Error with AutoIt 1-2-3

Recommended Posts

Hello all.   I downloaded and installed AutoIt 1-2-3 along with SciTE - Editor.   When running AutoIt 1-2-3, Step Number 2 , I get the error below:



I downloaded both programs twice in case there was some corruption the first time but it didn't help.

Thoughts?   :)


Regards, Dave

Hi, daveydoom, welcome to the forum. Unfortunately, the last update to this venerable tutorial was in 2009, and AutoIt has changed a lot since then. If you are looking for examples and tutorials, I think the Wiki is your best bet.

Lesson #1 was not meant to "run" 

; This is the SciTE editor.
; used for:
; - Scripting your programs.
; - Syntax Checking for errors.
; - Tidy (clean-up) your programs.
; - Create executable programs.
; - and Much, Much More!
; Notice the semi-colon ";" on the left for comments.
For ; no semi-colon is used for commands. ; Notice the "for" is highlighted and known as a command. 
; other commands include,
If, And, Or, Then, Next, While, Wend. ; there are more commands to learn later.
; there is no, "Go-to", in AutoIt, you can use.
Call. ; to call a Function, Functions will be taught later. 
; Another way to comment is to use, "#cs" for comments start and, "#ce" for comments end.
here are my comments.
you can have as many comment lines as you would like.

Notice the first command is "EXIT"
