Error when run as a admin, Error on a line of code that does not exist (Error: Variable must be of type "Object") - (Moved)


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, my problem is that when I try to run my already compiled program as administrator I get this error, but when I run the script it works correctly.


this is my code

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> 
#include <Excel.au3>

;I use this code to not open a new excel file
Global $sWorkbook = @ScriptDir & "\facturacion.xlsx"
Global $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookAttach($sWorkbook)

;this line of code is the problem
$num = $oWorkBook.ActiveSheet.Range("C2").value

MsgBox(0,0, $num)

;this line of code is the problem
$num = $oWorkBook.ActiveSheet.Range("C2").value


Is there another way to obtain the data from a cell in an Excel file?

Thanks for your time 😊

when you run the program "as-administrator", it's in a different security context. (UAC elevated)


If you must attach, because you need that particular workbook opened in Excel, then start Excel UAC elevated as well.
