lost focus

3 posts in this topic

I am writting a script to uninstall a program.

the script executes the .exe program which can see the program is installed and then takes you to a screen that ask you if you want to modify, repair or remove. I would like it to select remove and then click next and finish.

The problem I have is that after the .exe file is executed it brings up the second window but it is not in focus. I have to click on the window before it will allow the script to continue.

I have written a few simple scripts like this before, but I really have not used this program much.

Here is the script I have now.

;launch Driveshield uninstall

Run("C:\temp\ds665.exe")

WinActivate("Welcome to the DriveShield Setup Maintenance")

sleep (5)

send ("!e")

sleep (5)

Send("n")

WinWaitActive("Maintenance Complete")

Send("{ENTER}")

How do I get focus back on the window? I have tried sleep commands but it is not a matter of waiting the focus is not on the window and will not be untill I click on it.

If "Welcome to the DriveShield Setup Maintenance" is the correct title (you may want to read about window titles in the help file) then try

;launch Driveshield uninstall
Run("C:\temp\ds665.exe")
WinActivate("Welcome to the DriveShield Setup Maintenance")
While WinActive("Welcome to the DriveShield Setup Maintenance") <> 1
Sleep(1)
Wend
sleep (5)
send ("!e")
sleep (5)
Send("n")
WinWaitActive("Maintenance Complete")
Send("{ENTER}")

If that does not work for you, look into the Control Functions. You might be able to use ControlFocus and ControlClick/ControlSend on the last window without ever brining it into focus.
