Is it possible to create script in silent mode and how to create

19 posts in this topic

In first of all - i am from Latvia, so please be patient and i am sorry of my bad English.

I am new in autoit script writing, so i have to questions about it...

1. How to create script in silent mode, so the windows that autoit is opening is invisible?

For example

Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
Send("This is some text.")
WinClose("Untitled - Notepad")
WinWaitActive("Notepad", "Do you want to save")
Send("!n")

Is it possible to make all these actions invisible?

2. is it possible to write script, that cant be disturbed?

For example - when i make a mouse click, while script is running - script pauses...

how to write script that wouldn't pause on mouse click?

Please give me some examples!

Hi,

Is it possible to make all these actions invisible?

They already invisible, if you need to run some program as hidden, then do like this:

Run("notepad.exe", "", @SW_HIDE)

Opt('TrayIconHide', 1) ; 0 = Show, 1 = Hide.

Also works to hide icon.

But what i hawe to do to hide all the windows that script is opening?

And i wasn't talking about the tray icon only.

when i do a mouse click on the desktop, or anywhere else, script pauses! I want to do other actions while script is running (like open my computer for example) and script doesn't pause...

Good time to post your code because a script should not interfere with normal operation. That would indicate there is something in the script causing the problem.

This is my code! <_<

RegDelete ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration\{91120000-002F-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE}")
ShellExecute ("nonemt.reg")
WinWaitActive ("Registry Editor", "Are you sure you want to add the information")
Send ("!y")
WinWaitActive ("Registry Editor", "Information in")
Send ("{ENTER}")
Run ("Proof.exe")

WinWaitActive ("Registry Editor", "Are you sure you want to add the information")
Send ("!y")
WinWaitActive ("Registry Editor", "Information in")
Send ("{ENTER}")
Run ("Proof.exe")
Right off the top, what you are trying to do could be better accomplished just by using the Registry functions instead of the Send()s.

Second

Do a Google search for RegEdit+"Command Line" to get a list of switches that could be used with RegEdit and then include what you want in a RunWait().

As in

RunWait("RegEdit /s nonemt.reg")

Command Line Switches.

Funny, I like how that is set up.

1. Don't read the original value of that registry entry.

2. Delete the registry entry entirely.

3. Then ask "Are you sure you want to add the info."!!!

<_< A bit late and a redundant question at that point isn't it?

Once the key is deleted then you might consider the question a bit redundant, yes.

That's one reason why just using registry functions (in the proper order) might be a better solution. Of course a "Are you sure you want to screwup the users registry" msg box with Yes/No would be a good addition right up at the top of the script.
