Can't Find Help File; Multiple copies running.

4 posts in this topic

I am a new user of AutoIt3. I notice in my task manager that sometimes there are 5 or 6 copies of the program running. What am I doing wrong? I have to close them out from Task Manager.

Also, I was reading a tutorial by someone called Comi. It was useful, but (s)he references a help file for AutoIt3, which I cannot locate. Where is it, and how do I access it?

I have looked briefly at AutoIt3_123, a tutorial that seems to require a beta version. Is there any problem in using the beta version, and do I have to uninstall AutoIt3 first?

Thanks

Make a AutoIt Script. And put this inside:

ShellExecuteWait(@ProgramFilesDir & "\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.chm")

(That may not be where yours is, but that is where mine is!)

Thanks. I made a file help.au3 with the following line in it.

ShellExecuteWait(@ProgramFilesDir & "\AutoIt\install\AutoIt.chm")

and it brings up the help file, which I can now study. When I close these files, AutoIt.exe should no longer be seen in Task Manager, right? Can you explain why several instances seemed to be hanging open earlier?

I believe that you downloaded the Zip file, or self-extracting .exe as opposed to the installer, because normally, the installer does not create an "install" folder in program files.

Best bet is downloading this Installer.
