How to GLOBALLY install latest beta as the default/primary au3 version?

3 posts in this topic

Sorry I rarely give up attempts to fix things like this but I've already spent 4 hours trying different methods and suggestions. Here is what I'd like to do.

- Make 3.3.13.1 the default/production/primary installed au3 version, like as if it were no longer in beta. Yes I'm aware that this may go against some people's religion around here and for that I appologize.

- F5 and Ctrl+F7 to run/compile it. I am prepared to write and install yet another windows service to monitor for scite active window and forcefully take over these hotkeys if I have to.

- Explorer context menus and "open with" to use 3.3.13.1

- Also curious how to alter the defaults for au3wrapper

Ideally of course I'm hoping there is just one granddaddy config variable or script that will fix all my problems and just swap the prod and beta versions just like back in the day, but if not thats fine I've come to you now fully prepared to do things the hard way as long as it will work.

Install the release version, then download the beta zip file, unzip the contents of that file into the location that the release version is, and overwrite what's in there.


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.
