What's problem with this uTorrent install script?

Recommended Posts


Try to make a silent switch installer of uTorrent 1.8.1 stable. The following script is actually generated by AU3Recorder but it simply stopped at the very first screen. I've checked the "Title" and "Text" with the Window Info Tool and they are all correct, any idea why it just stopped?

Download link of the uTorrent install package (Note: you need to have a clean uninstall of utorrent in order to get the install program to work) -> http://download.utorrent.com/1.8.1/utorrent.exe

#region --- ScriptWriter generated code Start ---






WinWait("μTorrent Setup","Create Start menu en")

If Not WinActive("μTorrent Setup","Create Start menu entry") Then WinActivate("μTorrent Setup","Create Start menu entry")

WinWaitActive("μTorrent Setup","Create Start menu entry")


WinWait("μTorrent","Would you like to ma")

If Not WinActive("μTorrent","Would you like to ma") Then WinActivate("μTorrent","Would you like to ma")

WinWaitActive("μTorrent","Would you like to ma")


WinWait("Speed Guide","Choose the upload sp")

If Not WinActive("Speed Guide","Choose the upload sp") Then WinActivate("Speed Guide","Choose the upload sp")

WinWaitActive("Speed Guide","Choose the upload sp")


WinWait("μTorrent 1.8.1","")

If Not WinActive("μTorrent 1.8.1","") Then WinActivate("μTorrent 1.8.1","")

WinWaitActive("μTorrent 1.8.1","")


WinWait("μTorrent","Do you really want t")

If Not WinActive("μTorrent","Do you really want t") Then WinActivate("μTorrent","Do you really want t")

WinWaitActive("μTorrent","Do you really want t")


#endregion --- ScriptWriter generated code End ---

Since no one reply can I asume that AutoIt doesn't work with utorrent?

Its probably because of this line

because then it allows the next gui to load.

Modified according to your suggestion but the script just stopped at the very beginning, really don't know why because the "Title" and "Visible Text" are all matched with the WinActive("μTorrent Setup","Create Start menu entry") as indicated by Autoit Windows Info:

Your script worked for me. Have you previously installed uTorrent on the machine on which you are testing your script? Sometimes the dialogues are different if the folder exists already or it detects a previous installation on the machine.

On an obtuse note: See the lowdown at http://www.threatexpert.com/report.aspx?md...7527b586b3ef0c3 to see if you have a clean install of that file (I used the latest 1.8.1 exe file as my submission).

This website is useful for working out how to uninstall programs - not just yours - anybody's. Just submit them to http://www.threatexpert.com/submit.aspx and wait for the results a few minutes later.

Take the report with a grain of salt. Often false positives are reported by other scanners for some of the components.

rather than using "send" your script might be more robust if you use things like controlclick.

Something along the lines of

WinWait("µTorrent Setup")
$winhandle=WinGetHandle("µTorrent Setup")

;Uncomment any of these options if you wish to change them
;ControlSetText($winhandle,"","[ClassNN:Edit1]","c:\utorrent") ;Set the install path
ControlCommand($winhandle,"","Button3","uncheck") ;uncheck start menu
;ControlCommand($winhandle,"","Button4","uncheck") ;uncheck quicklaunch
;ControlCommand($winhandle,"","Button5","uncheck") ;uncheck Desktop


winwait("µTorrent", "Would you like to make ")
$winhandle=WinGetHandle("µTorrent", "Would you like to make ")
ControlClick($winhandle,"","[text: &Yes]")

WinWait("Speed Guide" , "Choose the upload speed appropriate")
$winhandle=WinGetHandle("Speed Guide" , "Choose the upload speed appropriate")
ControlCommand($winhandle,"","ComboBox1","SelectString", 'xx/512k')
controlclick: ($winhandle,"","[text:&Use Selected Settings]")
WinWait("µTorrent 1.8.1")
