Need advice on minimum upgrade of stripper.

I've just downloaded SciTE Portable ZIP to get a look at what might have changed in the last two years.  What I've found is "a lot".  Now, I'm overwhelmed by the possibility of EXE-breaking changes to my library of 100+ compiled scripts.

Here's my situation in a nutshell:

I don't use Tidy.
I don't use Koda.
I don't use Themes.
I don't use lua (that I know of).
I don't use SciTE Jump.
I don't use CodeWizard (that I know of)

I DO use AutoItStripper ... and AutoItWrapper.
I'm running the latest Au3: v3.3.14.2 ... but the older v3.5.4 of SciTE.

What would be a minimum file set to move to the latest SciTE "core" and the latest AutoItStripper?

Further, how can I then confirm that I'm not at risk (using old DAT files, for example) with new SciTE modules?

I've used AutoIt for years ... but I've never been comfortable with moving to newer versions.  More than once, I've ended up "in the ditch" and taken days to get back on track.

Thanks in advance for any advice on this.

A new version of AutoIt or SciTE or the wrapper has no effect on your compiled scripts. They're already compiled so they don't get touched by any of these other things being updated.

Or maybe I'm misunderstanding what you're asking.


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 hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Au3stripper is but autoit3wrapper is run by autoit3.exe these days as it triggered false positives in the past.

Just leave the directories for AutoIt3Wrapper; Au3stripper; Properties and LUA and you should be good. 
Properties contain the language definitions so you really only need the files of the languages used and Other,properties.
LUA contain a lot of added logic for SciTE so you can strip it but will loose all the added functionality.

I think so.  I'm not concerned about EXEs that are already built.  I consider them "cast in stone" with whatever Au3 components were present at the time of a build.

What I am concerned about are the inter-dependencies among the Au3/SciTE/etc software.  Particularly (for my current needs), can Au3stripper be upgraded to a later version without upgrading other components? (... and without being tripped up by an older properties file, for example).

Jos has indicated that Au3stripper can be ... which I will confirm, shortly.  But I'm thinking others might not be so "interchangeable".

Thanks for the responses.

AutoIt3Wrapper is indeed build based on the latest release of AutoIt3, but I am not keeping track of backwards compatibility for everything. Just give it a go by renaming the old version and copying the current version and see what happens.

I was able to run the newer Au3Stripper in my existing development environment by replacing the one (EXE) file.

Result is here.
