AutoIt Error - Unable to open the script file.

Recommended Posts

Somo, how is that related at all to the thread you're posting in? Considering this thread is a year old and is not related to what you posted, plus you obviously missed the sticky at the top of this forum regarding the issue, you might want to read that before posting about that in your own related thread.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Sorry for waking an old thread but I had a similar issue and identified the problem.  I was compiling a 32 bit version of the script and placing it in the system32 folder.  Once executed it would open fine but then fail to load the script file as the IO redirection would point to the SysWOW64 and not system32 thus... File not found.  To correct, either recompile as a native 64 bit exe or move the file to a location that doesn't suffer from folder redirection.

Okay I had a bunch of Autoitscript files running beautifully.  I moved them to another boot disk and kept getting this "Unable to open script" error.  Funny thing was I'd click on the program and it would either give me this error or, and this is the strange part, - it would start the program and then delete itself.  Yes delete itself, the .exe was gone and not even in the recycle bin.  So I ended up recompiling the source and noticed I was at Ver: 3.3.10.0 not Ver: 3.3.12.0 .  Recompiled with the v12 and everything worked.

Also forgot to mention that in one case recompiling did not work with x86 v12 so compiled with x64 v12 and it worked then recompiled with x86 v12 and then it worked.  Strange.

If you get the "AutoIt Error - Unable to open the script file" try recompiling with the latest version of AutoitScript.
