Compiled AutoIT - @OSVersion in Windows 8 Returns UNKNOWN

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I have a compiled AutoIT script that when run on Windows 8, does not work correctly. I tracked it down partly to the fact that @OSVersion returns the value UNKNOWN.

If I run the AutoIT script prior to compiling it to EXE, It returns the correct value , "WIN_8".

This script works fine, compiled or not, on Windows 7 and previous.

What am I missing here?

Thanks,

Matt

The script was probably compiled using an earlier version of AutoIt that doesn't recognize Windows 8.


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.

Doh! That's probably it. I was running a slightly older version locally....and compiling with that one. I'm waiting for the Windows 8 user to test it out now that I've upgraded and recompiled. If that's NOT the problem I'll be back, but I'm figuring that will fix it.

Thanks,

Matt
