RUN vs EDIT

8 posts in this topic

When I double-click on an au3 file or icon, the file opens for editing.

How do I configure so that double-clicking runs the script rather than opens it for editing?

Thanks.

Re-install AutoIt and carefully read the prompts - one of them addresses this issue.

OR

change the settings manually via explorer, tools, folder options, file types, au3 ext, advanced, Run Script, ---- change the program... on second thought, just re-install AutoIt :-)

Or run SciTEConfig and select Run in stead of Edit as the default action .. :(

SciTEConfig is the way to go.

I tried reinstalling but the dialog box that gives you the choice of run versus edit didn't come up. It didn't come up twice as a matter of fact :(

Thanks everyone!!

You can either :

- uninstall/Install Autoit3 to reset it to Run..

- reinstall SciTE4AutoIt3 and specify Run when prompted

- Run SciteConfig ...

Can't you do it via the registry key

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AutoIt3Script\Shell\Run\Command

It also as the options for "Edit, Run, Tidy, Open, Compile". When you double click something it's "Run", correct? For me "Run" is AutoIt.exe while "Edit" is Scite.exe. Just change the appropriate keys to what you want them to be opened via.

Doh... I knew that I should have waited until I was on a computer where I could try the AutoIt install and remind myself where I had seen that prompt. It was the SciTe install that I was thinking of. Senility strikes again.

Got it fixed yet? Looks like you are in good hands, so...

Change the default value here, for regedit method:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AutoIt3Script\Shell
