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.

      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

      If you have every taken the time to set up a nice dark theme for your scite editor, you probably noticed shortly after a small yet really annoying flaw. For what ever reason, scite is not set up to let you change the caret fore color and caret line color per language. This really sucks if say you want to edit a properties file or any of the many other languages that Scite currently is setup to support. Pretty much all the other languages are set as light theme so unless you change the theme for those file types, you end up with something like below where the line color and caret are still using the dark theme colors. Line 3 in the pic:
       

       
      To get around this I came up with the following that seems to work pretty well.  
       
      Add the following properties to SciteUser.properties file (Options -> Open User Options File). Update colors to your own needs. You can addionally add any other propertys that dont have a lexer language option in the same fashion.
      # The default values (light themes) will be used for any lexer other than au3 caret.default.fore=#000000 caret.default.line.back=#FFFED8 selection.default.fore=#006000 selection.default.back=#F0A0A8 caret.au3.fore=#FFFFFF caret.au3.line.back=#111111 selection.au3.fore=#C2FFAE selection.au3.back=#f9f9f9  
      Add the following function to PersonalTools.Lua file. As jos pointed out, the OnStartup covers the filetab switches as well as the startup so only need the one function:
      function PersonalTools:OnStartup() -- the "and" + "or" keywords are ternary operators here local sLex = self:IsLexer(SCLEX_AU3) and 'au3' or 'default' props['caret.line.back'] = props['caret.' .. sLex .. '.line.back'] props['caret.fore'] = props['caret.' .. sLex .. '.fore'] props['selection.fore'] = props['selection.' .. sLex .. '.fore'] props['selection.back'] = props['selection.' .. sLex .. '.back'] end
      Last restart SciTE and that should be it. Let me know if you have any issues. Thanks

      Is there a way to remove the numbers from the tabs in Scite?
      When you have multiple autoit programs open, the tabs are numbered, so you'll get something like 1 ProgramA.au3    2 Program2.au3   3 Program3.au3
      I am working on programs with numbers as the first character, so I get  1 3-DoThis.au3     2 4-DoAnother.au3   3 5-DoTheRest.au3  (not the real program names, obviously :))
      It would be nice if I could get rid of the tab number, and just have the program name on each tab.

      HI people,
                        I got a questions, I maintain code in autoIT and every time I compile a new version or modification, Scite generate 2 folders. One folder is finish by released and the other is tentative. I try to make some google search, but never find answer would satisfied myself. The dev who was maintain it before were using AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI, and I don't know if it's related. I look both folder, but they seem pretty identical, but I would like to know what it's the difference between those to folder. Anyone have a clue?

      ConsoleWrite('>Message here.' & @CRLF) outputs colored text (per + > - ! characters).
      ConsoleWrite('warning' & @TAB & '38' & @TAB & 'more text ...' & @CRLF) enables jump to line 38 on doubleclick.

      Using "jump to line" format, only red and pink text coloring seems possible (simply prefixing color directives to output-text disables jump to line functionality). Is it possible to combine the two (define custom color while keeping "jump to line" functionality)?
