help with au3 to exe

Recommended Posts


Hello Board Members,

Autoit is a very cool tool.

I tried my hand at creating a app that runs in the background. In scite, compiled it, ran it, worked fine.

Converted it to an .exe. Scheduled it as a task. This pops up.

Line 0 (file "activeupd.exe")

Local $MainData = DllStructCreate("char[32]")

Local $MainData = ^ERROR

Error: Unknown function name.

Can anyone direct me into what is happening?

Thanks in advance

Scripts & functions Organize Includes Let Scite organize the include files

Yahtzee The game "Yahtzee" (Kniffel, DiceLion)

LoginWrapper Secure scripts by adding a query (authentication)

_RunOnlyOnThis UDF Make sure that a script can only be executed on ... (Windows / HD / ...)

Internet-Café Server/Client Application Open CD, Start Browser, Lock remote client, etc.

Use SciTE F7 or Alt+F7 to compile... this will ensure that au3check runs first and capture these type errors.
