#2767 closed Bug (No Bug)

'Attempt to access invalid address' in some cases when using #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_requestedExecutionLevel=RequireAdministrator

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Jos
Milestone: Component: SciTE4AutoIt
Version: Other Severity: None
Keywords: Cc: remco.timmermans@…



Under some circumstances you get the error message 'Attempt to access invalid address' when running the compiled .exe.

Sample code


To reproduce

  • Tested with Windows 7 PRO SP1
  • enable UAC (requires reboot if not enabled)
  • Map a network share to a driveletter
  • run the compiled .exe from that network drive
  • you get the error message

If UAC is not enabled you will not get the error.
If you run the .exe local or from unc path with UAC enabled you also will not get the error

I think that's al you need, if you need anything else please let me know.

Kind regards

Hi Remco,

AutoIt3Wrapper will only update the Program's PE header manifest with the requested level, so am not sure how this could be an bug with AutoiT3 or AutoIt3Wrapper.
What version of AutoIt3Wrapper are you using? (is displayed in the SciTE console when you do a compile)

Hi Jos,

AutoIt3Wrapper version is

But since you stated you are not sure if this is an AutoIt3 issue I did some additional tests.
When starting other program's (auto it installer, java installer) from that network drive with UAC enabled I get the same error.
So you are correct that this is not a specific autoit bug. It seems like a windows/UAC bug.
Not sure though where to report this one...

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to look into it!

Kind regards
