WinActivate("[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_1]", "") doesn't work anymore

Recommended Posts


I'm running Windows version 21H2 build SO 19044.1889 64bit Enterprise, the latest Autoit x86 v. and the latest Chrome 104.0.5112.102 (official build) (64 bit).

I've found out that WinActivate("[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_1]", "") doesn't work anymore in my scripts. It seems that the problem is related to the class name. Autoit Window Info however returns the specified class for Chrome.

The problem (perhaps) occurred after Windows update from version 19, but I'm not sure as for some months I didn't touch autoit scripts (perfectly working before).

By the way, the same problem happens with WinExists(), WinGetHandle() and possibly other commands that use CLASS:.

I've found a temporary workaround (using ProcessExists and Opt) but I would prefer to understand why it doesn't work and if it is a bug

If ProcessExists("chrome.exe") > 0 then
    Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -2)
    WinActivate("Google Chrome")
    Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 1)
    MsgBox(0,"Chrome","non esiste")
