      I am looking for advice on next trouble shooting steps for my problem.  I have researched this over the last three days and still not solved it.  The main reason "run Scite works, exe doesnt" occurs seems to be duplicate names in executable files but I made sure I do not have that problem.
      I have a "trivial" script that watches for a login window to pop up, inserts PW and enter/closes.  It worked for a year then I experimented with #RequireAdmin on another problem and ran/compiled this one with RequireAdmin to check out what happens as a learning excercise.  Now the compiled version MUST be run with admin rights, and I get the UAC approval window  which I must avoid in my application, but the SciTe editor version runs from the tools menu (F5) just fine, no UAC.  The correlation between using RequireAdmin for a while  and the run problem is probably just a coincidence, but I am suspicious.
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> ;#RequireAdmin ;trying with and without #requireadmin Opt("SendCapslockMode", 0) ;make sure caps are off Send("{CapsLock off}") Local $myTitle = "User Login Dialog" Local $myPW = "password" & "{ENTER} ; Wait max 10 seconds for the Sign In window to appear. If Not (WinWait($myTitle, "", 10)) Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL + $MB_ICONERROR, "Error", "LogIn window did not appear or is timed out") EndIf If WinActivate($myTitle) Then ControlSend($myTitle, "", "", $myPW ) ;alternate, also works in editor ;Send($myPW & "{ENTER}") ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL + $MB_ICONERROR, "INFO", "SENT $myPW enter") Else MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL + $MB_ICONERROR, "Error", "Sign In Window did not activate") EndIf Sleep(2000) If (WinExists($myTitle)) Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL + $MB_ICONERROR, "Error", "LOGIN FAILED") EndIf More info that may be relevant, at least as background info: The LogIn window is from a custom addin to Excel, does not have control ID access to the user/pw entry locations, just the enter/cancel buttons are found by AU3Info.  Thus I had to resort to Send, or ControlSend with just the default selection on popup of where the entries go.  Fortunately the UserID area remains populated between uses and the PW entry "window" is automatically selected at window popup so I just enter PW text and {enter}.
      I can run the compiled file as administrator, OK the UAC window "do you want to allow...", and it runs. (right click the file in file explorer, select "Run as Administrator".
      Trying to accept this issue I tried ways to "bypass" the UAC window.   I followed instructions on CNET to run the exe file as administrator automatically but the UAC window still comes up: Always run a program in administrator mode in Windows 10 - CNET
      I tried to create a shortcut to the exe file through the scheduler following these instructions (other links give the same set of instructions), did not seem to run at all, could not track down any errors I might have made. Open any program as administrator without UAC prompt (winaero.com)
      Is there any system settings permanently changed by RequireAdmin?  What should I look at to have the exe file run without the UAC window?
      Regards and stay healthy!

      Hey guys,
      I having some hard times getting false-positive, probably because I am trying to execute my AutoUpdater.
      Here is my code:
      Global $iUpdateTimer = 0 While 1 checkUpdates(10) WEnd Func checkUpdates($iDelay = 10) $iDelay = $iDelay * 1000 * 60 If TimerDiff($iUpdateTimer) > $iDelay Then ConsoleWrite('checking for updates...' & @CRLF) $iUpdateTimer = TimerInit() If FileExists('AutoUpdater.exe') Then ShellExecuteWait('AutoUpdater.exe') ; this is the line which cause my problem EndIf EndFunc And AutoUpdater code:
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <FileConstants.au3> Global $sExecName = 'test.exe' Global $sUpdatePath = @UserProfileDir &'\desktop\AnyAppName\update\'& $sExecName Global $sUserPath = @UserProfileDir &'\desktop\AnyAppName\'& $sExecName Global $sCopyright = 'someUniqueStringHere' If Not FileExists($sUpdatePath) Then Exit 0 If FileGetVersion($sUpdatePath, $FV_LEGALCOPYRIGHT) <> $sCopyright Then Exit 0 ; checking if we really want to update and execute the file If FileGetVersion($sUpdatePath) > FileGetVersion($sUserPath) Then $iResponse = MsgBox(BitOR($MB_YESNO, $MB_ICONQUESTION),'AnyAppName', 'There is an update available, would you like to update?') If $iResponse == $IDYES Then If ProcessExists($sExecName) Then ProcessClose($sExecName) Sleep(500) EndIf FileCopy($sUpdatePath, $sUserPath, $FC_OVERWRITE) Sleep(3000) ShellExecute($sUserPath) Exit 1 EndIf EndIf Exit 0 I am not trying to ask, why is my code is getting recognized as false-positive, because this is quite obvious, but is there any other way to get things done without running external process?

      Hi All,
      Trying to open windows explorer to a WebDav location and it's not working quite how I want, on the computers it is setup as a "network location" (as opposed to a "mapped drive", and this unfortunately can't be changed), the "Data" WebDav folder sits directly under "This PC" if that's an easier way to get to it. any suggestions as to what I can correct to get the 2nd example to work?
      ; This works, but I'm trying to avoid this as users normally see the URL style in the 2nd example below $folderToOpen = "\\mycompany.sharepoint.com@SSL\DavWWWRoot\Data" Run("Explorer.exe " & $folderToOpen) ; This does not work, it tries to open the WebDav url in the default web browser $folderToOpen = "https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/Data" Run("Explorer.exe " & $folderToOpen) ShellExecute also opens it in the default browser.
      Saw _WinAPI_ShellOpenFolderAndSelectItems but couldn't get the 2nd example to work.
      If I manually open Windows Explorer and paste in https://mycompany.sharepoint.com/Data it loads the WebDav directory without issue.
      If I have to use the pathing from the first example it is fine, just trying to give users a familiar experience.

      I'm trying to install some setup stuff on Win10. 
      One part of the script requires just regular user privileges but the other requires admin privileges.  When I run it from the Autoit Editor it works like a champ.  When I build it, Windows slaps the admin stamp on it and then when I attempt to run the part that only requires regular users....it gets all hosed up. 
      Is there a way to remove #RequireAdmin? 

      I've tried RunAs(username, "", myPassword, "", "cmd.exe", "") but that never seems to work.
      Can someone help me out?
