Hello people

the weirdest thing has happened with one of my scripts. Iv come back after about 4 wks to check on this small side project i was creating and of which was all working i even sent out a few beta compiled executables which worked.

I attempt to execute the script and it would not launch it generates an error in Autoit:

tutorial assistant.au3 (49) : ==> Only Object-type variables allowed in a "With" statement.:
With $oFlash With ^ ERROR >Exit code: 1 Time: 0.989 Below is some of the code if i comment it out, the rest of the script works just lose my customized splash screen I spent about 13hrs creating the .swf and figuring out how to make a custom launch splash, I'm still learning with Autoit. not sure if someone has messed with my scripts #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <IE.au3> ; Hides the system tray icon TraySetState(2) ;installs the background GUI image to local users %temp% folder FileInstall("spiderweb523.jpg", @TempDir & "\test123.png", 1) FileInstall("it tut.swf", @TempDir & "\it tut.swf", 1) ;External SWF File Name (assumed in same folder)$swffile = @TempDir & "\it tut.swf" ;intro swf file

EndWith

sleep(17000) ;sleep for 17sec which runs 17s of the flash file

GUIDelete() ; deletes gui i.e. flash object

Currently running:

Iv uninstalled completely and reinstalled just encase the required Include was broken.

created a new script and just added what is posted in this post, still same error

I'm thinking some noobish over sight on my behalf

any help would be great.

Has your flash player been updated since it worked? There have been numerous splashy reports about new security updates for flash player.

hello failedtocompile,

no need to feel like a noob, youve just left a semi-colon at the end of the object reference.

you mention you've been working with flash, im not surprised you've put it there, gets confusing switching between two languages.

methodclass

That's not a problem. The semicolon in AutoIt begins an in-line comment. For example, this is valid:
Global \$avArray[3] = ["Alpha", _ ; This is the first index [0]
"Beta", _ ; Second index [1]
"Gamma"] ; Last index [2]

No help over at the Adobe forums. nothing i could reference with anyway

Even after 2 re installs of Adobe 10 it didn't work, but today i noticed the local install was missing C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\*

so re installed from another flash10ax.msi.

think maybe the msi didn't work correctly. i double checked script operation now all working. so was a bit of a noobish over sight by myself
