-> Warning: Unable to open au3.api. Skipping ProperCase function for KeyWords/Function/Macros

Happens whenever Tidy is called...

(Would try the search tool, but it "helpfully" changes search strings to ensure no matches to au3.api.....)

Is the file present in your autoitscite folder ?

C:Program Files (x86)AutoIt3SciTETidy contains Au3.api

security = read and execute....

I have seen this pop up here before, but unfortunately cannot find the thread.

I think it had something to do with where autoit is installed on a 64 bit OS.

I'd go for a wipe and re-install (assuming this has not just happened out of the blue)

i had also observed the same issue on win7 x64.

this was after installing AutoIt 3.3.8.1 + SciTE4AutoIt3 6/10/2012 (3.2.0).
tidy.exe 2.2.2.0

after i did the following (just once!) the symptom disappeared and never came back again:
 - start scite.exe with "run as administrator" to elevate the process
 - compile some script so tidy will be used once
 - exit scite

so i assume it is related to UAC process elevation:

tidy.exe tries to write some parameters to a location that is only allowed for elevated processes.
once it has written this initial parameter everything runs fine.
