Question: How can I target this window/button

Recommended Posts

i'm using the autoIt v3 window info tool like usual, but on this window i cannot find -any- information.

i could click the first button (which starts the installation) by MouseClick() but i don't know how i can find out when the installation is done, and i could click the close button (german: "Schließen")

i cannot find the button itself, and i cannot find any text of the underlying window. it's just all empty (see screenshot)

could anybody tell me what i could do here?

@malicor why not just perform a silent install rather then trying to manipulate the GUI? If you run SSMS-Setup-ENU.exe /? it will give you a list of the switches and parameters you can use.

you could do what was mentioned (I would)-- the silent install

or, learn how to use UIAutomation (steepish learning curve involed) and do it the manual way. Guess which is easier, not to mention infinitely less prone to failure?
