_IECreate/Navigate dont support login in url

Reported by: jorbazz@… Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: _Iecreate ienavigate log in error Cc:


I figured out that _Ienavigate doesnt support login credentials in url
This is the script I tested it with:

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate ("http://username:password@",0,0,1);Router denied connections
$sText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE)


C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3 (301) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
$o_object.navigate($s_Url)^ ERROR

This is not an issue with IE.au3 or with AutoIt, but is caused by a change in behaviour in Internet Explorer introduced with security update 832894. This causes the username:password@ syntax to no longer be valid for IE.

See;en-us;834489, Internet Explorer does not support user names and passwords in Web site addresses (HTTP or HTTPS URLs)

The article explains workarounds including registry values that can be set to revert this behaviour for a user or a system.
