Hi All,

I'm Trying to find the source code for Expect 5.40 for Windows.

All I could find in here / sourcefroge / Google is version 5.43 source code.

This Version is somehow diffrent from 5.40, and when compiling an executable file form TCl code + Expect 5.43 using the TclAPP.exe with TDK 5.2

I'm having dependancy issues + timout issues form the Expect modle.

Hence, i Would like to use Expect 5.40 which already proven to be more reliable for my needs.

Can anyone advise ?

Many thanks,

which is the correct place to ask for the OpenSourced bits.

A caveat:
I doubt very much that Expect 5.40 will actually work for you unless you are still on XP. That's code from 2005, and does not account for Vista UAC or Windows 7 DEP.

We know that Expect 5.40 works well on those OS
All that is required is small enviroument changes like you mention -
Disable the DEP and UAC.

Other than that, works well.

BTW - still nowhere to find the Expect 5.40 source code.
im still looking

Thanks for your feddback on this
