I did a search but maybe I didn't have the right search terms.

Can you change the directory that Autoit uses to compile scripts, by default it's the 'user' temp directory and then it gets moved to the script directory (or wherever you have it set in Scite)

However Defender is always blocking the files during compile, so rather than setting an exclude directory of my 'temp' directory I wondered if it's possible to change the directory Autoit uses as its temporary compile location?

by default it's the 'user' temp directory

Are you sure? The default should be "C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Local\AutoIt v3\Aut2exe" - unless you have a non-standard installation.

@Melba23 I think ChrisL is right in some situations.  I believe when you are using a non-english character in the name of the file.  Maybe Jos can confirm.  All I really know is that I also needed to exclude my user temp folder in order to compile some of my scripts (quite a long time ago, I must say).
