AutoItX on 64-Bit Windows

3 posts in this topic

Hey there Folks. We have tons of scripts that are verison 2.x and don't want to go to the new 3.x version yet - but now we need to install on 64-bit windows....

Q: Is there a way to install the 32-bit version of AutoItX on the 64-bit windows?

Our invocation is this:

Set oAIX = CreateObject("AutoItX.Control")

And we get the famous:

Active X component can't create object: AutoItX.Control

What do we do to make the 32-bit version work on 64-bit windows?

It's not offen you get to reply to your own question. I found an answer.

The key is to run the VB as the 32-bit version of the VB on the Win 64-bit.

This 32-bit VB is here:

C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\wscript.exe

(it could also be in C:\WINNT)...

The place that talks about that is here:

Thanks to those who read this and THOUGHT about helping.
