Please post your code. What you provided does not tell us anything.

here's my code

#include <IE.au3>
#include <IE_V1Compatibility_T2.0_4.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("www.gmail.com") _IELoadWait($oIE)
$oForm = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oIE, "gaia_loginform")
$oUser = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "Email")
$oPasswd = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "Passwd")

$user = "username"$passwd = "password"

_IEFormElementSetValue($oUser,$user)
_IEFormElementSetValue($oPasswd,$passwd)

it should work, doesn't it?

I'm new to the _IE functions myself, couldn't get your code to work.

msgbox(0,"",$oForm) It came up with "0", so it looks like it can't find the form. That gmail link redirects me to here: https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogi...mp;ltmplcache=2 So it could be that they've changed gmail login since that code was devised. #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites I'm new to the _IE functions myself, couldn't get your code to work.

Sorry weirddave, the code was write wrong... i changed somethings...

and the gmail doesn't changed the login because i wrote this code today morning!

Here's the new code, line five rewrote...

#include <IE.au3>
#include <IE_V1Compatibility_T2.0_4.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("www.gmail.com", 0, 1, 0)$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "gaia_loginform") MsgBox(0, "",$oForm)
$oUser = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "Email")
$oPasswd = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "Passwd")

$user = "username"$passwd = "password"

_IEFormElementSetValue($oUser,$user)
_IEFormElementSetValue($oPasswd,$passwd)

But my problem is when i execute the script, a AutoIt Error MsgBox returns the follow msg:

"Line 1247 (File "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\Include\IE.au3"):

$o_col =$o_object.document.forms.item($s_Name)$o_col = $o_object.document^ERROR Error: The requested action with this object has failed." I though "Ohhh, it happens because I tried _IECreate$f_wait = 0", so I let it by default, wait about 5 minutes and the error happend again.

The line 7 "MsgBox" don't appear...

What I supouse to do?

I got the same error, so I added another debug line:

after the _IECreate

MsgBox(0, "", $oIE) Error no longer appears! Still does't work though. Right, looking at the help file:$oIE = _IECreate("www.gmail.com", 0, 1, 0)

The last digit:

0 = Return immediately, not waiting for page to load

This is what you thought might be the problem. Well, I set it to 1, works completely, removed debug msgboxes, no problems.

1 note, I did remove:

#include <IE_V1Compatibility_T2.0_4.au3>

as I don't seem to have it

I set _IECreate defaults, removed #include that you said, but I let the MsgBox and include the MsgBox(0, "", $oIE), start the script and let it run about 5 minutes whitout returns, then it returns a blank MsgBox and the AutoIt Error again... my default browser is FireFox, maybe it could causes the problem? #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites Hi please run this using SciTE. #include <IE.au3> _IEErrorHandlerRegister ("MyErrFunc")$oIE = _IECreate("www.gmail.com", 0, 1, 0)

I am unable to test at the moment as I'm behind a firewall thats blocked gmail. Beats me why...

Also, please post the contents of SciTE when you run it.

my default browser is FireFox, maybe it could causes the problem?

It shouldn't be a problem, I assume the script actually loads IE and not FF? The whole thing works fine here. If it's loading FF, then that could be a mahoosive problem...

I ran the script that you post, it returns:

"COM Error

COM Error Encountered in gmail_error.au3

$ErrorScriptline = 1247$ErrorNumberHex = 80020009

$ErrorNumber = -2147352567$ErrorWinDescription = Erro não especificado (Not specified error)

$ErrorDescription =$ErrorSource =

$ErrorHelpFile =$ErrorHelpContext = 0

$ErrorLastDllError = 0" "COM Error COM Error Encountered in gmail_error.au3$ErrorScriptline = 1262

$ErrorWinDescription = Erro não especificado (Not specified error)$ErrorDescription =

$ErrorSource =$ErrorHelpFile =

$ErrorHelpContext = 0$ErrorLastDllError = 0"

This two msg appears after 5 minutes of script running!

What it means?

And more one question, when I execute any _IECreate("...") it opens two IE windows, its normal?

weirddave: It opens the IE, I just though the FF could be the problem, but I don't think so!

_IECreate makes one window, there should not be two.

Does this make one window for you?

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("www.intel.com", 0, 1, 1) Can you give us the names of any other windows created by either script. #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites #12 · Posted (edited) I ran the script Brett again, now it shows: ""COM Error COM Error Encountered in gmail_error.au3$ErrorScriptline = 1247

weirddave: This script opens two windows, the intel site, and another blank window saying "Connecting..." on the tab description.

There's a PS of the two windows!

I'm starting to suspect there's an issue on your system. I assume going to gmail, intel or whatever via normal menu/surfing clicks is fine, you don't get extra windows appearing?

FF would not seem to be an issue by the shots posted. All a bit odd....

When I go Start -> All Programs -> Internet Explorer 64-bits, just one window open and I navigate normal in gmail or intel... Maybe there's some adware or something like that... In FF there's no one problem too... This _IECreate problem happens since the begin, because that I though it's normal...

I have no fucking idea what is going on in my PC!

I install a Virtual Machine on my computer and try to execute the script... it's working fine, i'll try to format my pc this weekend and try to run the script again...

Thanks for the help...

Works correctly on my machine (XP 64bit)

Instead of reinstalling windows, why not fix the problem and understand what went wrong so it doesn't happen again? I suggest looking for a dodgy process running to start with.

Alright, I'll try to install some anti-spy and adware... gonna to remove all them, reinstall autoit... look for any other problem on process running... and now try again...

Brett, my machine is Vista - 64 bits...

##### Share on other sites

I found the problem, autoit _IE doesn't works fine on Win Vista - 64 bits... I tried to execute this script on another machine with the win vista - 64 bits and occours the same thing... but on my virtual machine win xp 64 bits it's works fine...

Please read the comments about Vista in the helpfile for _IECreate() - there are suggested workarounds for trouble caused by the UAC security measures instituted in Vista.
