Invoke-UiaWindowTransformMove : The pipeline input is null RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone, so i have been looking at my script for a while trying stuff here and here but, maybe since i just began with Powershell but ....

    So far, the script does open the windows, it does select it, but then, script break, telling me the pipeline input is null, when i did assigned an int var to it.

    Any idea please ? Thank !

    Function Open-Program ($Name, $Height, $Width, $MoveX, $MoveY, $Path)
    Start-Process -FilePath $Path
    Start-Sleep -S 2
    Start-Sleep -S 2
    Invoke-UiaWindowTransformMove -TransformMoveX $MoveX -TransformMoveY $MoveY |
    Invoke-UiaWindowTransformResize -TransformResizeHeight $Height -TransformResizeWidth $Width

    $Steam = "C:\Users\aznet\Desktop\PS\Steam.lnk"

    Open-Program -Path $Steam -MoveX 1 -MoveY 1 -Height 1000 -Width 1000

  • I managed to get it work at my job for some reason, i tried remake it at home and for some odd reason i get this error, it looks like a syntax error ...

    The UIAutomation work great i can tell :D

    What i think, it work great under windows 7, but not window 10, only thing i see.
