Where is AUTOIT3.EXE

9 posts in this topic

Because I suddenly was having errors trying to "Compile" or using "GO" in the Scite menu, I completely removed AutoIt3 from my PC

and re-installed it. The very first thing I have done was to search for "AutoIt3.EXE" and it is nowhere to be found. Is this why I am having so many

problems trying to compile or run (GO) from the Scite menu ?  Where is it now located and is this the reason I am having these problems?

I think so but I am no expert. How can I correct this.

Thanks much

jos,

It's not there. I have not done anything in AutoIt at all. All I did was search for the AutoIt3.EXE file right after I re-installed it. Very strange.

Can I get AutoIt3.exe somewhere and then get into the autoit3 folder so I can try it and see if this corrects my problem?

I use Webroot SecureAnywhere. Could this somehow see it and somehow delete it?

Thanks - cyberalau3

Local $AutoItPath = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AutoIt v3\AutoIt", "InstallDir")
If FileExists($AutoItPath & '\AutoIt3.exe') Then
    FileWrite(@TempDir & '\~test.au3', 'MsgBox(0,@AutoItVersion,"' & 'Installed in: ' & $AutoItPath & '")')
    Run('"' & $AutoItPath & '\AutoIt3.exe" ' & '"' & @TempDir & '\~test.au3"')
Else
    MsgBox(48, "", "Can't find AutoIt installed path!")
EndIf

Installer and zip file are both available in the download directory.

I use Webroot SecureAnywhere. Could this somehow see it and somehow delete it?

Check your AV software for any activities it has performed.

And there is where your problem lies. Webroot recently started detecting and quarantining Autoit. Efforts to get them to reverse this decision were futile.

You need to add an Allow rule so that Webroot stops quarantining the app.

FYI, I finally got Webroot to whitelist the current version of Autoit so this issue should be resolved.

Sorry this took me so long, but I finally had time to follow up. I also have Webroot and found I had to "Allow" the autoit3.exe file also.

Thanks for your help
