# IE.au3 not working

## Recommended Posts

I just did a re-install of autoit and the autoit beta (latest versions)

And I get this error when I try to "beta run" in Scite.

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\beta\Include\IE.au3 (2799) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:

Return HWnd($o_object.HWND ()) Return ^ ERROR +>AutoIT3.exe ended.rc:0 >Exit code: 0 Time: 2.026 What the hell is going on? The help file scripts all work, but none of mine do.... I know it is not my code because even just the include line followed by an IE create returned it. I even re-installed scite. WTF? #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites This is killing me... A complete re-install of auto-it, beta and scite... And I still get this. #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites When I click "open this script" from the help file it will open in scite and when I beta run it, it works fine. When I cut and paste the exact same code into my own scite tab or create a new one... It gives me that error.... #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites This is killing me... A complete re-install of auto-it, beta and scite... And I still get this. There is no beta version for the current production version. Uninstall the beta, then reinstall v3.2.0.1. #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites Eh? I have completely un-installed everything again... I think it would be much easier if you just told me (and link me if you can) to what I need to get IE.au3 working again. I am tearing my hair out here. Edit: I was using: AutoIt v3.2.0.1 autoit-v3.1.1.133-beta-setup.exe Those versions of the beta and auto it.

I think it would be much easier if you just told me (and link me if you can) to what I need to get IE.au3 working again. I am tearing my hair out here. All you need to do is install the latest production version. Then install the latest SciTE. With this accomplished you should now be able to use IE.au3 without any problems. Don't forget you need to run the scripts with "GO" or "F5" from SciTE. #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites I did a complete uninstall and then re-installed the latest production version as well as scite. I loaded up this script #include <IE.au3> _IECreate ("www.autoitscript.com", 1, 1, 0) _IECreate ("my.yahoo.com", 1, 1, 0) _IECreate ("www.google.com", 1, 1, 0) From the helpfile... And then used the "go" option in scite. Same error I think: >Running:(3.2.0.1):C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\autoit3.exe "C:\Documents and Settings\Compaq_Owner\My Documents\tstststs.au3" C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3 (2799) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.: Return HWnd($o_object.HWND ())

Return ^ ERROR

+>AutoIT3.exe ended.rc:0

>Exit code: 0 Time: 2.130

EDIT:

And for some reason, when I open script from the help file it STILL works... But when I copy it into my own it gets that error.

It is acting very very strangly.

I opened a new script in scite and entered this code...

#include <IE.au3>

Well a restart seemed to fix it... I think I had a couple of invisible IE windows lying around that I forgot about from a few hours ago...

It is working fine now... Thanks alot guys, there was some weird stuff going on there for a while : /

Hmmm...Mine ended up having to do with the IE Tab extension for firefox. Closed all the tabs with IE Windows and now it runs fine.

@brodie28

Good deal. I've learned that when things don't make sense, I look for that. And always remember: Logout, Reboot, Reinstall, Thank-you for calling Microsoft support...

Let's work that firefox tab issue off-line... please PM me with some detail on the extension

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
