You created an AU3 file and you compile it. However, the file creates another AU3 file (as you say and you wanna run it).

Something like:

Compiled.exe [/ErrorStdOut] [/AutoIt3ExecuteScript file] [params ...]

should help.

Hi MKISH,

Can you provide example where your solution is used?

Because right now it is not working in my case.

You would need to use Aut2Exe or Aut2Exe_x64 to compile the au3 script to an executable program. You would have to use FileInstall to have it added to the first script so that it's available to be used if AutoIt isn't installed on the computer you're running your script on.


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.

Hi BrewManNH,

I have written one .au3 file which has code to create one .au3 file and compile that file through program only, so I wanted to know is there any function to convert .au3 file to .exe file?

Also is there any other way to achieve the same?

I already answered that, you have to use Aut2Exe to compile the script to an executable, if you are compiling the script on a computer that does not have AutoIt installed, you will need to provide the program with your script. If your main script is compiled, you can use FileInstall to include it with the main executable. There's no other way to do it.
