Although the actual window title reads "C:\Windows\system32\schtasks.exe", the WindowName seems to be "schtasks.exe".
Well, the ProcessList() function of AutoIt returns just the name of the executable, and that is what is used/checked by WSK if a Window with the specified name can not be found.

Works like a charm now.

Nice program.  smiley
Thanks smiley
As usual, donations are welcome embarassed (not mandatory)

I think you also need to provide the name for the schtasks window that's active during the execution/wait for enter. It now is assuming it has to wait for a window called {ENTER}, and that's quite unlikely to exist. You may need a Window Spy tool or Process Explorer to find the exact name of the window/process while it is waiting for input.

Edit: Changing the -x parameter to -x schtasks.exe may be enough, but I have not enough test-data to try that out. Adding schtasks.exe before {ENTER} should fix it, AFAICS,

This is where the usual escape sequence for quotes is needed: Double the quotes

so I tried:
WinSendKeys.exe -d -xp "/create /xml ""X:\task.xml"" /ru ""COMPUTER NAME\USER NAME"" /tn ""Imported Task""" ?

and got in the log:
2012-11-10 09:55:34.931, Debug logging enabled
2012-11-10 09:55:34.932, Executable Parameters specified: /create /xml "X:\task.xml" /ru "COMPUTER NAME\USER NAME" /tn "Imported Task"
2012-11-10 09:55:34.932, Window: ?
2012-11-10 09:55:34.934, Windowhandle: 0
2012-11-10 09:55:34.934, Window '?' not found.


No special handling required I guess cheesy

so I'm really not sure what niche this tool serves..
Do you need it to be a niche? If it would integrate with SSC, that's a niche in it's own right! Kiss

My goal of keeping options to a minimum was an utter failure as those here who know me predicted:
Grin

And a name with 'Simple' in it is now also untrue Grin
but 'Easy' is still possible thumbs up

I have one idea that's a bit too far for a Coding Snack but it could work as a Coding Lunch with I think some partial commissioned code already
I think we discussed it then, and couldn't get to an agreement/understanding of what, how and when. But maybe it was just me, being confused ohmy

Writing this thread I was thinking of just a general idea of a tool/app/solution to be coded, but eventually I found me a subject and pledged with that already cheesy

But I'd be able to pick up a snack-size target if you have one Cool
484  DonationCoder.com Software / Easy Screencast Recorder / Re: Easy Screencast Recorder - NANY 2013 Entry on: November 08, 2012, 06:55:38 AM
Or what about:
"Easy Screencast Recorder"

That's my current favorite.
Then I'd go for the Full Monty: "Mouser's Easy Screencast Recorder" Thmbsup
485  DonationCoder.com Software / Easy Screencast Recorder / Re: Easy Screencast Recorder - NANY 2013 Entry on: November 08, 2012, 05:49:14 AM
What do you think about "Simple Screencaster"?
+1

But, won't that inhibit you from making it less simple in the future Cool

487  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: [DONE] lightweight pdf viewer and editor on: November 07, 2012, 08:21:44 AM
They open the 'Document Properties' window (within Adobe Reader). Once. If I close the properties window, the key kombo has no effect next time.
Does this have anything to do with the actual input focus? Maybe if you click inside the PDF document, the hotkey for Document Properties (^d ?? not sure, don't have that pdf reader installed...) starts to work again? Adobe Reader is MDI, AFAIK, and pressing the hotkey outside of a pdf document probably does nothing.

Maybe I have the window class wrong? This doesnt work either:
ADOBEREADER_PDF_FRAME
Be sure to check the exact Window ClassName using the Window spy/info tool that comes installed with AHK. And, these names are usually checked case-sensitive.

What do these requests have in common? huh (besides both being requested by you)

I started building one on my own php webserver
You could have pledged as a new topic tellme this is a valid NANY entry
Edit: Thread was split by admin thumbs up

This is for quick and dirty screencast recordings for people who can't be bothered to install and learn a full tool,
Ah, this is going to be one for me then thumbs up
494  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Single click focus, double click bring to front on: November 04, 2012, 11:44:54 AM
Hm, still the same limitations imposed by Windows apply: A window that has focus is the top-most Window, unless other windows having the 'Always on top' attribute are covering it.

So, AFAICS, the only way of achieving your goal will be playing with that on-top attribute of all other windows covering the intended window. Hm, still sounds dodgy.
And I still don't understand the use-case either huh

(I think Katmouse can have problems on win7)
I've been using KatMouse on Win7 x64 for as long as I run that (3 years and a bit now), and I use 1 or 2 apps that have specific mouse-handling that don't like KatMouse, so I excluded them, but it works like a charm for the rest of the system & applications.
495  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Run At Specified Time on: November 02, 2012, 09:13:24 AM
I've checked with Google, but either it's not to be found, or I used the wrong search criteria, but I haven't found anything usable. ohmy

So I mocked up this small Delphi commandline tool: SleepTill.exe
- Version: 0.9.0
Usage:
SleepTill [date] [time] [/?]
[date] : Optional date in yyyy-mm-dd format, default: today
[time] : Optional time in hh:mm[:ss] format, if not supplied: 00:00
/? or -? : Show this helpmessage
Remarks:
- Either date or time, or both, should be provided to start the wait
- Date/time should be in the future to start the wait
- Pressing Ctrl-C stops the wait

Download attached zipped-up exe file removed because of update, below.

498  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: record webinar on: October 31, 2012, 02:42:07 AM
Hm, thew few webinars I've been in had both an awkward login-procedure quite hard to automate, and didn;t have sound option, but for a (toll-free) dial-in number that I had to listen to from my mobile phone (like the rest of the company, having no wired telephone on my desk...)

Any web-capture software that allows/features to be scheduled, should be able to handle this task though, after you've skipped the initial rough-spots I mentioned above.
499  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: overcome compatibility issues on: October 31, 2012, 02:28:56 AM
Windows XP 64 bit has been an ugly duckling since it's inception, and there have been very few (hardware)drivers available for it.
If you want a 64 bit Windows OS, go for Windows 7, or Windows 8 if you want/have to. Even Vista x64 was a small drama (I've used it for 2,5 years myself ohmy).
Only since the wide acceptance of Windows 7 x64, manufacturers have been supplying 64 bit drivers for it (yes, Vista x64 started it too, but to a lesser extend), but drivers are usually not back-ported to older OS versions. There's not enough market to gain.

You know about Serverdoc?  This is simpler than that, local not remote?
Correct, only for local applications, not remote processes, websites or other (web)services.
