Re: GetText in Windows 10

I was hoping MS would be able to come up with a way to deal with Microsoft's "Improvements"
I really don't want to have to move to a different automation tool!

Re: Move mouse (To image) with animation

Marcus' approach will work you just have to convert the absolute values to variables based on the window location. You can change this to move to the middle of the window, or 10pts off the top left corner or whatever you need. Target Position can be checked and updated during the loop. // Set the cu...

Re: Mounted Network Drive Not Working

Verify how you are addressing the folder

is it j:\QA\Documents....
Or are you using \\QAServer\Documents\....

Sometimes a mapped server does not play well with some of the commands (and other times it is fine???)

Re: Windows 10?

There are significant issues with getting text off of the screen!

I had to roll back a couple of test machines because scripts were failing based on this.

The scripts run fine, its just this 1 aspect that is a problem.

I have a script that has been running for a couple years on Win7. On a machine that I upgraded to Win10 it fails where I was grabbing some text off of the screen. I have tried the GetText variations and GetWindow variations. I have tried the TextCaptureWizard. None of these get the text I need. (App...

KillProcess processname*

I know I have seen how to find and kill a process or a variant of a process
Notepad_1.exe, Notepad_2.exe etc.

Can someone point to a thread that covers that?
Thanks!
