Cannot access IE window to auto-install ActiveX controls

Recommended Posts

Paulexander

I cannot seem to access a window that comes up from IE while trying to automate the installation of some ActiveX controls. I don't know if I would call it a popup per se. The Title is "Internet Explorer - Security Warning", and the prompts are to Install or Don't install the requested software.

Using anything that looks for "WinExists" or "WinActive" gets me nowhere, and I have tested it backwards and forwards, just trying to send a msgbox if it even detects the thing... nada.

The AutoIT Window Info utility can clearly see data on it, however, it does not show up as a separate window in my Taskbar. I am assuming that AutoIT just doesn't see it as a Window, as the functions just do not do anything.

I attached a screenshot of the message, hoping it might help.

Does anyone know how to detect/send controls to these kinds of IE windows?

Thanks a bunch

-Paul

I am running into the same issue, so let's hope we get someone with advance knowledge on "pop ups"

I haven't found any IE pop ups I couldn't automate yet. Post the AU3Info.exe summary of the window so we can see what it is (i.e. Class: #32770). I'm not going to install your ActiveX control, but do you know a way for me to generate a similar window that gives you the same problem? That would give us a common issue to look at.

I'm not sure how I could get you to actually duplicate it. Not only would you not want to install this ActiveX control, but this is an internal web app, so I couldn't even provide a link to it....

Here's the Summary Window info:

Try running this before it pops up, to see if it's found:
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Quit")
While 1
    If WinExists("[CLASS:#32770;TITLE:Internet Explorer - Security Warning]") Then
        MsgBox(64, "Found It", "Aha, I see it!")
        $hWin = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:#32770;TITLE:Internet Explorer - Security Warning]")
        ControlClick($hWin, "", "SysLink1"); If that's really what you wanted to click
        Exit
    EndIf
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func _Quit()
     Exit
EndFunc

You might want to tweak which control you are clicking, but that's the one shown in what you provided.

Hallelujah, you found it!! This is great...

I'm soooo close! Now the trick is to actually send the ControlClick that I want to. Your test script works just fine, even when I change it to the button I actually wanted. When I try to past it into my script overall, it doesn't respond.

Now what am I missing??? (This lives inside of a window)

CODE
; Blah blah, drawing window instructions

$PIVSITE = "http://slc-sac-piv01/epower/install2.htm"

While 1

$msg = GUIGetMsg()

Switch $msg

Case $RELOAD

$CONTINUE = 1

$oIE = _IECreate ($PIVSITE)

;_IELoadWait ($oIE)

While WinExists ("Cannot find server")

$RELMSG = MsgBox (0, "Pivotal Maintenance Utility - Error", "Check Network and/or Log on to the VPN First")

If $RELMSG = 1 Then ; OK Button clicked

$CONTINUE = 0

ExitLoop

EndIf

WEnd

If $CONTINUE = 1 Then

If WinExists("[CLASS:#32770;TITLE:Internet Explorer - Security Warning]") Then ; This is where it gets lost

$hWin = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:#32770;TITLE:Internet Explorer - Security Warning]")

Sleep (1000)

ControlClick ($hWin, "", "Button5") ; CLICKY CLICKY PLEASE!!!

WinWait ($PIVSITE, "Done")

_IEQuit ($oIE)

EndIf

EndSwitch

WEnd
