using InternetExplorer.Application to got multiple URLs RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a PS script like this:

    $ie = New-Object -com InternetExplorer.Application 
    $ie.visible=$true
    $ie.navigate("https://fasttest.usask.ca/StaticLogon.asp?ReturnUrl=%2f")
     Start-Sleep -seconds 2;
     $ie.navigate("http://www.usask.ca")

    the problem i am having is that the second navigate doesn't work I get this error:

    PS C:\Users\rwm132> T:\work\scripts\FastTest.ps1
    The interface is unknown. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706B5)
    At T:\work\scripts\FastTest.ps1:13 char:2
    +  $ie.navigate("http://www.oursite.local")
    +  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : OperationStopped: (:) [], COMException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException

    how would I once I am at one page on a website via $ie.navigate(URL1) then goto URL2 in that same browser window?

  • what the!!!

    $ie = New-Object -com InternetExplorer.Application 
    $ie.visible=$true
    
    $ie.navigate("https://www.usask.ca")
     Start-Sleep -seconds 2;
     $ie.navigate("http://engr.usask.ca")



    can you try that above.

    when I use it I get the error on the 2nd navigate:

     

    PS C:\Users\rwm132> T:\work\scripts\FastTest2.ps1
    The object invoked has disconnected from its clients. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80010108 (RPC_E_DISCONNECTED))
    At T:\work\scripts\FastTest2.ps1:8 char:2
    +  $ie.navigate("http://engr.usask.ca")
    +  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : OperationStopped: (:) [], COMException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException


    PS C:\Users\rwm132>

  • Not a scripting issue.  I can run that exact code with no issues.  Perhaps you have browser problems, malware or proxy issues.
