'My friend gets: 'not a valid win32 application'

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Ok, so I made my little program and once my friend opens it on his computer "not a valid win32 application" appears. The icon image is a blank ico. for him as well...weird, anyone have any thoughts on this?

Edit: I think I know why. When converting from au3 to exe I only have two options, x64 or console...instead of ANSI and UNIcode.

There is no need to choose between ANSI and Unicode since ANSI-support has been romved. If your friend has Win95 you have to use an older AutoIt-Version.

Also you should untick the x64-checkbox since this would result in an x64-exe wich doesn't work on 32-bit/x86.

Edit: Also, do not activate "Console" since this results in a DOS-window wich you can write to with ConsoleWrite. So make sure none of these two checkboxes is ticked.

Yep.. As everyone said it's the x64 option that gives that error. It will only work on 64-bit OSes if that option is ticked =)
