AutoIt/scite configuration in my laptop. Cant open scripts with scite

Recommended Posts

AntiFros

So I downloaded and instaled autoit v3.3.10.2  and scite into my laptop.

I tried "Open with.." or something like that (I dont know how it calls in english) but it didnt worked.

 

I tried reinstaling both autoit and scite, restarted my computer many times... Also there is no option in creating new autoit script file. I mean when you click right button and there is list where you can choose to create new notepad, office documents etc,

Any ideas how I can fix it? Im using win 7

Right click the file > Properties > then click on "Change" button, the one next to the notepad icon, and select SciTE from the menu or by searching for it. then try and see how it goes

what happens after you select scite and click Ok in the Properties window? it should open with scite when you double click it after and the file icon should change to scite icon, post a screenshot of the file after you set it to open with scite in the properties window

Have you used the installers when installing AutoIt3 and zSciTE4AutoIt3?

Run SciTEConfig, select the other tools tab and click on the "Run AutoIt3 Registry check"  and post the output of follow the recommendations.

Still can't find solution. I tried reinsalling few times, tried to use SciTE4AutoIt3.zip.

Tried "Right click the file > Properties > then click on "Change" button, the one next to the notepad icon, and select SciTE from the menu or by searching for it." but see what happens --> https://www.dropbox.com/s/ohvsngl6s4bl3sf/Video1.avi   (video).

I don't know why SciTE isn't in the "Recommended Programs" list for you, there seem to be something strange with your setup.

 About the video, you clearly have Wordpad selected when you press "Ok" so it should be obvious why that doesn't work. Open the "Other Programs" list (Kitos programos in the video) and look for SciTE there.

Did you actually install Scite4AutoIt3 or did you just unzip it into the folder? Did you install AutoIt3 or did you just unzip that into the folder? When I say install, I mean did you run the installer or did you use the zip?

I would think this is pretty clear about what needs to happen.....no?

An installer can't be expected to undo what you have done manually yourself when you specified to always use Wordpad to open AU3 files.

The video he posted shows that manual resetting isn't working either, which obviously should.

I looked up the problem you are facing, and your best bet might be using this tool -> http://windowsxp.mvps.org/openwithadd.htm

Use it at your own risk tho, I did not try it or even download it, so good luck.

I used installer for both autoit and scite.

Jos, so how I should change " :ApplicationsWORDPAD.EXE" to scite?

The output shown suggests to make the following changes with RegEdit:

  1. remove (rename) "HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerFileExts.au3Userchoice"
  2. Registry key: "HKCR.au3" - "Default" is currently set to au3_auto_file   ==> This should be changed to "AutoIt3Script" (or "AutoIt3ScriptBeta")

Try that and see if that solves your issue.
