Recommended Posts

Function keys do not work on my wireless keyboard.

How do I launch the recorder a different way?

Alt-F6 does not work, none of the function keys work.

Thanks,

Charles R.

Your keyboard probably has a F-lock button. One of my older Microsoft keyboards has one. Turn it on and have fun.

Thanks but that F-lock does not work either.

After some browsing I found that there is a well-hidden undocumented recorder buried in the AutoIT install, I found it at this path:

D:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Extras\Au3Record

Seems to work ok.

I am running Windows-7

It's not well hidden or undocumented, it's the same recorder that is run when you hit Alt-F6.

Also, you can start any of the items in the SciTe tools menu using your mouse, or hitting Alt-T and opening the menu, they don't need to be run using the shortcut keys.

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.
