"Error: opening the destination file" when compiling

5 posts in this topic

Before I get flamed for not searching on this.. I did. And those people were told to check the read-only bit on the parent folder.

I did. The parent folder, as well as the script I'm trying to compile are:

-not read-only

-have me as the Owner

-Have full-control permissions set

Yet I get this error every time I try to compile a script. I was able to just 2 days ago. I still have a script and it's corresponding exe in this same directory. If I rename the exe and try to re-compile the script, I get the error.

Incidentally this is happening everywhere on my C: drive that I try to compile a script. But like I said , this directory in particular I can confirm allowed this action just 2 days ago. What gives?

FYI this is Windows 7 Ultimate, 32-bit

Anyone come across this problem as well?

club,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :x

Your search was not that thorough - there are a quite a few other remedies that have been suggested in the past: :shifty:

- 1. Your AV might be the problem - try disabling it or setting an exclude option for the folder/file.

- 2. Having an Explorer window open can also prevent compilation - but do not ask me why.

Try those and see if the problem goes away. :P

P.S. I give you credit for not trying to compile an running executable. :nuke:

Also if you're using Obfuscator and interrupted the compilation, Obfuscator.exe might still be running orphaned (check taskmanager).
