using Autoit with limited user account

Recommended Posts

leos

Some time ago I was using Autoit without problems on a machine with limited user account (win XP).

Now, after some security updates, when I select Tools/Go, Tools/Compile or Tools/Syntax Check Prod from Scite menu, windows opens for me the Run As box and I must enter the administrator password in order to finalize said operations.

What can I do to SyntaxCheck, Compile or run scripts from Scite without running those tasks as administrator?

I must say that my scripts do not require administrator rights. All I want is to process some files that i have the rights to use.

Yeah, this also happened to me. There is a edited version of AutoItWrapper that Jos posted somewhere that doesn't use admin privledges but still works with scripts fine.

Are you running the latest SciTE4AutoIt3 version ?

The may version had a #RequireAdmin directive in AutoIt3Wrapper which I guess could cause this.

Yes I use latest SciTE4AutoIt3.

I have compiled AutoIt3Wrapper without #RequireAdmin and now all seems to go smooth :mellow:

Thank you for the suggestion.

The latest version of the installer doesn't have #requireAdmin in AutoIt3Wrapper.au3 as far as I know.
