AutoIt noob. Need help opening and editing a script.

6 posts in this topic

So I just started to introduce myself to making scripts, read a couple articles and got my hands dirty. 

Had stumbled on this particular script and wanted to look at it as an example. I tried opening it with the scite editor but it keeps on giving me this kind of cryptic text. Can anyone help me with this?

There are a couple thousand lines of these by the way.

That looks like a compiled script (an exe).  You need to open the source code with an au3 file extension to edit.

P.S. Welcome to the forum. 

P.P.S. I suggest reading the help file (it is excellent) and trying to start with an example from scratch.

Are you trying to open source code (*.au3) or a compiled script? (*.exe)

Thank you!

I tried converting the exe script to au3 using (i dont know if i am allowed to mention a 3rd party software) [spoil]myexetoaut[/spoil] and then open the overlay file with the editor. I thought it was obfuscated at first but it seems that i havent actually decompiled it. Any way how to do so?

Whoa!  That is strictly forbidden and will get you expelled from the forum in a hurry.  You can't even mention decompiling here - please read the forum rules.

P.S. You sound much less like a novice and much more like someone who wants help decompiling with your latest post.

tedg,

You appear not to have read the Forum rules since your arrival. Please do read them - particularly the bit about not discussing decompiling - before you post again. And never ever mention decompiling again or you will be permanently removed from the community. :naughty:
