Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


just compile anything. this has been happening since
Aut2Exe Error
(X) Error: Error copying source to destination file.

this path is nothing like where I have stored the program.
does it recreate a complete copy of itself in %APPDATA%?

  • Resolution set to No Bug
  • Status changed from new to closed

Aut2Exe has been creating temporary files in an AppData folder since What you are experiencing is usually your AV preventing Aut2Exe creating files at that location - the solution is to add that folder to your exception list.

And in future please search the forum and eventually post there to seek advice before raising a ticket.

it's Norton 360.

comment:3 Changed 9 years ago by jmichae3@…

that's not fixing the problem. it's removing it by signature. or that feature is broken.

comment:4 Changed 9 years ago by jmichae3@…

no, i don't think it's my antivirus, I think autoit is broken and has been broken for 3 releases. please fix. if I had a chance to look at the source (I know I could not), then I might be able to identify the problem.

norton is quarantining them heuristically.

comment:6 Changed 9 years ago by jmichae3@…

nope, it' not norton. norton doesn't log this with, it's a bug in the compiler. please fix.

comment:7 Changed 9 years ago by jmichae3@…

as it turns out, it's the fact that I am specifying the .bin files. why the switch is still shown in help and acted on in the compiler I don't know, if it's not supported anymore.

You must compile/built your script as administrator. So, open your IDE (SciTe) as Administrator.

Mr. Javascript, It won't make a difference... You don't need admin access to write to %temp%

AVs are known to mess with aut2exe, Temporarily disabling them might help.

Yes, found the same issue, switching off AVAST givs no error
How I have to figure AVAST then ?
