AutoIt Error: Variable must be of type "Object"

Postby snoopyjc » Sun Apr 16, 2017 11:48 pm

First time running the tool v10.6 on Windows 7 I get the error:

AutoIt Error
Line 23971 (File "C:\Program Files(x86)\Vistumbler\Vistumbler.exe"):
Error: Variable must be of type "Object".
[OK]

If I press [OK], the program exits.

Now what?

I believe 10.6 still needed to be run as an administrator (you can try right clicking the vistumbler icon and telling it to run as administrator.

You could try getting the latest beta, 10.6.4 Beta 5 from github (download vistumbler.exe and vistumbler_updater.exe from https://github.com/acalcutt/Vistumbler/ ... tumblerMDB and put them into the vistumbler directory, overwriting the existing files)

Hi!
Sorry but the fault seems independent of any privilege level, and updating to the most recent version doesn't fix the problem either. But at least its good that the problem occurs only when AP-scanning is actually done, thus disabling WiFi fixes the problem ;-)
Vistumbler is a good program I used on several computers, but seem not to be that portable. This fault occurs on a Dell XPS15.

The easiest way to help troubleshoot this would be to download autoit and run Vistumbler.au3 .Vistumbler.au3 is the source code, and running it directly will give me a line of code the error is on and a better error.

You can get autoit from https://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit/downloads/

The Vistumbler.au3 is in the same location as the vistumbler exe


You may also want to try switching to netsh mode (uncheck Options --> Use Native Wifi). If it crashes when turning on wifi scanning, maybe there is a issue with native wifi mode on your computer.

Running the script source in AutoIt gave location File: UDFs\AccessCom.au3 Line: 283
$o_adoRs.Fields($x - 1).Value = $ar_array[$x]
$o_adoRs.Fields($x - 1)^ERROR

Unchecking the UseNativeWiFi option doesn't change anything.

Does this help?
