somewhere safe? I suppose the best advise would be, a subdir called beta? or replace all the files in the same locations as the current ver if you just want to 'upgrade' to the beta?

oh. maybe if i asked nicely, instead of slapping it.

seriously, since there is no installer.... i mean, right cllicking will compile with the stable...

how do i "tell" it to?

do i have to replace the stable with beta files?

and i didnt even compile it..

ok, i WOULD perhaps RTFM but is there a beta manual?

i see the help file.. but it says nothing about how to run it.

cmon now guys....

how do i make the beta work... do a search for all files in the beta....

and when they show up in autoit.. then replace them?

You either:

A) Run the beta AutoIt3.exe directly and then choose your "beta" script to run when prompted.

B) Overwrite the "stable" installation's files with the beta.

C) Add/Modify the registry entries to point to the beta files.

Copy the directory C:\Program Files\AutoIt3 to C:\Program Files\AutoIt3Beta. Then download the files from the unstable directory and overwrite the files in AutoItBeta (some files will be in the main directory, some will be in the Aut2Exe directory adn some will be in the Include directory).

Double click on AutoItBeta\AutoIt3.exe to run a script and double click on AutoitBeta\Aut2Exe\Aut2Exe.exe to compile script.

Sometimes I upload an unstable installer, but you have to be careful as it removes the stable version and unless you are comfortable using the unstable as your primary version could be a problem.

The install package has just been added, minutes ago. Download it, install and it should take care of all these issues

close all files before running the installer ... in this case you probably had the Autoit3 helpfile open..... :ph34r: (Thats what Autoit.chm does... provide help!!) Edited by JdeB
