Weird: Install On Mom's Machine Doesn't Work

3 posts in this topic

Using NetMeeting to take over my Mom's computer (doing some programming work for her), I installed AutoAct hoping to do some great automation :)

But when I run a script that runs without problems on my machine, it gives an error:

Line 1:

dim $myTimer

Error: Unknown Command

It's just a dim! :)

Tried making a new file with just dim $t and got the same result.

We're both running Win XP. I didn't get to reboot her system since install but that shouldn't matter. Of note, initially the script I sent over to test out got named *.au3 rather than *.aut, but I renamed it after forcing it to run with the wrong extension...Don't know what else to say! :)

Thanks for any help,

A

What version of AutoIt?

AutoIt v2 uses the *.aut file extension; AutoIt v3 uses the *.au3 extension.

Dim $myTimer is valid v3 syntax, but invalid v2 syntax.

Download the newest official version of AutoIt v3. (Or you can dowload the cutting-ege unstable AutoIt version that has support for creating GUIs.)
