Posting form stopped working

Recommended Posts


One of my scripts has stopped working after being forced to rebuild my machine and installing the lastest version of AutoIt (v3.3) and I cant figure out how to fix it.

I have a script that posts form data to a url, I use the code in many of my scripts and the compiled versions still works. If I run or recompile the same code it now fails when trying to post the data.

It fails at $oHttpRequest.Send ($PostData)

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\scriptlog.au3 (19) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:

$oHttpRequest.Send ($PostData)

$oHttpRequest.Send ($PostData)^ ERROR

ERROR isnt very specific so Im not sure why it wont work when the compiled versions still work. Im assuming something has changed between versions of AutoIt.

#include <scriptlog.au3>

$begin = TimerInit()
$var = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv", "Start")
If $var <> 2 Then
   ; set it
    RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv", "Start", "REG_DWORD", "2")

#include <Array.au3>

FUNC postit($name,$val,$notes,$installtime)
  $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","nothing"); Install a custom error handler 
  $ResolveTimeout = 5000
  $ConnectTimeout = 5000
  $SendTimeout = 5000
  $ReceiveTimeout = 5000
  $sUrl = "https://www.myurl.com:444/log.asp"
  $PostData = "name=" & urlencode($name)
  $PostData = $PostData & "&PC=" & @ComputerName
  $PostData = $PostData & "&status=" & urlencode($val)
  $PostData = $PostData & "&notes=" & urlencode($notes)
  $PostData = $PostData & "&installtime=" & $installtime
  $oHttpRequest = ObjCreate("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
  $oHttpRequest.Open ("POST", $sUrl,True)
  $oHttpRequest.setRequestHeader  ("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded")
  $oHttpRequest.setRequestHeader  ("Connection", "Keep-Alive")
  $oHttpRequest.Send ($PostData)
  $oHttpRequest = ""

func urlencode($text)
    Local $splitted = StringSplit($text,"")
    for $i = 1 to $splitted[0]
        if $splitted[$i] = "-" or $splitted[$i] = "_" then continueloop
        if $splitted[$i] = " " then 
            $splitted[$i] = "+"
            $splitted[$i] = "%" & Hex(Asc($splitted[$i]),2)
    return _ArrayToString($splitted,"",1)

Any help is appreciated.

Sorry everyone, this was my fault. When I rebuilt my PC, I had restored an old version of my custom include. Once I restored a current version, the problem went away. Since it was in include, that is why even old script where failing.
