I dont know what i did wrong, but it seems a prog i made for one of my games no longer functions in vista... it runs but it doesnt seem to do what its supposed to,,,

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
sleep(1000)
$game = "Map of Llirrem (English Province)    You're at RestartNearTown"

WinSetOnTop($game, "", 0)


GUICreate("MoveQuest",1030,791,-1,-1,$WS_SIZEBOX)
GUISetState (@SW_SHOW)
$lastpos = WinGetPos ( "MoveQuest" ) 
$pos = WinGetPos ( "MoveQuest" ) 
winactivate($game)
do
    
    
    
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
    If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then 
        Exit
    endif
    $lastpos[0] = $pos[0]
    $lastpos[1] = $pos[1]
    $lastpos[2] = $pos[2]
    $lastpos[3] = $pos[3]
    $pos = WinGetPos ( "MoveQuest" ) 
    WinMove ( $game,"", $pos[0]+3, $pos[1]+29, $pos[2]-6 , $pos[3]-32 )
if wingetstate("MoveQuest") = 15 then
        winactivate($game)
    endif


until 1 = 2

Basically, its supposed to create a GUI, move the game window into the GUI, and that lets me move the game window around as i see fit, so i dont need it running at 1680 x 1050 res (what my laptop is at now)

It worked in XP, why doesnt it work in vista? Somone please help!

Look up in the helpfile see under "Using AutoIT" and the look up "AutoIt on Windows Vista".

Hope this helps :whistle:

It doesnt seem to ask for admin rights to run, and i am an admin so i should not have problems running it... and i do get it to run, it just does not resize the game window...

lmao im such a noob...

select the exe... run as admin... duh >.<

So #requireadmin will automatically make the script run as an admin?

Don't use Vista. It is a POS. Wait a minimum of a year before using it, otherwise it will suck just like XP did when it first came out. That is just my two cents. :whistle:
