You Don't Have Permission To Save In This Location

Recommended Posts

Hoth2001

I installed AutoIt to my computer 3 days ago...and have invested the last 3 days learning how to use it.

As learned in the tutorials, whenever opening I new file in Scite editor I'd immediatley save the file

I left the Scite Editor open for the past 3 consecutive days on my laptop

 

No problem

 

Today I closed Autoit for the first time, restarted my computer, and opened up the Scite Editor

Now whenever I try to save a file I am prevented from doing so because I apparently don't have permission!?  

And whenever I try to run any of the programs I've created over the past 3 days now I keep getting annoying popup notifications before I run them

 

Problem

 

To go around the issue, I copied a program originally saved in the AUtoIt folder to another folder (since I was barred from saving it in it's original AutoIt location)

NOw when I run the code the mouse coordiantes are all off

and I still get that pesky notification whenever I try to run a program

 

Big Problem!!!

Anyone have any clue why I'm going through this BS?

 

1. I checked my User settings and YES I am the administrator on this cpu

2. I tried to de-select the "read only" attribute for the AutoIt folder (everytime after doing this successfully the folder immediately and automatically reverts back to "read only")

 

Any help would be MOST appreciated. I've attached screen shots of the annoying bus I keep getting

This "bs" is standard Windows User Account Control; it has nothing to do with AutoIt. You are going to get that pop up whenever you try to save to the install directory for AutoIt (same as any other installed application). Best practice would be to create a folder somewhere on your hard drive (My Docs, Desktop, etc.) and use this as a repository for all of your scripts. That way, when you upgrade or reinstall AutoIt, you won't lose anything.

Unless I am misunderstanding you, I would be very surprised if this was working for you before. Your screenshot shows you are trying to save to the SciTE folder in the AutoIt install directory. This is protected by default and this is expected Windows behavior. Try saving to any other application's installation directory under C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86) and you should encounter the exact same popup.

This can only have worked before when you shelled SciTE with Administrator rights, else you will not be able to save the file in the program files(x86) directory.

      Hi I am not sure how to call it properly, but for those of you who use SciTE, when you typing built in function and about to pass parameters to it you can see popup with all the ones which can be passed.
      Question: how to create something like that for my own functions?
       
      Thanks

      Does SciTE have string or number ids for the recent file menu items?
      I was hoping to add shortcuts (using the user.shortcuts properties) to the most recent item, but the documentation doesn't list any id's for those items (unless I overlooked?).
      Also, did anyone else notice that the index listing for the SciTE doc doesn't work properly?
      It appears it's linking to this: mk:@MSITStore:C:\Program%20Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\Scite4AutoIt3.chm::/SciTEDocumentation.html
      When it should be this? mk:@MSITStore:C:\Program%20Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\Scite4AutoIt3.chm::/Scitedoc/SciTEDoc.html

      I was looking for a toolbar modification for SciTE and I was checking various versions of SciTE that were available on the internet. They all had some problems for how I wanted to use the editor, so I looked here to see if there were any toolbar modifications for Scite. I found one very old script by YogiBear (Volly) from 2006 that looked promising, though there were issues with it. I decided to see what I could do to modify this script, and make some improvements to it if possible. This script is the result of that work.

      It's not perfect and definitely could use some tweaking, but I thought that it had matured enough, and was mostly stable enough to release the updated version.

      Changelog:
      Version 2.0.1
      Minor update to remove all the old Obfuscator directives and replaced them with #Au3Stripper directives instead. I also corrected a minor bug that only showed up for me on one computer I tried this on, and caused the tool bar to crash for others as well.
      SciTE toolbar version 2.0
      Changed the settings values to use constants instead of 'magic numbers' The icons on the toolbar weren't lining up with the separator characters or with the toolbar GUI because they weren't set with the resize setting for the icons, only for the separators. Changed to using arrays for everything, it makes it a lot easier to loop through the controls Added a line to use an alternate path to the SciTE program, so you can start it using, for example, the portable version instead of installed version for those that don't install AutoIt and/or SciTE4AutoIt3. It will accept a commmand line parameter that points to the SciTE executable. Removed a lot of Global variables by moving the GUI creation and monitoring to the Main function and passing variables from it. I embedded the icon files into the script so that there isn't a separate download of the icon files used here. Saves download time and makes the package smaller. Modification of tools is easier because the icon names, tooltip text, and SciTE command codes are saved in the INI file upon first start up. These can be modified after the script has been run once, even after it's been compiled, by changing the ini file information, you can modify this script to automate it, or you can change it manually in any text editor. The icon files are now using, in just my opinion, better looking icons, after all it's been 7 years and icon files have matured. I have included a file with all of the constants that SciTE uses for its menu commands which comes from the SciTE source file "scite.h", so you can use this file to help you modify the commands that the toolbar works with, by figuring out what each of these values represent in SciTE. The core of the script is pretty much the same, I've just fixed a couple of issues that it had, tweaked a few things, added some new functionality and "prettied" it up a bit.

      If anyone has any suggestions as to improvements, bugs/bugfixes, etc. please let me know.

      Greetings to the AutoIt community.
      I hope that nobody considers my question insulting but I searched 'SciTEConfig.exe' and I did not find it anywhere;
      although it is mentioned, it seems like a myth, I can not see if it exists.
      On the other hand, I have downloaded the compressed archive (from ... autoit-script-editor/downloads) 'SciTEConfig_Source.zip'
      Does not contain any .exe either but does have a 'SciteConfig.au3' which, I suppose, has replaced the .exe because on the internet I only find it as malware.
      My problem is: My applications to unzip .zip archives, they can see what files SciTEConfig_Source.zip have but they can not unzip it: 'Unknown method' says WinRar.
          I have downloaded it again, in case it had been damaged but the result is always the same.

      My question is: Is the archive 'SciTEConfig_Source.zip' damaged or does it have any other method of compression?
      I need it to learn how to configure SciTE (lite).
      Thankful to the developers of AutoIt and to the community.
      Regards

      I'm trying to use Maps for the first time (Never knew they were available until I read through the release notes) but Scite keeps throwing an error on run about Variable subscript badly formatted.
      I tried to run the script directly from AutoIT and it also threw an error.
      I've got the latest 3.3.14.5 and just re-installed Scite.  
      Below is a quick sample that I put together that throws the error in Scite as well as if I run it with the AutoIT Run a script.
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> Local $mBug[] ;==> Variable subscript badly formatted $mBug.Width = 1100 $mBug.Height = 700 $mBug.GUI = GUICreate("Defect Details", $mBug.Width, $mBug.Height) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $mBug.GUI) ;~ $iW = 1100 ;~ $iH = 700 ;~ $hGUI = GUICreate("Defect Details", $iW, $iH) ;~ GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd  
      I tried searching the forum for Maps and it's only talking about Beta which I don't have installed.
       
      so, what am I doing wrong?
       
      Thanks,
      Mike
