FileExists() returns false in error when x86-compiled script runs on x64 Win 7

Reported by: scriptingsteve Owned by:

Version: Severity: None

I have a 32-bit-compiled autoit script that is returning false in error when run on 64-bit Windows 7 for this code:

$Dir=@WindowsDir & "\System32\Drivers\mrxsmb10.sys"
If FileExists($Dir) Then

Msgbox(64,"File found","File '" & $Dir & "' Version " & FileGetVersion($Dir))


Msgbox(16,"Error","File '" & $Dir & "' not found.")


The file is physically in the above location (C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Mrxsmb10.sys). When the script is compiled x86 (AutoIt 3360), it returns false (incorrect). If the same script is recompiled as x64(AutoIt 3360), it returns true (correct).

Is this a bug or a 32 / 64-bit limitation?
