Re: Can AHK use third-party modules like Python? Topic is solved

Many thanks, @SOTE, for the link to lxiko's compendium of third-party libraries on GitHub. I wasn't aware of it before.

Re: I need help with complicated script

In addition to the answer above by mikeyww , you could use the Windows registry to store/retrieve data to save reading/writing to a seperate file. I use the registry because I am more familiar with AHK's registry-related commands and haven't put the time into learning INI-related commands but, from ...

Re: Unblocker script works in Win 10 but not Win 7 Topic is solved

Hello RickC. I wonder which method you used in the end. I am also dealing with the same problem. I cannot find out if some files on the local network are blocked. It was 4 years ago now and I have only one device left still running Windows 7 (and that now uses PowerShell 5... so it became a moot po...

Re: Use Clipboard instead of temp-file from CMD-prompt - Possible? Topic is solved

Clip refers to C:\Windows\System32\clip.exe. As the filepath is already referenced by the PATH environment variable you only need to use the command clip itself to refer to the command and its filepath.

Hope this helps...

Re: Adding titles, images, and files

As an alternative, EMDB (https://www.emdb.eu/) does this for you automatically. Just point it a location where movies are stored using the Hard Disk icon in the menubar.

Re: How to send a ping signal to detect if a computer is online or not

How to send a ping signal to detect if a computer is online or not A 'ping' does not detect whether a computer is online or not... it just detects whether a remote device is configured to respond to an 'echo request'. As such, it's not a failsafe method to test whether a remote computer is 'online'.

Re: Run A Program As Admini But Without The UAC Prompt

RunAsTask() as been around for 6 years. I use use to run a PowerShell script to update Chocolatey installed apps. I know the risks and I do not need to be reminded every time I run the script!. I don't believe there is an issue here. RunAsTask() can be found here: https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/...

Re: Script Runs When NO Mouse Movement

Or, if you need your script/program to start earlier in the boot process (for example, to run Process Monitor to watch login events), use 'run as TaskMan'. It's a registry location that runs a value (executable) assigned to a Taskman entry in the context of WINLOGON, i.e. even before Explorer waits ...

Re: Random behavior in script. How do you know where Sleep commands are necessary?

I tend to agree with Nixcalo 's assessment of Windows 10 but there's a reason. By comparison with Windows 7/8.x, Windows 10 does a lot more constant background processing, particularly logging but also registry accesses. If you use Sysinternals/TechNet' s free, portable Process Monitor ( https://doc...
