As per help file :


WinMenuSelectItem() will only work on standard menus. Unfortunately, many menus in use today are actually custom written or toolbars "pretending" to be menus. This is true for most Microsoft applications.

Try to make it worked with Notepad first.  We will be able to assist you since we do not have your application.

And use this tool, when you post code

Try this :

#include <GuiMenu.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Run ("notepad.exe")
$winh = WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]")
ConsoleWrite($winh & @CRLF)

$menuh = _guictrlmenu_getmenu($winh)

$titletxt = _guictrlmenu_getitemtext($menuh,0)   ; get File

ConsoleWrite($titletxt & @CRLF)

$aRect = _GUICtrlMenu_GetItemRect($winh, $menuh, 0)

MouseClick("left", $aRect[0]+10, $aRect[1]+5, 1, 1)
