Ok, so I just found out about this program today, and I am super excited that

1) it is freeware

2) it looks really well made

3) has a huge user community and easy to use forum

Before I found this one, I was looking at a disgustingly ugly program called WinBatch, I vomited a little bit in my mouth when I first ran it. Thank god for this. I will try to donate once I accomplish the autoit script I want to make :whistle:

So anyways, I read through the tutorial for notepad, and that was very easy to do, so I wanted to start on my own, and of course, I get an error on the first line, the run command. I am simply trying to open Internet Explorer:

Run("Iexplore.exe", "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

what am I doing wrong? LOL I am embarressed :"> . Thanks for your help.

EDIT: I figured I would post a bit about the program I am trying to make:

I have to do this boring menial task each morning where I have to go to a certain website, click a certain link which downloads a zip file containing a Microsoft Access database file (.mdb) and then I need to extract it to a certain folder using winzip, and enter in the password (because the zip file is password protected, but stays the same every day) and then open up another database file and click run on the macro that appends the data into it. Anyone have something similar to this? or bits or pieces that could help? thx.

cool thanks!

UPDATE: This is what I have so far, and it is working FAN-TASTIC!!!

_IECreate("http://home-services.intra.sears.com/reporting/index.html")

Send("{TAB 28}")

Send("{ENTER}")

Sleep ( 250 )

Send("{ENTER}")

Send("{ENTER}")

Send("{TAB 1}")

Send("{ENTER}")

WinWait("Download complete", "", 50)

Send("{ENTER}")

ok now to figure out interacting with winzip.

So I did a search and found the sevenzip.ua3, and I managed to get it to work but my zip file is passworded, how could I get it to enter in the password "PRS" ? I tried looking at the command parameters (I think it is -p ) but I wasnt sure where to put it. Thanks :whistle:

#include <sevenzip.au3>
msgbox(0, "",_SevenZipExtract("C:\WINNT\Profiles\carsftp\Desktop\national_call_load_status.zip", "C:\test"))
