Hi,  i'm recording a setup for a program using mouse clicks , however, the problem is when the setup installs (the progress bar showing) the auto generated script by the recorder will not have a winwait() or sleep() to click the "finish" button when the setup is completed. is there anyway to  do that automatically?

Keep waiting for finish button to detect, using its title text.

 

May be like this.

 

$time_out = 120

Func _WinWaitActivate($title,$text,$timeout=$time_out)
    ;Logging("Waiting for "&$title&":"&$text)
    $dHandle = WinWait($title,$text,$timeout)
    if not ($dHandle = 0) then
        If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text)
        WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout)
    Else
        ;Logging("Timeout occured while waiting for the window...")
        Exit
    EndIf
EndFunc

_WinWaitActivate($win1,"Ready to Install the")

Thanks for the replay. The idea is to have au3recorder do this for me as i have many setups and writing manually is a lot of work since i'm working with  100+ setups.

au3recorder itself removed from AutoIT.

You can only get it from older versions.

So, no scope of adding new functionality to that.

max23ed, you should to look into silent switches for installers. You can run an installer with code like this:

shellexecute("myprogram.exe", "/silent")

This method would be more stable, install faster and more professional looking than having a script clicking 'next' buttons.

The above example works with installers that were compiled with Inno Setup (the /silent part is the switch - you can also use /verysilent to install with no progress bar). There are other software installers with their own switches. Most big software companies provide what are called "command line switches" in their documentation or FAQ sections. If you can't find them online, you can email them to see if they are supported and what they are, if supported.

Many years ago, I posted an example script that installed software using silent switches. You might want to look at it as an example (the config.ini section has many software switches listed).

I hope this helps!

My software installer:

      Good morning, I am trying to figure out if it is possible to check if these invoice lines exist or not. 
      Here are the table and column name: INVOICELINE.INVOICELINENUM (a required field if created)
      Here is a picture of what I am talking about. (Do not worry about security. the picture is from a demo test site so all information is fake)
       
      is there any way to check if these fields exist or not? (they do not exist unless the user clicks on "New Row")
      Example: line 11 does not exist right now. How would I go about to see if it did or not? 
      This is what I have so far:
      SELECT DISTINCT iv.invoicenum, iv.description FROM invoice AS iv JOIN invoiceline AS ivl ON iv.invoicenum = ivl.invoicenum AND iv.siteid = ivl.siteid /* = 'nothing' and yet somehow not null? */ WHERE iv.invoicenum NOT IN (SELECT invoicelinenum FROM invoiceline WHERE invoicelinenum IS NOT NULL) I get 0 results where I should get more than 0.

      Hello Everyone,
      I am very green when it comes to AutoIT, I have recently started using it to automate a job that i perform using MS Excel and that is working great. Recently I have been faced with a challenge I which i need to copy a specific set of lines from one .txt file and past them, overwriting a specific set of lines in a different .txt file. I honestly have no clue how I can copy the specified lines and transfer them. What functions / commands could I use and how could I lay them out I AutoIT? Any and all help will be appreciated. 
      Thanks!

      Hello I want to conect to a Network with DriveMapAdd.
      This worked just fine but when you restart the Computer the Mapped drive is gone.
      So i used the persistent mapping flag and that seemed to work, too.
      However when the Computer is restarted I cant connect to the Network because it doesnt remember the Username and password I ave it the first time.
      How do I fix this?
      My Code:Func
      setdrivem()
          DriveMapAdd("M:", GUICtrlRead($driveM),1, GUICtrlRead($netzuser),GUICtrlRead($netzpassword) )
      EndFunc
      $netzuser and $netzpassword are set earlier in the gui and it works right after executing the script but i want it to stay connected

      Morning, I am wondering is there is a way to prevent a script from ending/crashing when a "Subscript used on non-accessible variable" error occurs? 
      Here is some of my code:
      $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, $mFolder[1], $olMail, "[UnRead]=True", "Subject", "Maintenance Request", "EntryID,Subject", "", 0) If @error Then Sleep(2000) LoopUnreadEmails() ;Exit MsgBox(48, "", "@error = " & @error & ", @extended: " & @extended & " at line: " & @ScriptLineNumber) EndIf Error Msg:
      (371) : ==> Subscript used on non-accessible variable.: $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, $mFolder[1], $olMail, "[UnRead]=True", "Subject", "Maintenance Request", "EntryID,Subject", "", 0) $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, $mFolder^ ERROR I know that error occurs very rarely and at random. But like with most errors "in this case" I can use recursion to fix it. 
      I just recall the function and it will and has fixed itself. But this "Subscript used on non-accessible variable" just ends the script.
      Like I said before, is there a way to allow the script to keep running or call a function when this error occurs instead of just ending?
