Start Screen

7 posts in this topic

Hello,

I've got a program with an annoying start screen I can't get rid of. My idea is to freeze the whole monitor screen immediately before starting the program and refresh it after some seconds when the splash screen is gone. Is that something I can accomplish with AutoIt? Of course, other ideas are welcome, too.

Best regards

use au3info to get the window title name and try

WinWait ("Stupid splash screen name")

WinSetState ( "Stupid splash screen name", "", @SW_HIDE )

I tried that, but au3info didn't show any information for the splash screen when I click on it. So I've nothing to address ths splash screen.

I also tried to superimpose a screen on my own via SplashImageOn, but as soon as the splash screen appears the own screen disappears even though the SpashImageOn option is left to default which should give 'Always on top'.

make sure that there are no settings in the program for the splash

2 if no try this

Run("Program_name.exe")

WinWait ("")

1 There are no options do deactivate the splash screen

2 No success: The spash screen doesn't hide.

Besides, this is only a second best solution. The splash screen will shorly shine up before is dissapears, but I'd prefer to have it completely invisible.

I darkly remember a function I used years ago in an Excel vba macro to freeze/unfreeze the whole monitor, but can't find it in the moment.
