{ENTER}") sleep(500) EndIf EndFunc;=>_SavePDF

      Hi AutoIT masters,
      Good day! Sorry to have bothered this forum but we really need help. We are working on an automation project that is running on VDI server. The BOTS are in .exe are running fine until AV detected them and deleted the files. The files were re-compiled and AV kept on deleting them. The copy of the .exe BOT deleted were sent to Symantec for whitelisting. After whitelisting, it is no longer deleted but no longer working as designed (showing Line script error). We checked the scripts and there were no issues since we run it using SciTE editor and it performed the desired task. Good thing we found on this thread the solution using .a3x and the BOTS worked fine and no longer deleted. Now, the problem is they are asking why the BOTS won't run in .EXE and what is the reason behind Symantec AV deleting them. We raised a case with Symantec but they cannot provide further information as they are always seeing the file as "False Positive". We even tested with Symantec turned off and those .EXE files are working fine, however, after re-enabling, it got deleted.
      Just seeking help on how to better convince them that it is really Symantec causing the issue and the .a3x file.

      Hi, I am trying to get logged into our Citrix Storefront, we had this working on an older version but it was using "forms" and now it has changed.
      Here is the html for logon page, I need to select the username, password and then click the login button. I have been able to get to this page but do not know how to population these variables. Thanks for any help.

      Greetings to all,
      This may relate in regards to
      My question:
      If I have 2 different au3 scripts compiled individually as a standalone executable(s) (compilation settings are the same)
      If I have one au3 script compiled as a standalone executable(s) with different compilation settings.
      Does an Anti Virus see them as one signature for all? or treated as unique signatures?
      My reason behind this is that I am trying to plan ahead on how to deal with these false positives.
      I am a part of a small IT admin team that would like to automate some repeatable tasks using Autoit.
      Our AV is Sophos if one is curious.
      Any insights are highly appreciated!, many thanks in advance!
