#1740 closed Bug (No Bug)

Cannot send Period (ASC 046) when using Italian OS

Reported by: me@… Owned by:

Version: 3.3.6.0 Severity: None

Description

I've tried to narrow this down as much as possible. This doesn't work on Italian Window XP:

#RequireAdmin
Run("notepad.exe")
WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")
Send( "." )
Send( "{ASC 046}" )

Keyboard Layout: 0410
OSLang: 0410

I don't know what else to provide. I simply cannot send periods if the script runs on an Italian version of Windows! (Other characters seem to work fine)

I don't have access to an Italian windows version but if you have an English or French version can you redo the check with italian keyboard only? Thanks

Is the requireAdmin really needed?

Replying to Jpm:

No, RequireAdmin isn't required. I just put it there to show that I even tried that and it made no difference.

I did a little more experimenting. If, on the Italian version of windows, you change the keyboard to the US keyboard - it works. It seems that it's only when using the Italian keyboard. I don't, however, know what happens if you try the same experiment on an English version of Windows.

I download an Windows XP SP2 Italian version and run it under a Virtual machine .
Guess what it is working.

I don't fully understand your repro script as it is referring to an English notepad.
I attached a screen capture of what I did

Well that does make things more interesting. Let me contact the user and verify a few things and get back to you.

Alright...with that help I was able to isolate the problem to sending to 1 specific application. I have a feeling that this isn't an AutoIt issue...so I apologize. Although your test was crucial. :) This ticket can be closed, and thanks again.
