Help file missing / not there

3 posts in this topic

Hey Guys, It's been awhile.

I just upgraded to the latest version (uninstalled old version first). Now, it appears when I click on a command (MouseClickDrag) I can not open the info on it. The help file will not open, even if I use F1. What did I do wrong with the installation to prevent my search?

Thanks,

BTW - I'm using version 1.79 of SciTE and AutoIt version v3.3.2.0

I found after a recent AutoIt 3.3.2.0 and SciTE 1.79 installation, the F1 button was not activating the help file while in SciTE.

My fix was/is:-

Under the SciTe menu "Options", click on and open the file called "Open au3.properties".

This is the correction to that file at about line #279.

# Commands to for Help F1
#~ command.help.$(au3)=$(CurrentWord)!$(autoit3dir)\autoit.chm
#~ command.help.subsystem.$(au3)=4
;command.help.$(au3)=$(autoit3dir)\Autoit3Help.exe $(CurrentWord)
command.help.$(au3)=$(autoit3dir)\Autoit3Help.exe "$(CurrentWord)"
command.help.subsystem.$(au3)=2

The change is comment one line and un-comment another existing line.

Then save the file.

Malkey, thanks. This did the trick. ;)
