[Looking for Collaboration] Windows 10 Configurator

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I started this project alone in May 2020 as project in my spare time at work, I'm working for a IT compagny that's started opening their services to residential customers few months ago and now my position in the company kinda drifted in the doom and gloom world of repetitive tasks like: Reinstallation of Windows 10.

The procedure is very repetitive and I started feeling like being a robot which is the main reason I started this project.

 

==============================FAQ==================================

  • 1.
  • Q: Do you want this project to be accomplished with the usage of AutoIT ONLY or 3rd party tools / Scripts (BAT / CMD / VBS) ?
  • A: No, if I cannot find a way using AutoIT to accomplish a task I will move to my Plan B which consist of automating an 3rd party tool to accomplish the affected task until a solution is found.
  • 2.
  • Q: What do I get from helping/collaborating in this project?
  • A: I will personally take the responsability to mention you in the credits of this project.
  • 3.
  • Q: If I have more questions, can I ask?
  • A: Certainly! feel free to ask any questions related to this project!
  • 4.
  • Q: What is the main goal of this project?
  • A: Automating Windows 10 configuration without user interaction needed (as much as possible)

Do not like my dirty code? It's okay, but, in my opinion, the dirty codes are unique and I think it's a good glimpse of how the mind of the person who wrote it thinks, and that, that's what I call a psychological deduction step by step in all its splendor.

The current state is very temporary as everything was tested separately therefore I have to put everything together.

Expect to find some parts that aren't yet implemented in the script and there will be some missing functions and unused variables for now.

I've made a repository for this project on Github and uploaded project folder containing the 3rd party tools I use to achieve some task.

Project link is now available in first post at bottom :) 

Edit: As my depression and the silence of this topic is growing, unfortunately project will only be shared via PM until someone is interested to help/participate/contribute on the project.

Thank you,

      Hello!!!  
      In the past I had problems adding an application as a default for an extension in Windows 10. (It was easy in windows 7 using Registry) But since Windows 8 It requires to do some steps more. I wrote a tool (in other programming language) months ago for handling it. But now I just want to share an AutoIt version.
       
      Check on GitHub.

      Dan - thanks for all that you do - this stuff is great. 
      Hoping you can assist with an issue we are having now that we have moved to Windows 10/Server 2016. The Chrome interactions were working flawlessly until moving over. Now my code fails when attempting to create the session. As you can see, our Chrome install is not in a standard location but I have validated the path to the binary. I have attached some detail below including system info, console output and the chrome log detail. I have tried several recommendations that have seen in various forums but none have made a difference
      Any assistance you can give would be greatly appreciated. 
      Thanks in advance,

      Here, For each dimesionId, i need to check corresponding columns of L,M,N ,O(senior, mid, junior, student) & check If they contain letter Y (Open excel 2) and if empty ignore,check next.
      I need to loop through the entire column of dimensionId one by one, please help me proceed with the logic.
      2) If letter Y exists, open excel 2 and check if same dimesionId exists in column A.
      New to autoit excel automation, Help me with logic to execute this.
      #include <Excel.au3>
      Global $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
      Global $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, "D:\yta\Trial concept dimensions list.xlsx")

      Hello everyone.
      I always try to work with old Windows 10 versions as much as possible because I know mane compatibility issues with Windows 10 upgrading. 
      But I couldn't do anything else (I got drivers problem), and nothing couldn't help me besides upgrading, so I upgraded from 1807 to 1903.
      And...get another problem 😃
      I use AutoitX library in external project like this.
      ObjectAutoIt=New COMObject("AutoItX3.Control");
      ObjectAutoIt.AutoItSetOption("WinTextMatchMode",2);
              While ObjectAutoit.WinExists("",WindowHeader) Cycle 
                  ObjectAutoIt.WinClose("",WindowHeader);
              EndCycle;
      After upgrade I get that this line code 
      While ObjectAutoit.WinExists("",WindowHeader)
      become extremely low - ~ 20 seconds even if 10 windows open. But before upgrade it takes 0.5 s for a max.
      And every time that this code line passes through  - it takes ~20s, (20.115, for example), not less, not more. Something pauses it to work.
      How can I diagnose, what is that?
      I tried reinstall whole AutoIt, but no results.
      Thanks to all.
