autoit.run with parameters

Recommended Posts


In ruby iam am attempting to run an external application using

require 'win32ole'

autoit = WIN32OLE.new("AutoItX3.Control")

autoit.Run('C:\Windows\regedit.exe' '/s Turn_off_Popup.reg')

the first parameter does open regedit but then the when I add the second parameter it appears as if it works ( throwing no error) but the when I check to see if the popup blocker has been turned of it is not. The Turn_off_Popup.reg file looks like this:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\New Windows]


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\New Windows\Allow]

If anyone could hgelp me out I would appreciate it!

Is there a problem with doing something like (Probably the wrong forum, but I suspect this might be correct :))

autoit.RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\New Windows\Allow", "PopupMgr", "DWORD", "00000000")
