Unable to open script file

Recommended Posts

killerthc

I have searched and cant find a way to fix this.

I have taken the compiled EXE decompiled it with upx and recompiled with Petite compiler and it gives me this error.

I have also tried compiling the EXE without upx and then compiling with petite but i still get the same error.

is there a way to compile a au3 exe with petite or another compiler other than upx and have the script still run?

The reason for your error is that petite strips what is known as the overlay from programs it packs,

(you probably saw the "There are ... extra bytes appended to the exe .." message.)

Unfortunately this overlay is the A3x binary script section, hence the error.

Some packers offer you the option to switch this feature on/off, or ignore an overlay by default (upx).

But petite does not.

It is trial and error where packers and AutoIt are concerned. Have a search about here, a great many

have been mentioned in the past.
