July 8, 2018: New SciTE4AutoIt3 available with the updated SciTE v4.1.0 release

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have recently updated my AutoIt3(3.3.14.5) and SciTE4AutoIt3(18.708.1148.0) installs from the main AutoIt downloads page.

Windows XP SvsPck3 x86(32bit).

After numerous re-downloads and re-installs of both, SciTE4AutoIt3 (SciTE.exe) fails with "Not a valid Win32 Application". I have also tried the portable version with the same results. Also both installs AutoIt3(3.3.14.5) and SciTE4AutoIt3(18.708.1148.0) appear to be missing the Tidy.ini with errors in the SciTE4AutoIt3 install log. I have tried replacing the SciTE4AutoIt3 (SciTE.exe) with different SciTE4AutoIt3 (SciTE.exe) versions to try and get up and running again and am currently using the latest version of wscite412 executable with many issues, but at least I can keep coding.

Can you/anyone direct me to a SciTE4AutoIt3 version that will work under Windows XP that will be somewhat compatible with AutoIt3(3.3.14.5)? Or a Scite executable I can drop in to keep going.

 

P.S I recreated the Tidy.ini from the help file and TidyV2_Example.ini

Thank you for any help you can offer.

Thanks for that. I have been using that version for the last few hours and it has fixed some issues. I still cant get Tidy to function.

I have tried different settings and locations of the Tidy.ini

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\AutoIt v3\SciTE\Tidy

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\Tidy

Any Ideas on getting it working? Can I create a shortcut to Tidy.exe in my project folder and drop my *.au3 directly onto the Tidy.exe?

Ignore the above question. It looks like Tidy.exe has the same issues as the latest Scite4AutoIt "Not a valid Win32 Application".

It appears that the latest version of Scite4AutoIt is broken under Windows XP.

Where should I place a bug report, And where can I find a working version later than V15.729.1555.0?

There is no bug here, merely the fact that I am not testing nor supporting WinXP anymore with the SciTE4AutoIt3 installer and its utilities.
Just keep on using the old versions when you insist on using WinXP on a development machine. :) 

Here is an archive of older releases of the installer: https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/download/archive/

Thanks Jos, It may be worthwhile Getting the guys to change the downloads page to reflect that XP is no longer supported and maybe a "System Requirements" for the SciTE4AutoIt3 Downloads. Will save others the headaches I'm going through at the moment.

For others:

Windows XP SvcPkc3 32bit(x86)

autoit-v3-setup V3.3.14.5 (Works on XP)

Scite4AutoIt3 17.224.935.0 (Wors on XP)

@Spinwiz, 

I guess it is actually pretty simple to still support WinXP as it is just Tidy and Au3Stripper having this issue because PellesC 9 isn't compatible with WinXP.
I can easily keep on compiling them with PellesC 6 as I still have that as well.

Will fix this in the next version coming out soon so you can test it them when you wish. :)  (Or try the current Beta recompiled versions)

Thanks Jos, I know XP is dead for most peoples, but I still write for NT6 + Boot disks + ReactOS etc.

Its ok if you don't support XP, The earlier version is working fine so I don't expect you do extra work just for a few of us :). It Just threw me off when the download pages state support for XP, so I went around in circles looking for why and what I was doing wrong lol. I had considered that you may have been compiling with VS2017 which no longer supports XP. Just the same thank for the help.

I'm making an effort to create some contributions to the AutoIt community so I should be around frequently.

P.S. How do you find Pelles compared to GCC Mingw?

It actually does as long as you use toolset:  "Visual Studio 2017 - Windows XP (v141_xp)" as far as I know. :)

Only have used PellesC so can't compare with GCCMingw.
I am using Visual Studio mostly for C++ development, but still have Tidy and AU3Stripper coded in BCX (long story) , which uses PellesC as the compiler.

