This is because just 'run...

Re: antivir related popups

I haven't used Avira for a while but the popups were the 'In Product Messaging' process.

Try process, close, ipmgui.exe

Whilst carrying out a number of consecutive actions, some of which can take some time, I would like the text equivalent of a Progress bar, preferably scrolling upwards so only the previous x no. of results are in view at any one time.

Re: powershell objects to Autohotkey

If you mean PowerShell cmdlets then it's very easy to wrap them in AHK. For example: psScript = ( Stop-Process -ProcessName explorer ) Run PowerShell.exe -Command %psScript%,, hide I use this to refresh the Windows desktop. It's also fairly easy to build queries and redirect output, for example: psS...

Re: Run on startup

I’m assuming that means just not to post it though. Does that mean I can still ask considering I’m not going to distribute it to anyone besides him? Asking about how to get an AHK script to run from startup is fine. It was the prank nature and the specifics of your script (e.g. the use of SoundSet ...

Re: RegRead does not find

It looks like one app is 64-bit and the other is 32-bit. I'm going to guess that you're using a 64-bit version of Windows and possibly a 32-bit version of AHK? If so, note the documentation "To read and write entries from the 64-bit sections of the registry in a 32-bit script or vice versa, use SetR...

Re: How to implement progress bar Topic is solved

@qwerty12 - The PowerShell amendment works perfectly. :bravo:

As you suspected, the WMI variant locked up until the restore point had been created.

However, no matter. I only needed one to work so thank you.
