Solved: WinMove doesn't work

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I want to move the main form of the Windows Media Center which is part of Windows Vista Home Premium. For some reason it doesn't work. Moving the window of notepad.exe on the same machine works fine.

Any idea?

Use the AutoIt window information to make sure you're getting the name right... Maybe try a different option for WinTitleMatchMode that includes the class also.

Window title and match mode are the right ones, I can close the window with WinClose - but WinMove doesn't work. I think the form of the Windows Media Center has some "special" attributes. If it's in full screen mode, it is not possible to place another window over it (even not with WinSetOnTop).

Sorry, I forgot to say I'm working with AutoItX (maybe it's the wrong forum) in combination with Visual Basic. I checked now to move the window with a dedicated AutoIt executable and it works. I will move now the window with the executable.
