Heavy IE.au3 usage results in Lock up.

3 posts in this topic

Leaving the following script running does very strange things to my computer.. It will not allow my to right click on the desktop, Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete, It refuses to let my computer be shutdown without it being a Hard Reboot. I'm using WinXP Home SP3. I have a 3 ghz dual core processor and 3 gigs of Ram. Is there something obviously wrong in my code that would prevent extended usage? The code works, for all means it was made.. and will continue to work even when my computer has become unresponsive. However, when I terminate the script, my computer does not return to working order.

Is there a more efficient method for calling a direct URL query? Is there a more efficient method to go about what I am trying to accomplish? I am sorry for the novice coding. I am trying to get better. :P

Suggest you try to reuse browsers instead of continually _IECreate and _IEQuit. The process creation is very resource intensive -- once the browser is there, _IENavigate is much less expensive.

From the looks of it you could

Global $oIE = _IECreate()
while 1
    Jobs()
    Fight()
    Bank()
    Hospital()
    Hits()
    $num = $num + 1
WEnd
_IEQuit($oIE)

and take all of the _IECreate and _IEQuits out of your functions.

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?

Thank you very much Dale. I've made the changes you suggest, I'll let the script run and see what happens. :P
