Script not working on Win10

Recommended Posts


I am dealing with an ambiguous behavior of a script that builds a listview from an INI file section. I used the code examples provided by AndrewDaoust and Melba23 on the forum.

I use a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit laptop where I have both AutoIt3 versions and Beta, all producing the same behavior.

I start by getting the INI file section into an array:

Global $aArray = IniReadSection($sFilePath, $sSection)

After creating the listview I populate it using the following code:

1222 ; Populate listview
1223 Func _Populate_List()
1224     For $i = 1 To $aArray[0][0]
1225         GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($aArray[$i][1], $Listview)
1226     Next
1227 EndFunc   ;==>_Populate_List

Once populated, the script user can drag and drop listview items to a different position or simply sort them ascending or descending, and of course write the new arrangement back to the INI file section. This works fine on my Windows 7 laptop, but Windows 10 users have report that the drag and drop feature doesn't work as planned.

Trying to solve the problem I borrowed a Windows 10 laptop to test the script and it simply didn't work at all! AutoIt (not my code) displays an error message:



    "Line 1224 (File "E:\Script.exe"):
    "Error: Subscript used on non-accesible variable."




The line 1224 is start of the For/Next loop (see above).

Long story short, I have a nicely functional script on Windows 7 (and probably on other Windows previous versions), a partially functional script on some Windows 10 users, and a completely non-functional script on two Windows 10 (a desktop and a laptop) where I had the opportunity to test the script executable.

I'm most likely the culprit here so I'm counting on your valuable hints. TIA.

Stabs without the script source and more details:

Better error checking to ensure the IniReadSection() function actually worked?
Better checking whether $aArray exists and is actually an array?

Thanks for your reply, Jos.

Yes, both error checking and array existence were handled properly. Unfortunately I can't post the whole code here.

Anyway, I found a workaround and this problem was sorted. Instead of using $aArray[0][0] which carries the number of array contents I used UBound($aArray) -1, and that worked fine on Windows 10, though I can't find a reason why it did not in the first construction that sounds more logical to use. Below is how it is now:

; Populate listview
Func _Populate_List()
    ; Enumerate through the array displaying the keys and their respective values.
    For $i = 1 To UBound($aArray) - 1
        GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($aArray[$i][1], $Listview)
EndFunc   ;==>_Populate_List

I'm still waiting for an user answer about his particular case where the first code worked partially, and if this new construction solved his problem. The error occurred either when referencing $aArray[0][0] (like in the For...Next loop or on attribution ($nCount = $aArray[0][0]) but only when $aArray[0][0] (a global array) was referenced in a function, not in the main code.
