AutoIt((and Beta) Windows 7

7 posts in this topic

I've been using Autoit for some time and have had great success with it. i recently piked up a win 7 machine (64 bit) and things are acting somewhat oddly. ALL, I am sure, are windows 7 related.

1) Even though I have toggled on beta.. SCITE uses only the production release to compile build

2) Compiling always has issues saving the exe. If I delete the exe then it seems ok.. but it has trouble overwriting the existing exe.

There are more but I think once things start to work correctly the rest will fade away.

Have we a general forum topic for win 7 ? I HAVE looked but I haven't seen anything related.

ANY suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thnx

What are you talking about, there's no beta.

On my system I have

v3.3.5.6 (beta)

and

v3.3.6.1

Right, but why would you want to run a beta version that's older than the current release ?

When beta is toggled ON..the tools options change in SCITE.. That does not occur on Win 7.. or perhaps it's setting but I haven't found it.

Hold on to that case !

Have just installed 3.3.5.6 and can reproduce the behaviour you describe.

I installed the beta (like 3.3.6.1) in 32 bit mode ("Use X64 tools -> No")

If I then select "Compile" and "AutoIt version to use" -> beta and "Output arch" -> X64

it will compile fine, but use 3.3.6.1 ...

When I use X86 arch output, it switches to beta OK for me.

Haven't tried what happens when installing both with "Use X64 tools -> Yes"

cheers,

[update]

When you select beta in AutoIt3Wrapper, it will add this line to the top of your source:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Version=Beta

if you change that to

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Version=beta

it correctly selects the beta for me during compile

It appears to be corrected in the beta AutoIt3Wrapper v.2.0.1.33

get it here: Scite4AutoIt3 beta
