Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

The source code for AutoIt has not been open source for many years. The last open source version can be downloaded here. I have no idea whether DLLCall was included in that version - look in the Change Log to find out. ;)

If you have the file autoit-v3.1.0-src.exe, then you also have the README.txt file that is in it. In there, you should have noticed this section at the top of the readme.

NOTE: For obvious reasons this archive doesn't contain all the new features in the current

version of AutoIt. The code for these features may be made available at a later date.

Excluded features are:


- DllCall

- ControlListView

- InetGet

It appears that it's not included.

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.

aw, i thought so...

well, cant blame autoit for make it close source

i guess i just have to ask my problem here then...

I've been looking for hours on how to use autoit.dll on my c++ project(it is allowed right?). first off i do LoadLibrary then used GetProcAddress for the function

im using AU3_Run for testing porpuses, is this right for the Run typedef? typedef long(CALLBACK* RUN)(LPCWSTR,LPCWSTR,long);

i just started c++ coding this month, and i only know the basics, just forcing myself to the limits to learn new stuff
