Compiling a very simple program consisting of one line - ConsoleWrite("Test Output") - fails the upx step with a "rename error".

Wondering if anyone has encountered this.

This is the console output:

>"C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\AutoIt3Wrapper.exe" /ShowGui /in "C:\Test\runme.au3"
+>10:17:30 Starting AutoIt3Wrapper v.    Environment(Language:0409  Keyboard:00000409  OS:WIN_7/  CPU:X64 OS:X86)
-> 1 Change(s) made.
>Running:(\Program Files\AutoIt3\aut2exe\aut2exe.exe  /in "C:\Test\runme.au3" /out "C:\Test\runme.exe" /nopack /comp 2
+>10:17:46 Aut2exe.exe ended.rc:0
>Running:(\Program Files\AutoIt3\aut2exe\upx.exe" --best --compress-icons=0 -qq "C:\Test\runme.exe"
upx: C:\Test\runme.exe: IOException: rename error: File exists

Thank you

One thing to try is make sure that you don't have Windows Explorer open to the folder that your .exe is being created in.

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.

Make sure the file permissions did not somehow get changed.

My UDFs are generally for me. If they aren't updated for a while, it means I'm not using them myself. As soon as I start using them again, they'll get updated.

As pointed out by BrewManNH, the problem was with Windows Explorer being open to the folder. Simply navigating up, or down one level in the folder structure allows UPX to complete.

What surprises me is that I've been working with AutoIt for quite some time now and somehow never ran into this. Possibly because in the past, I've used Primal Script primarily and launch the script to exe converter outside the editor. Another possibility is the fact that I've been using an XP machine until a few months ago for development, which I finally upgraded to Windows 7.

Thank you, much appreciated.
