Compiling with "Auto Increment" doesn't work since UP to c3.3.10.2

Recommended Posts



I just installed v3.3.10.2 on my PC, Autoit and the latest customized SciTE.

Previously I used, Option: "uninstall first" was used.


Now when compiling (CTRL+<F7>), TAB "Ressource Update", I check "auto increment", as always, but it does *NOT* increment.

When I check "Prompt to Auto Increment", I'm asked, if I would like to go from e.g. "" to "", but the according line is *NOT* updated with the new version number:


Other compiler options:

x86 version


Save a copy .. in .. resources

run AU3Check before compilation

stop on tidy errors

run obfuscator: /striponly


what did I mess up? Output see below, it tells, it *DID* update the version number, but that's not true.


Regards, Rudi.



This is a network drive, a SAMBA share, but it doesn't work either, when I store it to C:temp folder

I have just run auto-increment on both v3.3.10.2 and v3.3.11.3 and it increases the file version every time, whether I use the compile radio or an in-script directive. I am, however, running an x32 system so that is not definitive.

I am however running a slightly newer Beta version of Autoit3Wrapper which you can find here - could you please try it with that version. :)

Pardon the reply to a slightly aged topic.

I'm seeing this as well, and it appears to be due to the obfuscator. I've noticed in the build logs that it does claim to increment the version, and lo its does indeed do so: But to the *_obfuscated.au3 file created during the compile process.

I will admit that I haven't tried the beta version of the wrapper, but it would be a rather notable change in the logic to detect the obfuscator running and change the version in a different file.

This was an know issues and fixed in the latest version of AutoIt3Wrapper.

Be aware that Obfuscator is not supported any more and replaced by Au3Stripper.
