i want to use the following code for i project but wonder, if it will work in future versions of windows as internet explorer is discontinued (because of edge):

#include <GUIConstants.au3> ;Makes the gui possible

#Include <ie.au3> ;Makes browsing the internet possible

Global $ini = @ScriptDir & "\swb.ini" ;INI To Store Last WEBSITE Visited

$Form1 = GUICreate("Simple Web Browser MINI Version", 628, 436, 193, 115) ;Creates the GUI

$Obj1 = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2") ;Creates the Internet Explorer Object

$Obj1_ctrl = GUICtrlCreateObj($Obj1, 0, 0, 626, 412) ;Set Object on the GUI

$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("URL", 0, 416, 627, 17, 0) ;Makes the Browse URL Button

GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 10, 800, 0, "Arial Black") ;Sets the Font of the Button5

$iniread = iniread($ini, "URL", "LAST URL", "");Reads the ini so it can navigate to the last URL

If $iniread = "" Then ;If the ini doesnt have a previous saved url then write the default as google.com

iniwrite($ini, "URL", "LAST URL", "www.google.com") ;Writes google into the homepage


$iniread1 = iniread($ini, "URL", "LAST URL", "");Reads the ini so it can navigate to the last URL

_IENavigate($Obj1, ""&$iniread1&"") ;Before the GUI is shown, browse to google. Sorta like a homepage

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ;Shows the GUI

While 1 ;Creates a loop to capture the GUI Messages like close and the url button

$update = _IEPropertyGet($Obj1, "locationurl") ;Gets the URL from internet explorer

IniWrite($ini, "URL", "LAST URL", $update) ;Writes the URL to the ini to navigate on startup

$nMsg = GUIGetMsg() ;Gets the Message

Switch $nMsg

Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ;If you pressed the close button

Exit ;It will exit

Case $Button1 ;If you pressed the URL Button

$URL = InputBox("SWBmini", "Type in the url you wish to go to:") ;Asks what url you want to go to

_IENavigate($Obj1, $URL) ;Navigate to the URL. This is what requires the IE.au3 at the top


WEnd ;This ends the loop


Will this stop working in the next windows release?

If yes: Is there a way to get something similar with edge or firefox?
I just want a browser in a separate, small window (not in the browser itself).


Best wishes

yes, most likely that will not work anymore

This comes closest I think but not sure if that was fully finished

But you can also look at the webdriver concept
