naturelaws,

Simply compile the scripts into stand-alone executables - they will run without AutoIt being installed.

Thank you so much for taking the time reply to me. 

 

I downloaded SciTE4AutoIt3_Portable from this link https://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit-script-editor/downloads/ then, I unzipped it and I got SciTE.exe . 
I double-clicked on SciTE.exe and I got an editor. Inside the editor I just have Msgbox(0, "Hello World", "Hello World). The file is saved. Now, I click on "Go" from the "Tools" menu. At this stage, nothing happens ie the script containing "hello world " is not running.

naturelaws,

I use the full installer version, so I am not too familiar with the portable version. What output do you get in the SciTE console (the lower pane) when you try to run the script? When you post it please use Code tags as explained here.

Unless I misunderstand your sentence, extracting the editor isn't enough to be able to compile a script.

I downloaded SciTE4AutoIt3_Portable

Just use the AutoIt3 Installer first and then the SciTE4AutoIt3 installer after that to get a working setup to be able to compile scripts. The portable version is for those who know what they are doing. ;)

I appreciate all of you for the help. I am going to remember what I learned from you guys for the rest of my life. love. 

 

The issue has been resolved by downloading autoit-v3.zip and extracting it (didn't need to install). I am able to compile and run autoit scripts.
