Is this a BUG in the INSTALLER?

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Tonight I installed AutoIt3 v3.3.6.0 and the latest SciTE4AutoIt3 on both my XPsp3 desktop machine and my W7 laptop.

On both systems, there is no entry under Tools for the Recorder and the Alt+F6 hotkey appears dead.

The Ctrl+F1 hotkey works to get SciTE Help on both systems, so hotkeys work.

I have searched the FAQs and this site for the past couple of hours and found nothing. I have uninstalled and reinstalled. I have downloaded new copies of the installers.

There is a Au3Record.exe under C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Extras\Au3Record (D: on the laptop) and it works to record to its own window, but the documented ways of starting it from inside SciTE do not appear to exist in this version.

Two machines, two OSes, same result.

Before I report this as a bug, has anyone else experienced this? Am I doing something dumb?

I have a workaround -- I can add Au3Record.exe to my quick-start menu, I can create a hotkey to start it, etc. But it would be nice to be able to do what the doc says it can do and automatically insert A3 code into SciTE.

Thanks for any help or advice,

August

Do you have a file open that is saved with a .au3 extension?

THANK YOU!

Years ago an engineer friend of mine was reviewing a Q&A item for the support column I was doing for a magazine and he said, "Normally I would say this is a case of RTFM, but it's not in the FM!"

Yes, I was expecting to generate the file this way, not knowing the file had to exist before it could be generated.

And boy does the Tools menu grow when there's a file!

Thanks again,

August
