Find in Files doesn't work?

21 posts in this topic

Hello,

I try to 'find in files' _FF in *.au3, and it says:

>findstr /n /s /I "_FF" "*.au3"

>%1 is not a valid Win32 application.

The findstr command is alright from command prompt.

So it's a fault?

Richard.

I'm confused. Was there any AutoIt code involved in what you tried to do? If so, post what you did.

:)

Edit: Ahh, the Jos-y one brings clarity.

Believe the OP is using the SciTE "find in files" option with the SciTE lite included in the AutoIt3 installer.

If so, try the full SciTE4AutoIt3 package.

I'm using the full editor (with the too long tools menu) "Version 1.79 Jul 16 2009 18:30:31"

yes, I can put this in at a command prompt, and it works

findstr /n /s /I "_FF" "*.au3"

but the AutoIt/SciTE find in files dialogue always gives me an error.

I ran it from the SciTE "Find in Files" option and it gave me the shown output.

What OS are you running and is it x86 or x64?

I am on:OS:WIN_7/ CPU:X64 OS:X64

Windows XP SP3

Maybe there is something odd about the installation. I always put things in Programs not 'Program Files', but that shouldn't break it.

I have problems with this too (same environment as Jos). This happens to be the case for some time now.

I clearly remember it working and then after installing some new version of SciTE not. I can't remember what particular version it was when it stopped, but it could be a year ago, maybe even more.

edit: no I don't. I haven't used "Find in Files" recently. Just tried and it works fine.

A search for _ff works for me (same environment as Jos). We must have something you two* don't (or the opposite).

On a unrelated note, I never got why some things can't be searched for. Like X64.

>findstr /n /s /I "X64" "*"

>>>Search files of type * in C:\Users\Admiral\Dropbox\AutoIt Sync\Mina Småprogram : Search Subfolders :: Not Case Sensitive :

I just want to find a script that is x86 or x64 only, but noo, that's not possible :)

I tried uninstalling and starting again. With just the SciTE lite, the 'find in files' works fine. Download the full one from http://www.autoitscript.com/cgi-bin/getfile.pl?../autoit3/scite/download/SciTE4AutoIt3.exe and it doesn't work.

I have the same find-in-files problem. I am using the latest version (Version 2.27 Jun 24 2011 17:46:25).

>findstr /n /s /I "inputbox" "*.au3"

>%1 is not a valid Win32 application.

If I try the findstr command in a console window, it works fine.

Does anyone know how to correct the problem?

Regards,

Frank

Try replacing the findstr.exe in the SciTE directory with this version: findstr.exe

I just tried it on my system, I didn't even realize it was there before, and it's not working for me either. On Windows 7 x86 I get this from the SciTE console window:

>findstr /n /s /I "mp3" "*"

>This version of %1 is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need a x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.
