WinWaitActive Never satisfied?

7 posts in this topic

I'm just starting to write my own scripts using AutoIt and I'm starting with creating scripts to install my applications. I'm using the install WinZip tutorial as my model.

I've tried this approach with installing a couple different applications but the scripts seem to always get stuck because the second WinWaitActive never seems to get satisfied.

My script:

Run("\\MyServer\apps\BeyondCompare 2.4.1\beycomp_060323.exe")

WinWaitActive( "Open File - Security Warning", "Scooter Software")

Send( "R")

WinWaitActive( "Setup", "", 3 )

Send( "Y")

The first WinWaitActive seems to work as I'd expect, but the second one just causes the script to pause forever, even when I added the 3 second timeout (which I'd expect to just pause for 3 seconds waiting for the window "Setup" to become active. If it doesn't become active, the script continues anyway).

What am I doing wrong?

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

now use the PARTIAL TITLE. :banana:

If it doesn't fix the problem, then use WinExists in stead of WinWaitActive()

Nope, neither one worked.

Here's the info from the AutoIt Window Info application when the Setup window is active:

Press CTRL-ALT-F to pause the display.

Try this:

Opt('WinSearchChildren', 1)

Run("\\MyServer\apps\BeyondCompare 2.4.1\beycomp_060323.exe")
WinWaitActive( "Open File - Security Warning", "Scooter Software")
Send("R")
WinWaitActive("Setup", "", 3)

Edit:

Had to fix a typo, and wow, the text is encrypted when you use AutoIt Code Tags when you try to edit!!

Now what?

The >Visible Window Text< shows the accellerator key ALT is to be used on the buttons. So pressing the Alt + n keys or Alt + y keys together will choose the option.

Send("!n") ; click no button

; or use

Send("!y") ; click yes button

:D

Edit:

Also good to know is hovering the mouse over the button will allow AutoIt Info Tool will show the info in the Control under Mouse section. That would give you the info of the controls details needed if possible.

WinWaitActive( "Setup", "", 3 )
Send( "Y")

The Open File - Security Warning Dialog opened when I ran the installer file manually but not when I issued the Run command from within AutoIt.

This leads me to my new question: I could tell the AutoIt script was paused and waiting for something (because of the icon in the system tray), but is there a way to tell which line it on? (This info would have saved a lot of time troubleshooting the wrong line of code)

Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1)

As for the security warning try

Run("\\MyServer\apps\BeyondCompare 2.4.1\beycomp_060323.exe")
If WinExists( "Open File - Security Warning", "Scooter Software") then Send( "R")
WinWaitActive( "Setup", "", 3 )
Send( "Y")
