#70 Fixed AutoIt3Wrapper Attempts to Update 64bit Executables Jos The Kandie Man

The AutoIt3 Wrapper is attempting to update 64bit executables. It fails because Reshacker cannot modify resources of 64bit executables. Though I didn't witness this error, UPX compression will also fail on 64bit executables. I know this because I tried to compress several 64 bit executables with the newest version of the console upx version 3.02w and it failed with the following error message:

================================================================= upx:[FileNameTo64BitExe]: CantPackException: can't pack new-exe =================================================================

To prove to myself that it wasn't the executables and upx.exe, I created a 64bit console application and then tried to pack that with upx. It gave the same error message as above.

When "Use X64 version of AutoIt3/Aut2Exe" is checked off, the AutoIt3WrapperGUI should disable the options to update the executable's resources. In addition, if conflicting directives are present, AutoIt3Wrapper.exe should not attempt to compile and it should throw a conflict in directives error message. Since UPX doesn't work on 64bit executables either, it too should also be disabled.

The reason why this bug is major is because, although the wrapper still creates a working 64bit executable script, the number of options that don't work correctly is extremely high. These options should therefore be disabled.

Since the wrapper errors out with Reshack it appears that other things don't occur. For example, I selected to update the language version of the executable. I also selected for it to compile as a 64bit executable and for it to be a "CUI in stead of a GUI EXE". Since the wrapper errors out at resource hacker, the "MakeCUI [EXENAME]" command line is never run. I also believe that the UPX command was also not run, but that is unimportant because it too would error out.

In addition, just cause we are at it Jos, you might want to change "CUI in stead of GUI EXE" to "CUI instead of GUI EXE". Grammatically more efficient. Just noticed it. ;-)

I spent over an hour writing up this error report (because I did various testing to see what was really wrong), so if I missed anything or left anything out, please let me know.

AutoIt version not included because I keep switching them around. From newest version to older versions (to compile older scripts that are broken due to the updated includes). This is a wrapper bug though, so the version of AutoIt isn't that relevant.

#71 Rejected Au3Info supporting Internet Explorer ComponentFromPoint junkew@…

Would be very nice if AutoIt can do more with Internet Explorer. For a starter it will help that AU3Info easily recognizes the items from internet explorer by using componentfrompoint


If I could spy on IE controls this way it will save me a lot of time to identify the properties on the control I want to interact with.

#72 No Bug MFC ActiveX Control doesn't work w/ AutoIt livewire

MFC ActiveX controls' properies and methods cannot be accessed/invoked via AutoIt. These same controls can be accessed/invoked via VB6 and the ActiveX Control Test Container that comes with Visual Studio 6.

I would expect that if I create an MFC ActiveX Control, I would be able to access/invoke the properties and methods.

You can reproduce the bug by following my instructions on the link below.

OS: Windows XP SP2

Here is a link to my topic on the support forum which contains a sample MFC ActiveX Control:

Thanks, Livewire
