Problem with: SciTE Script Editor


Recommended Posts


(I apologize for my English is not my native language)

I am a new user, and I recently downloaded AutoIt. I opened the editor and I wrote the first lene code to test the proper operation:

MsgBox (0, "Window," "Hello World")

I saved the file and then I clicked on: Tools -> Go Coompile Build ... these buttons do not work, written out:

>C:program filesautoit3autoit3.exe "C:UsersxxDesktopTest.au3"

"C:program" non è riconosciuto come comando interno o esterno,

un programma eseguibile o un file batch.

>Exit code: 1 Time: 0.219


> C:Program Filesautoit3 autoit3.exe "C:Users xxDesktopTest.au3"

"C: Program" is not recognized as internal or external command,

an executable program or batch file.

> Exit code: 1 Time: 0,219

How can I fix this?

Thank you and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

I'm also having this issue. Just updated to 3.3.8 and I can no longer run anything from the editor. Tried completely uninstalling, removing all related files and registry setttings I could find, then reinstalling and I'm still having the same issue.

MsgBox(0, "Test", "Hello!")

Results in:

>C:program filesautoit3autoit3.exe "C:Users*****Desktopasdf.au3"
'C:program' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
>Exit code: 1   Time: 0.230

Looks like a simple matter of missing quotation marks when it attempts to run the script, though I can't figure out how to fix it.

Also, dll functions like DllStructCreate() are no longer blue/italicized. Is this intentional?

I upgraded this afternoon to 3.3.8 and downloaded/installed the FULL SCITE editor at the same time. I'm having some problems but not this one. Programs are running from the editor the same as before upgrade.

The Lite version of SciTE, that comes with the AutoIt3 installer, still has a hardcoded path in its configuration and will point to: "c:/program files/autoit3/autoit3.exe".

This will cause issues on x64 systems.

I have made some changes to the configuration for the next version that should handle this, ut would advice anybody to use the Full SciTE4AutoIt3 installer anyway as that has soo much more options and tools included.

so x64 cant use the full editor?

Hi and Welcome to the forums!!

You didn't really read the thread, did you? It's the LITE version (you get with AutoIt) that has problems. SciTE4AutoIt3 (full editor) is perfectly fine.
