script doesnt work when switching pcs

Recommended Posts

i was working on a script at work that ran fine. now on my home laptop it doesnt. same version of autoit and everything. for some reason ControlListView returns 0. also declaring the variable now seems to not work either. here is the relevant code:

If ProcessExists("uTorrent.exe") = 0 Then
    MsgBox(4096, "µTorrent not running", "µTorrent is not running. Open µTorrent and run program again.")
    Exit
Else
    $lines = ControlListView("µTorrent", "", "[ID:27]", "GetItemCount")
EndIf
dim $array[$lines], $lines, $i, $selected, $mylist

here is the output for the variables not working. if i change it they work but i have to keep changing it everytime i switch machines.

>"C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\AutoIt3Wrapper.exe" /run /prod /ErrorStdOut /in "I:\list maker.au3" /autoit3dir "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3" /UserParams

global $array[^ ERROR

$lines isn't defined already. You should do that before use.

Ex:

$lines = 5
dim $array[$lines]

Ex:

$lines = 5
dim $array[$lines]
it is already defined.

$lines = ControlListView("µTorrent", "", "[iD:27]", "GetItemCount")

i cant figure out why i only get the error on some machines.

From what I see in your code $lines is defined only if ProcessExists() is true but you use dim $array[$lines] anymore. You can try something like this:

$lines = 4; just for test
If ProcessExists("uTorrent.exe") = 0 Then
    MsgBox(4096, "µTorrent not running", "µTorrent is not running. Open µTorrent and run program again.")
    Exit
Else
    $lines = ControlListView("µTorrent", "", "[ID:27]", "GetItemCount")
EndIf
dim $array[$lines], $lines, $i, $selected, $mylist

maybe im not being clear enough. the code works fine on my work machine and on my home pc but when i try it on my laptop it returns that the array is formatted badly. i tried your suggestion and it still is the same. i need to know why the EXACT same code is fine on one machine, but not on another. why does autoit on my laptop think its badly formatted but not on my desktop? i tried reinstalling. same version and everything. i don't get it.

to get it to work on my laptop i have to change the dim array to this:

dim $array

and then it doesnt give me the info from controllistview.
