Compatability across Different Desktops Tips

10 posts in this topic

I am new to both Auoit and programming scripts in WinXp.

I wrote an automated printing/plotting script.

It is only stable on my WinXP desktop but does not seem to work across the design group with their own installations.

Varies with WinXP and Win2k.

Any Tips and Tricks that anyone can advise to keep a script to be compatible across all machines?

Thank You to all you smart folks out there!

Compatibility is a vague term as being compatible can range from whether a program will try to do something on a system that can't do the operation to whether the system can even understand what the program wants it to do.

Test your script before you roll it out.

All by me:

"Sometimes you have to go back to where you started, to get to where you want to go." 

"Everybody catches up with everyone, eventually" 

"As you teach others, you are really teaching yourself."

From my dad

"Do not worry about yesterday, as the only thing that you can control is tomorrow."

@zergling,

Post the script that you are having problems with and you might get more specific tips.

Edit: pretty much what BALA said, only I'm on dialup atm, so I did not see that post before I posted.

This may be off-topic, but what's atm stand for?

Hello All,

I have uploaded the attachment of the script. Please be gentle... I'm just getting my feet wet :-)

Change this from:

AutoItSetOption("SendKeyDelay", 1)

to

AutoItSetOption("SendKeyDelay", 10)

Replace as many of your "Send" lines with ControlSend.

You might have to add a sleep between each WinSetTitle and the next line that uses that new title... or just get rid of the WinSetTitle lines.

After those changes, post back with a description of how it fails on another system.
