For distribution on my work - always compiled!!

For myself - just double click the script.

For a good editor click here.

I think most of the AutoIt scripters will agree...... :idiot:

Myself, double click on the script, after I have tested it a zillion times I will compile it and let it loose on the school network.......

The kids think its magic when they see text appear automatically without any key presses in front of them....

Officially, AutoIt is "unnapproved software" at my place of buisness, so I have to use a .zip install and extract without making registry entries. Big Brother regularly scans the registry for uninstall information for "unauthorized software." So, that makes it a bit of a pain to test scripts (manually run the autoit.exe and load the script).

Myself, double click on the script, after I have tested it a zillion times I will compile it and let it loose on the school network.......

I do the same. Long ammounts of testing, tweaking, improving, removing, and asking tons of questions here before releasing to a few people for additional testing as a compiled (but unencrypted) script.

Nope, Double click opens the script in the SciTE editor.... and then:

F5 runs it ....

F7 Compiles it ....

Ctrl+F7 Au3Check/Compiles and update the program resources.

Ctrl+9 Tidy's it .....

Ctrl+F5 AU3Checks it ...

Etc.. :idiot:

Check the SciTE4AutoIt3 ... Link below :D

Would this work for you:

Save AutoIt3.exe and your scripts on the Desktop. Drag and drop any scripts onto AutoIt3

Or perhaps you could use this trick to modify a generic registry key to add a "Run AutoIt Script" option to the right-click menu....

Must be a bit of a bummer that - I don't have much of a problem there as I am the only person who runs the school network - [ well I have a manager who just lets me get on with it ]

It must be frustrating to be in a work place in which you cannot do certain aspects.

I recently got made redundant from Safeway Head Office In Hayes - Moronsons - sorry, Morrisons took us over. I worked in the IT dept and was responsible for the AV solution accross the head office using Trend Officescan. I wrote a few scripts using ver 2 to aid this. The only issue I had was other people and depts saying the code I had done and the work was all their doing. Tossers. As the code was compiled and only myself knew what was in it and what it did, then walking away was not difficult.

I'm glad in the end I did go when I did because my new job pisses all over my old one.

I can't remember running a script by double-clicking an AU3 file...

  • All my serious scripts are always compiled to EXE;
  • And I run experiments or development from TextPad: I have a tool assigned to F5 which allows me to run any script(s) I have open, "straight" from the editor.
:idiot:

Double click .Au3 File

OR

Right-click .Au3 File -> Edit with Metapad

In Metapad: Ctrl+D = Launch Default Viewer (AutoIt3.exe)

I only compile my scripts when they're complete, or when I need to test their "portability compatibility".

Testing and debugging are run from the Scite editor. Completed scripts are usually not compiled but run from another script that is a GUI of labels created dynamically from a text file. One click to open the GUI from the office toolbar and one clict to launch the script.

I solved the problem by manually installing the .zip of the SciTE for AutoIt and then editing the config files to point to the proper directories. Now F5 works for me too!
