Problem opening browser (Google Chrome) - (Moved)


Recommended Posts

 

hello ,
I have a problem, when I run the autoit, the browser (Google Chrome) opens the window and closes instantly.

I have tried the following code,

ShellExecute("chrome.exe"")   or also Run(""C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"").

Thank you for your attention

Moved to the appropriate AutoIt General Help and Support forum, as the Developer General Discussion forum very clearly states:

;~ ShellExecute("chrome.exe")
Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe")

copy and paste the above. Try it as is. Let us know it it worked. It did for me.

Did you check the help file?

Function Run (autoitscript.com)

Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'start /min  http://../html/myhtml.html ', @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE) ; don't forget " " before "/c" ; 2018.08.01
  • Opening the exe with no purpose, means it closes after it has run (no error)
  • For RUN the param /c forces it open
  • In this example the command line forces windows to use the default program associated with the target, eg chrome opens the local HTML page
  • @SW_HIDE runs the command in a hidden window, but the browser opens
  • The start /min param keeps the browser minimized