      I need to mute an ongoing call on Microsoft teams without activating the window. Teams allows us to mute using shortcut key Ctrl+Shift+m but only when the window is active.
      # Used set option as ongoing call can be with any person which leads to change in Title Name.
      AutoItSetOption ( "WinTitleMatchMode", 2 ) 
      # I am not clear with the control ID which will be good to use here and also the key combination of ^M       
      ControlSend ( "Microsoft Teams", "", "[CLASS:Intermediate D3D Window; INSTANCE:1]", "{ctrl down}")
       
      Can anyone help...!!!

      Hi there, 
      I'm new in AutoIt forms and using AutoIt to automate desktop application (able to automate the application normally but facing issue when I've to re-run the application twice within the same script...so need help in this please)
      here is the steps then followed by the issue in a brief : 
      1- run application . 
      2- do some actions (click menus,activate windows,set texts..)
      3- close the application. 
      4- run the application again & access the same controls.
      5- open the same windows again (like step 2)
      6- perform some validations (by getting texts from some text boxes)
      7- close the application again (and repeat 1-7 for 15 times in average )
      The issue 
      * all controls are accessible in the first run and actions done successfully on controls (for steps 1-3) BUT from the second run of the application from step-4 it's able to set focus only the main application window.
      Note: only unique properties used to while mapping the controls. 
      Error that appear in the console :
      UIAWrappers.au3" (1673) : ==> Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.: $x = Int($t[1] + ($t[3] / 2)) $x = Int($t[1] + (^ ERROR  
      Simple spy code  of one of the controls that has this strange issue(menubar&view menu Item): 
      ;~ *** Standard code maintainable *** #include "UIAWrappers.au3" AutoItSetOption("MustDeclareVars", 1) _UIA_setVar("oP1","Title:=XXX;controltype:=UIA_WindowControlTypeId;class:=WindowsForms10.Window.8.app") ;main app form xxx _UIA_setVar("oP2","Title:=menuStrip1;controltype:=UIA_MenuBarControlTypeId;class:=WindowsForms10.Window.8.app") ;menuStrip1 ;~ $oUIElement=_UIA_getObjectByFindAll("View.mainwindow", "title:=View;ControlType:=UIA_MenuItemControlTypeId", $treescope_subtree) _UIA_setVar("oUIElement","Title:=View;controltype:=UIA_MenuItemControlTypeId;class:=") ;ControlType:=UIA_MenuItemControlTypeId;classname:=") ;~ Actions split away from logical/technical definition above can come from configfiles ;~_UIA_Action("oP1","highlight") _UIA_Action("oP1","setfocus") ;~_UIA_Action("oP2","highlight") _UIA_Action("oP2","setfocus") _UIA_action("oUIElement","highlight") ;~_UIA_action("oUIElement","click")

      Hello All!
      i suggest to set default encoding in Scite4 for Autoit 3 to UTF 8 with Bom encoding, format recommended also in Autoit Help.
      In last editor version, when i open new script, for example Czech characters (č, ř, ž) aren't correct.
      So when i change Encoding to UTF 8 with Bom from Default Code page property state, everithing seems to be OK.
      Thank you and sorry for potentialy duplicated content.

      I have an eof problem in SciTE. I keep gitting this knitsu at the end of the open sesion.
      Please see below. The file should end at line 1220 but has invisable lines. What am I doing wrong?
    • By AutoitMike
      Scite 3.4.4
      Win 10
      I click "Help" or press F1, there is no response
      If I use the file explorer and double click Autoit.chm or Autoit3.chm help opens.
      There is no dialog to check or uncheck "Always ask before opening this file" when clicking on these files.
       
      If you are curious as to why I dont have the latest version, I am creating a back up laptop that has a VERY extensive automation application that I have written over the past 15 years.
       
      An extremely potent, powerful, needed function has been deleted in the upgrade of Autoit in recent years that I can not do without. If my main laptop dies, which it almost did, I am in a very bad position. So I bought the exact same laptop and I am "cofiguring" it to work exactly the same as my main laptop. However, this one has been "Upgraded" to Win 10 which I hope is not the problem. 
      Thanks for any help
