Has IE completely gone by the wayside.. None of the examples work for me..


Recommended Posts

I have not been working autoit for awhile now but i used to use it a lot... but now that I am back i tried every example in the help file and not of them would work for me.. The browser never came up on any of them.. If its no longer working what is our favorite browser now... Firefox, chrome... if so can anyone point me to a sample that works on  other browsers..

Thanks in advance.

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate()
_IENavigate($oIE, "www.autoitscript.com")

It won't even do really basic stuff like this.

If IE isn't working, it is probably because IE was not installed on your computer.  You can do so.  Even my Win10 laptop has IE installed on it.

As an alternative see Webdriver.

I use an embedded IE Object to display inline HTML reports and have not seen any problems yet. This is across ~200 machines, running Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.

In windows you can remove Internet explorer completely which I always do to my installs. I will not have that atrocious malware on my system. Many people in many places of business also do this for security reasons so I wouldn’t even use that UDF anymore. It’s probably going to get dropped from the next operating system completely

 

ie sucks so hard ms ditched it For a chromium based browser called edge. Use web driver and make yourself happy
