Recognize a link in the about window of IE

Recommended Posts


Open IE 7

Click Help--> About.

In the about window there is a link '2006 Microsoft Corporation'.

Auto IT spy is not recognizing this link. What function should I use to click this link with using mouse?

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IEAttach("About", "embedded")
_IELinkClickByIndex($oIE, 0)

You must use the 3.2.11 beta for this to work due to an AutoIt bug in 3.2.10 that prevented the embedded mode from working.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
