Hi guys. I have the same problem. Here is a simple code I want to execute:

#include <AutoItConstants.au3>

MouseClick("right", 916, 522)
Sleep(1000)
Send("0");

I have the scite editor window minimized to 200x300px so the position of the right click should happen in my desired window. But it doesnt, what happens is it presses the right click but not on my desired window and then presses the Key "0" in the editor. So to me it seems like the focus is always on the scite editor.

 

Here is my scite config:

I would be really thankful for any suggestions.

ice_Q,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

But in future, do not multiple necro-post in unrelated threads - just open a new thread as I have now done for you.

@Melba23 Seems that forked threads don't have the original poster as a 'Follower', so you might want to @ them :)

@ice_Q Using mouse clicks usually isn't the best way to automate something. Can you explain a bit more so we can help better?

If you are forced into using MouseClicks on a particular window, I'd suggest using WinActivate, WinWaitActive, and possibly even restricting the use of the mouse through BlockInput (though this requires admin permissions). After these steps, finally use the MouseClick since you can then be sure the correct window is active

My Problem was that the code in the script was executed in the editor and not on my desired window.
I found the solution. I tried starting scite editor with admin rights and it worked. Strange though, I was logged in as an admin.

AutoIt need rights, if you want to touch a window that is actually elevated with admin rights. 

 

You could reproduce this with any software that use remote control. This is a NTFS rule. Not sure about MSRA witch would be an exception.

Yeah the file system is not the problem and even though the poster was thinking he’s an admin he’s not


My resources are limited. You must ask the right questions

You sure about that? I don't see how the file system would be involved here. 🤨

This is an abuse of language which means that it is the rules of Microsoft which manages the rights of windows why complicate matters.

@Danp2 How is called the management of windows rights in Windows ? 

What is managing windows Rights ? Any kind of ACL or something ?

 

EDIT : I have to admit I said NTFS because I don't even asked myself about this.

I would call that Windows security and indeed isn't related to the FileStorage formatting. :)
