How to run beta version

9 posts in this topic

The only way I have been able to run the beta version of AutoIt is to edit the script in SciTE and then use "Beta Run" on the "Tools" menu of SciTE. When I try to associate the AU3 extention with the beta version of AutoIt3.exe in my "Program Files" folder it does not work. Is there any way to get the beta version to run when I mouse click on an AU3 script file? I installed the beta version without uninstalling AutoIt v3.1.1. Should I have uninstalled AutoIt v3.1.1 before installing the beta version?

maybe an easy way would be to copy the "autoit3.exe" from the beta folder to the Autoit3 folder

???

Start > Programs > AutoIt v3 > Beta > Toggle AU3 Beta

This is the correct way to switch between the beta and release versions of AutoIt when double-clicking a script.

Is the release version and the beta version compiled into one .exe ?


Agreement is not necessary - thinking for one's self is!

Nope. The beta is a separate download to be installed alongside your v3.1.1 installation.

Another way to toggle the two versions that I prefer:

1) Install the standard version found here.

2) Install the latest beta version found here.

3) Install SciTE, our favourite script editor found here.

4) Install SciTE's updated definitions for AutoIT's latest beta found here.

After these steps you have an excellent editor to write your scripts and a very easy way to test them in either the standard version or the beta one automatically. While scripting press F5 to run your script with the standard version or Alt+F5 to run it with the beta.

SciTE has also a lot of other great stuff that you will probably adore. Its page is http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/.
