These are the script-breaking changes:

Some of the following features are deprecated. Deprecated features are no longer documented but continue to work. Deprecated features will be removed after version It is strongly recommended that scripts relying on deprecated features be updated to work with the new behavior. Some features have already been removed and will be noted as such.


  • ShellExecute() and ShellExecuteWait() no longer use the "open" verb by default. See the remarks section for those functions for more details.
  • The return value of InetGet() has changed. It is important to read and understand the changes because it is possible to leak resources if InetGet() is used incorrectly.
  • InetGet("abort"), @InetGetActive and @InetGetBytesRead are now deprecated. The following list shows the new functions used to access the old behavior:
    • InetGet("abort") - Calling the new InetClose() function with a handle returned from InetGet() will abort a download.
    • @InetGetActive - Calling the new InetGetInfo() function with no parameters returns a count of active downloads.
    • @InetGetBytesRead - Calling the new InetGetInfo() function with a handle returned from InetGet()will return the bytes read (and more) for a download.
  • The FtpBinaryMode option set with AutoItSetOption() has been removed. Now InetGet() takes a flag to specify the transfer mode.
  • The URLDownloadToFile() alias for InetGet() has been removed.
  • AdlibEnable() and AdlibDisable() are deprecated. See the new functions AdlibRegister() and AdlibUnRegister().
  • OnAutoItStart() is deprecated. See the new pre-processor statement #OnAutoItStartRegister.
  • OnAutoItExit() is deprecated. See the new functions OnAutoItExitRegister() and OnAutoItExitUnregister().
  • The AutoItSetOption() option OnExitFunc has been removed. See the new functions OnAutoItExitRegister() and OnAutoItExitUnregister().

  • The last optional parameter for _StringBetween() has been removed.
  • The arguments for _StringAddThousandsSep() have changed.
It is important that you update any script that uses InetGet() in the background to properly close the handle. In a long running script that does multiple downloads, you will eventually crash out if you do not close the handles. Edited by Valik
