Problem with scite

Recommended Posts

JohnOne

I don't know if this is scite4autoit specific, or even just me specific, but it's becoming a bit of a pain for me.

I have the feeling of deja vu writing this too.

Scenario, I open a file with scite4autoit (right click .au3 file select edit.

Once I have done that, I cannot rename the folder which that (or any files opened with scite) resides, not even after having closed the tab, and scite itself.

Perhaps there is some sort of fancy coding to unlock a folder or something, but it just seems overkill.

Nothing short of a reboot allows me to rename that folder once a file in it has been open in scite.

I can rename the files, I can delete the files within the folder, but the folder stays locked and stubborn.

Wonder if anyone else has this issue, and if it a larger scite issue.

Nope, all works normally for me. Have you tried an app like Unlocker or Process Explorer to find out what exactly is locking the folder / file?

JohnOne,

I can confirm the same behaviour on my Vista x32 SP2 machine. But it is not something I do too often, so I am not surprised that I have not noticed it before.

Win 7 x64, SciTE 3.25. No issues for me. Folder is locked while the file is open of course, but as soon as it's closed I can rename the folder.

It probably has something to do with the way the workdir is set when SciTE is shelled via the explorer OPEN option.

Open another file in another directory and the issue is gone for the first opened file/directory

I see the same issue as the OP on Win7 prof x64 with SciTE 3.2.5.

I've not in the past, but I've taken to copying the contents of folder to new one, and renaming old, indicating the changes I made in script or any components for purposes of backup.

I have a file in startup folder at the moment to remind me to rename folders when I restart computer :geek:

Confirmed, that'll do for me, cheers.

Do you keep SciTE open and use one instance of SciTE? Edited by Jos

I use one instance of SciTE (multiple tabs), and I was closing it before attempting a rename. OP said he had to reboot. I see the problem if you close the script tab but leave SciTE open (working dir issue as you said). But closing SciTE frees everything up.

I killed all my "Autostart" tasks with path to the autoit folder and ... rename succesful.

Rename was not possible due to an EXE was running from this folder.

Nothing to do with SciTE.

I find this happens when a script somehow becomes "detached" from Scite and is running independently. For example, when I press F1 it occasionally opens a second instance of my script [detached from Scite's script control Ex; Stop Execution] and if my script doesn't have a GUI, I don't notice this happening. So even after Scite is closed, the directories are locked because my script is still running hidden.
