You Don't Have Permission To Save In This Location

5 posts in this topic

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.

But how come I didn't get any of these notifications or prroblems for the past 3 days if this was "standard"????

that's what I don't understand

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.

      I use a monospace font for editing AutoIt scripts in SciTE (currently, CourierNew 9pt). Regardless of what font size I set in the configuration, when I start SciTE to resume editing the script text is one size smaller than I specified. When I type Ctrl+<numpad-slash> the text changes to the desired size. The same is true of the output pane, and I have to reset the size for both areas every time I start SciTE.
      IIRC, I've made few other changes to the configuration (e.g., changed the search highlight color and disabled Tidy), so this behavior seems odd. About SciTE says it's version 3.6.0 (Aug. 4, 2015).
      Any idea how to fix this?

      As they're opinion-based to some degree; how are AutoIt's best practices decided and do suggestions get considered?
      Some suggestions :
      For...To...Step...Next -loop variable-naming like $iN ($i1, $i2, etc.) : conforms to recommended naming convention, identifies level (albeit inverted to ExitLoop and ContinueLoop's convention) and enables SciTE selection-highlighting (requires minimum of 3 characters). Minimize logic in global scope, separate data & settings from logic, use of vertical space, project organization (folder structure, resource- and include file management). Example (loop variable-naming, minimizing logic in global scope and separation of settings from logic) :
      #include <Array.au3> Global Enum $RANDOM_RETURNFLOAT, _ $RANDOM_RETURNINTEGER Global Enum $EXITCODE_NONE Global Const $g_sChar0 = '-' Global Const $g_sChar1 = '+' Global Const $g_iAmountX = 10 Global Const $g_iAmountY = $g_iAmountX Main() Func Main() Local $aArray[$g_iAmountY][$g_iAmountX] For $i1 = 0 To $g_iAmountY - 1 For $i2 = 0 To $g_iAmountX - 1 $aArray[$i1][$i2] = Random(0, 1, $RANDOM_RETURNINTEGER) ? $g_sChar1 : $g_sChar0 Next Next _ArrayDisplay($aArray) Exit $EXITCODE_NONE EndFunc Example (project organization) :
      + project_folder + bak [backup files] + bin [distributed binaries and dependencies] + inc [non-standard include files] + res [resource files (icons, file+install files, etc.)] + usr [configuration files, databases, etc.] - script.au3 - script.exe Example (use of vertical space) :
      Func _DigitalRoot($iNum) Local $sNum = '' Local $aNum While $iNum > 9 $sNum = String($iNum) $aNum = StringSplit($sNum, '') $iNum = 0 For $i1 = 1 To $aNum[0] $iNum += Int($aNum[$i1]) Next WEnd Return $iNum EndFunc
