ImageSearch is giving me an error message when I try to compile

I am trying to integrate imagesearch into a script I am making. When I try to compile the script I get the following inside imagesearch.au3 under all 4 of the imagesearch.au3 defined functions:

"Error: Missing separator character before keyword"

I tried the beta version of Autoit and it is doing the same thing. I am using the x32 version of the imagesearch.au3 found here - https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiUmsrEsLzPAhWs7YMKHS9MClQQFggfMAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.autoitscript.com%2Fforum%2Ftopic%2F148005-imagesearch-usage-explanation%2F&usg=AFQjCNFwpFnZMxVK9H4cDASRnjiB-65gOw&bvm=bv.134495766,d.amc

I have put the imagesearchDLL.dll in both the includes directory and the system32 directory. I am using x64 Windows 8.1 Pro. I cant see anything wrong. Please help.

Hello. Check in function's  byref parameter. make sure you set a space after every comma.

 

Func _TestError(ByRef $a,ByRef $b)

EndFunc


Func _TestNoError(ByRef $a, ByRef $b)

EndFunc

      Hello. I've been working with Imagesearch library lately and it did a good work, although I moved to a new PC and didn't copy the old files with me so I downloaded the Imagesearch from the following post
       hoping that it will work. It doesn't though. First time I when I use (run as subscript to my code) the Imagesearch.au3, Scite finds errors (missing spaces). Ctrl+T (scite tidy) fixes these missing spaces but the script returns the following error on every run after:
      _ImageSearch('search.bmp', 0, $x, $y, 0) outputs
       
      "C:\Users\Knuckles\Desktop\AutoIt\include\ImageSearch.au3" (44) : ==> Subscript used on non-accessible variable.: If $result[0] = "0" Then Return 0 If $result^ ERROR no matter if I put the searched bmp in the script folder or folder img in the script directory. Also, it doesn't matter if the searched image on screen or not, it returns the same.

      Can you provide me any help please? I remember having these problems 2 years ago when I first met the imagesearch library also (I fixed it somehow though in that time). Seems nothing changed.

      Using this version posted in the following post gives the same error:
      Also I run windows 10 64bit and I have no shell options for script editing, running as x86 or whatever as I used to have on windows xp/7. I went through some steps like deleting a key in registry and I even reinstalled autoit and scite but that only resulted to au3 as unrecognized file format and not in getting back the menus and the icon on au3 files. Any thoughts on this?

      Edit: Installing 64-bit AutoIt and using 64bit ImageSearch is no change.
      code.au3

       but why is this one working and the original aren't? :(

      Hello.
      I had made a bot that clicks and doing stuff. It is working fine, but when i move it to another PC ImageSearch stop working. I captured same image of a button again and i observed that they are a little bit different. How to deal with this? I wonder if i will make black and white detection might work, or not ... i don't know. The point is i am not willing to re-do photos on each and every PC i move the scripts.
       
      ClickOnImageWithToleranceFast("images/fb_about.bmp",16) Func ClickOnImageWithToleranceFast($image_path,$tolerance) If SearchForImageOnScreenWithTolerance($image_path,$tolerance) Then If $x <> 0 And $y <> 0 Then MouseMove($x+5, $y+5,0) Sleep(500) MouseClick("left") Sleep(500) EndIf EndIf EndFunc

      Hi,
      I saw a couple topics about both mousedrag and imagesearch in background or minimized window, but none of them has the solution, and they were old topics.
      So I wanted to ask whether there is a way to mouse drag without the cursor to move, (I want to use mouse when mousedrag is working on a window). I don't know whether I can mix ControlMove with some other stuff or any other way?
      And also for the image search, is there any way to search for image (or pixel) in a background or minimized window? I thought maybe there is a au3 or dll or ... file for doing this.
      Another question I have: Any way to pinch zoom (two fingers) a window like "windows photo viewer" to zoom in or out? I saw something almost the same here, but not what I want.
      I appreciate it.

      Does anyone have experience with transparency on _ImageSearch?  The code attached finds the image "base.bmp" but at position 0,0 not near the center of the screen as it appears. My goal is to find the Big Blue "G" regardless of the background.  I have not yet found the base image, so I have not tested changing the background. Do you have to use image formats that support transparency?  If so, how would you capture the image from within autoit code and set the transparency color?
