Hi,
SendPlay isn't working together with Windows 7:
SendPlay,Hello World!
It would be great if it could be fixed in the next version!
Happy developing.

I just started using Windows 7 and noticed this problem.

It would be great if this could be checked on.

Thanks!

I was over at a friends house and he uses Win7 x64, and Sendplay seems to work fine over there.

Can other Win 7 users confirm this? I will move it back to Bug Reports of there is consensus that it is an AHK problem rather than a Windows problem.

mhh...
I'm the developer of Realtime Browser, and users reported me, that one function wasn't working on w7.
I replaced SendPlay with SendInput and now it works...
IT must be a bug

Hi everyone!

Just wanna say that I've turned UAC OFF, and now "Sendplay" is working in WIN 7 x86 version.

Sendplay doesn't seem to accept UAC turned on.

Thanks all!

SendPlay uses the "journal playback" hook, which has been "broken" since Vista. This is the clearest information I could find:

To set a Journal hook, the app needs to be signed, manifested for uiAccess, and run from a secure location (usually Program Files).

Source: RE: Journal Hooks in Vista

MSDN confirms that a process launched with UIAccess rights "Can set journal hooks", but also implies that a process running as admin should be able to. Several other sources confirm that running as admin isn't sufficient, but disabling UAC is.

Note that this applies to all applications which use journal hooks on Vista and later, not just AutoHotkey on Windows 7.

SendPlay is working fine on my Win7 x86 system.

However scripts I have written containing SendPlay haven't worked for Win7 x64 users I have sent them to.
