Where is au3record.exe?

It has been removed from the main installer from v3.3.14.1 as it triggers many AV false positives. You can find an old version here:

https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/files/archive/autoit/ autoit-v3.3.14.0.zip

A little explanation of the rather strange link above:

If we give you a direct link to the file (or the zip file which includes it) the site gets flagged as hosting malware (yes really!) - so what you have is a link to the AutoIt archive page and the name of the zip file you need to download from it.

I can't find recorder either. This is the first way I was intending to use AutoIT. Not having a good first experience. No recorder included, no recorder listed on their website, can't fill out a contact us form as it keep s saying it's spam and the website is covered in ads.

pdjhh,

-1. No recorder included: For the very good reason explained in the first post - which is why you do not get a direct link.

-2. no recorder listed on their website: And yet this thread is pinned on the main Help section of the forum for that very reason.

-3. can't fill out a contact us form as it keep s saying it's spam: I get lots of emails from people using the contact form (in fact I have just dealt with one) - could it be you causing the problem?

-4. website is covered in ads: AutoIt is entirely free - how else do you expect us to pay for the server costs?

Anyway, as you seem to have so much trouble getting to the file I extracted it from the linked zip with no difficulty at all and it is now sitting on my hard drive - please PM me if you require a copy.

Edit: This is not a general offer. I expect anyone else to do extract the file themselves as it is trivial to do so, despite the protestations of a certain poster.

Good points by Melba23. "I expect anyone else to do extract the file themselves as it is trivial to do so" if people cannot even do this, they shouldn't be trying to code at all imo. We cannot do everything for the end user. We certainly don't mind helping people to get them pointed in the right direction no one will do all the work for you. Maybe consider hiring a programmer instead?

This is currently not in place and highly doubt it ever will as it won't work like this for the vast majority.

Why not use an ad block plugin or ad block dedicated browser if they irk you so.

I've never seen ads on the forum when logged in and not using ad blocking software, is it me?

Mobius,

Correct, the ads only appear when you are not logged in - at least that is what is Jon intended and certainly what I see.

Thanks Melba23, as I thought.

The odd ad when NLI is little to grizzle about really then, compared to other web services today :)

I downloaded the zip file mentioned above and copied the requisite Au3recorder folder in Extras folder of my installation. It is still not showing in the tools menu. Please help !!

That is because it is removed for the standard SciTE4Autoit3 config as it is not part of the standard AutoIt3 setup anymore. 
Just run it manually or add some setting in your SciTEUSer.properties to have it appear under the tools option.

What happened to the development of au3record, is the source available somewhere ?

 

Because I have some ideas that would be useful (and easy to do

with the source), esp. during testing.

E.g.  an option to generate _MouseClick() instead of MouseClick(),

so its behavior could be changed (e.g. with a counter and tooltip).

You don't need to modify the recorder, just modify the script it creates.

Also, the recorder has very limited usefulness beyond a quick and dirty automation script, anything beyond that you shouldn't be using MouseClick or Send anyways.


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 found "AU3RECORD.EXE" a great help....

Most of the programs I wanted to automate don't have command line options or I wanted them to follow a certain course of scripted action.

I'd use au3record to get the AutoIt commands Control/clicks/sends/etc I needed, then pasted them into the main script to handle that part of the process.

It wasn't perfect but saved me a lot of time looking up syntax and playing with the info tool.

It's sad that it was removed but Autoit isn't as good as it used to be for automation of programs.
I'm hoping "IUIAutomation" and work junkew is doing to redress the deficiencies that AutoIt now has with modern interfaces.

An I hope his tool will get close to what "AU3RECORD.EXE" used to provide. :)  it is looking good so far.

AU3record.exe is not avialalble with new version.So, we are using older version only.

Is there any planning in the future, the inclusion of it or providing it as separate installer?

As support was specifically discontinued and the files removed from the install, the likelihood of adding back in is pretty much zero.

Or we can copy only the below two files for this purpose.

it.PNG

And continue to use the latest versions instead of installing the older versions.

It would be nice if in AutoIT download section separate installer for Recorder is available.

I have attached those files in 7z format.
