Automating Free DVD to ISO v1.2

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone!

I'm trying out AutoIt3 because I thought it would be fun to automate the installs of my most used programs, but it' not as easy as I thought.

I'm a programmer for a living, so I'm not really a beginner, but I seem to be missing something here...

I checked the notepad example and it worked like a charm with me, I modified it a bit and it all worked great.

However, when I tried the Winzip example on one of my own installers (Free DVD to ISO), I could only automate the first screen.

The second screen is an installer screen with a parent screen with a background image and a label and a child control where you have the Next/Cancel buttons.

This is what I have up to now:

ControlClick("Setup","This will install Free DVD ISO Maker (by minidvdsoft). Do you wish to continue?", "Button1")
ControlClick("Setup","Welcome to the Free DVD ISO Maker (by minidvdsoft) Setup Wizard", "TNewButton1")

As I said, the first click works, but the second one doesn't do anything.

The script exits though.

I also tried an endless while loop with Send({ENTER}) but it sended enters everywhere, in every one of my apps except the installer!

Does anyone have an idea?

I can't get other installers to work either so I clearly must be doing something wrong, I couldn't find any information in the help files about my problem though.

Please help,

well your script works for me :P

try like this to see if itl work with no text on ControlClick

ControlClick("[CLASS:#32770]","", "Button1")
    ControlFocus ("CLASS:TWizardForm", "", "TNewButton1" )
Until ControlGetFocus("[CLASS:TWizardForm]") = "TNewButton1"
ControlClick("[CLASS:TWizardForm]","", "TNewButton1")

you can get CLASS name with autoit info tool.

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.
