odd bug I can't locate

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

ok, in my script runas any file, I am having issues, if i put it on a shared drive on a LAN, i open it, and it will randomly not open files, it will just act like nothing happened, if i add a debug message box to it, and try again, it works every single time i use it, but pops up an annoying box. I dont know if this is a GUI bug, or a bug in my code after the call is made.

Any ideas?

Did you try putting variant Sleep() in it where you would have put the MsgBox?

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

I don't know if this is just me, but your link brings me to some random post made by Saunders that has nothing to do with RunAs any file

Oh, im still getting use to the special item inserts, i fixed it now.

note, i also tested the suggested sleep() with sleep(10) and it is still having same issue.

Try Sleep(1000) ... I say this because the MsgBox() pauses the script from continuing on to the next part of your script. Maybe you need that delay for the communication to work.

thats odd, with 1000, it works, but with 500 it doesn't. I think i might know what is causing it now though.

Seeing as how its running a file from the network, i also kill the cmd process that starts it, so it probably doesn't have time to download the file to the local machine.
