Aut2exe.exe ended errors when compiling with large fileinstall

Recommended Posts

I get the "Unable to add resources" error related to AppData\Local\AutoIt v3\Aut2Exe when compiling with a large FileInstall of a 1.5GB file.  Is there a size limit I need to be aware of?  I've also disabled or removed Trend from three different machines and had the same results.  I've had issues like this in the past but have compiled after the Aut2Exe folder was excluded in AV.  That doesn't seem to be the problem this time around.  If I comment out the FileInstall the script compiles successfully.

I regularly compile large AutoIt applications with lots of files totalling around 25 Mb for the compiled exe. One cause may be your anti virus program trying to check you newly compiled application before AutoIt has finished including all the files needed for fileinstall.

I would never make a compiled script with a 1.5gb "attachment"!
What I have done is the past is zip up 1.5Gb file and distribute that together with the installer script to all PC's for a software upgrade.The advantage of that approach was that I could update the script logic without have to distribute the large installer file again.

Why do you want to include this size file in the actual compiled script?

Bowmore... I've already exhausted AV as the cause by having the folder excluded and also testing on a machine with no AV.

Jos... Management wanted one installer (O365) for low bandwidth locations in South America.  I was initially able to compile with large fileinstalls but have had this error crop up more recently.  As it turns out we have already started to go in the direction you did by separating the large fileinstall from the main script.  they just have to place the file in the right spot for the script to find it.

Thanks for the input guys!

      This baby can do almost any language! I found Gleany on this site and set it up on a fresh win10 install. all i would need to do to make it build an exe of the search files app we discovered is the .NET Target Framework download to build 100 % but the exe works and generates! You also need to add the path the the version of csc.exe that you want to run. MSBuild is part of .NET and can read your .csproj file.
      YOU can develop .NET OR C/C++ on this baby!
      Super lightweight (fit for crappy laptops), and you can use any dev compilers you wish, Ming, MS, etc, whatever.
      To use the build, you need to open the csproj file, else, to check your syntax it can compile individual files as well. The warning are because I do not have the .NET 4.6 Targeting Pack installed... LOL, and I could get rid of the Core warning, yes, I did not want to build a .NET Core.dll I wanted a live x64 exe! Told you MSBUILD could handle .CSPROJ, .VBPROJ, and all others Microsoft. Don't let Visual Code or Visual Studio slow you down, although, this works with Visual Code as well but there is only debugging in CORE.DLL projects

      Hi All,
      I'm using UseTraySetIcon("shell32.dll", xx) to set my tray icon to a specific icon while running, is there a way I can specify this icon when I compile my script into an exe so my exe icon is the same?
      Thanks!

      Hello Guys, 
      Is there a way to have Auto it Exe messages/line number when you hover over the tray icon just at it shows when you run Au3.?
      For an example, if I the script has paused due to WinWait or Sleep I could hover over the icon and it shows the line where it's at. Is there a way to achieve the same with the compiled exe? 
      Many thanks for the help!

      Hello there,
       
      When I compile script and use it out of the map where 
      the source code is. So just moving main.exe to
      other map, then source code is.
      It breaks with error:
      Line10010
      Error: Subscript used on non-accessible variable

      So I wonder what kind of file do I need to 
      include with .exe file? Or should I do something else?

      Because people that are using needs only .exe file
      just start it and use it, with out source code.
