I can confirm this behavior with version

I need more information. What version of Windows are you using? Is it 32-bit or 64-bit? What version of Internet Explorer? How did you install AutoIt (installer or extract an archive)? How are you starting the helpfile? What's the working directory of the program that is hosting the helpfile (you may need a tool such as ProcessExplorer to determine this)?

The button works fine for me on Windows 7 32-bit with IE8. It also worked fine on Windows XP SP3 32-bit with IE7.

The open button works fine for me too in win7 x64 and Winxp x86 sp3 IE7.

Try running from command prompt:

regsvr32 hhctrl.ocx

Closing ticket as works for me and report any issues in the forum so we can help you there.

Hey guys. I'm suffering from the same problem, too. My machine runs Windows 7, and the Autoit works fine with it. When I updated to, the "Open this script" started to works abnormally. Sometimes it can open SciTe but sometimes not. Feel free to contact me for more details. Thanks.

I guess it would have been too sensible to try and provide any of the information I requested from the previous user in your post? Saying "It doesn't work for me either" is about as useful as saying nothing at all which is preferable than saying the same thing somebody else has without further elaboration.

Download this version of autoit3help.exe replacing the current version in the AutoIt3 program directory.
