Since you already had the problem with the RC3 .bat files, it might be that you have some encoding problems on your system.

smrk28 (syedmoonisraza) wrote :

I have tried it on two machines, lab PC and my work system (win XP SP3).
same error at both places.

Is there any way to debug or look into this encoding problem?

I had used RC3 on personla labtop few weeks back and it was working fine.

Currently, i am trying to explore sikuli as an option for GUI automation.

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) wrote :

ok, try the following in your folder D:\Tools\sikuli\Sikuli-IDE-1.0.0-Win32\

java -Xms64M -Xmx512M -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Dsikuli.Debug=3 -jar sikuli-ide.jar

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) wrote :

BTW: Sikuli currently probably is the best free GUI automation tool.

... and if ever get it working, use the new version ;-)

No Doubt, it is simple and best tool :) ! better than Autoit etc

ok, then you can try the following:

make a command file e.g.

mySikuli.cmd

with this content:
SETLOCAL
set SIKULIX_HOME=D:\Tools\sikuli\Sikuli-IDE-1.0.0-Win32
PATH=%SIKULIX_HOME%libs;%ProgramFiles%\Java\jre7\bin;%PATH%
java -Xms64M -Xmx512M -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Dsikuli.Debug=3 -jar %SIKULIX_HOME%\sikuli-ide.jar
ENDLOCAL

and come back with the result.

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) wrote :

if it still does not launch use this java command in the command file:

java -Xms64M -Xmx512M -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Dsikuli.Debug=3 -Dsikuli.console=false -jar %SIKULIX_HOME%\sikuli-ide.jar

though folded here must all be on one line

look for errors in the command line window.

Hi RaiMan,

Finally some progress in this problem.

after adding following path in my system PATH variable, i am able to launch Sikuli-IDE with your commands.

D:\Tools\sikuli\Sikuli-IDE-1.0.0-Win32\libs

Now, IDE is getting launched with both of these new cmd files...

test1.cmd

SETLOCAL
set SIKULIX_HOME=D:\Tools\sikuli\Sikuli-IDE-1.0.0-Win32
PATH=%SIKULIX_HOME%libs;%ProgramFiles%\Java\jre7\bin;%PATH%
java -Xms64M -Xmx512M -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Dsikuli.Debug=3 -jar %SIKULIX_HOME%\sikuli-ide.jar
ENDLOCAL

test2.cmd

java -Xms64M -Xmx512M -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Dsikuli.Debug=3 -Dsikuli.console=false -jar %SIKULIX_HOME%\sikuli-ide.jar

can, ypu please, help me to conclude this problem now ?

Or how can i execute sikuli executable files without launcing IDE ?

Sorry, but the solution in comment #14 has an error.
(missing the \ in PATH=%SIKULIX_HOME%libs; ... )

It must be:

make a command file e.g.

mySikuli.cmd

with this content:
SETLOCAL
set SIKULIX_HOME=D:\Tools\sikuli\Sikuli-IDE-1.0.0-Win32
PATH=%SIKULIX_HOME\%libs;%ProgramFiles%\Java\jre7\bin;%PATH%
java -Xms64M -Xmx512M -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Dsikuli.Debug=3 -jar %SIKULIX_HOME%\sikuli-ide.jar
ENDLOCAL

No need to have D:\Tools\sikuli\Sikuli-IDE-1.0.0-Win32\libs additionally in system Path.
