Misc.au3 : function library not found

Recommended Posts


I have simple script with
#include <Misc.au3>

placed in custom directory. I have copied and placed Misc.au3 from AutoIt installation directory into this directory. I still get the same (not found) error. Where does AutoIt ahk script look for the Misc.au3 file? Where should the Misc.au3 file be placed?

Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

Is the custom directory you placed the Misc.au3 include correctly configured in ScITE config?

As far as I know, just putting the include files in the same directory as the script should work.

Quick test: I created c:\tmp\testinclude.au3:

MsgBox(0, 0, "hi")

... and c:\tmp\test.au3:

#include <testinclude.au3>
MsgBox(0, 0, "bye")

... and that works like a charm, started from scite. Exe compilation is also fine. c:\tmp is not configured as a custom include dir, in fact I just created the directory.

Maybe you could try something that too and if it works, work from there to see what is different in your script? Wild guesses: file rights? network paths?

And what's the actual error? If the #include file can't be found, scite should give "error: can't open include file <....>" and not "not found"... Just making sure we're talking about the same thing.

Maybe you could post a reproducer script?
