Calling a KiX script file in AutoIT

5 posts in this topic

I'm trying to call a KiX script file to run in AutoIT, but every try results in an error message.

Here's a piece of the code:

Blockinput (1)

Run("kix32.exe lotusnotes.kix", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

Blockinput (0)

Sleep (3000)

Msgbox (48, "Installatie is voltooid!", "De installatie is succesvol voltooid!")

It's an automated installation script for Lotus Notes, but when I try to use this file, it gives the following error in a DOS box:

Error: Failed to find/open script!

It continues to execute the AutoIT script though, and pops up the message box in the end.

Any ideas would be more than welcome!

Thank you in advance!

You mean something like: "C:\install\kix32.exe lotusnotes.kix" ?

I tried that and it's not working either

If the AutoIt script is in the same folder as lotusnotes.kix use this:

Blockinput (1)
Run("C:\install\kix32.exe lotusnotes.kix", @ScriptDir, @SW_MAXIMIZE) 
Blockinput (0)
Sleep (3000)
Msgbox (48, "Installatie is voltooid!", "De installatie is succesvol voltooid!")

Thank you, working perfectly fine!

But now there's a new problem.

Is there any way I can still give KiX script rights to use input devices? Because I only want to block the keyboard and mouse for the user, but not for the KiX script.
